In the readme file of the "addondirectemail" there is written:
Please note, that there is a very big risk to include this option in public site.


Can anyone explain what are the risks?

There is a risk that someone will spam your server. Currently, there is no "human authorization protection" for this addon. We recommend to purchase a private messaging plugin, if you want your users communicate with each other privately.

Somewhere in IF condition at the very top of the plugin script, you need to put additionally checking on user ID so it is not equal to 0. For example:

if($user!=$user_id and $rrr=db_simpleSelect...

becomes:

if($user_id!=0 and $user!=$user_id and $rrr=db_simpleSelect...

I am trying to add a link under the "member name" on the topic page so people can email the poster. I want to elimiate the additional step of having them go to the user information page to contact the user.

It is for a classified system I am setting up. I have the direct email plugin installed.

Thanks for any help / advice in advance.

If your board is set up only for registered members (at least it should), then edit templates/main_posts_cell.html file and paste similar URL near member nickname or wherever in this template... something like:

<a href="{$main_url}/{$indexphp}action=senddirect&amp;user={$poster_id}"> Contact</a>

Hey guys,

I essentially want to do the same thing here, only I want the link to be on the members (addon) page. I have the layout right, it's just the link that I can't get to work as no matter what I try it won't include each individual ID number in the URL... it usually just tries to link to "/forum/index.php?action=senddirect&user=" - which obviously doesn't work!

What code am I missing and where am I missing it from? Any help appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

A link to paste in templates/addon_members_cell.html would be kind of...

{$main_url}/{$indexphp}action=senddirect&amp;user={$userId}

How to include the username of member sending the email in the email message so if someone is found spamming, they can be easily identified?

Try to paste {$user_usr} in the proper place of the templates/email_direct_mode.txt file and that's would be all...

But you also need to know that "registered-users-only" mode for this addon preferrably should be turned on. In the default version it is done so. If user is not logged, his nickname, if not specified, won't be displayed when guests are allowed to send messages.

Writing all this I though I need to update this addon a bit and now you could the fresh version from downloads.

I cannot test this plugin on the test forum. After entering captcha I get redirected to the main forum's page. Is is a bug or a feature?
