Big community can't leave without its members, which are always upset to contact other forum participants privately. This miniBB extension allows to build a private communication dialog between two certain members, the process also known as private mail or private messaging (PM). Well, probably each of Internet user nowadays know, what it means on social websites, just to compose a letter to the person you find interesting. The add-on ads a social meaning to your forums.

Besides the standard features which are included in almost every script like this, it also provides unique set of exciting options and procedures which you never meet somewhere else. PM function is available only to registered forum members.

How It Works

In your forums, there will be a special PM icon like this: PM icon, it usually appears near each member's username in the messages thread, or under any user's public profile page. Clicking that icon brings a new private message form, where you could type your private comment and send it to the chosen member. In PM folder, all messages are split by Inbox (Incoming), Sent and "Reminding" folders, where "Reminding" means a special folder with the "messages to yourself", and that way may be used to save some forum notes, which you should not forget about. Each messages' folder provides simple and easy-to-navigate interface, where you may quickly recognize unread messages, delete messages, mark them as read/unread, or mark them as important, which puts a special flag near each checked message. Receiving a new message, you will be notified by a special indicating note in the forums menu, so you can check and respond immediately. Reading any message, you can reply instantly, the answering form is provided on the same page and consists of the standard forum form, which your members already may be used to.

We have designed it to be much simpler in usage, than any public webmail service! ;-)

Astonishing Features

The core setting of this plugin is that it's designed to work both with mySQL OR flat-files. When choosing mySQL (as it's suggested by default), the server may lose a bit in performance, however it brings more comfortable backup of the forums in whole. Choosing files module allows to keep a a huge part of the resources on the very active server, if there are hundreds of visitors per second. Depending on your forums load, you choose whatever fits best your goal.

Plugin's users-level configuration provides the following settings:

  • Limit of the Incoming messages per each user, with the possible exception of this rule for admin and moderators; when it's exceeded, a user won't be allowed to get the new messages from others. That way your users should care about the space on your hosting. Depending on resources, this limit still may have a large value!
  • Limit of the Sent messages; when it's exceeded, the earliest messages will be deleted automatically;
  • Limit of Reminders;
  • Anti-spam time - the time period when somebody could only send one message. Prevents from flood lovers.

Each user has an option to:

  • hot! Re-send a message if it still was not read (or edit a reminder that way) - you would rather meet it anywhere;
  • Put certain members in his own black list, that way disallowing them from sending him a PM;
  • Report received message to administration, with the original message text as proof of concept;
  • Optionally subscribe to receiving an email notification when the new PM arrives.

With this add-on it is also possible to install some extra forum-based options like:

  • Welcome message - new member will receive and notice his first PM right after successful registration;
  • Alerting forum message - as soon as a member has been posted specified number of useful forum messages, s/he's able to report other forum messages to administration by a click, that way helping in moderating forums content.
  • Mass-mailing - forums admin is able to send one private message to all in seconds. Tested on hundred thousands of users and still works fast.

PM plugin automatically inherits miniBB functions provided by the other add-ons like Smilies, Preview, Polls, File Bank. That means, a private message could have the same type content, as if you would post it on public forums.

It's really easy to set up, the other boards you have to configure whole loads of crap.
