I thought I had read someone's suggestion about this some time ago but I can't seem to find it. So, I thought it would be good to bring this up again. Has anyone created a hack (6.41) that would put an icon with the others in the "Post Extras:" area, or elsewhere, that when clicked it would open the "sendprivate.php" window with the username already inserted in the "Username" field?

I used to have this on my forums, prior to a recent upgrade - I had it to the left of Edit, Reply, Quote etc.

From what I recall, it was a fairly simple upgrade - I will see if I can re-implement it this week, and document it - unless I am beaten to it

The hack i linked to above is exactly what is installed to my setup and it works great.

When reading a post, the user has the option of clicking on a "PM" button that is in the "Post Extras" group of that post. It takes them to the PM screen with the "Send To" and "Subject" portions pre-filled out - along with a link to the original post.

if that is not what Pilgrim is looking for, please help us with further details so that we can help him further

Thanks for the link and hack!

I just added it but I'm getting the following error when I click on the new icon:

___________________________________________________________________________

SQL ERROR: Mon, Feb 21 2005 20:19:07 -0600 Unable to do_query: SELECT B_Subject, B_Username, B_Board, B_Approved, Bo_Title, U_Language FROM w3t_Posts, w3t_Boards, w3t_Users WHERE w3t_Posts.B_Board = w3t_Boards.Bo_Keyword AND w3t_Posts.B_PosterId = w3t_Users.U_Number AND B_Number = '48663'
Unknown column 'B_Username' in 'field list'
Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/www/the-highway/forum/mysql.inc.php on line 133
___________________________________________________________________________

I also get this error in the "We Cannot Proceed" table: You can't reply to a post that doesn't exist.

Any idea what went wrong and/or where to look?

Thanks!

This hack was created for version 6.1 and isn't compatible with newer versions. The code needs to be altered a bit so that user ids are used instead of the username.

Thanks... I just assumed that because I specified my version as 6.41 that the hack was compatible, even though it did say it was written for 6.1. I figured it had been updated but the author simply forgot to add what version(s) it was compatible with...! []http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/iamwithstupid.gif[/]
