My moderators are too lazy to PM a user, when a thread is moved and invariably it leads to some griping by the movee (sp).

Sooo, this mod allows the thread move process to send a PM to the topic starter (or the poster, if it's posts within a thread) with the reason for the move.

I did this for 6.5.x and now it's updated for 7.1.1

screenie1 is the message that is sent, even if the moderator doesn't include a reason

screenie2 is the same, but with a reason.

Good luck.

Note: updated with bugfix + Ian's recommend on ability to NOT send PM.

Very Very Good wink

Its obvious but yet its not stock wink

I like it more as its a pm and not an e-mail wink

I think i will add this one after 7.2 is settled in smile


BOOM 7.6.+ rocks....

haven't installed this, but it would be good to have a 'do not PM user' - especially if one has to move posts made by the autoposting bot wink

Ok, i found a bug anyway. So now there is an option to allow the Mover to decide yes/no (thanks Ian), if they want to inform the topic starter/poster of the move and why.

If yes then they get a PM with a reason (only if one is supplied). Otherwise they are just informed of the move.

I also added the PM inform on when a Post and all of its replies are moved. Seemed reasonable. Little different wording on the PM and another template modified, but it functions the same.

Only thing i DON'T inform on is a topic move/merge. That is left up to the Moderator/Admin to decide what to do.

The readme.txt is updated in the first post above to reflect these changes.

Thanks Rose,

i'll check for 7.2 compatibility, but at first glance it's probably a drop in.

I was just about to apply this mod and found the following.

In the readme file for step 2.


Quote
Open: /languages/english/movetpost.php

Find:

---
$ubbt_lang['REASON'] = "Reason for moving
---

Replace with:

---
$ubbt_lang['REASON'] = "Reason for moving (Sent along with PM)";
$ubbt_lang['SEND_PM'] = "Should a PM to post starter be sent?";


In our 7.1.1 installation we have no 'movetpost.php' (which is probably a typo) and the contents of the file there is no "REASON" line, here is the contents of our movepost.php file.

Quote
$ubbt_lang['CHOOSE_HEAD'] = "Move post & replies";
$ubbt_lang['MOVE_TO'] = "Move post & replies to:";
$ubbt_lang['MERGE_WITH'] = "Merge post & replies with Post#:";
$ubbt_lang['SUBMIT'] = "Submit";
?>

I just realized today that if the topic starter responds to the PM, it doesn't go to the mod that moved the topic, in fact it doesn't go anywhere.

At first I thought this was very odd, but now as I type this I'm thinking maybe it is more complex than that?
