PMs: Option to scroll all PMs while composing

Post by Kelly Jones » Fri May 18, 2007 8:32 pm

I realise it's better to use email for longer private discussions, because of the storage limitations of private messages.

But for shorter exchanges, is it possible to have the same "previous messages scrolling window" underneath the composing box, as appears in the usual post-composing screen?

It would make it easier to remember the development of a topic, since the current system limits quotes to the last message only.

I don't think that feature is available in this build of phpBB. Unfortunately the developers aren't taking feature requests at present. When they go back to doing so you can make a feature request at the discussion forum at the phpBB site.

Read this first though: Where to post what

I've followed the search steps using "PM scroll recent" as keywords. There seems to be no modification available.

The phpBB admin suggest that "mod" requests are better supported when you are prepared to write them yourself. Learning php wasn't right up there on my priority list.

I would have thought that the current code used in the main forum's composing screen can be reused in the PM composing screen.

This isn't urgent, since I've been switching PM discussions to email, anyway.

Update on phpBB 3.0:
If you believe a feature needs to be added, please visit the phpbb.com website and see what phpBB Group have to say. Please do not post feature requests to the board at phpbb.com, the group uses SourceForge to handle tasking of new features.

Kelly,

Send a pm to someone, and when they send something back you will see what you wrote to them on the bottom.
