I've had a few users with full inboxes, and it got me thinking. Maybe replace

QuoteHey, Mike Bobbitt, you have 228 messages, 0 are new.

with

QuoteHey, Mike Bobbitt, you have 228 messages, 0 are new. Your Inbox is full!

When a user's PM inbox is full...


Thanks
Mike

Finally! I was waiting for something like this.  :) Also I know there's hardly any space to do so, but would a percentage bar see it's way into 1.0? Or would this be the only thing? Because suddenely having a full inbox would get very annoying and would be un-excepted, but having a percentages bar or even a small piece of text saying how close you are to filling your outbox might be much better..

Or rather than a percentage bar, you could display the limit somewhere on the page of the inbox.

eg, "Total amount of received messages allowed XXX". ??

However it's done, this is a feature I have been waiting for for a long time.  :)

Yeah that may be cool.  :) Some kind of way to tell if your close to the limit or not would be much better. I'd actually give my members a PM quota then!

"Inbox capacity: XXX messages. You have XXX messages in your inbox"  Maybe!?!?

That'd be cool  :) I'd really like a bar like this, otherwise the feature is kind of useless IMO..

The Moderators may send IM if the user is full ?

Mike Bobbitt

I believe mods (or at least admins) can already send PMs even if the PM box is full...

Tom

For each member group you can have a different PM limit (or no limit at all).

This feature has not been more made ?

Hi SMF,

I agree here that an Inbox full notification is definately needed, and a graphical indication of how much storage is remaining would be even better. A storage folder in the private messages would also be useful.

Did I read somewhere that there is plans for major enhancements to the Personal Message system? I'm sure I read that somewhere... :)

Best

Ok ... i've made a little changes for notification :

Sources/Load.php :


Search

SELECT mem.*, IFNULL(a.ID_ATTACH, 0) AS ID_ATTACH


Replace

SELECT mem.*, IFNULL(a.ID_ATTACH, 0) AS ID_ATTACH, mg.maxMessages


Search

LEFT JOIN {$db_prefix}attachments AS a ON (a.ID_MEMBER = $ID_MEMBER)


Add After

LEFT JOIN {$db_prefix}membergroups AS mg ON (mg.ID_GROUP = mem.ID_GROUP OR (mem.ID_GROUP = 0 AND mg.ID_GROUP = mem.ID_POST_GROUP))


Search

'total_time_logged_in' => empty($user_settings['totalTimeLoggedIn']) ? 0 : $user_settings['totalTimeLoggedIn'],


Add After

'maxMessages' => empty($user_settings['maxMessages']) ? 0 : $user_settings['maxMessages'],



In Themes/default/index.template.php


Search

global $context, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $txt, $modSettings;


Add After

global $user_info;


Search

// Is the forum in maintenance mode?


Add Before

if ($user_info['maxMessages'] !=0 && ($user_info['maxMessages'] - $context['user']['messages']) == 0)
echo '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font color="#FF0000"><b><i>' . $txt['IM_Full'] . '</i></b></font>';



In Theme/default/languages/Modifications.english.php :

Search

?>


Add Before

$txt['IM_Full'] = 'Your IM Inbox is Full !!';

SMF 1.1 is going to have this i 'v been told. In 1.0 user never know if his/her pm box is full.

Good ;)

I believe that determining how full an inbox is by number of messages is wrong. It should be measured in bytes.
