Replied Image for PMs has been disabled

Post by Diablo0 » Thu Feb 25, 2010 2:12 am

In preparation for the upgrade to phpBB3 coming in the near future I've disabled the PM replied image modification.

Before, when you replied to a PM the image changed from your standard Read or Unread image to a little arrow indicating to you that you have replied to the PM. It's really quite a useful modification, for me at least to show me at a glance which PMs I've replied to and which I haven't. However, this modification presents a problem when upgrading to phpBB3.

During the update to phpBB3 it pulls all the information such as posts, PMs, user information and puts it into a new database for phpBB3 to use. When it pulls this information it doesn't pull in the PMs that have the replied marker. Most of you reply to all of your PMs and because of that most everyones PMs would not transfer over to the new forum and I'd say that's quite a major problem.

I have a solution to get around this but just in case I have disabled this modification until the update takes place. If I can't get my solution to work at least most of your recent PMs from now until then will transfer over just fine and you won't lose your most recent PMs.

If you have any questions please let me know.

My solution appears to have worked so when we upgrade to phpBB3 all PMs should transfer over just fine. :thumbup:
