Introduction
Gives your users the ability to attach files and send them to other members via Personal Messages.  Based from the same code used to display attachments via posts.  Completely secure!  Only users who have sent or received these files are able to view and/or download them based on their View Attachments Permission for the usergroup they belong to.  Administrators don't even have access to these attachments, unless you report the PM to them via "Report to Admin" link if enabled in Admin Settings.

Important Note:  To ensure PM Attachment Settings are correctly placed and loaded, you will be redirected so that your File Cache will be cleared, directly after installing PM Attachments.  After which, go to: [p]Admin[/b] => Forum => Attachments and Avatars => PM Attachment Settings and complete setup.  Than make sure you have your permissions set for each usergroup.  You will notice the permissions for PM Attachments have been added to the Personal Message Permissions.

Admin Settings
There are two new areas underneath the Admin => Forum => Attachments and Avatars area, called:
o PM Attachments => All options relating to PM attachment functionality
o PM File Maintenance => All maintenance options (moved from File Maintenance tab)

Two new permissions have been added to the Admin => Members => Permissions area:
o View PM Attachments
o Upload PM Attachments

Compatibility Notes
This mod was tested on SMF 2.0.13 and SMF 2.1 Beta 3, but should work on SMF 2.0.3 and up.  SMF 1.x is not and will not be supported.

Will you integrate this with 1.1.10 version maybe?

JungleBunny

Ok, have given this some more thought and kinda in a good mood today... so will do this for SMF 1.1.x for FREE as it will help me get more familiar with 1.1.x versions of SMF.  Just 1 condition...  Need someone to set up a site with SMF 1.1.10 freshly installed on it with all DEFAULT settings (with No MODs installed, and in English language), give me FTP access to it, and setup an Admin Account for me on this forum as well as have PhpMyAdmin installed so that I can check the database for the forum if needed.  Will need account and passwords for the following:  PhpMyAdmin, Forum, and FTP.  You can PM me all of the details.  Will be doing all of my testing for a PM Attachments MOD compatible with SMF 1.1.x at this forum, so will need it to remain up while I test and code for it.  I could use my server for this, however, would rather not, which is why, if someone is willing to do this, I will do it for FREE!

Cheers :)
Solomon
I can help you but why not making them on a localhost?

I found this mod in the Mod of the Month topic.

Have installed it already with no problems at all.

SoLoGHoST

Glad to hear that.  Where is the Mod of the Month topic?

Arantor

Note that any mod installed after this one that modifies the help files will cause a fatal error due to the last line of the help modifications in this mod not being terminated with a semicolon.

The line in question: $helptxt['pmattachments_remove_all'] = 'This will remove all PM Attachments from and sent to all members, including yourself.  Should be used as a last resort.<br /><br />Some scenario\'s that may warrant a need for you to do this, are as follows:<br />If you just don\'t have the space on your server for these files anymore.  If you plan on starting fresh and/or want to reduce or increase the size for the PM Attachments Directory, or change the directory and you don\'t want any files in this directory before you make any changes.  If many users are abusing the use of PM Attachments on your server, and many other reasons for this as well.'

WoW, thanks for pointing that out Arantor, just now fixed and re-upped. :-[

Cheers :)

I would be interested in having this work for 1.1.X as well.  What kind of price are we talking about here though?

JungleBunny

Just wanted to ask the same question...

SoLoGHoST

Are you saying you are willing to pay 30 US Dollars for an SMF 1.1.10 Compatible version of the PM Attachments MOD with 1 year FREE Updates??  If so, you make 2 people.  Let me know either way.

Cheers :)

Hi, awesome mod.

I´m using 2.0RC1-1 and have set it up some days ago.

Now members will need to send a file to me, but i cant seem to open up the files (.rar) just jumps me back onto login screen.

Any idea whats wrong?

SoLoGHoST

Make sure you are logged in, and try again.  Also, you can try deleting the following code from within ./Sources/PersonalMessage.php file, within the PMDownload() function:
// No guests allowed!
is_not_guest();

It's just in there for extra security, but doesn't need to be there as it just brings users who are not logged in to the login screen.  So omitting it should just bring up an error message instead.

Try the following and let me know how this works for ya k?

Cheers :)

allisondk

Thanks for the reply appriciate it

First off, i´m logged in either as admin or a member allowed to add attachments and read them.

However the only thing i can find is this:
// This helps organize things...
function MessageMain()
{
global $txt, $scripturl, $sourcedir, $context, $user_info, $user_settings, $smcFunc;

// No guests!
is_not_guest();

// You're not supposed to be here at all, if you can't even read PMs.
isAllowedTo('pm_read');


Its basicly below all the VOIDS in the Personalmessages.php, but i dont see it within the PMDownload() function :S

SoLoGHoST

Hello again, if you installed this MOD you will see it in the PersonalMessage.php file just under function PMDownload() as the pic attached shows, as I just now did a quick parse on PM Attachments and located the code for you.  I suggest you have another look.  Should be kinda close to the bottom of the file.

Refer to pic attached!
