Better Messages Menu

BETTER MESSAGES MENU v1.1
By Dougiefresh -> Link to Mod


Introduction
This mod alters the main menu's "My Messages" menu to bring all the functionality of the PM system to the main forum's menu bar.

This mod was inspired by tip provided by snow in Lazy Admin Menu in order to make it easier for the user to navigate straight to where they want to go.

The only difference is that this mod built dynamically, so that any changes to the profile menu are shown immediately.

Compatibility Notes
This mod was tested on SMF 2.0.14, but should work on any version of SMF 2.0.x.  SMF 1.x will not be supported.

SMF 2.1 Beta 3 will not be supported by this mod, as this mod seeks to duplicate the new functionality of the SMF 2.1 beta series for the SMF 2.0.x series.

Changelog
The changelog has been removed and can be seen at XPtsp.com.

I just installed it but I do not fully understand the function it fulfills ... Does not it have an image that shows what it does?

Just curious, but what exactly does this do on 2.1 given the messages item was moved out of the main menu back before beta 1?
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

(In a high-and-mighty-like tone...) Well, if you must know.....  O:)  Not a damn thing.  I missed that in the compatibility notes....   :P

Thank you, Arantor, for pointing that out!

Uploaded v1.1 - November 26th, 2017
o Updated documentation to properly reflect SMF 2.1 Beta 3 status.
o Fixed package-info.xml so that Subs-BetterMessages.php gets installed.



@Everybody:  I fixed the package-info.xml file so that the file gets moved during installation.  Sorry for the confusion....

@Rock Lee:  Before and After screenshot is attached.  Yes, it is working now.....

I did wonder :P

Nice job.

@dougiefresh How strange I did not see it and that left the cursor for a while ... maybe it was a few layered errors to have it in local but the modification seems very good!

Well, when I installed v1.0.x, I didn't see the changes it was supposed to effect.....  Turns out the file responsible for doing said changes wasn't present....  Putting the file in place made the thing work, so the package installer was modified so that the file was correctly copied.

Ah then it was because of that, now while I'm letting down some things, I'm going to try it again to see how it is.
