This mod will force users who have a certain number of unread pms to read them before they can view the topics at your forum. Groups can be excluded from this restriction. The error message can also be modified by editing the appropriate language string.

I do not know if it is correct in certain cases, however, it is a good modification that I can see. Also I was looking at the code I leave the translation to Latin Spanish.

A useful purpose for this would be to implement this on a forum with PMs disabled for everyone but moderators. PMs could then be used to warn users for posts that violate the forum's terms of service, not allowing them to continue to use the board until they read the warnings.

They can always just click and not read them... the same way you usually click "I Agree" on any license agreement. Don't know if anybody's read one entirely, LOL :D.

The mod somehow doesn't work.

if someone logs into the forum, he did not get a message window, only that a message is displayed in the form of a 1 message in the link bar

Please do not PM me for support.

I've only tried it out once myself with a second user account.
When I log into the forum I don't get a popup window like the mod describes it

Steve

What about alternate browsers? Same problem?

Steve

Do you have the mod enabled? Do you have a specific number of PMs entered in the settings? Do you have any excluded groups in those settings?
Please do not PM me for support.

larry007

yes, everything was done and no group was excluded

Steve

I'm afraid the mod author is going to have to take it from here. :-\

Hello Doug Heffernan

have you stopped your support for the mod? No answer from you?
