Full Version: Private message default option
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
After i upgrade to 1.8 the users don't have activated the private message option in their profile by default, they need to activate "Receive private messages from other users." manually.
I want that option to be activated after a user is register on forum.
you can run SQL query like below (see SQL queries guidance if required)
ALTER TABLE `mybb_users` CHANGE `receivepms` `receivepms` TINYINT(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1';

And SQL guidance thread has another query to enable receiving PMs for all existing members. Also run it.
Thanks! For all who have same problem, run:

ALTER TABLE mybb_users CHANGE receivepms receivepms TINYINT(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '1';


UPDATE mybb_users SET receivepms = '1' WHERE receivepms = '0'
Bear in mind this is probably theme related; themes that DELETE the additional options on the registration are usually the cause - contact the theme author.
