[For 1.8] MyConversations: a conversation plugin for MyBB
#1
MyConversations is a conversation plugin for MyBB 1.8.x that replaces the default private message (PM) system. But why replace that system? Because in it, messages are displayed individually and in isolation, so that if participants in a private exchange want to reconstruct the full conversation, they have to laboriously switch between their Inbox and Sent Items folders, tracking down each message in the exchange one at a time, sometimes pages apart.

MyConversations instead displays exchanges of private messages in the same way in which public forum threads are displayed: as a continuous, time-ordered sequence of messages split over consecutive pages.

Pricing
  • AUD 30 for a single-site licence. (Roughly USD 20.55 at current exchange rates).
  • AUD 45 for a two-to-three-site licence. (Roughly USD 30.82 at current exchange rates).
  • AUD 60 for an unlimited site licence. (Roughly USD 41.10 at current exchange rates).
Purchase with PayPal via the MyConversations home page.

Purchases entitle the buyer to ongoing access to new releases via emailed download links.

Following up on a couple of posts in the thread [Services Request] MyBB Conversations Plugin, which Omar G. asked to be moved to a dedicated thread:

I didn't notice on the screens, but it would be interesting to add multipage in conversations from a certain number of messages that can be configured in AdminCP. Thank you for developing this plugin for MyBB.

Yes, multipage is supported, just as for public forum threads. It just isn't visible in any of the screenshots because none of those conversations had more than ten messages, the hard-coded value of messages per page the number of messages per page stipulated by the core MyBB setting "Posts Per Page", which MyConversations currently treats as its "Messages Per Page" setting. You are right that it would be best if this were separately configurable in the ACP - I've added that to my TODO list for major release #2.

And you're welcome.
