  • Various 3.8.0 questions.

    I just upgraded to 3.8.0 and have various questions.

    1.) How can I completely disable the pm quickreply option?

    2.) I just tried the Google adsense thing, and it's nice, but I rather do it myselve. But I assigned my adsense with vBulletin. Do I have to make that undone or is it enough to leave the adsense option in the ACP disabled?

    3.) Lightbox navigation? What is it and where can I see that?

    4.) Maybe I'm looking at the wrong place but where do I find the:
    a.) * Private message reporting and
    b.) * Private message history
    c.) * Private message sorting and filtering. Or is 4c the one that you can sort by Title/Sender or Date? At the top of the pm list?

    I think that's all for now.

    1) I checked the code for this and it appears that the PM quick reply option has no off switch. This is probably a good idea for the suggestions forum:

    The other option is to manually remove it from the templates:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> « » -> Private Message Templates -> pm_showpm

    This requires some HTML ability.

    2) To completely disassociate your account from our integrated Adsense you need to submit a request in the ticket system:

    Once that is done then you can redownload the files without the integrated Adsense.

    3) This is the lightbox:

    In 3.8 the lightbox has links to view the previous / next image so you don't have to leave the lightbox to view the next image in the post.

    4a) See this recent thread regarding PM reporting:

    4b) See this post about PM history:

    4c) You found the sort options. There are additional filtering options at the bottom of the PM list under Display Options.

      Jake thanks again for the quick answers.

      Just a couple follow-ups remaining.

      2.) Adsense: Thank you, but is it necessary, or is it also possible to just leave it disabled maybe to make use of it at a later time? Does it make any difference?

      3.) Can you tell me the difference between the lightbox from 3.8.0 and 3.7.5? Because there is in 3.7.5. already a lightbox options for attached images.
      In the whatsnew it says "lightbox navigation", I only see lightbox display, no navigation. Waht is the navigation part?

      4a.) I will reply in that thread because then I have a problem too.

      Thanks again!

        2) It's not necessary. You can disable it now and re-enable it later.

        3) To see the difference you need a post with multiple image attachments.

          When it's to be seen when there are multiple image attachments, all my questions here are answered. You can change the thread prefix to "solved" if you want (because I can't do it myself).

          Thank you for your support Jake!

            Must it be only one post and if the attachments are in different posts of thread?
