  • No PM'S for Admin

    Group,

    Im not sure exactly what I did or what happen, but regular users can see and use private messages but me as an admin cannot see or access or use private messages at all, its like the feature never existed.

    What would cause this? Did maybe some code in the forum home template get removed that would cause this?

    Whats weird is that it is only effecting the admin.

    Assuming you have not installed any hacks or plugins to affect this, you can set this in the Admin usergroup permissions.

      Steve,

      Dont assume. Yes I have installed hacks and plugins. I am asking if anyone knows what would cause this, that is my question in this post.

        Your first post mention nothing about having hacks or plugins installed. If you had mentioned this, then I would have provided a different answer.

            Anyone know what code within Vbulletin would have to be removed or edited to make this happen?

            All the links regarding access to check Private Messages has been removed or hidden, even up where it says the Unread and Total amounts, that link for Private message is gone too. All that shows is the unread and total.

            Just curious as to what code in Vbulletin if removed or altered would cause this as this would help me trouble shoot what I did wrong or maybe what a mod or add on did.

            Thanks

            Doug

              Did you check the usergroup permissions of the 'Administrator' group?
              Or are you in a usergroup that's marked as a Banned usergroup?

              Those are still the most likely options.
              If it's not one of those, you'll have to ask for help on www.vbulletin.org
              Best Regards

                Colin,

                Thank you for your advice. I checked the Administrators User Group Permissions and that definetly was what the problem was.

                Maximum Stored Messages:If you set this to 0 users from this usergroup will not be able to use private messaging.
                I had this set to 0 (Zero) as when I was going through the settings I misread what it said and thought that 0 (Zero) was unlimited. My Bad!

                I sure feel stupid on that one, Don't know how I overlooked that one but It sure caused me alot of headache and time.

                Anyway thank you Colin, I really appreciate it.

                Doug
