"Reply to all" [Done]

Postby Magiw on Thu Jun 12, 2008 12:27 pm

Concise description:
  • Add a Reply All Button to PM window so that with one click you can reply to all people you received a PM from.

Specifics:
  • Code can be found at the phpbb forums, received help from the community to get it for my forum and think it would be more useful here. Info at bottom of page 2
  • http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=929805&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=15

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • PM's between multiple players, clan members or tournament players can be handled with one button click instead of looking up individual names.

Can this be done with the new PHPBB...? I would think if it was possible, it would already have been implemented.

This was a gripe I had with phpbb 3.0 and after working with the community for a while and one person specifically today, we got it working...well he did. It's in use on my forums now and he posted the information to work in either default theme. I'm sure their theme here is slightly different, but that is strictly and adjustment in the html, the back end code would function the same.

Then PLEASE can we implement this, Lack?

This would be REALLY freaking handy.

Exactly, when organising tournaments (especially team tournaments) then it would really help. Implement it! :D

I do believe this would be a handy addition (especially if the code is already out there for free)!

'Reply to all'

Postby Gunner1980 on Tue Oct 14, 2008 9:11 am

For the inbox folder (PM's) please add 'reply to all button', when communicating through PM's with many ppl this would make it easier. I know, you will say that we have a forum for that but this is not hard to do and will make our inbox more user-friendly

they have argued away something similar before... i think it is to reduce mass hit spam and so forth which would bring the system down?

Anyway it a good idea and should be instituted.
We should also be able to set up Distribution lists.

Well i'd like to think that now when 1TB costs around $150 a simple 'reply to all' button will not take much of resources but hey, admins would know best...

Tried suggesting this once and it didn't get much attention. Even included the link to the code from the PHPBB forums. I use it on my own forums and it works great! As far as spam goes, we all only get 50 messages, after that you have to clean your inbox out. This is a bit of an oversight on the part of the phpbb coders really, but this is the next best solution that board owners can implement.

A little good news, the new update to PHPBB makes the reply button automatically reply to all:

Release notes for 3.0.3:
- Reply to PM now includes all previous recipients and not only the original sender.

Topics merged:

"Reply All" Button for PM's received to multiple players - posts 12 to 13 June 2008 - first post here
'Reply to all' - posts 14 October to 13 November 2008 - first post here

Please remember to use the 'search' box (it's next to the 'new topic' button) to see if there are existing discussions on a particular suggestion. That way, if you find an existing discussion, you can join in and also see any useful posts - both for and against - that might influence your own thinking. It also helps to keep the forum tidy ;)

Postby Natewolfman on Tue Nov 25, 2008 1:31 pm

so is it always reply all then? because i honestly very rarely need to reply to all, and would just like to respond to the original sender... so do i have to now start a new PM and add his name there, or go through clicking the x on everyones name?

just wondering... lol

yeah i didnt know about this and today i intended to reply to the orginal sender but instead it replied to everyone that the original sender had sent the pm out to, so long story short, i had to delete that pm, reply again but this time, had to click the x to everyone in the list but the original sender.

cant be separate it so that u have a choice to reply only to the sender or reply to all?
