Re: [GSoC] Chat-like PMs interface :: discussion before coding starts

I explained everything in the document, but it's probably not clear. The left panel is similar to how different conversations are currently being displayed, one panel for each conversation. Forgot the scroll bar. (We can probably just display all in a single panel) I need to think about the folders ...

Well, I hope this gives a general idea. As we proceed it will get clearer. Feedback, if any, is always appreciated.

Sure thing, this was done in a hurry ill try making a clearer one. visuals and UI which is where I am really concerned. Could you elaborate a bit on this? Do you m...

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

I have a few questions about the core structure. Core backend changes for the PM interface are made here => /phpBB/includes/ucp/ucp_pm.php $mode = “view” : Currently , this is the default case when viewing Private Messages module. If a folder is specified ($folder_specified) and $action = 'view_fold...

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

That does sound more organised and was probably far-fetched as David pointed out.
But its probably not big enough to be a stand-alone project, which is why I'm assuming its not on the ideas list.

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

After some thought, I wanted to discuss the possibility to add a search functionality along with revamping the UI as I'm confident of finishing the UI part earlier than the deadline. (if I don't meddle too much with some of the existing stuff) I know a search overhaul is already planned as @hanakin ...

I am not sure. We didn't want to remake it to be a chat. Just modernize UI.
Thanks for clearing that up. I thought it was to be made from scratch. :lol:

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

Now what is very interesting here is that old messages sent to Global moderators are not displayed to newly assigned global moderator. Yes but sometimes existing group members might not want the newly added user to read older messages. An option to confirm this could be added. Ideally after fully u...

Re: [GSOC 2018] Revamp PM system to chat based

I would also add, that I generally like the option to be able to send someone a private message in a separate thread (read: add a subject to it). This could be useful for example, when you would contact a moderator, as if you have multiple issues, it is easier for both sides to follow the conversat...
