Post by z2z » Tue Jul 14, 2009 3:44 pm

Hi,

This are my feature request for 3.0.7 or 3.0.8 :)

I would love to see search feature for Private Messages and ability to backup selected or full all pm's them as xls, text or xml 8-)

Justified request eh?

Edited : Added Mass Delete too.

You can already export pm's in a vanilla installation ;)
Go to your list of Private Messages and at the bottom is a drop down where you can export to CSV, CSV (excel) and XML

Yup, ask the Q on the correct support forum. Goto http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewforum.php?f=46 :-)

Well, I m aware of that ;) ... Normally Administrator and moderators get huge number of private messages.So its very difficult to backup all with current available backup feature.

In above case, user has to conduct export/backup procedures for 19 times.

Yes, working with a large number of PM's is extremely difficult in phpBB3. Just the other day I was testing something on my live site and got over 4,000 debug PM's on my account (I have it set to send me a PM whenever an error is encountered). Luckly though I've edited mine so I can specify the number of PM's shown on one page (there may be a mod for it), so I could delete them all rather easily. If I'd have been stuck with 25 at a time I'd never be able to remove them all.

Did these capabilities ever find their way into a version release or a MOD release?

I know it's almost a year later but search in PM's would be a great benefit...
Another option I could live with is... DB export of PM's so I could keep a copy on my local server....
There is often valuable information which remains valid for several years... mind you I could do this from the ACP but what if I was not an admin?
