bb private messages reply all

Postby Jane » Fri Jun 18, 2010 12:11 pm

am I being dense or is there no way of replying to everyone a message is to, other than remembering who and adding their names? It's really annoying.

Hmm. I thought there was but have just checked and you're not being dense, it doesn't exist as a feature.

Am having super-computer-things-fixy day today so will try and add it. Suspect there is already a phpBB module so shouldn't be too much hassle.

Maybe it could work? But it will be a kaleidoscopic blend of mysterious shadows and rainbow hued-dreams seen through compassionate tears.

This appears to already be a feature of newer phpBB versions so an upgrade should add it. If not, I have written a patch that will do the same but I need admin permissions on the bb to apply it.

Milk?

If there's a bb update available then we should get it installed, for security reasons if nothing else.

Well, we're running the version of phpBB that's supposed to have this feature. I'll give it a bit more of a prodding once the painkiller haze has worn off.

No really: it's fucking annoying to have to put them in manually if you're doing a lot of reply all messaging, which I have been recently.

Thanksthanksthanks!!!
