outstanding! thanks everyone involved in making the p/m happen[up]

10-12-2009, 05:00 AM
cool and it works!!!:D

10-12-2009, 01:53 PM
Ok, I hate to be the whiner, but why can't we just click on someones name to send them a message? =)

But anyway, kudos to all involved. This is something the site has needed for a long time. Thanks for making an awesome site even better.

10-12-2009, 05:54 PM
Yeah, and there is no reply feature [sad]. AND you cant select the persons name to copy and paste. Oh well, I guess it will all happen in time. I'm glad we have the feature now.

10-12-2009, 06:44 PM
Sweetness. This will def. make things easier. Thanks!!

10-13-2009, 01:28 AM
Yeah, this is brand new. We had to start somewhere. Please report all bugs, issues or suggestions you have on this thread.

phpBB is a popular Internet forum package written in the PHP scripting language. The name "phpBB" is an abbreviation of PHP Bulletin Board. Available under the GNU General Public License, phpBB is free software.

Is there a way to make the "1 new message!" notification at the top of the page pop out in yellow or some other color like vBulletin? because I just found out that I had a new message that was weeks old because its hard to notice unless you're looking for it.

how about a sent messages box?

I am dying for one of these! bump!

A bit off subject, but a search criteria of "search titles only" would be great. So many times when I try searching for a specific thread I've already read, I wind up having to skip past pages and pages of unrelated threads.

I'll 2nd that one too! I know I mentioned something about that in an earlier thread.

04-10-2010, 02:12 AM
I vote for a way to see messages sent
if not how do i do that

04-10-2010, 06:23 AM
I wish there was a way to get an email when you have a new message.

04-10-2010, 12:07 PM
I think it also would be nice to get an alert through email when someone replies to a post of yours and show what it says in email (kinda like facebook). At least given the option for those that want it.

01-05-2011, 11:37 AM
so is there a way to see sent messages?

01-05-2011, 11:55 AM

i also would like a sent messages inbox for PM's....

05-12-2012, 01:34 PM
Sent messages! I sometimes will read a message but not have time to reply right then. I'm getting old and forget if I sent a reply or not.

05-12-2012, 02:14 PM
BuellXB should put up a way for us to donate to site improvement ideas such as this. We understand that upgrades are expensive, and I'm certain there are more than a few of us that would be willing to donate what we can here and there to try and help.

05-12-2012, 02:32 PM
The software is typically free, it's the bandwidth that gets expensive. No idea how many page hits this site gets, but that's where the majority of the $$ will go.



Or this.


Or this.


All of those are free and work well. They all have multiple features like messaging, photos, etc. I've set up both the phpbb and smf forums before, they're not that hard to do as far as the basics goes. Adding extras in is usually just a matter of adding a template or plugin.

05-12-2012, 05:26 PM
another feature that would be nice is the ability to subscribe to a thread.

05-12-2012, 07:17 PM
subscribe to a thread and member search

Cannot access pm's it tells me there is a fatal error every time I attempt to access a PM. I have double checked this on 2 different iPhones, an iPad, a laptop and a desktop computer........ Thoughts?

10-11-2014, 11:42 PM
Something with your account I'd guess. Mine works fine. Send buellxb a message letting him know what it's doing.

10-12-2014, 01:42 PM
Just wanted to say its back up and working today, thanks guys!

02-24-2015, 08:47 PM
