Inbox Panel 1.3.0

This plugin adds the conversation (PM) inbox to the side panel. Includes popup preview, tooltips, baloon counter, auto-refresh, links to respond, links to view all messages and start a new message

This plugin adds the conversation (PM, or Private Messages) to the side panel.
The idea is to place the PM box more in the user's face.
Tested in VF Ver 2.1.13 using the VBS3 theme.

The administrator can customize the plugin behavior:

  • The number of database entries to inspect when looking for new messages
  • The maximum number of messages to show in the side panel
  • The interval for auto-refresh of the side panel
  • A refresh button on the panel
  • Option to display new message counter bubble
  • Optional requirement for a role permission to see the inbox side panel
  • Option to shrink the panel to only display new messages
  • Option to hide the side panel if there are no new messages
  • Option to place the side panel on top of other side panels. See the Module Sort plugin by Bleistivt for more control over the order of side panel modules.
