Yes, I like that idea too. Also, see my comments regarding the editor and preview functions in the reviews area (sorry about that).

Added the PREVIEW area:

Regarding your review about HTML and switch button on editor, it works exacly like SIGNATURES. When you're on HTML mode (checkbox checked), that button isn't available.

You need to uncheck the HTML option. Now the button will appear:

But really was a tiny bug there that wasn't updating the editor when checking/unchecking the HTML option.

I will release a new version now fixing it. :smile:

Will respond to just the initial PM which would allow you to actually have a conversation.

If you got this enabled and receive a PM, will auto reply to the other user. Now you have a conversation with 1 reply.

If the other user reply, nothing happens. This was made to work only when you receive a new PM; not at every reply.

Adriano, simple question (probably not an easy answer).. How do I disable the red warning box that appears site wide letting me know I have auto reply on? It is kind of a pain to see it all over my system no matter where I am. It's like I am haunted by it... :smile:

I need some help please. Installed the hook, but the settings do not come up with permissions and the tab is not added to any user.

Am I doing something wrong?

FYI: There is only one setting for the hook under the hooks tab.

It would be interesting to see an option to let us decide which groups are excluded/ignored from the auto reply. And then a way to disable the red box at the top of the site. I get a lot of messages from guests and random site users who see my name all the time and just want help. Then I also get messages from our moderators when they have an issue... it's the first group, the guests, that really only need the auto reply.

I'm not sure I follow. You can set which user groups can use the feature. Guests? AFAIK, guests can't use PM System.
