Sorry to spam y'all, it's just that I have too much time on my hands today and anyway, can't wait to get the Fractal Fruit Salad status!!!  :knifespork:

And I'm not sure if this is the right place for feature requests?

Is it possible to have threaded messages, if possible collapsible, with the real thread (messages + own replies)? Starred messages? Messages with attachments even?

Just dreaming the ideal forum... ;)
It's just a jump to the left...

that's not spamming but the actual point of the beta! bombard us with any input you can come up with.

I'm happy to inform you that threaded messages are already possible!
Go to your user preferences, private messaging https://fractalforums.org/profile/?area=pmprefs
and set "display personal messages" to "as conversations".

(i suggest you check "Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default." while you're there)

Haven't tested if they are collapsible.
Attachements are currently not possible afaik - or do you know of a setting for this Sockratease? If so, I am pro activating it!

if not, we could buy an extension like this:

donations like yours just now make this possible!  :)

Ohh wonderful, threaded conversations! Thank you for the explanation!

The attachments: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1974 This one would be free... ;)
Keeps more money in the piggy bank;)

But, of course, seems only reasonable to first have a good look if attachments can be limited to a certain size and or filetype, AND if you want to allow attachments at all ;D I would personally be very happy with that option for sending .frags(a few 100 kb usually) and such

good find, free is always better - and this one is active and supported.
We'll look into it.

looked into it, installed it. seems to work. nice to have feature!

is the file-extension you want to attach .frag (already allowed) or .frags (can add this if you want) ?

Thanks a lot!  O0 This is really great!

And .frag  is perfect, .frags was meant as in more than one .frag ;)
But maybe you could add zip, rar, 7z, etc for compressed files?

Sabine, we just noticed that the pm-attachements modification caused problems in the admin area. it messes with the search function there. as long as we use the admin area as heavily as now during beta (and we still have to find our way around there, with smf1->2 update) we disable that mod.

but as soon as beta is over, feel free to remind us of this and we'll consider re-activating it and not use that search. or maybe we find a solution.

edit: I just asked for support here https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=331969.msg3940853#msg3940853
let's see if we can find a workaround or he'll fix that bug.  :)

And who knows what dougiefresh might come up with :)
