Description

When I click a user, I am offered to send him a message. But then I get:

User XYZ can not receive messages
ERROR: No valid users to send the message

1: WYSIWYCA: I should not be offered to send a message if the user has disabled that. (frustrating to write such a message for nothing)

2: tiki-user_preferences.php: "Allow messages from other users" default should be yes

3: tiki-user_preferences.php: "Send me an email for messages with priority equal or greater than:" default should be "3"

tiki-admin.php?page=login
3- Users accept internal messages by default: default should be yes -> $allowmsg_by_default

4- Users can opt-out internal messages: default should be yes -> $allowmsg_is_optional


All these should be the default settings (most logical) if a Tiki site admin choose to activate inter user messages.

Solution

2 is now OK (except that admin sees it as disabled by default, even though its' enabled). We forgot about changing the priority to 3 for simplicity.

"Users accept internal messages by default" and "Users can opt-out internal messages" are now enabled by default.

Messages can now be enabled by just turning on the feature and granting tiki_p_messages.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
