Improved messages plugin

Last updated

This a fork of the standard messages plugin from Elgg.

I have done some improvements I needed for my own site, and just wanted to share them with you.


  • Possibility to block messages from non-friends (works best if you use friend_request plugin)
  • Auto update messages icon in the top bar
  • Send to all friends or a friends collection
  • Friends dropdown sorted by natural case (eg. A, a, b, C, d)
  • Forward messages (to friends)
  • Better layout when reading a message (in my opinion)
  • Better layout in inbox/sent  (in my opinion)
  • In "Sent Messages" you can see if the recipient has read your message
  • Users can select limit pr. page and if an excerpt should be shown
  • Find messages with users, easier to follow conversation
  • Let you select an admin-profile all admins can select as sender when moderating etc.
  • Hope I didn't forget anything :-)
