Post Private Messages
If you are a Classipress theme user, you know that standard messaging system is missing a very critical function – privacy. Whenever you send a message to user, system will send an email to user with your email and name.
What if you don’t want that? That’s why I have created this plugin.
With Post Private Messages your users will be able to communicate without seeing sensitive data of other user. This plugin is a post based messaging system.
What does this mean?
It means that message can only be sent to a post (an ad in this case). So message is linked to a post and only post owner and message owner can see this message.
Users will also be able to block other users if they find them annoying. With a simple click of a button, user will no longer receive messages from blocked users. Unblocking is also possible with one click.
Latest version includes also anti-spam options that will enable administrators to do different checks on messages like:
– no duplicated messages
– checking for bad words
– checking for blocked users from Block User Ads plugin
– limit number of emails per time period
Emojis are also supported when writing a message.
This plugin requires Classipress theme to be installed.
You can find screenshots of this plugin below.
So how does this plugin work?
It works like any other messaging system, with a difference that messages are post based. Registered users can not communicate directly to each other, but only trough a post. So, when a user submits an ad, other users comes that is interested in this post (ad) and posts a message to user. New message block can be added to post widget or even template. After that, both users can communicate directly from a messaging template that you ad to a menu.
How do I install this plugin?
The installation is simple like any other plugin. After you activate the plugin, you only have to do 2 things:
- Add a text widget with shortcode
- Add a page with shortcode
- Go to settings and choose your messages page from a list.
Language files included:
No compatibility issues so far.
It is compatible with other EasyCPMods plugins.
This plugin also works with child themes.
This plugin has been tested on Classipress 3.6.x and 4.x.
