When does this plug-in allow an admin to view or check posts per user? https://gvectors.com/product/wpforo-private-messages/
Greets,

Hi RoundCube,

The name of this addon says that this is a private content. We can't enable it for admins. Most of our customers buy this addon because it's private even fro admins. We'll open a poll and wait for voting result.

Hi Tom,
We understand that it's private content. But you will also understand that the owner also has a responsibility in case of calamities, and also has a protection / solving function so that he can look back and see what has been said and can intervene. That is not possible in an easy way.

Now afterwards, I saw that this question has already been made several times, so it is definitely among your customers.

Where can we find the poll?

Hi Ej,

This is not decided yet, this is still under consideration.

Hi, I see most users do want to allow admins to see private messages. For me this is a must-have. Is there an answer about this?

The 41% of users don't want. This is not a small part. We can't ignore about 40% of users privacy policy. The poll result says we should not add this feature. In case you want to see private messages, you can check it in database tables.

So the messages are not encrypted in the DB? OK, that might be a good option.
