Hi, I haven’t found info. Can it be translated like wpForo with Phrases?

Support
6 months 25 days ago

Yes, it should. Just search for any PM phrase in Forums > Phrases admin page, edit and translate it. if you don’t find a phrase, click on Add new button and add it. The Key should be identical English version, the value is the translated version.

Hi,
Can I set this up so that only a certain usergroup can have access to messaging? For example, I don’t want my usergroup ‘free members’ to be able to use messaging at all, but I do want my usergroup ‘paid members’ to be able to use it.
Thanks! Clare

Support

Hi Clare,
Sure, wpForo has an advanced Usergroup permission settings. You just need to edit certain Usergroup in Dashboard > Forums > Usergroups admin page and enable/disable the “Front – Can write PM” option.
Please read wpForo Private Messages addon documentation:
https://wpforo.com/docs/root/addons/wpforo-private-messages/settings-permissions/

When searching for a member to message, does the autocomplete lists etc. filter out members who can’t private message?

For instance, let’s say I have these two usergroups:

Registered
– “Front – Can write PM” permission disabled
– members: Alice

Customer
– “Front – Can write PM” permission enabled
– members: Bob

Will Bob see any indications that he can private message Alice? Such as in these places:

AutoComplete dropdown

Mail icon in user profile
https://wpforo.com/docs/root/addons/wpforo-private-messages/write-a-messages/

Support

All buttons and features to send message to Alice will be available for Bob. He can send message to Alice using all available methods in this addon.

I will have a forum with more than 300 members and I want to be able to create a user group within these and select around 100 of them, and send some private messages only to this group. Not a conversation, but a one-sided, private announcement to each one of them seperately as an admin. Is this possible to do with the plug in?

Support
11 months 20 days ago

I’m sorry but wpForo PM doesn’t have feature to send private messages to all membes of certain usergroup. You can select members but not usergroups. This is already in our to-do list, but it’ll be available by end of this month. I’ll update here once the new version with this feature is released.

Hi, I realise the price is for one year support, but we are trying to keep the cost down. If we buy any of your plugins, can we just use them longer than 365 days, they just wont be updated? Will this cause us problems?

Support
1 year 19 days ago

365 days are only for updates. You can use the last (within 365 days) downloaded version forever as long as it compatible with wpDiscuz and WordPress updates..

Hi, if I want to update from the 1 license to the 3 license in the future, do I just pay the difference?

Support
1 year 1 month ago

Hi Paul,
I’m really sorry but there is no way to update Single Site License to 3 Site License. However we can give you a coupon code for 35% discount so the 3 site license price will be discounted to approx $35(single site license price), just contact us for farther details.

Hi. Considering buying this for my tiny (<50 users) forum. Can you tell me if it is possible for an admin to PM all users at once using this addon?

Support
1 year 1 month ago

I’m sorry but there is not yet.
You should increase the maximum conversation participants number to 50 in settings then select all users one by one and send PM.

With the Single Site license, can I also use it on a staging site for testing purposes while I have it on a live site?

Support
1 year 5 months ago

The main site and the staging site should be under the same domain name. For example a.com and staging.a.com. However it’s better to not activate the addon on staging sites. It’ll work fine till next version release.

Guest
Eric
1 year 5 months ago

Thanks. Unfortunately, the staging site is under the wpstagecoach domain. I may simply purchase the 3 site license since I really don’t want any hiccups.

Hi, is it $35 per year?
Also, can you confirm i have correct version of WPforo installed (i have latest version).

Support

Hi Stuart,
Yes, this price is for one year. The renewal license will be provided with 20%-30% discount once the current license is expired. But you can continue to use it after 365 days. However you’ll not be able to update it when new versions are released.

And yes, your forum version is correct, you’re using wpForo 1.1.2 version. wpForo PM should be installed with wpForo 1.1.2 and higher versions.

Does the PM system function via front end or will the subscribers need access to the dashboard? When I installed WP foro all my subscribers were routed via the dashboard after logging in until I installed a plugin to re-route them to my home page after log in. I also installed another plugin to only allow me dashboard access as admin (not subscribers). I would like a PM system but only one that is fully functioning with front end access only.

Support
1 year 10 days ago

Sure, the PM is a front-end messaging system, user have no access to dashboard.
Please read the description and see the screenshotes in Screanshots tab, all are already explained and shown here.
