About PM's again!

Post by McEve » Fri Sep 23, 2005 9:03 pm

I find myself having to delete PM's I'd like to take care of... :( Would it be possible to make an "export as csv" so I can take care of the PM's and empty the inbox too?

not that im aware of, the phpbb2 style forum dont seem to allow it :cry: the only way i think would be to export the tables from the database direct which would be a nightmare :?

I managed to export the whole inbox, you don't have to do one at a time. It's just that you can't move PM's from the savebox to the inbox that is causing me trouble now :lol:

Figured it out. You can open any PM and the Export button will appear. Choose "Save as" (it will export all PM's, inbox, sendt items so forth), and open it in Word, Excel or IE. I found it easiest to read the file in Word :)

Thanks a bunch!

(hope I didn't miss any bugs with the export... :? Looks good so far, I randomly searched for PM's in the export, and every one I searched for was there.)
