With the current issues with the forum, specifically the random loss of private messages (PM's)..

And the staff notification/recommendation to back-up these messages periodically, I created an off-site viewer of your private messages files.

Noted here:
http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=273046


The RPF PMV v1.0

PMV = Private Message Viewer

* It only works on .xml exported file formats

* .xml file needs to be in the same directory as the main .html file

* .xml file needs to be RENAMED TO: messages.xml (as that is the file name the main .html file is looking for to load/parse)

* It only works in Firefox (as far as I know, since Chrome and IE do not allow for local file loading/access).. although there are work-arounds for Chrome if you are interested.

* Currently needs an internet connection (since it loads the jQuery library from Googles CDN) <-- * (this can be updated if requested so true off-line viewing is possible)

* II did a nice chunk of BBCode replacement.. but I'm sure I didnt catch everything..(I tried to cover everything I saw in my personal messages.. but I'm sure others have used other BBCode mark-up that I have not seen... add it to a list and I'll make updates)

Its all JS/jQuery.. no web server required,
Open source.. so feel free to use/edit (with credit given of course).....
Anyone else can throw some time at the REGEX find/replacement section to tighten up the BBCode replacement function (if they are interested)

Feedback appreciated.


* A 'dark side' version that matches the RPF forum theme/styles was started as well.. but not completed,

Works great. Thanks!

Some suggestions: making it possible to order messages on title (ignoring "RE: ") or sender, would be a nice feature...

Thanks for the feedback!


I still have some more BBCode parsing to add... (I only added in replacement code for the BBCode I saw in my own messages.. I'm sure there are many others to watch for... if you see any post them!) :)


I'll looking into adding a sort feature...

You want by:

title
sender (or to in the sent items panel I assume?)
date?

@ TomVDJ


* as requested!

A sortable (by name/date) version!


http://dmstudios.net/misc/RPF_PMV_1.2.zip


This is actually make this release/version 1.2

I had a 1.1 version made.. but it reloaded the page each time you 'sorted'.. hence closing the current panel you were viewing.

The 1.2 version handles it differently, (in real time sorting/displaying)

Two new buttons in upper right corner for you to use now.

let me know it pans out.

Feedback always appreciated.

Maybe I can get a sticky? :)
