This board is the new home for david63's extensions.

All of the extensions hosted here will need to be treated as a new install as there is no migration from the original ones to these, and furthermore, no support will be given to migrating any of these extensions from previous versions.


Please remember that David spent a lot of time creating these extensions for you and whilst they are provided for free a donation would be a sign of appreciation - especially from those who are intent on downloading all of the extensions.
(All donations will go to David)

Notes:
  • If you are using any other version of this extension then it must be Disabled /Delete data and the original files deleted before installing this version - you will loose all settings.
  • See additional notes below.
Features:
  • Controlled by a new user/group permission.
  • Users can select which forum their mail messages will be posted in - this can be overridden in ACP.
  • Mail messages can be retrieved either manually or via a Cron job.
  • All actions are written to a log file.
  • Messages can be moderated if required.
  • Option to use a PIN when sending the mail message.
  • Some basic checks for mail "spoofing"
Language(s):
  • en
Version:
  • 3.3.1
Installation:
  • Download the latest release and unzip it.
  • Upload the unzipped files to [board root]/ext/devspace/mailtopost and enable it in the ACP
Configuration:

Usage:
  • An email address is required for sending the posts to - Gmail does work but can be awkward to set up.
  • It is recommended that a new user group is created with the permission to use this feature into which you can put the users that you want to use it - this makes "troublemakers" easy to remove.

Additional Notes:
  • You should set up a dedicated email address for this extension and not use a personal email account.
  • If the subject of a mail message is the same as a topic title in the same forum then it will, at Admin's discretion, be a reply.
  • If you get an error message from Google saying that it has blocked the app then there is a setting within your Gmail account to override this message.
