Solved #1534 No redirecting to inbox after sending a PM

Post by multiverse on April 14th 2015, 9:28 pm

the forum used to redirect back to the inbox after sending a pm (little time delay, but still better than no redirection at all) and now it does not.

would like that to return please

Hi,

Having the same problem which appeared a few days ago. Was so surprised that I did not come back to the Inbox.

Thanks for posting this issue multiverse!

Oh btw it is on my phpBB3.

Where is it redirecting to?

It only shows:

Your message has been sent.
Click here to return to your Inbox
Click here to return to the Index


It always returned to the Inbox but not now.
You have to push that 2nd line to come back to the Inbox.

Sorry if I answered...

I never really noticed, but I don't think it ever automatically redirected after sending a private message. Are you maybe confusing it with making a post in the forum ? blackeye


I checked and there's not meta refresh, but we can use the pathname and document title as conditions for redirecting to the privmsg list. Go to Administration Panel > Modules > JavaScript codes management > Create a new script

Placement : In all the pages

If you want it to be instant, paste the following script as the content :
Code:
if (/\/privmsg/.test(window.location.pathname) && document.title == 'Information') window.location.pathname = '/privmsg';

If you want it to wait a few seconds, paste this script as the content instead :
Code:
(/\/privmsg/.test(window.location.pathname) && document.title == 'Information') && window.setTimeout(function() {
  window.location.pathname = '/privmsg';
},3000);
Modification : change 3000 to change the amount of time that has to elapse before redirection. ( 3000ms = 3s )

Note : The document title is English, if you're using another language and the title is not Information, be sure to change it to your language. I'm talking about this condition :
Code:
document.title == 'Information'

The title is visible from the tab name Wink

i didn't confuse anything. it used to auto re-direct to the inbox after a moment. someone with a diff forum said the same thing.

this is an issue with the server in general handling our type of forums.

I have been on 3 different graphic forums for some years and sent PMs daily. All forums are hosted by Forumotion.
We always came back to the Inbox after sending a PM but not anymore since a few days.
Does not matter which browser you use, the function is gone.

However, I will try the above codes but first checking with the members if they think it is an issue or they can live with it.

Thanks for the codes!

Have a lovely Friday!

questions...

will the FM staff return the auto redirect back to normal functionality like before?

if not, inserting ange's code will only do whatever after sending a PM?

I can check with them Wink

The script will redirect you to the PM page after send a PM. Either instantaneous or like before, it depends on what you prefer.

Hello

You are true. After sending a PM, it used to redirect to the inbox. I've reported the problem to our technicians in order to know if it is a bug or a choice Smile

Thanks for your patience  

Ps: Next time, thanks for providing the url of your forum.
