View Full Version : Suggestion for private message screens...

When deleting a private message, either received or sent, you have to click the check box next to it and then hit delete.

How feasible/useful would it be to put a button on the screen that would check all of the boxes if doing a mass-delete clean up?

There is a way to do that, Mike. It just isn't very apparent.

On top of the list of messages is a blue bar with titles for all the columns in it. Above the "checkbox column" is an unmarked and quite unassuming little checkbox there in the blue title bar. If you click that box, it will automatically select all of the messages showing in the window.

I heard somewhere that a bug in a program can be changed instantly into a feature, simply by documenting it. I guess the designers of vBulletin never heard that one. ;)

Want to hear something frightening?

I'm related to that guy!

Very distantly, but we're related.

Gives me the cold chills...
