Messaging enhancements

From MoodleDocs

The messaging enhancements hack has been designed and built with the contributions of the following people:

  • Darren Smith, Egglescliffe School - orginal requirement and funding
  • Open Knowledge Technologies - original technical design and development


To install and use, unzip this file into your Moodle root directory making sure that you 'use folder names'. This will add a new block directory (admin_enhmess) to your '/blocks' directory and will replace and add some files to the '/message' and language directories. Once unzipped, visit your admin screen and configure the new block the way you want.

The admin_enhmess block duplicates the functions of the standard 'admin' block (and can replace it if you want), and adds the messaging system enhancements function to the block. This function allows you to move users to a white list (can always send messages), a grey list (can only send messages in a defined time span) and a black list (can never send messages).
