Lawrence submitted a new resource:

Quick Message - Allow your members to send a quick message to another member.

Compatible XF 2.x versions: 2.1

Additional requirements: PHP 7.2+

License: Purchasing this add-on entitles you to one installation on your live site and one installation on a password protected test site. This add-on can not be repackaged or redistributed in any form.

Visible branding: No

Conversations are a great means for members to privately communicate with other members. However, if a member wants to send a simple message to one other member, conversations can then become cumbersome...

I just purchased this today, are there any plans to make this more of a stand along addon so it no part of regular messages? Something FB messanger

Thank you for the purchase, it is appreciated. There is no plans to make this a stand alone. The concept of this add-on is to allow members to pass on a message to another member that they see are online.

Also is there a way to get the Quick message under the username in this view, as you see to your left like is says "New member" ?

That's a very good idea, and I'm not sure why I didn't think about that myself. I'll add it for the next release, which I have already added a small change to.

I had no errors with the previous version of the add-on, at all.

This is with XenForo 2.1.5, and php 7.3

Hi, and thanks for reporting this.

I just sent you a quick message, and could not reproduce on this site (XF 2.1.5, and php 7.3). I'll keep testing.

Update, I see that you have Elastic Search Essentials installed. Can you disable it and let me know if the errors go away? I have a feeling that they will, but want to be sure.

I believe it is now fixed. I'll release the update shortly. For now, if you go to the style properties for the quick message add-on, and set the" Display the message user info block link" to Do not display, those errors should be gone. You can leave ElasticSearch Essentials enabled.

Let me see if the errors go away. I should see errors (or none) in the next hour or two, as they seem to come pretty regularly in the error logs.

If no errors, I'll do as you say above and wait for the update. If I get errors, I'll post them to you.

The error has nothing to do with ElasticSearch Essentials, this one is on me. I just reproduced the error when a deleted member was the post owner, so now that is fixed. Thanks for reporting it as quick as you did!

The issues seem to be resolved and I haven't gotten any further error messages after following the instructions above. I'll report back again in a few hours.

I do want to say that the add-on worked fine and as it was supposed to, even though it provided server errors in the admin control panel.
Thank you for your feedback, it's very helpful.

I just released v1.1.1 on fetchapp, you should receive an email from them soon, :)

I have paid for this but unable to get the update?

Hi, an email from fetchapp with the download link would have been sent to you, as soon as I released the update. Did you check your spam folder? If you did not receive an email, let me know and I'll PC the latest version to you.
