The DhO Messaging Portlet

Posts: 4417 Join Date: 1/26/13 Recent Posts
It's back!

We've fixed the DhO messaging system, also called a "portlet." If you want to send a message to another DhO member you can now do so, and thank heaven for this nice, wonderful returning capability. Just click on the "Messages" link in the main menu bar. All of your old messages, if you have any, will be there as they were before.

If you use the messaging system and you encounter any errors or have any questions please let us know right here on this new topic. Here's a direct link:

Now, I saved the best for last - please say a happy, heartfelt thank you to our very own Siavash, who is the coding magician who fixed this for the rest of us. So, Siavash.... Thank You!

That's amazing Siavash ! But I already knew you were a wizard...
Was "portlet" the missing piece?

If I may -- I'd like to urge at least a few of you to test the new messaging portlet and let us know if you have any issues. You can message me if you don't want to message anyone else. We'd like to make sure it meets our needs.

Thanks!

Awesome! This brings some hope about the universe too. You are my hero, Siavash!

Is someone on to the task of getting back the date and time stamps to our posts too?

 Yes, we're attempting to fix the major issues that were previously articulated by DhO members (all of us) in priority order. The message boards are our next area of focus, so please stay tuned.  These fixes are not easy to do, so please have patience. Much has changed since the original implementation of the DhO on Liferay, and over the course of successive upgrades and versions. Sometimes the code that drives DhO is in a portlet, which is more or less free-standing. Some of the code is embedded in the core of Liferay. So... it's complicated but hopefully doable.

Linda, would you mind sending me a few messages for testing purposes? Anyone is welcome to do this - we need your help!

Thanks!

Sounds great! I can wait for a long time, no problem. I'm just very grateful if the date and time stamps return on the logs some day. I understand that when a forum gets adapted to suit specific needs, quite a few hacks get done that are difficult to move when the platform changes (or whatever wording is more technically correct). 

​​​​​​​My heartfelt thanks to everyone who is working on this! You are all heros!

George S - I received an email indicating that you sent me a message but there is no message awaiting in my inbox. Did you send one?

Thanks

Yes I sent a test message.

The subject was 'Test message!' and the body was 'Testing...'

It shows in my DhO Outbox as sent on 05/08/2022 15:12

George S - could you please try once again to send me a note using the new DhO messaging portlet? I can't find your original message. Also, can you please let me know how you're finding me in the messaging search? What specific member name comes up, for example, and what do you type into the search function to find me?

Thanks for your help!

I just replied to your message from 'Chris M'

I sent my first message to 'Chris Marti', so maybe that explains it?
