    Awesome plugin!
    Would it be possible to make the messaging quota restriction more flexible. E.g. I specificially need the quota setting to be 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 25 for my memberships. Is that possible?

    Hi there, thanks for popping in, I’ve just pushed out an update that covers all your required options.

    I’d appreciate a review if you have time, always open for enhancement suggestions.

    Just tested restrictions regarding private messages with the following info:
    My free test user -> pmpro_role_10 had the settings:
    – Freely message all site users
    – No message characted restriction
    – Messaging quota = 3
    – Time: Daily

    It doesnt really work. I have written private messages to 5 different user on me site.

    Also, my free test user had 2 messages in the message inbox and I could also reply those two messages. So I think that replies should also be counted in the message quota.

    Hi there, yes all messages should be covered in the quota. I’ll do some testing but am having issues with my hosting at the moment so might be a couple of days.

    Hi there, I’ve done some testing and I think what may be happening here is you are sending the messages to an admin user, these are not counted, the idea is that users should always be able to message admin users so these are not counted.

    OK. Now I created some new users on my site to test and updated the plugin. It seems to work.
    – The “Private message button” now disappears as intended (after reaching my quota).
    – The “Private message button” also disappears when going to admin user (after reaching my quota).
    – If I have a message thread with an admin user I can still reply in that thread – I think this is really a nice feature!
    So I seems to work as intended 🙂

    One thing that might be a little confusing for user is when I reach my quota and try to reply af message thread I get the message (with red background color): “There was a problem sending that reply. Please try again.” – maybe it should say that the message quota is reached.

    That’s great!

    Yes the issue is that this message is hard coded into BuddyPress and there’s no way to alter it, but I’ll take a look and see if there’s any alternatives available.
