I changed the Directory to list display names!
By , for WP 4.2.2

I almost had to delete the plugin until I figured out how to change the directory to display the "Display Name" chosen by user... Privacy is highly important with this forum and also if it displays the username there is a higher chance of the forum being hacked.

So to all those who want to display the user chosen display name go into the file pm-class.php and edit all the user_name ( NOT admin_user_name) to display_name and save and woolaa! Done! there will be 13 instances that you have to change in that file.

I did have an issue with writing a New Message and Reply message in that where the commands bold, italic, strikethrough, code, etc. where not showing up... I have attached a link to a photo i took with my mouse hovering over the error.

Photo example of problem

this is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 5

So simple but does exactly what it needs
By , for WP 4.1.1

Install, insert shortcode and there it is. A private user PM system, with email notifications, and also localized.

love this plugin but whats the relationship?
By ,

Between this plugin and front end pm plugin? The structure appears almost identical and plugin description looks like copy and paste, but the developer names are different. Confused.

Best free PM Message plugin
By , for WP 4.1

I don't usually review plugins as I am not in the place to review any of your hard work developing these free plugins, but I wanted to share my opinion regarding this particular plugin.

After a few hours of testing and even purchase a premium plugin, I stumbled upon cartpauj-pm. So simple ad so easy to use and intuitive not only for admins, but also for the users. I personally don't like plugins which use complicated css codes so I can easily change it to fit any theme. More developers should keep that in mind when they develop their plugins. Many of us don't know how to make any changes and is really nice when you add a plugin to your site wich suits your needs but also suits your theme.

You made my day!

Thank you,

Best plugin private messages to users

Works well, but styles could be better
By , for WP 3.9.1

Installed easily and was easy to use. I even managed to successfully translate it into dutch without any problem.

The styles however are quite ugly and could do with simplifying so that they don't conflict with themes, e.g. the dark grey borders around everything.

timezone issue
By , for WP 3.9.1

I think this plugin is nice,but it has a timezone issue when someone sending message.
i think the author has fixed it in new version.

Simple but powerful
By Plugin Author, for WP 3.9.1

I chose this messaging plugin for use with a patient portal for a medical records system, because it almost did everything needed, and because the code was easy to understand and improve. So I made the improvements needed and somehow ended up as the new maintainer. :)

Many thanks to the author for an excellent tool!

The Best One

It is the best pm plugin for wordpress. I've tried two other plugins but those were not enough good. After spending a couple of minutes to translate, it became excellent!

Great but some issues founded
By , for WP 3.7.1

A great private messages system but it has some issues:

- tiny MCE is showing vertically instead of in horizontal way.
- Users Directory doesnt have pagination
