Hey guys, maybe I'm overlooking it or something, but is there a way to search through your PMs yet? It's getting difficult to search through 74 pages of messages xD .

no, it's not possible at the moment.

Speaking of which, it is advised to clean up your inbox in the event of forum software change

Please, please re-implement the search function for PMs!

I hear you. this piece of software doesn't have the functionality built in and requires a plugin. Unfortunately plugins are often abandoned and never updated. Also I need to check them regularly to see if they have been updated and if so perform all the steps required for the update... and I wish I had time for all of that.

Would it be easier to make the "export this view" button work on all the PMs somehow, instead of the current page? This way people could then export all their PMs in one step and then search through that CSV/XML file on their local PCs.

an export function wouldn't be terribly difficult to do, but still I'm already stretched, if anyone wants to help...

I never worked with PHP, or web stuff ...

Would it kill the performance to have the "35 private posts / page" number changed to something much larger (e.g. 10000) ? Then people would only have to export one CSV to search at home. Instant PM backup as bonus, too.
