is there any way to DISABLE asking for a read receipt on every PM?

i always uncheck the box, but would be nice if there was a setting to remember.

thanks

it depends on whether you're talking PMs you receive or PMs you're sending.

if you're getting a read receipt upon reading a PM, then that's on a user's end.

if you're not wanting to send a read receipt, then uncheck the box.

or as you asking if it's possible to totally disable the 'read receipt' box from being checked each time you compose a message?

I'm unaware of such an option.

I'll ask on the mybb community forums to see if it's possible.

thanks. i think it should be an option to send a read receipt, but the box should not be defaulted/checked off.

in: /Upload/inc/datahandlers/pm.php (that should be the directory) go to lines 399 to 408 contain the options for read receipts. Change the 1 to a 0. The code will look like this:

// Requesting a read receipt?
if(isset($options['readreceipt']) && $options['readreceipt'] == 1)
{
$options['readreceipt'] = 1;
}
else
{
$options['readreceipt'] = 0;
}
return true;
}

}

which 1 am I turning into a 0?

I changed this 1 into a 0 and request read receipt is still checked:

Code:
if(isset($options['readreceipt']) && $options['readreceipt'] == 1)

Let me see if I can SSH into my server and find the site which has the code. I recall it was an easy fix, like smack yourself in the head easy. But considering we don't write this stuff, just tweak it, sometimes it is like finding a needle in a haystack. I am pretty sure the above changes should do it.

Let me know.

ok, with the help of azarius, we got the 'request read receipt' disabled by default. now if you want a read receipt, you need to check the box.
