Message Outbox

( #762476=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Help for this page

This page is all about sending a private message to another user or group. It is analogous to the "send to user" function of the Message Inbox, or to typing
    /msg username ...
in the Chatterbox, but without all the other baggage those nodes carry.

The same underlying function sends the message in each of these cases, so you will see similar behavior in exceptional conditions, such as when the specified recipient does not exist, or if you attempt to send the same message twice.

Learn about how to link to the Message Outbox.

[davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
[james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
[stevieb]: ...and throw some of your existing code into the equation as well, just so readers know you've given a try at it ;)
[james28909]: ok
[stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
[davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
