• showmsghdr.js

    From Mortifis@1:103/705 to All on Saturday, February 22, 2020 12:03:53
    Perhaps this should be in Synchronet JavaScript, but ...

    Anyone know the flow of message reading using the stock SBBS setup?

    I have been looking at showmsghdr.js and can effectively ignore messages to or from certain people so the Header is not displayed but the message itself is displayed ... so, anyone know which *.js calls showmsghdr.js?

    Thanks ~Mortifis

    None. It is called via the MsgHdrBodySeparator @-code (by default) in ctrl/text.dat.

    The message *body* display is handled in the C++ source.

    as noted tangentally in IRC, i think you're too close to the bone there... back
    up a step to where the messages are being scanned and approached for display and do the detection/skipping there... that way the entire message is skipped in you don't have to do a 2-step boogie to not display the header and body...

    DM mentioned that it is hardcoded so the best I can get is not display the header .. thanks for the suggestion, though

    i was suggesting a C/C++ code change ;)

    one that might possibly morph into a slightly more elaborate twit filtering patch such that a per user twit filter setup would be viable... granted, there's only a few that some consider twits but the feature would be nice and could possible work like the one in GoldED where the message is skipped entirely or the message is displayed with the message body showing "block by twit filter" and offering the option to view the message anyway... depending on
    the user reading the messages, they might want to read a message from or to an
    entry in their twit list at times...

    LOL, well, hacking the *.c is out of my scripting realm :-)
