Private Messages For WordPress

WordPress is going to be more and more popular blog platform. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to communicate between WordPress users until now. So I created the plugin Private Messages For WordPress for this purpose. The idea is taken from PM system of forums.

The Private Messages For WordPress allows users of WordPress blog send private messages (PM) to each other. Users will have their own inbox and outbox. Administrators of blog can control total numbers of items in mailbox of each user group (Administrator, Editor, Author, Constributor and Subscriber).


  1. Download the plugin
  2. Unzip downloaded file and upload extracted folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  4. Set the number of PM for each user role in the plugin option page (or you can use the default option)
  5. Set how to choose recipient: from dropdown list or auto suggest from user input
  6. Now you will see a new menu Messages in the left. Just select Send for sending PM or check the Inbox and Outbox
