View User Activity?


We have a user on the forum disputing a ban imposed for breaching the site rules for engaging in confrontational PMs with other users and we want to make sure when these occurred.

I know can view all the posts of this user and hope to find a plugin so I and the mods can view PMs time and date, and maybe content if we need to report to any authorities.

Once you have the conversation ID from the master table, you can then select rows from the message table which match that ID.
