I am new with drupal. Kindly provide us the module name or settings details which helps me for open private message in a popup.

To reiterate on #1: That functionality doesn't currently exist in Drupal Commons and would need to be added through via a patch to the source code.

Probably the most light-weight way to do this is with the modal forms module. But it will require code, as Ezra said. Modal forms gives you an API to develop your own module which would bring a popup upon clicking.


I do like the feature idea!

Attached is a quick patch that adds support for modal_forms. We may want to adjust the URLs (particularly if there's going to be more than just a 'message' action in the future) but this should do for now.

I've made some changes to the original patch, which was lacking permissions, theming, and a few other things. I think we're about production ready for this, but would want another skimming over the review.

    The Modal forms module adds support for opening common forms in a ctools modal. I think adding it here is outside of the scope of this issue.

    hook_init() and drupal_add_* made Devin sad. :(

    The JavaScript should be #attached to whatever render array is responsible for triggering the modal. If it can be triggered on any page then it can be added to the page in hook_page_build().

    Could probably be replaced by ctools_modal_text_button().
