Recommended Posts

Hello Blestars :)
 
Today we show you how to add a new option called "My Private Notes" to your "My Info" option on Blesta (We hope Blesta added this to Core :) )
 
This option encrypts all info into the database, so its a secured way to, for exemple add your passwords, links or outher info you like to your personall use :)
 
Like on WHMCS, we use a lot the "Notes" to save some info to remember later, but Blesta didnt have until today :)
 
If Blesta add this to core, on WHMCS import script, also can import the Notes from your WHMCS into your Blesta :)

Note: You can add the "My Private Notes" as a "Quick Link" to show on Blesta Admin Front Page, just click on "My Info" on the Top Right, then click on "Private Notes", and then click on the "Litle Star" above to add as a Quick Link

 

 

If you dont whant do all the above work (you still have to execute the SQL qwery above), and you use the latest 3.1.3 Blesta, just download this file here, and upload to your Blesta Instalation :)

 

We hope you enjoyit :)

 

Regards,

PV

Could you make this a plugin? It would be better for everyone mate but I love this though.

This a very small mod, and I think Its unecessary to make as a Standalone Plugin (more tables, more files, and more coding to do just this actions), Blesta only needs to add to Core to 3.2 :P

If Tyson, Cody or Paul, tell me to make a Plugin insted, I will make a Plugin :) I think its not necessary ;)

Regards,

PV
