Hide private message recipient list

I'm working on a system to send private messages to a group or range of users, but I'd like to be able to set a flag so each person only sees their own username on the recipient list. Is there a way to set custom metadata for private messages without altering the phorum code?

No, there is no such feature.

One slightly hacky approach could be to encode the information in the subject field. You could for example use a prefix like #BCC#<original subject>, where in rendering the page, the #BCC# could be stripped, while remembering that hiding the recipient list was requested.

Im not 100% that you could pull this off in a clean way through module hooks, but it could be an approach to tackle the beast.

I was hoping to avoid putting magic strings in the subject line, but you're right, it does look like that's going to be the only option that doesn't involve modifying base code.
