I've managed to embed all the other pages within Panels as per the D7 Panels/Privatemsg patch, and the only remaining page is the /messages/view/%thread pages. After scouring the Privatemsg API documentation and the internet, I still cannot figure out how to manually present this view or how to embed it in another location either with the API or with regular Drupal theme .tpl.php overrides.
I need to get a sidebar on the /messages/view/* pages, preferably using panels.
- Is there a function call to produce or print the entire thread list/reply form?
- Do I have to break the reply form apart from the thread list?
- After obtaining the thread list using `privatemsg_thread_load()`, is it possible to pass the data back into the overridden privatemsg-view.tpl.php file?
Any and all thoughts or hints are welcome... thanks guys.
