How to send PM to other user (ie. privately contacting a user)?

Mon Apr 27, 2020 2:46 pm

In my global settings I have defined
Allow users to send you private messages: Yes
but how can another user send me a PM ?
When I go to my own profile there is nothing under "CONTACT myid" (ie. there is no button or link for contacting).

Too bad :-)
The profile settings (as shown in my OP) should consider this fact.

This forum has PM disabled.
Why?

It has several times I would like to talk to a user in private, without expose my email to all.

We are dealing with immense amounts of spam, no matter the configuration and anti-spam plugins used. Enabling PMs will make the users suffer too.

Hi Normis, I was making the point that its available for those that choose to make it available (to the others in the thread). I wasn't disagreeing with your point of view or your choice to run your website as you see fit!!! Well if you do bend so easily, send me some wireless wire kits for free for my test purposes....... pretty please with Maple Syrup on top!! C'mon roll over again. ;-)

Thanks!
I just wrote a PM, The header says "Sent" plus datetime, but it is placed in the Outbox folder.
What is the "Sent messages" folder for? It's empty in my case.

In similar forums the message stays in Outbox until receiver opens it. While message is in Outbox, sender can still edit it (and possibly delete it). I guess message gets moved to Sent message box when receiver opens it.

I noticed the PM is now disabled again. Was it that bad being enabled?

@anav: There could be many reasons. You haven't been sending too many "fan mail" PMs to @normis, were you? ;)

None, he is arleady in my bad books, no more maple syrup in the mail, until he hires bpwl to help MT with wifi (documentation and coding).
Bugging staff is not usually a good idea.
