help with sending personal messages
« on: Wednesday 15 July 09 10:06 BST (UK) »
Hi,
joined yesterday, but do not seem to have the buttons/functionality to send a personal message. I also do not have the reply buttons - has something gone wrong with the installation. have checked all my profiles and all are in order

Hi Mike and welcome to Rootschat  ;D
I think you have to make three posts to be able to send PMs, so if you reply to this post then you should be able to PM.
Kind regards

Hi I am also having trouble sending a private message in that I know who I want to message but cant actually find how to send it to her as she is someone who has answered a thread here.

HI

Warm Welcome to RootsChat

New members need to make 2 post before they can use the personal message system.  If you click on the name of the person you wish to send a personal message to it will take you to the next screen.  Click on "send pm" in the left hand margin and it will take you to the message screen. Type your message and click "send"


Good Luck
Sandra  ;)

Morag -

If you go to the link below, you will see that new members actually have to make 3 posts on the forum before being able to send or receive a private message.

I think that the person to whom you send a private message also has to have made 3 posts to the forum, but a smiley face  or an OK can constitute a post!
