Questions about new forum

1. Is there a way to send a PM to a member?

2. Is there a way to prevent the sidebar "popups" from appearing? Not only are they annoying, but whenever I click on a message listed in the popup, I'm taken to a page which informs me that the discussion no longer exists.

  • Also, has anyone discovered how to make the last reply appear at the top (if it's actually possible)? There's a lot of scrolling to do to get to the most recent post in a long thread with umpteen replies.

  • I can at least answer # 1 ;-)

    Click the person's avatar or user name at the right of the message, that will go to their profile page. At the top left there is a button called "Connect", under there you can send a private message!

    LOL...they already changed it Steve. Now if you hover over a profile picture there is a drop-down menu which contains the option to send a PM. Well, that part is easier anyway. :)

    In order to find this thread I had to hover over JoeC's profile pic and choose "Recent Activity".

    Sigh....

  • Hmmm...someone must be paying attention, because those stupid sidebar popups are now gone. Thank you to whoever fixed it (probably Lee).

    Elaina,

    Do you see more than this? 

  • In reply to JoeC:

    I don't see an option to send a PM on Nightshadows example above, nor do I see that option when I go out of this page and click on his profile elsewhere.

    Hi meme,

    Yes, I think there may be some small issues at the moment while the new forum settles in.

    I tried clicking on a whole bunch of profiles earlier. All, apart from one, do not show "Send a PM". I've no idea why that one had the option. There may be a simple reason - some checkbox I've either checked or unchecked - or perhaps there's something that someone else has to do! 

    Anyway, I'll keep looking. I guess we have to be patient. There are always teething troubles with major changes like this. Complicated though. :-)

  • In reply to JoeC:

    I don't know if I'm in the right place or not, but one of our Esssentials Cafe members, Alan Smith, is unable to enter the password Corel sent to him via email today. So, he can't get on the site. Can someone from Corel please help him?
  • In reply to meme:

    It's gone...it was there. I sent Joe a screenshot. I think we can expect to see daily changes here until it all gets sorted out.

  • In reply to JoeC:

    I think you have to be friends with the person to see that option because I can see it now when I hover over your avatar, but not anyone elses.
