I cant seem to find out how to do this. Didn’t this used to be possible from the observer’s profile page ?

It’s not as intuitive as the old version where it was possible to PM from the observers profile page or image. I did a test message but didn’t send it.
Under Forum third heading along Private Messages, I had to click on this twice before I got a menu, under New Message I started typing your name and it’s only when I got to your surname your full name appeared in blue?
I was hoping for a button in the members profile like the old system or along side their name in the forum post.
I’ll try it again in a minute23 March 2022 at 4:12 pm #609197
Well it appears to work as Robin you should have a message but not sure if this new system notifies you?
I had to click on the Private Message tab twice as the first time it went back to the forum menu? something which needs fettling.
Anyone got any carrier Pidgeon’s!

Thanks for pointing me to the new place. I got an email notification of your message with a link to it that did not work. There was a banner at the top of the website saying I had a message which I managed to find but as you say the buttons on the private message page are not working correctly so some bugs there to sort out

It Looks like there are loads of bugs in this function. I have just gone back to read your message and it has disappeared! Also when I selected the message I sent to you I got directed to this site.
Robin23 March 2022 at 6:00 pm #609202
Yep certainly a few bugs to sort out, no reply function on the message I got and when I click on the private message tab it sends me back to the main menu so I had to click on it again to get to the private message menu.

Best highlight that one to Callum and the webops team, just checked my email notification and it indicates the BAA? very odd.23 March 2022 at 10:53 pm #609207
