PM on the forum?

Just wondering how to PM a member here? Playing about I can't seem to be able to get the option to private message? Old forum was clicking on the envelope. While I'm here just testing the hyperlink. somewhere over the rainbow

Looks as it's working now.

According to this:

What do the forum icons mean?

it should be the grey envelope beside the poster's name - but that takes you to their Profile. Presumably another glitch to be sorted out.

I thought so Sea Urchin. Thanks for your reply. Still prefer this version of the forums. Once the bugs are ironed out it will be great.

Not convinced about the use of the Greyed Out envelope icon. Just trying to see what happens when I click on it and I get a see through message partly obscured by whatever is behind it on the right hand side. I think it is trying to tell me I can follow something or can view the individuals profile.

Seems strange!!

If on IE then disable compatibility mode. Site works better that way I think. All that's available is to follow or go to profile as Sea Urchin's post and what I also found.

I was looking forward to a message from Dave, no, the other one who lives in Downing Street!

Absolutely right! I didn't realise Compatibility Mode was on, but once switched off the message came up fine.

clicking on the grey envelop when in IE9 gives a different response form Chrome or IE8. You are given the opportunity to follow the poster but still no PM
