    Here a "Private Message" (PM) is called a "Conversation". It's still private.

    Either
    1. Click on the Person
    2. Click on Start a Conversation
    [​IMG]

    Or
    1. Click on your "Inbox" then "Start a New Conversation" (either in the drop down or, the Inbox Screen)
    2. Type the name of the person you want to converse with (can have up to five people)
    3. Send the message just like a post

    or
    [​IMG]
    then

    And one more way, I've added a button to the profile pages. I also changed the word "Conversation" to "Conversation/PM" as people are more used to the PM descriptor

    Mick. I wish to not receive email notifications of "conversation/PM", but I don't see where to select such an option.

    Because you had only just joined, and had not been verified. Try it now.

    For some reason it will not let me private message.

    @Will try going to the top right of the screen where you see your name. Click on your name and then click on the personal details or you can click on conversations

    upload_2014-9-6_20-39-53.
    If you go to your personal details page on the left hand side you will see a menu to select from. Scroll down to conversations and click on "start a new conversation" Like such;

    upload_2014-9-6_20-37-19.
    then this screen will pop up
    upload_2014-9-6_20-42-41.
    In the participants box, you need to type the name of the person you want to PM, and then a drop down box will appear. So for instance if you want to PM @Mick West, type Mick and you will see a blue drop down appear, you need to click on his name for it to send. Just typing the name wont do it (I think I had similar issues when i first started as well), so don't feel bad.

    Similarly, if you wish to tag someone in the forum, type the @ "symbol" in front of their name and wait for the drop down menu to pop up and click the name in that drop down, otherwise the participant won't be notified...

    Good luck

    Added: Or you can go to the "inbox" tab located near your name on the top right. Click on it, and you will see a blue link for "new conversation". Click on that and repeat above. Make sure you select the name form the drop down menu... You will see it appear as you begin to type the name. I sent you a PM as well, so you should have some in your mailbox, try replying to my message to see if it's at least working. The message sent, so it should be all good

    OK, I am trying to get my PM button to work too. Maybe when I post this, it will work

    PM's work after a user has been verified, which is generally shortly after their first post has been approved.

    Is it possible to delete a conversation, and/or block a member from sending me PMs?

    You can click on "Leave Conversation", then "Ignore Future Responses".

    Do I need to send you two on a couple's retreat so you can work out your lil spats? :p

    I can say with confidence that if they really need their spats worked out, it can be done in the privacy of their homes.
