Default Sending pm's

When I clicked on someone's name I noticed that the "send a PM feature" is no longer there. Now it is only send a visitor message. Do people need to be "friends" to exchange PM's now ?
Thanks
Barbara Jay

When I click on your name all I am getting is "visitors messages" and I can read every message people sent to you

I got send PM for both,Barbara Jay, and Tamijo. I don't see a visitors message on either.
Maybe a mod could help you Barbara Jay.

I just tried this, and when I was logged in, I could send a PM. Then, I tried logging out and clicking on your name Barbara Jay, and I got the visitor message thing you mentioned, but couldn't send a PM to you. I could see the visitor message for you. Double check to see if you're logged in.
Hope that helps.

On the screen shot you showed, if you click on the "send message" tab under the user's profile picture, you should get a drop down menu with the option to private message.

HTH!

I am logged in and I tired clicking on the "send message" under Tamijo's picture and I do NOT get a drop down for a PM.
I just tried all of your names and don't get it either.
I think a mod needs to check why I am experiencing this issue and not anyone else.
It concerns me since people put their home addresses for B/S/T and if they end up in the visitors message feature anyone can read them. That would be the mother lode for spam senders

Hey Barbara... maybe if you ask your question in the site support forum, a mod will see it sooner:

Default Problem sending a PM

When I click on someone's picture to send a PM all I get is " send visitors message. I can also read all of that person's visitors messages.
I asked about this on a thread under General Stamping" and others don't seem to have this problem

I was told if I click on the " send message" under a person's picture on the Visitors section I should get a drop down to send a PM but I do not get that.

Please advise

Thanks!!
Barbara Jay

I posted a message on the site issue sections. I am also not getting any emails when answers are posted to the thread I started .

I wonder if I have been a naughty girl and I am grounded !! LOL

Barbara Jay- i don't click on pictures- I click on a name. For example- you don't have a picture so I have no way to send you a pm but to click on your name. When you do the name it brings a drop down box.

I did click on the names, but there was no send a PM. Someone said when I get the " send a visitor message" if I click under the picture ( is there is one) I should get a drop down to offer the choice of a PM. I did not get that either .
I have always been able to just click on a name to send a PM.
I posted a note on the Site Technical Problems and hopefully the Mods will sort this out
Thanks

I hope you get your problem with the PMs sorted soon, Barbara.
On the Visitor Messages, ever since that option was introduced they have always been public, and there has never been a way of being notified if someone had left you one. You just have to check yourself, so it's normal that Tamijo didn't get anything.
I think that's why most people still prefer to use PMs.

Make sure your javascript is updated, and make sure scripts are allowed for Splitcoast.

"Send Message" Is just above Visitor messages - our formatting is funky this weekend so it's a little smaller than normal. Nothing has changed. I do what Tami does too - I click the name and do send Private Message, but you can do it from either screen.

Visitor messages have always been public.

If you don't see "send private message" under "send message" that means that person has elected not to receive PMs. For example, click on Tami's avatar and you will see that option. But on some people you may not.

Something was sorted out because now I get the drop down with PM as a choice when I click on Tamijo and other names . Thanks !

Before that even when i clicked on little "send message " in the visitor message feature I did not get a PM choice
