Didn't you just know I would have another question? tongue.gif




Why do I need to log in to the forum to read my private messages?

On other fora I belong I can read pm's from the notifications I receive through my email. Am I missing something here or is it just the way the site works?

You should be able to here. Click on "My Controls" in the upper right hand side of the screen. Then click on "Email Settings" on the left hand side towards the bottom. Then check the box that says "Send a confirmation email when I receive a new private message". You should then be sent a copy of the private message by email.

I already did that. I noticed this on the old forum too but never got round to asking. I just get a notification that I have a pm then the link to the site.

It looks something like this for example:

You have a personal message from Redheaded Goddess Forums

chazz has sent you a private message entitled Hello


You can read this personal message by following the link below:

Then of course there is a link to the site.



Is it just me then??? http://redheads.b1.jcink.com/uploads/redheads//post-22-1293390602.gif

No, it's the software. Since I never use that option I wasn't sure what gets sent via email. Unfortunately there's not a setting to receive a copy of the pm as far as I know. At least you'll know when you get a new private message. The forum you're used to probably uses a different forum software.

Oh ok, thank you.

It's no big deal, I just wasn't sure if it was something I wasn't doing correctly. At least now I know. Sometimes I don't have time to log into a forum when I'm checking my emails. I'm sure there won't be anything that couldn't wait a day or two though smile.gif

I know this is an old topic but members can now view their pm's via email without having to log in to the forum as you've requested. There's still a few bugs to be worked out such as html emails and some bbcode not functioning but those will be worked out but it works for the most part. To enable this you have to click on 'My Controls' then under 'Options' click on 'Email Settings' and check the box next to 'Send a confirmation email when I receive a new private message'.
