Answering via private message

Post by PadmaVonSamba » Wed Feb 26, 2020 11:05 pm

Hello.
I can’t figure out how to reply to posts where the only way to reply is via private message

The easiest way is just to use the "quote" function then paste it into a new message I think.

If it’s in “Tantra Talk” forum where you can’t reply, click on the poster’s name. Then PM him.

Under the poster's name must be a button that looks like a blue envelope. It's left and called private message. Not email.

1. Click on the 'Contact' speech bubble (with dots in it) under the poster's name.

2. Click on the dark blue symbol which pops up on the far left, next to the envelope .
(The dark blue plain one is 'message' and the envelope is 'email'.)

3. When you click on the 'message' button the message page will display and the body of the message will include the post itself. So no need to copy and paste anything, as the post content is already there.

This is true when you want to message someone about any post they make. If you click from within that particular post, it will be quoted in the message automatically.

N.B. Occasionally, members disable the 'message' function in which case you can't message them.

It's so difficult to describe things you do daily without thinking about it anymore.
