Private Message Error for certain members

Post by DBZ Vortex on Tue Jan 19 2010, 19:52

Forum: http://dbzvortex.dbzaddict.com/

A peculiar problem that our problem has had for a while now (last 2 months I believe) is that some members are unable to send or receive PMs to normal members. They have errors like this:

What makes this annoying is that when our Admins check their Preferences there doesn't seem to be a problem or anything that has changed to make this happen, and PMs are fine to send from Admins to these members. We've been left utterly stumped by this and no attempt made to fix this has worked in the slightest. Please, can any assistance be offered?

The link to the screenshot is not working.

Do you have the limit to PM's on? Member must post a post on the forum before they can send a PM?

Strange...when I click the image link it works. I'm not sure why - it was a member who had the problem who hosted it.

I haven't altered any of the PM-related configurations, so they should be set to the default one. What makes this particularly confusing is that it is happening not to new members, but to members who have been established and have made a considerable number of posts on the board.

Its because the user disabled their PM in their profile.

Profile // Preferences // Allow users to contact me // Yes or No // Save

You can't disable this in the admin panel.

The members don't have the Preference in their profile...?

Old topic but it's still a current problem: I'm having the exact same problem. How do you fix this? I'm the founder of my forum, and a member can't send me a PM. Was this issue ever solved?

I tried this and it did not fix the problem. Everything was fine with their PMs, but now they have no PM button at all. Any other ides?

Thanks for the help.

Yes I have and now mine doesn't even work. It's when you have an actual PM there that the button disappears. Any other ideas?

Thanks for the help Very Happy
