I tried that but it says "Error, passwords do not match"???

So I can't disable the PMs.

Please reply! Very Happy Thanks!

Make sure you are in Admin CP... And do NOT type a password to change it unless you want to confirm it.

I went on:

Administration Panel>Users & Groups>Search Users>Clicked on the name of the user>Scrolled down to: Special admin-only fields>Clicked "No" for "Can send Private Messages">Clicked Save.

And then it says "Error The passwords you entered did not match."

The website is: [site removed Wink] I'm not the founder and my username is [username removed Wink]

Hi,

When you go to the user's profile, and you the the black dots, please remove them and them make your customisations.

But DON'T fret, it doesn't modify or delete the password, it stays exactly the way the user made it.

It's a known issue to the techs & unfortunately, to this date, there has been no reason found as to why it shows TT

You could always create a group called "PMs disabled" or something like that, and disable the PM individually on the users, AND THEN put them into the group???

EDIT: But then they could "unsubscribe"?
