The other two buttons allow you to enter emoticons and attach media to your messages. Go ahead and try them out !

Last but not least is interacting with messages ! If you click the username of someone's message it'll add their mention handle to the message box, so you can mention them in your message. Additionally when you hover over any message, message actions will appear below it. These actions allow you to quote, edit, or delete a message, depending on your permissions. Go ahead and give these features a try !

my friend and i are big fans of your project that we would like to use on our forum.  Mr. Green

however, we had a little "issue" after installing it.
messenger appears correctly on my forum; we changed the module settings to select our messenger category but when we try to open a new topic, nothing is displayed.
the topics are not displayed, nor the sent messages.

do you think you can help us  ? I love you

(excuse me for my really bad english, it's not my first language TT )

thank you a lot!

Hello,

Like this section said: (No support here), you need to create a support topic, and type your problem there... then ange will help you

Best regards,
Mihai
Exactly in this section, it would be best to ask for help in the topics since these are not official supported by Forumotion.
