Private messages have disappeared on profile pages?


(David Johnson Igra) #1

We’re having users of our 8tracks Discourse forum complaining they can’t private message anyone. I’m not even seeing on profile pages the option to message anyone.

Messages work fine, did you disable all messages in site settings?

Is it because the button changed to just “Message”?

Maybe, did you check the version number in the source? Last I heard they were on 1.1.

Hey guys- for some reason my reply via email wasn’t working. I was able to fix the problem thanks to your suggestion @sam. I’m not sure who on my end changed the setting. Thanks for your help!

there is an admin log so you can catch whoever did it out :slight_smile:

Thank goodness the audit log was there to track which admin was behaving inappropriately and when they did it!

:wink: :email: :cop:

Thank goodness you only use admin like root in Unix, the way it was intended! :laughing:

And thank goodness we have developed mind reading technology so we can tell when admins download the database, if they looked at the “private” messages table!
