Support / Re: Personal Messaging
Last post by jbandsma -
Right now there are only 2 of us on the site, working to get it ready for more. We are NOT emailing, we are only using Personal Message and yet the full name and email address is showing up on those messages. At the moment, notifications is turned off. The other person working with me is offline at the moment or I'd try another exchange and screenshot it so you can see what I'm talking about.

Neither of us are neophytes. We know very well the differences between email and PM.

Support / Re: [SOLVED]Home button

In 1.1 quite a bit has changed in the dealing with the "home" button, now there is basically a built-in home button that is used in certain conditions.

What would you want to do?
Maybe Simple Portal would help you more than just a random "home" button?

Hello and welcome. :)

hmm... I'm not sure.
PMs do not send the personal email of anyone around. I'm pretty sure about that since I receive several PMs and I've never seen the email address of any of the senders.
Regarding the name... the "display name" (i.e. the nick anyone can see on the forum) is sent as "From" parameter of the email, but that's  it. This is part of the design, change it would require some code changes.

What may, but if I remember correctly it doesn't, make it visible "somehow" the email email is the email feature that is something entirely different from the Personal Messages system (and that can be disabled without affecting the PMs or any other functionality).

Then, the body of the PM is sent, sure. But even that can be switched off (IIRC, it's a while I don't check the admin section of the PMs) so that only a notice informing of a new pm i sent.

The only thing right now I can imaging happening and that may resemble what you are describing is that your users are replying to the emails from the PM system thinking they are direct messages, and the answers are coming back at your email address that you used in the admin panel as "sender" for the emails from the forum.

There is a admin/site option to prevent real email addresses from displaying.
But I can't remember where it is actually located.

If don't readily find it under admin
check out theme settings.

DEPENDING ON THAT ...
Users themself, also have the option in their profile settings.

Thank you. I'll be checking both of those.

No. The user's real name and email address is showing up in personal messages that can only be read on the site. I don't want to stop personal messages, only the showing of personal information that all members do not need. I really don't want to stop personal messaging. If I have to do that, I'll have to go to another platform.
