Good news!  This website now has Private Messaging capability!  Registered users can now send private messages to one another outside of the forum posts.

Only one requirement must be met:  A sender must have previously posted at least one undeleted message into one of the forum categories.

To send a PM (Private Message):

  1. Click on "Members" in the Forum menu bar.
  2. Search for the username of the member to whom you want to send the message by entering all or a portion of that member's display name into the "Find a member" block and click on the blue "Search" button.
  3. When the member's information appears, click on the envelope icon under the display name.  The message page will then open.
  4. Scroll down past the blank "No discussion" area to the message field and enter your message.
  5. Click the blue "Send" button.

The recipient will receive an email message, sent to the email address they have entered into their profile when registering.  Also, when the recipient logs into the website, a banner will note that a PM has been received.

If you have any problems with this, please let me know at treasurer@lvmoc.net  I'll try to help.

Thanks, Wayne, that is correct.  There are several ways to initiate a message... I didn't want to make the instructions too lengthy, just wanted to include the basics at first.

If anyone finds an additional lead-in for a PM, please post it in this thread 🙂 

Thanks!
