There are messages that i "Sent" hours ago.. days ago...still in my outbox... and new replies are not showing up as unread on my
index....

just thought I would mention it. this has caused me to find other ways to communicate.. or, resend and maybe duplicate messages...

no good

The private messaging system here has four boxes: inbox, Sentbox, Outbox, and Savebox.
The icon in the "flag" column tells you if the message was read or not.
The inbox contains all the messages sent to your user account.
The Sentbox contains all the messages you sent out and which were read by the recipient.
The Outbox contains all the messages you sent out, but were not yet read. This is useful if you want to take back or edit a message before the intended party reads it.
The Savebox contains all the messages you saved for future reference.

The only board style which is guaranteed to have all the functions is sub-silver. Unfortunately it's not a great looking style, and not many people use it. The other styles may or may not work as expected. Let me know which style you are using, and I'll check the flag function to see if it is working properly.

I can tell you that all four functions work with the crimson style.

Blue Ice

Postby Yogi » Wed Aug 01, 2007 5:26 am

I'm in Blue Ice now. On the forum index page the forums with new entries have a peach colored square kind of thingie on the left. Those with already read threads have a white one.

If a private message appears in the Sentmail box, then it was read by the intended party.

If a message appears in the Outbox then it was not read by the intended party.

got the not read thing, yogi.. thanks..

and I know what it looks like when a forum was not read...

but, last night.. I am not sure about now, yet..
new posts showed up on "lite"
and they did not show new on my page...

I just thought I would mention it since we just migrated and I wondered if it could be a glitch...

thank you for your attention to the matter...
