    I may be delusional, so feel free to say so. Many have and many will. [​IMG]

    It seems to me that up until a short while ago I could be in a thread, click on PM under a user name and send them a PM. Then it would go to Messages, since I had sent a message. Now it takes me back to the first post in the thread I WAS reading. Right back to the first post. Which I have already read.

    Is it me? Or has anyone noticed the change in the process?

    I kNOWW!!!!!

    I was thinking I was heading down the dementia path. I was afraid to say anything. ANd I kept thinking I posted the PMs on the thread instead of sending to the person I was PMing. [​IMG]

  4. Something is squirrelly in messages, for sure. The 'replied to' envelope isn't showing again for me (when I replied to messages this morning).

    When we did all the system upgrades there was a bug that was fixed that was blocking the default behavior after you sent a PM. For example, if you were in a thread and clicked the PM link an sent the pm, you would be returned to the page from where you sent the PM. Are you saying you don't like this? To me it makes sense to return to where you were when you sent the pm.

    You also mentioned, "backed up 4 pages"? What do you mean by that?

    Walk me through all the steps of a few examples and we'll see what we can do to improve the system. Explain exactly what happened and what you would rather have happen instead.

    It has done it to me also..............just thought it was supposed to [​IMG]


    For example: reading a thread and I get to page 3, decide to send the OP a PM, click under their name for PM (still on pg 3, just a post the OP has posted) - once the PM is sent, I am returned to the first page, opening post -- NOT the page 3, post that I sent the PM from.

    Quote:Exactly that. I sent a PM to someone who had posted on page 4 of a thread. I initiated the PM from their post on that page and when it was sent I was returned to the original post in that thread, i.e. back to page 1, instead of back to page 4..

    Example:

    1. Read a thread, several pages.
    2. HorseFeatherzNV has posted and I want to send her a PM.
    3. Click on PM under the username, it goes to a blank PM addressed to HFNV.
    4. Compose a PM, uncheck Save, click submit.
    5. Until recently, I would have been redirected to my PM page. Now it takes me to the original post of that thread I was reading, i.e. back however many pages I had already read.


    It's hard to explain this stuff sometimes, lol!

    I'm thinking about having the functionality be the way it was before: Any time you send a PM, no matter where you clicked "PM" from, you'll be sent to your PM Inbox.

    Thoughts?
