Private Messages ~Tech Help!

So I have been lurking the past couple of months and have wanted to post/respond to a few things but to be honest I could not figure out this site!  I have read the FAQs from theknot, as well as some of the FAQs that you girls have put together (which are great) but I still can't seem to figure this site out.

I know that to view your Private Messages, you click on the link on the left navigation panel.  I know that to send someone a Private Message, you should be able to click on the link underneath their post.  However, whenever I do that, I am simply redirected to my own profile page.  Am I doing something wrong?  Or does it just take a few days after you set up your page to be able to use everything?

I'm sure I sound like a big idiot here - haha!!  But I do appreciate the help, especially because I am sure that I will be contacting several of you as I get more underway with actual planning details!!  Thanks :)

    As long as you're hitting the "Private Message" link below someone's post, you should be doing it correctly.  However, I just tried to do it on your post to test... and it says "User Not Found." Odd!

    EDIT:  I just tried it on MY post and it worked fine.  How strange...

    Some users have trouble sending PM's---it's a known glitch, and--unfortunately--I don't think (obviously) that they have it fixed yet. My only suggestion in the mean time is to page someone on whatever board you're on/they're on and ask them to PM you and explain you are having trouble starting PM's. 

    We don't get email notifications anymore when we get PM's--so, this might help let whomever it is that you are PM'ing more aware of the PM anyways!

    Sorry this sucks!---I'll pass along your PM troubles to KA! Laughing

    <div>I just tried to PM you, and this happened too---I'm not sure what the deal is!! So, my advice above kinda doesn't even apply.</div><div>
    </div><div>Are you super invested in your screen name? You could always try creating a new account to see if that would work...</div>

    I got this to when I tried to send you my website - I figured since you just had one post maybe you had already deleted your account. I would get a new sign in name and start again - I know it's a pain though.

    Ok so I left my old account as is and created a new one (needed a new email address, etc) - - and as you can see...my previous posts have now changed and updated to the new screenname!  That's wierd since I didn't think that would happen, but whatev...

    however it doesnt seem to have fixed the private message issue.

    RachNRich - thank you for passing this info on to KA. 

    I guess for now I'll just go back to my lurking :)

    Oh my goodness---how strange is that? I cannot believe it changed your SN from your original posts; I've never seen anything like it!
