Works for my, Betsy, and Dave's name which is all I tried.

Thanks to Vicki for correcting the problem.

I believe Vicki fixed the issue. Let me know if there is no E-mail link when you click on their name. Note however, that some people may have their emails private and are unable to be emailed.


Thanks!

I get the same thing as Carl. There is a header that says Contact Carl Mounteer but no address or hyperlink.

Mike:

I am logged in.

Under "Contact mikesplain" it is just blank. There is certainly no "E-mail (user's name)"
or "PM: Send private message"

Thanks for your help on this. I hope we can get it cleared up because it is nice to be able to contact the poster privately sometimes.

Hi Carl-
are you clicking on the green user's name in the original post
(i.e. dknapp1) ?
when I do so, it brings up a page entitled
"Viewing profile - (user's name)"
about 1/3 of the way down the page are red letters "Contact (user's name)"
& just below that "E-mail address: E-mail (user's name)"
& "PM: Send private message"
Can you please try again?
(make sure that you're logged in!)
If that doesn't work, definitely let us know
as it's a permissions issue that needs to be addressed...

Thanks
~Mike

Dave:

I can't see anything in any part of any profile that shows a link entitled " email user". It certainly doesn't show in my or your profile.

Thanks for your help with this.

Hi Carl! Once you have clicked on a username that is green and it goes to their profile, in the upper left hand part of their profile is a link entitled " email user" Clicking on this link will usually open up your email client and have their email in the "to" box. If it doesn't, let me know and I can show you how to cut and paste their address.

Posting e-mail contact information.

Postby Carl Mounteer on Fri Apr 24, 2009 6:18 pm

Dave:

On the old Forum format, you could link automatically to a write-e-mail screen just by clicking on the person's name in the thread or post. That feature seems to be gone. Instead you get the user's profile and, usually, no contact information. Is there a way to do this in the new forum?

Also, how do I get my e-mail information on the "Contact Carl Mounteer" section of my user profile?

Thanks,

Carl
