  • Visitor Messaging

    I just noticed that i can turn off visitor messaging in the usergroup options. It has always confused members into thinking it was a private message, when actually it could be read by all. Was the option to turn it off always there or just since the last release?

    It's been there in previous versions.

    We​​​ turned it off for the same reasons as you, members were confused and didn't realise they were not private.

        By "visitor messaging", do you mean visitors are allowed to make posts? I allow non-registered visitors to make posts as guests. Is that what you mean?

          No, visitor messages are little messages that can be put on someone's profile page but they can be seen by everyone and are not private, this is where the confusion for some members happens and they put stuff that they don't really want all to see.

            I see. Time for me to turn that feature off! Thanks!

            EDIT: I do think that it is a nice feature though, if only there was a warning message that pops up when they are writing the message to alert them that it is not private.

            I've seen it in use at other forums.

              If you do like the option you could make sure your members are aware and then it could be up to them because it can be turned on or off individually by members in their profile>accounts

                For me it just adds confusion to the mix, and good luck trying to explain it to everyone. If something needs to be said, it can be done directly on the board as a post or by a private PM.
