Hi,

For some reason, no matter how many times I log in and view my pms, it tells me that I have 5 new pms.
Also if I go away from the forum to another website and come back it seems to have logged me out and I have to log back in.
What should I do to get these, read several times, pms to not show as New?

Maybe Richard or his hamster can give you an authorative answer, but:

1. Are these new incoming messages? The title of unread messages will be shown in bold font, which changes to ordinary (un-bold) font once you've open them. But the messages will stay in your inbox until you delete them. They should disappear from the 'You Have xxx PM's waiting' notification once they have been opened.

If they are Sent pms, they only revert to unbold once the recipient has opened them, and the unread messages are shown in the You Have.... notification. I haven't found a way of deleting them yet.

2. You will be timed out after a period of inactivity, which is why it is better to compose a lengthy post in a word processor, then copy and paste it into the reply box.

Thanks, they are all incoming messages, which I have opened and read more than once, but whenever I log in there is the message “You have 5 pms waiting” below the Welcome  baxlobs line.
I seem to get logged out randomly between looking at one forum and the next!!

Sorry, but anything else is beyond my pay grade. Sprinkle some grain about and you might tempt the hamster out of his wheel (or bed) to give you the solution  Smile

I've just logged in and it tells me that I have 368 PMs waiting. They are all ones I have read and replied to, but it still tells me they are waiting. If there is a new PM, it will say I have 368 PM's waiting, 1 unread. It's always been like that. Smile

Steve51, I think you might have cracked it.

baxlobs, look at the attached screen shots. The one on the left shows the number of read pms that are in my Inbox and I have no new or unread ones. If I delete any, that number will reduce. The one on the right shows the number of read messages in the inbox and that there are 3 new ones that I haven't yet read.

Thanks all, if that is how it is meant to be then all is well. It is just different to other forums I have used.

I will delete one and see how things change.

”It is just different to other forums I have used.”

Ain’t that the truth  Smile . You won’t find another one like it, and that’s part of its charm. It’s actually very easy to use, once you get the hang of it. Richard writes his own code, so don’t expect to find loads of bells and whistles, but it’s a huge resource of information that’s been built up over the years.

I have tested by deleting one and it now says 4 pms waiting instead of 5, I now know this is the way this forum works.

Thanks for the replies.
