Visitor Profile Messages

Please explain what a "visitor profuile message" is, and why nothing readable appears anywhere to indicate what it was or who it was from.

If someone is just visiting to look at profile information, that would not be a "message", so where is the message and how is it accessed?

In the upper right-hand corner of the screen, you should see something like this...
Welcome, The Doctor.
You last visited: Today at 15:08
Private Messages: Unread 0, Total 78.
On your screen, it will say Mountain Man instead of The Doctor.

Click on your name and it will take you to a User CP screen that will show your Visitor Messages.

You can also click on your avatar picture on one of your own posts; and it will take you to the same screen.

Maybe going to your profile and click on the Visitor Messages tab will help?

OK, let me get this clear, when you go to your profile, you don't see any messages under Visitor Messages, right? (I do by the way, the last messages you received were on 30 Jan)

Tell him to click on his Avatar on one of his own posts...Just clicking CP doesn't get you there unless you know what you are looking for.

I'll try to be more succint:

Visited foru.m

Notified that I had a "profile message".

No message. None. No where. No how. No way. Zip. Zero. Nichts. Nada. Nyet.

1. What is a "profile message?

2. Where is it stored?

3. Why does clicking on the box per instructions not produce said message?

A profile message is different from a private message, there is not 'inbox' like PMs. Now people visiting your profile can leave messages there, click on your avatar to access the page and read what people have written.

Got it - except for the part about how this forum can notify me that I have a non-existent message, because there was nothing there.

The last two messages to you are from Half Pint. If he is on your ignore list, that is why you don't see them.

You know, Boonierat...I think you just dipped your wick in the log chipper. I really don't think it's your place to discuss my choices or personal preferences without my prior knowledge or permission.
