What is a PM?
A PM is a "private message". The Holistic Ferret Forum offers a PM (private message service). This service allows you to send messages/posts to other members. Kind of like a little email service, but within the forum itself. How do I send a PM?
To send a PM to another member, click on that member's user/screen name. When you click on their name it will bring you to their profile. At the top of their profile there should be an option to "Pm this member". Click on that and follow the instructions given by the forum, and you will be able to send a PM to another member.
How do I check my PM's?
To check your messages, go to the top of the screen (the very top) where it says "Hey, _______, you have ____messages, _____ are new." Click on the think that says "You have ____messages"
Is there an option to be alerted when I recieve a PM? I just realized that I have recieved several PMs and I didnt even know!
In order to have a pop up window flash in the middle of the screen to alert you that you have a new message, go to your PM inbox. At the top right-hand corner there is an icon that says "Preferences". Click on that icon and scroll down the page to "notification".
Change the "no" to "yes" under the option:
Would you like an alert box to notify you when a new Personal Message has arrived?
This will let you know that you've recieved a new message.
