    Evening all... I use an iPad . I have noticed that some advice given on here re the actual workings of the forum seems sometimes to not apply re iPads . With that in mind....... How do you do ' private messaging' . I've looked hard and can't see any obvious route. Any suggestions please ?

    Not 100 % of this. Is it the same as a conversation with only your selected choice of person ? If it is I got it by tapping your own title (in my case grumpyvandriver ) on the top dark blue line, by the inbox and alerts.
    Then tap conversation in the menu selection and put in who you want to send your message to. I hope this helps. But I am not the best on tech issues. Probably better instructions available from others though.

    If you wish to start a Conversation (PM) with a member straight from a post of theirs in a thread > touch their username and a new window opens up > touch "Start Conversation" from within that new window (which is that users brief details) > that will take you to where you can start the conversation.

    If you wish to start a Conversation (PM) just from the main board (homepage) > look to the top right of the forum header (white area) > touch your username to show a dropdown menu > look for "Conversations" and touch that to open your Conversation area showing previous chats you've already had > near the top right look for a button saying "Start New Conversation" and touch that > that will take you to where you can start the conversation.

    If you are in the forum homepage and touch "Inbox" (look to the top right of the forum header (white area)) that will show a dropdown menu showing your last 3 or 4 Conversations. You will also see at the bottom of that dropdown "Show all..." and "Start a New Conversation".

    All exactly the same as it is when your on your desktop!!!

    And folks there is a perfect example of why this forum is so flipping' good... Because we have two chaps running it for us who selflessly give us their time completely free.....MistC and CR. Hats off to you both. Please a look at his reply to my query, the detail the man has put in . Thank you , both. Now get yourself your Horlicks and get up the apples and pears, or you'll be late for work!!! But to be serious , thanks for all you do for us.

    @crj ....good evening pal.... had to ask... as you have set a record for me.... adding a “like” to a 2016 post (No1 above) What on earth were you doing so far back with such a minor matter ?

    Evening Barry, I've absolutely no idea :huh: Think I remember reading the post, no idea why I 'liked' it or even read it tbh, wonderfully florid prose though it was :smile:
