If you are logged in just click on the username and you should get a menu that allows you to post a private message.

Re: How to send a private message

I have been doing this however when I get to the members page I do not see a tab for the private message feature.

Re: How to Send a Private Message

If the member is posting in a thread you are reading, one can click on their user name next to their post and select "send private message to ....".

From the members list page, click on the member name, when their profile page loads then select the tab labeled "contact info". There is a link there that says "send private message to..."

Hope that helps.

Re: How to Send a Private Message

To illustrate what Four Winds just posted, I'll attach a screen shot to this post. It will show what a member could do if they wanted to send cburger a PM.

Re: How to Send a Private Message

I had not noticed the option in the red rectangle.

That's the easiest option available it seems.

Re: How to Send a Private Message

The member may have De-selected PMs.
Try "test" sending one to another member. For instance, I accept PMs.
