How do I work with Private Message Folders?
By default, you will have two folders in your private message area. These are the 'Inbox' and the 'Sent' Items folders.
' folder contains any new messages you receive. It allows you to view all the messages you have received, along with the name of the person who sent it, and the date and time it was sent.
The 'Sent Items
' folder contains a copy of any messages that you have sent, where you have specified that you wish to keep a copy for future reference.
You can create additional folders for your messages by clicking the 'Edit Folders
Each folder has a set of message controls which allow you to select messages, then either move them to one of your custom folders, or delete them. Once you have selected your messages, you can choose the following options in the 'Selected Messages' box at the bottom of the list:
- Move to Folder
- Mark as Read
- Mark as Unread
- Download as XML
- Download as CSV
- Download as TEXT
You will need to periodically delete old messages, as the administrator has probably set a limit to the number of private messages you can have in your folders. If you exceed this number, you will not be able to send or receive new messages until you delete some old ones.
For visitor messages, you check the upper right hand corner of the message, at the end of the messages, you see delete, just click on that. It will bring you to the confirmation page, where you confirm the soft delete.
For actual posts, which is what I think you are referring to, you click on edit, then delete. You must make sure that the delete box is checked, in the lower left corner, then delete again.
If you do have forum questions, it is perfectly acceptable to post in the manner that you have. You will be offered help from other experienced members.
