Email option

Post by David Sims » Thu Jun 03, 2010 7:49 am

Below each username within each topic post, there is an envelope giving the option to email the individual user. My board displays the user's actual email address when you hover over it with the cursor, and then opens a new window in my email software.

However, I notice that this board is different in that it only allows you to email the user via the board itself, rather than giving out every user's personal email address.

How can I change my board to match this one in that area?

Many thanks.
David

In your ACP under the General tab, click "e-mail settings". Set "Users send e-mail via board" to yes.
Flying is the second best thrill to cheerleaders; being caught is the first.
