Private Messaging from a phone

Has anyone figured out how to do this yet? The message button found on a profile page magically disappears on the phone. When I go through the "New Message" feature from the inbox page, it never lets me actually select who I want to send it to. I can type the name perfectly, but once I go to a new box, it disappears.

This is the one thing about the forum that really irks me and I wish it would get fixed.

    I've done that at times, but it screws everything up then. They built this to work for the phone. I shouldn't have to convert to the desktop version to do something that is a major function of the software.

    Yeah, I can actually get to a new message screen, but the recipient never saves, so I can't send PM's. The function is there, but its bugged.

    Skip,

    I just sent you a PM from my Android phone using the mobile version of the forum.

    So apparently starting a PM with an android phone works, but with an iphone doesn't. 0 for 2 with iphones, 1 for 1 with androids.

    Works for me on iPhone. Took me a while to figure out. Click message box bottom left. Click new messages on top right. You then have to type in... As an example DSkip, it gives you a list of recipients with a similar name. It is then followed by an "X" to add additional recipients if required. And then send your message! Works fine on iPhone six with latest firmware.

    Guys, the trick is to hit the comma key after a name. So if I just enter DSkip the list applet never appears, when I enter "DSkip," the applet never fully appears to allow me to select names but I can at least get an IM to a single person if I know their name

    Thanks Danny. That works. Bad design though.
