Hey yo how do you PM someone on the new site?
Every time I see this I think “PMS” and am like, oh yes, the happy eaters approach to PMS and cravings. Don’t mind me, sitting over here in my jammies eating chocolate cheesecake and crying at commercials. I don’t know why I keep thinking it says PMS. 😝
I've done some investigating. Private messaging is a much-requested feature, but apparently not available yet. However, members chat is available, so I activated that. You'll now see a blue chat icon in the lower right on desktop or mobile web. On the app, you can click Chat at the lower center of your screen, and then the + sign in the upper right to start a new chat with another member.
I also changed the layout on the forum main page to "All Posts" which should do a better job of showing recent activity than the categories on desktop and mobile. The app still won't sort by most recent comments, only by most recent posts, which makes it sort of useless unless you've turned on notifications for the threads you're interested in following. Liking or commenting on a thread should turn the notifications on. You can also click Follow Post in the upper right of the desktop and mobile websites.
