Hello everyone,

I know that some of you are having problems with the private messages at the moment, with the 'reply' box not displaying.

I've referred this to the technical team for investigation, and they're currently looking into it. I'm hopeful a fix will be found shortly.

If you are affected by this problem it would be helpful if you could submit a 'snapshot' of your system via Support Details. All you need to do is visit the following page, submit your name and email address and our email address, website@gardenersworld.com, at the top when prompted, then click 'Submit'. This will send us a short report listing your browser, version number and operating system:

Apologies for the problem. I'll update you as soon as I know more.

Daniel, will we ever get back the emails notifying us that a followed thread has a response?

Artjak, I now get those messages for threads where I've ticked the request box at the bottom.   I didn't get them for a long while - but have been getting them for the past few weeks. 

Daniel Haynes

Thanks for submitting your Support Details report, dovefromabove, which I've passed on.

Reply to Artjak: I'm sorry you're still not getting notifications. There was a fix implemented a while back, which should have corrected the problem. Could you visit http://www.supportdetails.com and send the report to website@gardenersworld.com? We need to gather details from anyone who is still having problems, so our developers can attempt to replicate the problem and find a fix. Thank you!

Done Daniel. I still can't see or send PMs.  Although they did appear today for awhile

Hello everyone,

Those of you who aren't seeing the reply box in your 'Private messages', it's worth checking your 'forum settings' in the 'My settings' area, accessed by clicking your username, top right-hand corner of the screen. If you currently have 'Advanced editor' selected, choose 'Basic editor', then click 'Save changes', just beneath.

I tried this, and I could then see the 'reply' box in my private messages again. Hopefully this will work for you too, until the full editor is fixed. Not ideal, I know, as the basic editor doesn't have all of the options of the Advanced editor, but better than nothing if it works. Thanks for bearing with us while it's fixed.

I'm not in the office week commencing Monday 14 April, so won't pick up any private messages until my return. Rest assured the forum will still be moderated!

I don't have a task bar at all....not even the all important 'little tree', so will need to go back to 'advanced editor'....lesser of the two evils.

No I don't have the little tree either - so if I'm going to post a pic I'll have to change my settings - but as Daniel said, it's only a temporary solution - and so helpful particularly while the push is on to organise transport for plants for the Somerset Levels etc - we need to be able to exchange contact details safely.

And I can make somesmilies with punctuation
