messaging tests

Kent, You've sent several messages as tests, but there is no means to reply, therefore I am replying here.  I see no reply button, no 'reply all' button.  

There is also no display of date and time the several private messages were sent to me. 

Click on the Link to the thread at messaging test and the reply button is below where it says Participants.  That page also shows the date and time of each message.

Kent, if one clicks on that link, which involves you, Mackintosh, Jim and me, there is no way of seeing clearly who is saying what. I was reading your reply, but it morphed into Mackintosh speaking.  Have a look and think about it.

We must have a clearer messaging system, like the one used at thisisms.com.  I have never had any problems with that one.

Okay, I figured I'd click on the 'new messages' box to take me back to my messages, but no.  'You have no new messages' is what the box says, so there's no way to access messages unless I go into 'my account' again. Can't the New Messages box also have a link directly to one's OLD messages?

Actually, if I look in my account, in one message I seem to be talking very, very quietly to myself, and at the bottom I am having a similarly silent discussion with Simrao!

OK, thanks for the feedback:

  1. I've added some styling to divide out the messages and the message threads
  2. Looks like there are some caching issues with the new messages block - which I have remedied now.

The new messages block now says "This block is broken or missing. You may be missing content or you might need to enable the original module."

So another fun day. I now have four conversations with no titles that I can't open,  including  one where I seem to be talking to myself.

Sarah, I have deleted those rogue message threads and made it so that threads cannot be created without a title or a participant.

Kent, but you have also deleted one that I was halfway through reading: I blinked and it was gone! It was quite important I think but luckily I have her email address.

(edit:  sorry, the message was on page two, which yesterday, I didn't have, along with all the messages which suddenly appeared out of nowhere!)

Kent and Jim, the first time I ever took part in a site like this, was thisisms.com.  Everything was easy, although at the time I was rather brain fogged. Now, here, things are going wrong all over the place.  Thinking that I own the site, many new people are complaining to me, Ho hum!

If we need documents to explain to us how to send messages, that seems to suggest to me that it's not as user friendly or intuitive as it should be, especially considering that many who come here are ill and brain-fogged.

Quite!

Can I make a suggestion regarding sending a message?

My suggestion is as follows:

A button that says "Create message".

That could fit neatly below a a button marked "Create blog" and another that says "Create forum topic".

What do you think? Do you think that all sounds too simple?

But Kent, when you see this​, can you do anything to help that new member called MSG etc?

My two cents... it’s difficult to find my active threads so I can give and get feedback. The subject lines change and then I’m guessing. It’s frustrating. With brain fog, it’s hard to remember which discussion I replied to. Sad, I’m only 50 lol. Also, sometimes I wished we had a chat room but then I suppose we would need monitors. I suppose I appreciate my connections on this site. It’s like we are all whitwater rafting together- some are experts, some novice, some new to the cpn adventure. At any rate, the cure seems pretty scary when we begin the journey but when you know more about it, it’s not quite so bad. We didn’t choose this adventure but it’s before us nonetheless.  The new website proves to be a rough patch but we will get through this too. I’m grateful for those who have gone before me...to lead the way, to reassure, to not be alone. And I’m grateful to see new people finding the site.

2003 Asthma diagnosis - 2004 took doxycycline per Dr. David Hahn work - asthma free. 2014 developed upper body myalgia/arthritis and asthma returned. Dec 2015 c pneumonia bloodwork IGG titer 1:512. Took 6 months of doxy for asthma flare up - again asthma gone but myalgia stayed. Dec 2017, extreme fatigue started. Emailed Dr. Wheldon. Research on cpnhelp.org - Jan 2, 2018 started Wheldon protocol.

As a result of feedback, I have gone back and looked at how the Messages were structured in the old site.  I've made changes to the way it is presented in the current site so that it mirrors that behaviour.  You should now find the messages more intuitive to use.

No Kent, I for one, am not particularly looking for my messaging to be more intuitive to use, but what I want is for all the new people coming to the site to be able to send private messages to other members easily.  Too many people are ending up writing to me using Facebook or somewhere else.  For instance, I had a blank spot on my messaging where Simrao had presumably tried to write but failed.  A couple of weeks later a message arrived which didn't sound like the original one.

I think Jim might be better getting a completely different messaging module to install alongside the Drupal software.  Supaguy's suggestions sound like what people would find easier.
