Weird. Can you post a screenshot of your messages page?
Here you go.
That looks like a forum page. Do you have a screenshot of the messages page?
I don't see a message page.
You need to set the URL for your messages page. See http://doc.silverstripe.org/postale#usage
Thanks Cheese man, I got that part (I wasn't clear on your instructions for the URL I am use to seeing "http://mysite/messages" )
So, I have that working, but when I hit send, the message box does not disappear. This is in IE8 and FireFox 3.6. I expected the message box to close.
That's the intended behaviour. I'll look into auto-closing, though. I'm also going to add a SiteTree decorator that will allow you to put $SendMessageButton on any template, so you don't have to be in the messages controller to send a message.
Glad it's working for you!
Mr Cheese Meister, One test case you might want to try.
Use 1 sends a message to user 2,
user 2 replies. Works.
User 1 replies back to User 2 on the same thread.
If User 2 then deletes the thread. User 1 can no longer send messages to user 2 or user 2 doesn't receive them any longer for that thread.
Thanks for the hard work.
