Welcome to the SMF Online Manual

Step 4: Still can not find it? Ask at the Community Forum

And here I am, and looking at all the sections, I still cant even figure out where someone is supposed to post the question I want to ask?

So my apologies in advance for not posting in the right area and I hope someone can help.

Members on my site keep posting they are trying to send a member a PM and I quote...I tried messaging u, but your inbox is full..  I have gone into admin and looked for something regarding PM and "fullness", but I cant find Richard!

Hope someone understands what I am asking and can help the IT incompetent!


find the group the user is in ,in the admin panel, when you edit the group you will see where the limit is set. you can now increase the limit to a higher number.

Thanks, it is just regular members, I think I got into a section I have never been in...And made the correct adjustment...is this screen shot the area you were talking about?

In the future, please don't do multiple posts about the same issue. It makes it harder for everyone.

Re: question about PM limits

Seeing that the other one is solved, and was basically about the same thing - I'll just mark this solved as well.

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum. Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
