    Visitor messages

    How does one get rid of these visitor messages once they are no longer needed?

    I haven't encountered visitor messages before, but I thought there was something that let you delete them right from the message page. I've checked some default accounts and I don't see anything about Visitor Messages, only Private Messages. If it's PMs, then you click the box to the right and use the delete feature down at the bottom right where it says Selected Messages.

    I also have never dealt with them, but when I look at the visitor message on your profile, Walter, I see that there's an edit link in the top row, and clicking on that brought up a page with the ability to delete the message. This may be because I'm a moderator, but it's the only control I see for it.

    My guess is that this version of VB is actually not set up for visitor messages. If it was, the buttons would read-


    My Activity --- Visitor Messages--- About Me--- Friends

    The buttons here- MOA forum- read-

    My Activity---About Me---Friends


    However since this version of VB is set up to show an activity stream, it looks like visitor messages. As for deleting the activity stream or chosing not to have it visible, I would have to do some thinking about that.
    Does that sound like what you are seeing Walter? Gary

    When I view profile I see:
    My Activity --- Visitor Messages--- About Me--- Friends

    There is nothing obvious that I can use to get rid of the outdated message.

    Interesting....
    Do you see-at the beginning of each visitor message-
    Who the message is from---the day---the time-------------------edit---report---ip----and a square box?
    If you do, you should also see a box that says moderation tools.
    You would be able to click on the square box and then click on the moderation tools and use the choices to delete.
    Let us know if that works Walter, I'm looking at that information from another forum site I help out on (YB). That site is pretty much in an un-altered state and it allows me a different view. Gary
