Unable to find how to send a private message

Sometimes I like to reply to a question on a photo post by private message, to be sure the individual sees my response. I have been unable to figure out how to send a private message on the updated site. Would someone a whole lot smarter than I please give me directions? Thanks so much, in advance.

it is not an easy task. You go to my messages. From there you click on new messages. Now here is the fun……not…part. Choosing the recipient can take you foreverrrr. I think I was cross eyed by the time I found your name to send you something to make sure it went thru.

Goreti beat me to it!! Posted exactly what I was going to say!! I think the big difficulty is the drop down menu. I believe it’s a list of decorators each person follows. But list isn’t in alphabetical order. So you literally have to scroll and scroll. Not very efficient. I’d much rather just type in a name and be done with it. Or click on a envelope icon on a decorators page.
Michal & Martin….a fix please.

Thank you Goreti and June! I agree with both of you, that sounds like an unnecessarily difficult route to send a message. It was very easy before the update to the site. Maybe someone will change it. Thanks, again.

To make the search for a recipient a bit easier is to type the first letter and keep typing it until you find the person. For example, I typed S for Sandra and I was able to find you quite quickly. I hope it helps. I do agree it need improvement.


Darina, typing letter does not seem to be an option when I used my iPad. I did actually turn on my computer to test it there and it does give me that option. I guess it depends on what you are using.

I just checked on my iMac and the option to add a letter is not available to me either. Thanks, Darina.
