Email button

Postby myglaren » Sun May 02, 2010 8:55 pm

Rather than have email addresses displayed openly in posts there is a button at the bottom of each members every post that activates your email client and sends to their address given when signing up.

It has come to our attention in this thread that at least some members are not able to see this button

Can you all vote for whether or not this button is visible to you and if you wish comment on what operating system and browser you use as this may be a factor.

Note that some members have elected not to display their email address so the button will not be visible in their posts anyway. The majority should have it though.

I can now see the email in your posts (in this and the original thread), but I surely could not see it in the earlier thread at the time I posted. I could however (at that time) see the email button on other posts in the same thread. Odd.

Using Opera 10.53 on XP.

Not as odd as you might think - apparently my profile had been changed to not show it, although it was still visible to me, as the screenshot shows.
Xac spotted that. Why it should have changed is a mystery.

Can you see the button on the majority of posts though?

I wasn't aware that there was a possible problem before - I just assumed (apparently correctly) that it was because the email address was hidden.

Anyway, I can confirm that it's now visible in the first post (and a few others).

Win XP SP3, IE8

It's the better way, as it stops spambots harvesting email addresses. If you upgrade to the next version of phpBB, the email is indirect, anyhow - like vBulletin.

This is pretty much a dead issue now Paul, originally it was because mine should have been visible and wasn't, while I can see everyone's but some choose to withhold theirs.
Turned out my profile choices had reset themselves somewhat.
