So I have a couple of strange things happening. If I send a NEW message, after hitting send, I can see my message. However, if I am replying (or someone else is) to a message (group or one-on-one), after hitting send it will not show the message, even if I hit refresh. I have to FULLY log out, then log back in, for any replies (my own or someone else's) to be reflected. It makes communicating with someone online nearly impossible. It would actually be faster to move outside of the forum and interact via email.
I have also been told that forum members can send each other private messages from the members tab, but they cannot message me from there. Is that because I am the Admin? And if so, is there a setting I can change to enable that? They can still reach me if they go into the messages area, just not on the members tab.
This is my first forum and I am fairly new to Wordpress as well, so I apologize in advance for my ignorance of some of the correct terms.
