SMF has a powerful system of managing personal messages. Personal messages (or pms for short) are a lot like posts, but instead of being posted in a topic they are sent to one or more members. Typically, personal messages are private correspondence, and they are only viewable by the sender and intended recipients - administrators cannot view other's messages except through the database.

Persoonlijke berichten kunnen niet verzonden worden door gasten of naar gasten. Als de verzender verwijdert werd een tijd nadat ze het bericht verzonden, zullen ze als Gast verschijnen.

Standaard kunnen 4.294.976.296 persoonlijk berichten verstuurd worden op je forum. Omdat dit een veel hoger aantal is dan de leden die je kan hebben, is het onwaarschijnlijk dat je dit ooit bereikt.

Mijn berichten

Door op de Mijn berichten link in het main menu te drukken, zal je de pagina laden die al je persoonlijke berichten die verzonden werden aan jou vertoond. Dit is je Postvak in zoals je kan zien via de navigatie bovenaan is dit de standaard pagina voor je persoonlijke berichten.

At the top of the page, you will see something that looks similar to what you would see on the message index of a board. You will see a listing of your personal messages. The first column where you see a speech bubble lets you know if you have replied to the PM. An arrow on the image means you have replied to the PM; no arrow means you haven't. The second column is for the date the personal message was sent. Next to that is the subject of the message. To the right of that is the display name of the member that sent it. The final column has check boxes where you can perform check the ones you want to delete and then push the Delete Selected button located under the list of messages. Note that you can sort personal messages by date, sender, and subject.

Upon clicking on any personal message, you will be anchored down the same page to the actual written message. This will look just like how a post would look inside of a topic. Next to each message you will see links on the top right to: quote the message in a reply by clicking Quote, reply to the message by clicking Reply, and deleting the message by clicking Remove. Also note, you can report abusive personal messages to the administrator by clicking the Report to Admin link at the bottom right of the message. The checkboxes located farthest to the top right are also used to delete messages upon clicking the Delete Selected button below the messages.

If you want to view messages that you have sent, you can do so by clicking on Outbox at the left of the page under the Inbox link. You will notice the link will become bold as you are now viewing the outbox. The outbox works exactly the same as the inbox except it shows messages you have sent. Note that only messages sent that have the option Save a copy in my outbox checked will have a copy saved to the outbox.


See the Personal Message Options section of the profile.


By default, there is no way an administrator or anyone else can read your personal messages. Only you and the person you sent it to are able to read what you wrote. However, it is not impossible for one with access to the database of the forum to read them through the database with an SQL command. For this reason, it is advised to not send personal messages that contain private information that you don't wish for anyone else to read.

Sending a personal message

  • Enter the name or the names of the person/s you are sending it to in the To box (the Bcc box can be used to conceal additional recipients of the message).
  • Enter the subject in the subject box.
  • Write your message in the box below. Remember that Basic BB Codes work the same for Personal Messages as they do for posting.
  • When you are finished with your message push the 'Send Message' button to send or the 'Preview' to preview.

You also will reply to messages using the same method.

Label System

To keep better control and organization of your personal messages, in SMF 2.0 we introduced a method for you to apply labels to your messages. When you apply a label you will then be able to view just the personal messages with that label. All of your labels will be listed on the left menu under the category Labels. To manage your labels so you can edit label names, delete labels and create new ones, go to the left menu under the category Preferences and click on Manage Labels.
