    Hi Glenn

    When you go to the link, that short node address in the email goes to a full address
    http://forum.myforum.com/special/pri...-my-topic-name

    So its under Special. But how. and what is special? I cannot see any permissions for this for anyone. I dont even know what Special is for.

    Can you post a sample of the URL it redirects to that displays the "that action could not be completed" error? You can remove the domain if you want.

    We dont have a channel called that either. Thats what makes it even more weird.

    AS you have support, that is the best option.

    vBulletin doesn't have a channel called "Private Message Forum" by default. We have a channel called private messages but you can't post a private message from a forum. So without access to your server, we can't answer your issue.

    Members posting and it going into 'Private Message'

    Hello,

    We have a strange issue which has happened a number of times across multiple version of vBulletin 5.
    Now and then we get a new user, who posts on the forum, and instead of it going into a category, it appears in some 'Private Message' area.

    We get email notifications for every new topic etc posted on our forum, and it says something like this:
    "UserXYZ has just posted in the Private Messages forum of ABC Forum under the title C++ library"

    And when this type of posting happens it gives us the link in email, but when you go to it - it says this:
    "That action could not be completed. Please try again, and if this occurs again please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message."

    Can someone please tell me how this happens and how we stop it happening.

    I think its somehow possible to do this if the User has not registered properly, ie not clicked the link in email when they first signed up, but somehow they are able to post in this Private Message area. But then how it happens other times I am not sure.

    Help would be appreciated.
    Thanks
