  • What are "Visitor Messages" and where are they?

    So I recently opened my site to the public, and today I get a notice that a user has added a "visitor Message" . I've never even heard of this.

    If I go to the user's account by clicking on the user's name/avatar, I can see the contents of this visitor message shows up on their profile.

    But If I go to the node id that was in the email notice sent to me, there's nothing there. The breadcrumbs read Home > Special > Visitor Messages, but the page is empty.

    And I can't find, for the life of me, where you actually post this type of message from. How and from where does a user post a Visitor Message?

    I guess this visitor message is what happens when you view another user's User Profile, and there's a box right there that says "write something"? Can this feature be disabled?

      There is an entire section for visitor message permissions by usergroup in the admincp > usergroups > usergroup manager

        You can quickly turn it off in Admin > Options

          It does not seem to work correctly. For example, In my "Registered Users" Group I tried configuring it like this:

          Click image for larger version

Name:	visitormessages.jpg
Views:	10
Size:	84.1 KB
ID:	4398006

          I thought "let the user be able to post a visitor message to their own profile, but not other people's." Except it doesn't work. Configuring it like this also removes the message box on the user's own profile.
