XF 1.3 Warning members from personal messages?


Well-known member
I noticed that I can report members from personal messages but as an admin I cannot warn to user from the same message. Is this accurate or am I missing something? If a user is sending absurd messages to the mod, he should be able to warn/ban him right? What would be the point of reporting the message to myself? Thanks.

But that warning would not be linked to the personal message like when you warn from a post right? :)
But yeah, I guess it's an option. Thanks!

Well you would only be able to issue a warning for conversations you are a member of.

So in most cases, the warn link would be superfluous.

Right. I was just surprised to see that there was no warn link in personal messages. I guess I need to put on messaging restrictions on new members. Thanks!
