    I'm going to try to work on making it easier to use, but for now you click on someone's name in a thread (left of their post), and select Public Profile. The option to send a page is there. They can't quickly reply, so right now it's basically a neat way to grab someone's attention quickly (perhaps to start a PM conversation). It pops up immediately on their screen; without a refresh.

    Until I can figure out how to customize it, yes. Robertmto was telling me that some boards have it altered so you can quickly reply. If I can get my hands on the "how-to" txt file for that, I'll do it.

    Here's the update I edited into the title:

    The pager is now easy to use. Just click on a username in a thread like this one, and in the drop-down menu there's now a direct link to send that user a Pager Message.

    What's left to do is to establish a way to quickly reply to it. It's supposed to be possible, but I have yet to discover how.

    I tried to reply, but it wouldn't let me. Every letter I typed deleted itself. Maybe it's just my wonky computer.

    naw I am sure it is incompatible with certain versions of Firefox and Mozilla, I had/have the same on 5 different machines, btw, this includes the 64bit version of IE.

    I hope it's just your wonky computer. I've had two others send me messages, one of which was a reply from my message. I also tested it between Hicks and RoboHicks, and it worked there too.
