The "Report" button
#1
If you have a problem in a thread and you hit the “Report” button what does it do and what actually happens?

I have used it once and nothing happens at my end showing no apparent difference. So how does it know what you are reporting and why you are reporting?

I expected a box to come up asking what the problem is but nothing!

The Report button sends a message (notification) to all staff members that appears at the top of their screen, much like you might see a PM notification.

You must be doing it wrong.

If you have a JavaScript enabled browser then you should see this.

I now realise that the problem was at my end with my pop-up blocker stopping the box popping up! All sorted now Whistle
