Is there some sort of voodoo required to use the Referral system and Private Message Manager?

I've never managed to get the referrals to display despite their being enabled in the ACP and having been used in tests.

And the Private Message Manager simply states "No private messages found" for all users.

Using 3.0.3 RC1 with revisions 5329-5362 applied yet cannot utilize them, any ideas?

No sure about the referral system, I've never used it before and probably never will.

The Private Message Manager works as expected. Install 3.0.3RC1, post a PM as userX, go to ACP -> edit userX -> view PM's.

Ok I'll look into it further, the last test I tried the referral system returned an error which said it was "successfully
sent" though I never received it and have no idea why it would appear in the forum error log, and the error itself scrolled
off the page:

My standard ISP e-mail has been stormed by spam so it could be buried in there somewhere (I probably need to go all Gmail).

As for the PM Manager I checked your messages to me at the guild and it worked great, went back to the other install and
looked again, I found some of the messages but things still don't look right so I'll continue looking. As usual I'm sure
its my fault Confused

Don't know why that last message scrolled the screen like that but I added some Carraige returns and fit it in the block!

As for the PM Manager, it displays the users by "login" which works fine, except for those users who use an "alias", and for those the admin must manually input the alias name.

Once I punched in the Alias for the user in question up they came, sweet as clover Very Happy

Tried the referral system again by creating 5 e-mail addys, and sending referrals to different forum threads to those emails, then registering them as users after following the links back.

That portion works ok except for the error/notification [Post-Data] scrolling way off the page! Yet no referrals listed in users control panel, so it kind of works though imperfectly.

I can't try it here because referrals don't seem to be enabled. Has anyone been able to use these?
