No way to clear out private message inbox

Post by paul »

Just wondering if anyone else on this chat page has the same issue I'm seeing. I've been trying to remove older private messages so I can release new messages on hold. But when I try to delete the private message I get an error saying that the form was invalid. Has anyone had this issue? It's pretty annoying since I can't read new private messages until the old ones are cleared out.

If I try to do multiple at once (from my inbox), I get the same message. But if I open a message up and hit the "X" in the top right corner, it does delete the message without an issue.

Yeah, one at a time is the only way I've been able to delete messages for quite some time.

I've run into the same problem again, except I can't delete messages one at a time. If someone wants to contact me, I'll put up my email in cryptic form.

Jay,

If you try the method Jason described it should work. I just tried it again and it worked.

This worked for me as well this morning.

I tried the "X" method too and that works. I swear I used to be able to delete one at a time from the main menu (or "store" one), but at least I can delete. I read through of the old messages before deleting them, and they're still interesting.

Thanks,

Jay
