Go to your User Control Panel and click on Manage Drafts. This will bring up a list of the draft posts you have saved. Click the appropriate post and edit as needed. You should have the usual Submit button available.

To this day, I still don't understand how to send a PM that is sitting in Outbox. While I'm following the directions outlined above, there is no "Send" or "Submit" button. Thank you.

If it's sitting in your outbox, that means you DID send it, but, for whatever reason, your recipient never opened it. Copy, paste, and resend.

Once you are in the Manage Draft, and you see the draft messages in the list, each one has two links below, LOAD DRAFT and VIEW/EDIT:

If you enter by VIEW/EDIT, you can modify our clean your draft, but not send it:

And if you enter by LOAD DRAFT, you can edit your draft, SAVE, PREVIEW or directly SUBMIT it:

It is a bit tricky...

At the risk of sounding like a total imbecile , I am still struggling with the messaging system. What does it mean when you write someone a PM, hit "Submit", and 24 hours later the PM doesn't appear in your "Outbox" or "Sent messages"? IMO, that means the PM didn't go through, right?

I always get the following after trying to post, or send a PM:

This page isn’t workingforum.talkingmachine.info is currently unable to handle this request.
HTTP ERROR 500

Thank you.
