Sending a Private Message - It is called a Conversation in XenForo software.

See the various parts. Look at the two boxes between the buttons.
If you check Do not use the Lock Conversation. You will NOT get any replies if you do that.

When you are done, click on the "Start Conversation"

How to "delete" a conversation (PM). You will not be able to delete in an old fashioned manner.

1. Go to the Conversation (PM) that you want to delete, and click on it and open it.

3. Then you click on Leave

That is what you will see. You can understand the two options. Choose one.
The top one will allow you to receive any replies that come.
The bottom will take you out of the conversation with NO ability for a reply.

The Leave makes it stop from your PM / Conversation. The only time the PM/Conversation is totally gone is when all parties of the conversation Leave.

Adding images to a signature

Here is how you can images to your Signature. Please do not make them too large as we need to remember some of this will be shown on an iPhone or Android phone.

Have those two images in the Media, your own album.

Then open your User Control Panel and look for Signature and click on that.

When it opens, look for the photo icon

When you click on that icon you'll want to have the image address from media. Right click on image and save image address.
Then put that saved image address here.

Click insert . Then you can space over or put in some words, and do it again for the 2nd photo. They will show side by side.

Please give it a try.

@Freedom I believe there is something wrong with "Conversations"
When I go looking at them they only have half of the back and forth, like what I replied or asked, the other half is missing and I thought I had a draft saved but can't find it either.
