Would that be possible?
In V.1 I saw not the thread but at least all messages sent to me when replying. And when answering more than one message in 1 reply that worked so well!
Many times messages have follow-ups and updates before I get to read and reply, so having the whole thread below the reply-window so I can just scroll down instead of opening a new tab in my browser and switch back and forth would be really great!

It would indeed. I just noticed how much I miss that feature. Strange why this should have been disabled.
I haven't found any setting to enable this yet. Maybe Sockreatese knows something about it?

Otherwise I will post at SMF support how to get the behaviour of v1 back.

As I recall this started when we implemented the threading of private messages.

Was that a modification or a setting someplace?

I looked around the admin panel, but couldn't find where it was set that way.

I'd try undoing whatever that was and see if it is related to this.

it is a  setting that each user can switch on in his pm preferences.

I've tried all 3 settings, the replies seem to always only show the last of a chain.
are you sure we had this working here properly?

edit: just checked at ff1,com it works the same as here. I always only see the very last answer below my input textfield. nothing older.
maybe I am understanding wrong, what the actual problem is here?

until we find out more I suggest to open another tab to reply to a message and leav the pm-list open.

I could well be remembering wrong here.

My life almost imploded in the last few weeks and I can't say that my focus is what it should be at this point.

If it is working the same as at V1, then I am remembering things wrong.

Sorry.

Given all that, I agree.  The best solution is multiple tabs.

 :embarrass: I have just checked on V1  :embarrass: I could've sworn... Sent so many messages there and I really thought I remembered that I could also see the previous messages, like when  replying in a thread on the forum, no second window needed to display things.
Sorry again, my bad!  :fp: Will more thoroughly check next time before making a request, promise!

Still, should this option be possible in the future...

no problem, I fell for it, too. - funny how fast one gets used to these little improvements, leaving one wondering how it could ever have been different.
