How do we send a private message to another forum member

How do we send a private message to another forum member?
How do we open a new message box to send a private question/message to another member of the forum without it being viewed by everyone else?

Just trying to have a short one-on-one conversation.

Click on the username and it brings up a popup that includes a large block that says “Message”
I sent you one…

Click the user’s profile, then “message”


Once the message appears, you can change the title and add the user(s) to it. The topic that you are on will link in the message, but you can delete this before sending.

You can have group chats too. This is good forum software. (Discourse)
