Purple moosage trouble

When I click on the link in someone's profile to send a moosage, the name does not populate and the boxes to enter a name are not there either. I am using Ghostery for browsing on an Android phone.

Thanks!

That is odd.  

Does it work okay with other browsers?

I had never heard of "ghostery" so I looked it up ....  I wonder if it is doing something to intentionally make it not work?

I have the same issue with Chrome.

I have Permies white-listed so Ghostery should not be blocking anything.

Thanks for looking into it.

To solve this, we need to duplicate the problem to try to figure out what is causing it.

I am using chrome .... and I just tried to send you a pm.   The fields were properly filled out.

Anybody else reading this care to give it a try?  What do you see?

So I stole my husband's phone and I have the same issue. He uses Chrome for android. Could it be something with my account?

One quick note ...

I tried to do this with my phone.   I saw that I did not get an opportunity to change the name.

And then I switched it to desktop view and saw the name fields.  

I am curious why the name fields are even there.  

Are you looking at the desktop view through a mobile device?

My phone. I didn't think to try desktop mode. I will give that a go and report back.

If I use the desktop view, the name shows. But when I changed back to mobile the name disappeared.

I put in a request to change the code so that the name fields are removed.  After all, the name has already been specified.

Error.
Could not determine the user id. Please check if you typed the display name correctly and try again.


On my android phone I get this message when I'm trying to purple moosage someone.

It has happened with two different users.

I'm not sure if I've everything moosaged someone before on my phone.

I'll head over to my computer and check if I can send it from there I think it's just a phone issue

Verified.  It did the same thing to me.  

Devaka made some PM changes recently, I'll see if he has any thoughts about this.

I can reproduce the issue. Looks like a bug!
