Messaging - proper user lookup was created by ds-sric-support
My users won't know each others usernames, how can this be made more user-friendly, i.e. search-driven based on name? Or a way I can send someone to this page with a username prefilled, from a separate page that listed users?

The Kunena editor will display pasted images, but Kunena itself not so great at rendering the data. Please attach actual files in the future.

The private message system works off usernames or user ids for recipients. It can't send based off anything else as it needs something unique. Eventually there will be a searchable autocomplete to assist with this, but easiest way to directly message a user is to go to their profile and use the send message menu item at the top of their profile.
