compose message, send to username
I installed buddypress 1.1.3 and wp 2.8.6 yesterday and was doing some testing when I noticed something what I think is a bit weird, but maybe there is a good reason for it why it works the way it does.
When I login in as a normal user and start typing the name of the user where I would like to send a message to, it doesn’t always autofill the name in the send to field. This only seems to work when the other user is on my friend list.
The only way to send users a message that are not on my friend list would be by going to their profile page and then click on send a message. But just simply typing his name in the send to field doesn’t work unless they are on my friend list. If you do fill in the name of the user where you want to send a message to and click submit it shows an error. “There was an error sending that message, please try again”
Why is that? It doesn’t make sense to me why I shouldn’t be able to simply fill in the users name and send them a message, I don’t think it should be relevant whether they are on my friend list or not. Also the error messages doesn’t really tell me what went wrong either, its not like the user doesn’t exist.
