Making links live in HTML emails generated by Welcome Pack

    I’ve read back but can’t see where this is solved for 1.5 and Welcome Pack – when it sends out the emails none of the links are live, so people have to cut and paste the links through which is a bit of a pain.

    Also is there any obvious way to generate a better looking email format? Currently mine come through in a default html version and it looks a bit basic.

    Many thanks!

  • Yeah, I’m having this problem too & it’s causing a bit of chaos with the “less-tech-savy” users who cannot copy & paste (even though instructions are provided) and get frustrated…eg my dad!

    Some email clients convert to links, some do not..hotmail/live seem to be one of the ones that don’t!

    Any solution greatly appreciated. I have tried this without luck;

    %s

    oops – that forgot to use the backticks for the hyperlink code!

    Any progress on this. I have the same issue and agree that less savy users are being lost

    It’s not going to be addressed for some time. It will require a lot of effort to re-work this particular issue.

    Aw, that’s a shame :(

    Perhaps if it is a time/cost issue a number of members could chip in to cover the dev?

    So if the point of the plugin is to allow us to change the emails that are sent out to users, and the first and most important email doesn’t work correctly because the links aren’t live, then any other emails (all of my emails contain links) that contain links won’t work. This seems like a major issue unless you are content with simple text emails. I am ready to donate to help fix this issue, otherwise, I will look for another solution to sending emails with live links.

    Regrettably, I don’t have enough time right now. Simple as that. If any experienced developers want to work with me on Welcome Pack, that would be good.

    Why even bother to create an email template system that doesn’t incorporate hyperlinks?

    It does. You can add links and they work. You are talking about changing the way BuddyPress handles emails, which is slightly different.
