Can I add a “Send Private Message” button to the list of Members within a Group?

  • Profile photo of drwebstein


    In the list of all of the Members of a single Group, I’m trying to add a “Send Private Message” button, like the one that appears on a the Member Profile page.

    Is this possible? Can anybody recommend how I would do so?

    I’d also like to add the most recent status update for each member within the same list. Is that possible?

    Thank you.

    To prevent spam, the fonctionnality you want to use is not avaible. You can see tthe function in bp-messages-templatetags.php:522

    Anyway you can add a button, which opens the send message page, but you need to add manually the user name.

    Open from your_child_theme/groups/single/members.php
    and add the function ` ` in the place you want.

    You can also learn to your user to use the profile page of their contact to send them a private massage.
    The number of click to do this is the same i think.

    It’s your choice ;)

    Thank you for your response, Chouf1. Creating a button to link to the page from where they can send a private message is exactly what I was trying to do.

    Do you have any idea whether there’s a way to implement this so that they don’t have to manually enter the user name once they arrive at that screen?

    It seems like it might be doable with a second version of the bp_send_message_button() function that has been revised to accept the username as a parameter. I can tinker with the idea, but I thought I’d put it out there in case somebody knows whether or not there are any reason why this idea wouldn’t work.

    Thank you.

    drwebsitein, did you ever find a solution to this? im looking to implement a similar feature, and need to pass in the username.
