Can non-members send messages to members

  • 3bsstudio


    Wordpress 5.7.2 BuddyPress 7.3.0 Theme: Gwangi

    My site has a search form. When input search fields are matched with a profile, the profile appears on the members results page as it should. Great. However, I want the ability for the person searching to click on the member profile and send them a message (notification) by email.

    When I currently follow the above, when I click on the profile of the member there is no-where on the profile page a facility to send them a message. Am I missing something obvious here?

    BuddyPress doc says: BuddyPress provides ways for you to send a message publicly to another member of the site or network. It also mentions: Private Message button in the member’s header – but I can’t see that.

    It must work that a non-registered person can send a registered person a message. Is this possible?

    Site is:

    To test: If you put Brian in the Current Name search field on the above page and click Submit you’ll get Brian’s Profile appear on the members page.

    A user must be logged-in before they can send a BP message.
    You could write some custom code to send an email to “Brian”.



    I got it sorted by using the BuddyPress User Contact Form plugin which lets non-members email members.

    Thanks for your input.
