[Resolved] HTML entities in activity notification email

  • presis_carsten


    I’m using BuddyPress with a Dutch translation file. In de activity notification email an HTML entity is shown instead of ë.

    Om deze notificaties te beëindigen log in en ga naar:

    Translation: To disable these notifications please log in and go to.

    Is this a problem from the translation file or should BuddyPress decode the HTML entities?

    Hi @presis_carsten,

    could effectively be a translation issue. Why ?
    For translation, we (i translate BP into french) mostly use HTML entities for special characters.
    In brief, accented letters in HTML. For instance, if you want to type één you would type één.

    The only part this should never be used is in the messages, as gettext doesn’t handle mail content.

    And so far i see, the dutch phrase contains such an accented letter (beëindigen)

    buddypress-nl_NL is here. And you’re free to modify it on Glotpress and of course in your copy, with poEdit or similar.

    I checked WP & BP’s nl_NL version on Glotpress and didn’t find the phrase you mention. Could it be you use a very old translation or some notification plugin ?



    I was using an old translation. I’m sorry to waste your time.



    Don’t, you’re welcome ! Can you says if you got it to work ? What you did ?
