Modern Private Messaging

  • MrShawnTierney


    I’d like to suggest modernizing “private messaging” so it’s more suitable for 2019 than 2009.

    This would include allowing messages to be edited, even if for only a few minutes. The simple fact is, many of us are not perfect and make typos.

    Back in 2009 people would say “it’s not possible” but they’ve been proven wrong over the last ten years as various websites and software vendors have come up with ways to support editing PMs, even if only for a short while 🙂

    But if the smart people behind BuddyPress don’t like the idea, maybe they could add a simple “preview” message feature?

    Also, it would be nice if private messaging could support paragraphs, like normal html has all these years.

    I find it frustrating to have to physically put in a period to space out my paragraphs so they all don’t squish together after posting.

    So what do you think? Should the smart people behind BuddyPress modernize the PM system?

    I see you’ve been waiting 1 year and 8 months for a response, hopefully it will be your turn soon… how did you go about resolving this issue?


    BP Nouveau introduced a new interface for dealing with private conversations. It now uses an instance of the classic editor, so I believe it’s using paragraphs.

    I like the idea of having a period of time to edit the message content, thanks for suggesting it. We’ll see how to implement this for private conversations and activities (public conversations).
