    You can try this but it’s pretty old –



    how to make author in bbpress clickable to send message?



    BBPress is a WordPress plugin that allows you to add a forum or discussion board to your WordPress website. While it doesn’t come with a built-in private messaging feature, there are a few ways you can add this functionality to your forum:

    Use a plugin: There are several plugins available that allow you to add private messaging to BBPress. One popular option is the “Private Messages For BBPress” plugin, which adds a private messaging system to your forum. You can also check out other plugins that are available in the WordPress repository.

    Use a third-party service: Another option is to integrate a third-party service that offers private messaging. For example, you could use a service like BuddyPress, which offers a range of social networking features, including private messaging. You can integrate BuddyPress with BBPress to add private messaging to your forum.

    Custom development: If you have the technical skills or can hire a developer, you could also develop a custom solution to add private messaging to your forum. This would involve creating a plugin or customizing the BBPress code to add the functionality you need.

    Whichever method you choose, it’s important to consider the security and privacy implications of adding private messaging to your forum. Make sure to implement appropriate security measures to protect user data and prevent spam or abuse.
