I would like to create a Message and click the box that says “send to all users”.
The message would include a clickable link.
And when these users get the notification email saying they have received a message,
I’d like them to open the email and be able to click through on the clickable link
which will take them over to a bbPress forum post.
How can I do this?
If I just send a Message with a link, it does not currently show up as a hyperlink
so users cannot click on it.
If you are going to implement the visual editor for messages, you will need to overload the members/single/messages/compose.php file. You might like to use BP Template Overloader to help you manage your overloads
I’ve raised the links problem on BuddyPress Trac, I’ve been able to add rich text editing to the compose and reply boxes for messages, it’s quite involved doing it but if you’d like that feature I can help you implement it.
