Why not just send an email then?

Because I plan that a user can send a private message to the group, and in the notification that they receive via email, you should also see the contents of the message and not just the subject of the message.

So, to explain what I need ... when user receive the notification that they receive email, they should also see the contents of the message and not just the subject of the message.

I found this forum instruction but it does not work for my version 3.1.10...

viewtopic.php?f=71&t=2114725

Please help me with instructions on how to modify the code to get something like that.

Thanks

There was a request or two for that in 3.0 and, I think, one now unsupported mod, but I don’t think it was ever taken up by anyone beyond 3.0. You never know though, someone might have a go.

I think you are better off not including the full text of the PM in the email notification. I have another forum on xenForo and had that enabled. People were constantly replying to the email notification instead of going to the forum and replying to the PM. Turned off the full text and it stopped. :)

I believe that it was so in your case, but I need this function because of the realization of the service I intend to provide to my users.

Can you give me instructions on what to do to make it work as I want.

Thanks

You’ll have to wait and see if anyone wants to make an extension.
