ASCII characters in email notifications

    @redkite

    I’m using the fancy editor (via the bbPress Enable TinyMCE Visual Tab plugin) and in notification emails we get characters like:

    <p>Hello, this is a reply to the test.</p>

    Is there a way to either send HTML-formatted emails from bbPress, or to strip out these characters and still use the fancy editor?

    Ack – that’s not right. Here’s what it looks like in the email:

    <p>Hello, this is a reply to the test.</p>

    I’m using the latest versions of both WordPress and bbPress.

    Okay – still not working. Instead of the p tag, which should not be there anyway, I see <p@gt; in the email.

    I’ll post an image too:

    Hmm, I’m not sure what’s going on. The upcoming 2.3.2 release will have a fix for the editor issues, but I can’t say if that will the email notification problems or not.

    Okay, we’ll see what happens then and probably remove the editor plugin for now.

    Some issue here @redkite. Any resolutions on your end?

    There are (at least) a couple of tickets on this in the bbPress trac, no. 2722 and no. 2865.

    No. 2865 has a patch marked “under consideration”. In case it helps anybody, I’ve wrapped this patch as a plugin for bbPress 2.5.8:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/fix-forum-emails/

    This should help to fix problems with HTML entities in notification emails on vanilla bbPress installs. It’s intended as a workaround until the issue gets fixed in bbPress core.

    The plugin won’t remove stray HTML / CSS in forum posts. Rogue markup like this can be caused by cut-and-paste operations in TinyMCE, aka the Visual Editor, if you have it enabled in bbPress. If you’re having these problems, we have another free plugin called “Forum Beginner Posts” in the repository. It enables TinyMCE for bbPress in paste-as-text mode by default.
