html entities in notification email
bbPress forums play an important part in an outdoor recreation club site I administer. Members make heavy use of notification emails to be informed of changes in scheduled events.
Html entities in notification emails annoy the members. The members are non-technical. They don’t understand why characters such as & ‘ and – are replaced with strange codes in email.
The fix is trivial, apply html_entity_decode() to the subject and message body before sending. I don’t see any security risk in this. (Someone please let me know if there is a risk; I’m using this fix on the site.)
Can this be added to bbPress?
