not sure if this is intended or a bug:

a user replied to one of my post with the posting of an image:

At the e-mail notification which I did receive, the link to the image was included within the e-mail. Not sure if the link to an image should be included within the mail-notification ?

the following is the e-mail text:

  • Milestone changed from 1.2 to 1.3

Emails are sent as plain text, so this will be the case. Bumping this as we should consider this for 1.3.

  • Component set to Core
  • Milestone changed from 1.3 to Future Release
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

If we start stripping tags from email notifications, we are bound to run into all sorts of problems where we actually affect and distort the content of the message. IMO, more sophisticated filters (that is, more sophisticated than strip_tags() ) are probably the domain of plugins.

#3 @boonebgorges

  • Milestone Future Release deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Severity set to normal
  • Status changed from new to closed

BP doesn't natively offer any support in the interface for adding HTML content, so I think it's outside our purview to remove/sanitize that content in emails. Marking wontfix.
