#6466 closed enhancement (fixed)

Changing error message which appears when someone attempts to send a message with no subject line

Reported by: minglonaire's profile minglonaire Owned by: r-a-y's profile r-a-y
Milestone: 2.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.1
Component: Messages Keywords: needs-patch


Right now if subject line in private message is empty there is an error message appearing and message is not sent. The problem is that end user has no idea why this error is appearing, a much better way would be to have something like:

Please fill out subject line.

Very easy fix and would be helpful for everyone.
