#6934 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Emails: Make plain-text email content more accessible

If we allow HTML user content in emails, we should preferably do some type of HTML to plain-text conversion (perhaps to Markdown?) for accessibility reasons.

This depends on #6933 being completed first.

For clarity, this would be specific to fields such as the usermessage example (and the like) in #6933. Drupal has some good library that does this, which we could re-use when we find it again.

However, I think this would be a couple days' work for a relatively small impact. Actually, maybe it might be more now we have TinyMCE hooked up to various profile fields (maybe if those values are ever emailed out). It would unarguably be a good utility for plugin developers to have.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
