#9073 new defect (bug)

Misleading information in unsubscribe link

Reported by: squarestar's profile squarestar Owned by:
Milestone: Up Next Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Messages Keywords: needs-patch


With the Private Messaging component enabled but Notifications and/or Account Settings components disabled, the unsubscribe link in the emails sent when a member receives a private message states that the user can change their email preferences. However they will not be able to change them.

If Account Settings is not enabled, there will be no settings tab to manage email preferences. If Account Settings is enabled but Notifications is not, the Email tab will be there as well as the line "Set your email notification preferences", but there will be no options to save.

Related: In the admin, the Notifications component states that it will allow users to "customise their notification settings", but this is not true if the Account Settings component is not enabled as well.

Hi @squarestar

Thanks a lot for your feedback. You're right, we need to improve this. A bit like we are moving avatar/cover images management into the Members component screens when the xProfile is not active, as BP Emails are sent even if Notifications/Account components are not active, members should still be able to manage their Emails preferences.
