wpForo can send email notifications, if a user was meant inside a post. There are four shortcode / variables avaiable:
- [mentioned-user-name] - Mentioned user display name
- [author-user-name] - Post author display name
- [topic-title] - Topic title
- [post-url] - Link to the post
But there are no option to include a note about the mentioned text. For the New reply notification there is [reply_desc] available. And for New topic notification [topic_desc] is possible.
Imho, it would be senseful to have something like that for User Mentioning Email too. I miss this in every mail, I receive from the community at wpforo.com - and of my own wpForo installation.
Thank you for the suggestion. We will add such a possibility in the next versions update.
Another nice think, would be using shortcodes inside all mail bodies.
(I have the same mail header and footer for all mails with some links. So I would like to put all of that into a shortcode, I can develop myself.)
