The problem is with the notification email to the administrator. (I haven't checked with the actual subscribed users yet.)

Just tested with a ordinary user, it displays as it should. So it's likely only admin notification emails.

[topic_body] is empty and nothing is displayed.

You can use [post_body] but it will display the full contents of the post in the email notification.

@verek The notifications are wrong. I get wrong (and funny) notifications from this forum also and i'm not an admin by any means.

Also those issues are NOT site specific as we have been told. They may have to do with settings but this is a BUG of wpForo2.

There is no any issue with the emails sent by this forum. The user had inserted email shortcodeΒ  in the title, and it was replaced correctly. Now, I removed the shortcode from the topic title, and it should work fine.

Ok, i was under the impression that users can't use anywhere shortcodes. Only admins could.
