Thank you Christian - that does the job fine the from/to codes are now correct and I am able to adapt the message system to a membership site with just that one line change.

Hi [/types]“],

You have a message from [/types]“] [/types]“].

The code in the email message is:

<p>Hi [wpv-user field="user_firstname" id="[types field='message-to' output='raw'][/types]"],</p>
<p>You have a message from [wpv-user field="user_firstname" id="[types field='message-from' output='raw'][/types]"] [wpv-user field="user_lastname" id="[types field='message-from' output='raw'][/types]"].</p>
<p>Message: [wpv-post-excerpt length="80" more="..."]</p>
<p>This is an automated email, please do not reply to it.</p>
<p>You can reply <a href="[wpv-post-url]">directly here</a>.</p>

I don't recall changing this yet so I wondered if there may be a problem with the syntax.

I recall that sometimes " and ' characters can cause problems.

Many thanks


Okay thank you for the report, this looks like a separate bug. I will escalate this and get back to you when I have some further information.


Thanks Christian

I thought it might be a bug.

Kind regards
