In the email notification I received of this forum post, the word "here" -- hyperlinked in the post -- did not appear. Please see screenshot.

The Group Email Subscription (GES) plugin is also responsible for sending forum emails, correct?

Correct, Dom.

FYI (and related to your question in #1997), GES does indeed strip tags. The function cac_strip_email_anchors() in bp-custom.php (around line 37) is intended to preempt this stripping, transforming links into plaintext like this:

   <a href="">Bar</a>


   Bar []

However, it looks like the filter that this function attempts to hook, bp_gfs_email_content, does not exist anywhere in the codebase :) It must have been removed at some point, maybe when we switched from our old email notification plugin to the new one. So it means that this function is doing nothing. That is to say, it's not causing the problem, but getting the function to work again would be a way of skirting whatever is causing the root problem of this ticket.

It looks like, in order to get it working again, I'm going to have to change the way the GES plugin works a little bit. So don't worry about this ticket for the time being - I'll have to futz with it :)

  • Status changed from Assigned to Resolved

I've reimplemented the link translator in This should fix the problem. If you note the problem arising after the 1.4.6 release, please reopen this ticket with steps to reproduce.
