Is there a way to disable the hiding of email addresses?
This is the problem I'm seeing with this feature....
1) I posted a message to my forum via email. In my email signature line I have my email address.
2) When it's distributed to the subscribers, it comes across in the email as a [hidden_email]
3) If I click on that "[hidden email] link when I'm viewing the post online, it takes me to an area where it looks like I can send a private message to the person. But then when I go to send it, I get this error:
4) ) If I click on that link in the email that came via subscription, I get this error:
It would be best for me if I could just disable the hiding of email addresses. Is that possible?
I think I've isolated what the problem is. It happens in a post sent via email. If the email address is not an active link (i.e a Mailto:xxxx) and just the email address typed in, that is when it doesn't work - it stops at the @ sign. Check the several posts I made in the same thread you posted to.
Ok, I'm not going to worry about it. Since I've now realized that it is only with email postings AND that the email address isn't a clickable link when it's sent, since most email programs turn an email address into a clickable link anyway, that makes it pretty slim for it to happen.
