    Guys and gals,

    I'd like to edit the PM emails that go out automatically when a PM is sent to someone. I primarily want to remove the way that it posts the full message onto the email. This way, folks are more apt to click on the link to your site that is already provided in the email to view the information/PM sent to them.

    How do I go about doing that?

    Search in languages and phrases I think it is either notify or ***** one of those pulls all of them up for subscriptions too :)

    Arny perhaps either Chris or Nick can tell you how they do it here?
    There is no message in their pm email, just a link.

    Edit the pmreceived phrase.

    Code:
    DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL!
    ***************************
    
    Dear $touserinfo[username],

    To read the original version, respond to, or delete this message, you must log in here:
    $vboptions[bburl]/private.php
    
    This is the message that was sent:

    Just edit that bit out to something like this;

    Code:
    DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL!

    Easiest way to find the Email Notifications is to go to:

    Languages & Phrases -> Phrase Manager. Than change the Phrase Type at the top to Email Body Text.

    The notification for new posts is notify.
    The notification for a received PM is pmreceived.
