4 years, 12 months ago
this plugin is working for us as great champ. Thank you for such a nice plugin.
We are building a front -end user plugin. where in one page it shows all the registered usernames.
Now my question is – from that page if i want to send PM to a particular user by clicking on their username, then how can i do it ?
any help much appreciate 🙂

Also I’m interested in that. I use it from backend, but I have users profile pages and I’d like to add a “send a message” button, so when user is brought to backend the name is already in the input field.
Me too. Digging through the code, it does look like the Send form accepts both $_POST and $_GET for the Recipient, but haven’t gotten it to work via URL yet, like:
Edit! Actually, this does work!! But only if you choose the dropdown listing method, and not the auto suggest one. Link to it like this:
Obviously replace your-page with the Page you made with the Private Messages template. 🙂

I’m sorry but, does this work for you ? It doesn’t work on my side: It goes to send form but username is not filled.
Yes, it worked for me after I changed the setting to display the recipients as Dropdown, not auto suggest.

And how exactly do you pass a variable?
I cannot get it working.
recipient=Username- what do you pass here instead of username? Thanks
The username of the person you’re trying to send a PM to! I have it linked from author profile pages, I just pass their login name in the URL, ie,
Just whatever their login name is. 🙂
I’m sorry but, does this work for you ?
I download the plugin, and have 2 erros:
1) When select more than one user to send messages, on the outbox only show message sended to one user.
2) The plugin doesn’t send emails on new message.
I use this fix http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-private-messages-for-wordpress-doesnt-send-emails-on-new-message-fixed?replies=1 but don’t work.
Anyone have idea to correct this ?
