Generic URL for private messages?

I’d like to use the iconified header links theme to link to private messages in the navbar via an envelope icon.

However, since the private messages URL is custom to a user path, e.g. /u/:username/messages, I can’t seem to accomplish this without a plugin. There is the quick messages plugin but that’s overkill for what I’m trying to accomplish.

How can I redirect /messages to /u/:username/messages ?

Hi andrewj welcome to the forum

Looking for this?


Yes that’s exactly what I’m looking for, thanks @Mittineague !

I searched far and wide but couldn’t find it previously. Thanks very much!
