Generic URL for private messages?


(AJ S.) #1

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 ?
