We’re trying to better integrate private messaging on our site (8tracks), and we want to add a “private message” button to 8tracks user profile pages, which would then link to their forum profile page, with the message window already open.
Is there something we can add to the URL to make the profile page appear in this state?
… it’s not built in as far as I am aware.
With 3 parts…
##Part 1 - passing the parameter
A combination of ensuring the links link to a users profile page that doesn’t redirect i.e.
If you include a parameter on the URL i.e.
##Part 2 - opening the private message dialog
Some of the code I have written in this topic will open the composer and start a private message
##Part 3 - read the ?pm=1 parameter
then execute the opening of the private message dialog as per part 2.
