Would it be possible to make the invitation email text customizable? Depending on how the permissions are set up on the forum, the text as it is now may not reflect reality or make sense. I also would like to have this be a plain text email that shows the URL in cleartext and so can’t be mistaken for a phishing email.
Here’s what it looks like now on my forum - but when you click on “Visit Kabissa” it does not take the user to the post but to the forum homepage… and they do have to log in before they can post a reply.
Also, I am currently grappling with the invitation emails which are sent out by my discourse and think that it would help to make the emails more palatable/interesting to the invitee if the inviter could write a few lines of text explaining why they are inviting them. The other part of the answer might be to let admins customize their email so that it includes more info about the site and makes sense in their context.
As it is, I now send out two emails when inviting someone to join a topic - one in gmail to warn the person that the invitation is coming and to give context, and another via the invite system.
I do see how this might open up our site to potential spamming.
