I have recently started having problems with being able to populate the ‘to’ field from a link. The link is displaying correctly with the appropriate user name, but the to field remains empty. This is the case in Safari, Chrome and Firefox.
The link is fep_query_url(‘newmessage’, array(‘fep_to’ => get_the_author_meta( ‘user_nicename’) ))
I added the & to the url manually just now test it. The point is, populating the ‘to’ field works when i replace “/?fepaction=newmessage#038;fep_to=hechanell” (generated with the link above) with “/?fepaction=newmessage&fep_to=hechanell”.
The message number seems to only have appeared in the link after I updated the plugin today. When I remove it manually and type ‘&’, it works.
for security reason url is passed through esc_url but this should not break the link. Are you adding full <a href="<?php echo fep_query_url('newmessage', array('fep_to' => get_the_author_meta( 'user_nicename') ) ); ?>">Send Message</a> or something else? Please give me code what you are adding.
