    Is there a way to make this so when a user replies to a group message, can choose to reply to whole group or reply to person who sent group message only?

    If too complicated, how about no choice, any reply will go to person who sent group message only.

    You can use shortcode https://www.shamimsplugins.com/docs/front-end-pm/shortcode/fep_shortcode_message_to/ to show a button above reply form. When someone will click that button will redirect to message page with “To” field pre-populated with sender name.

    thanks for quick response!
    I see this would work on the site itself, but if they reply to the email notification they get, it will still go to everyone in the group right? any way to make that not happen?

    If you want to send email notification to sender only that can be easily done.
    But if you want to send reply to sender only that needs to be custom coded.

    Hi Shamim

    I am interested in this functionality as a number of my users do not appreciate being copied in on some of the banter that happens currently. Having a [Reply] & [Reply All] button would really help resolve this issue. In some circumstances you can reply direct and not have your comments shared with the community.

    I see this as enhancement request as its standard functionality in an email system.

    Happy to discuss further

    Kind regards

    We are talking about Group Message feature. If we create a group in eg. WhatsApp and send a message, is there any reply to sender only button?

    Happy to discuss further. To discuss further please create a new topic.

    Hi Shamim

    Thank you for the reply, you have mentioned that i should start a new topic which i am happy to do although if i am not mistaken i believe i am talking about the same issue as the original author of this topic. “can choose to reply to whole group or reply to person who sent group message only?”

    I suggested that maybe you could have two buttons as in an email client does [Reply] & [Reply All]. I understand the message is being sent to the group but as a recipient you may not want you’re reply to everyone as the subject may be sensitive.

    Can you please consider this as a product enhancement for your backlog.

    Kind regards

    Where, exactly do I copy that code to allow a reply to go only to sender? I agree that we need buttons for Reply and Reply All. Thx

    My question is where to copy the short code you provided??? This is in reference to the two posts as follows

    From 25035 above
    Is there a way to make this so when a user replies to a group message, can choose to reply to whole group or reply to person who sent group message only?

    and from 25050 above

    My users are very unhappy with so many replies to a group message. Where do I copy this code to provide a button above the reply form?? Thank you

    It depends on where you want to show that button.
    Add following code in your theme’s (child theme’s if you are using) functions.php

    add_action( 'fep_display_after_parent_message', function(){
    	if ( fep_is_group_message( fep_get_the_id() ) ) {
    		echo '<a href="' . fep_query_url( 'newmessage', array( 'fep_to' => fep_get_userdata( fep_get_message_field( 'mgs_author' ), 'user_nicename', 'id' ), 'message_title' => fep_get_the_title() ) ) . '" class="fep-button">Reply to Sender</a>';
    	}
    });
    

    It will show a button to reply to sender bellow your main message content if that is a group message.
