Include Visible URL in HTMLized Comment Emails

Include Visible URL in HTMLized Comment Emails

Short, concise description of the idea
Have the URL of the relevant comment page be visible as well as linked in the email sent when you receive a comment.

Full description of the idea
Currently, in an HTML email it will state "User (user) replied to your LiveJournal post in which you said:" and the "your LiveJournal post" part will be a link to the post. I propose that the wording be changed to "User (user) replied to your LiveJournal post (URL goes here) in which you said:", so that those of us who choose to can easily cut and paste the link into our browser rather than have the email client deal with it. (My email client will either launch it in a window I already have open or, if the browser is not running, open the browser with that URL as the URL for every window opened until I close the browser again. I dislike it when it does either of those things.)

An ordered list of benefits

  • Allows one to copy/paste the URL from the email client to a browser.
  • Allows one to see the URL for any other purpose that might come up.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Makes the email look more cluttered.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Have someone edit the code that generates the email to also include the URL.
  • Tags: notifications: email, ~ historical
    • Post a new comment
