Fix Forum Emails


Email notifications sent by bbPress will sometimes include unwanted HTML entities, particularly in the email subject but sometimes in the email text as well.

For example, a forum topic as follows:

        My thoughts & objections

might come through with an email subject as follows:

        My thoughts & objections

There is a fix for this marked «under consideration» in the bbPress bug tracking system:

In the meantime, this plugin implements a version of the suggested fix. (Props to @thebrandonallen for the patch code.)


This plugin only works with bbPress 2.5.8 or later.

If you’re using other plugins that affect how bbPress sends emails, then this plugin may not solve your HTML entities issues.


  1. Install this plugin via the WordPress plugin control panel, or by manually downloading it and uploading the extracted folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activa el plugin desde el menú ‘Plugins’ de WordPress
  3. That’s all! There are no configurable options for this plugin.


I’m still seeing HTML entities in my emails.

Check that you’re not using other add-on plugins that affect how bbPress sends
emails. If you aren’t, please report this to us as a bug (including details
of which HTML entities are appearing and where), and we’ll see what
we can do.
