3 settings issues on private messaging

HI there,

#1) If I click on new message on a page where I included the shortcode [pm_user] the user is not able to specify a title. As a result all messages are titled with "You have new message!" which is not very useful. How can I allow users to type in a title?

#2) Can I change the sender email from the email notification to the main website email / admin email. I do not want that the email of a certain user is visible when he or she does not allow it.

#3) The reply button is very small and it is not very clear that you reply by clicking on this button. How can I insert a text "reply" in the button? thanks!

    Hey @Alessandro Schneider,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    Make sure to add Subject attribute to shortcode, so it looks like this:
    [pm_user user_id="2" subject=""]

    Unfortunately such option is not currently available but if you could open new thread in features & feedback section our developers could consider adding such feature.

    You can try adding this CSS code to change this:

    .fa-reply:after {
    	content: "Reply";
    	margin-left: 5px;
    }

    Below is the screenshot of how it should look after that.

    If your theme doesn't have custom CSS field, then you may wish to use a child theme or a plugin like this one for this additional CSS. That way you're protected when you come to upgrade.

    Best regards,
