HTML editor for additional event confirmation email text
It would be nice to be able to have an HTML editor for the additional event confirmation text entered on the Manage Event Page that gets inserted into the System Template email template. The benefit would be to be able to easily add links, etc. I understand this will be a complicated one, but it does seem worthwhile as almost every other similar field is HTML, so this one really stands out. See previous issue.
How it works now: Text from the event confirmation email text is added into the event confirmation message template with some minimal tags added. I see a <p> wrapper around the text and <br /> inserted for newlines, at a cursory glance.
Here's my guess at what needs to happen:
- Add HTML editor to Event Configuration
- Add HTML editor on the New Event Registration page (which is also Add Participant from events or Add Event Registration for a contact), so that the message can be edited before sending.
- Inject content as HTML into Message Templates, i.e. remove code that adds tags, wrap code in div or something.
- Convert all existing content in the DB with the same process now taken to inject the text into the Message Template or handle the content injection into the Message Template with two cases based on text/HTML.
The first three should be relatively simple, but the last one there seems like the tricky part. How has this has been handled in the past?
