    Morning All,

    I can see Buddypress integrates with WC Vendor Pro

    How would I go about adding a ‘private message’ button on a product?

    Thanks in advanced

    Jamie is going to add a shiny new communication system for customers and vendors next year 🙂 but I’d be interested if the Buddypress ‘private message’ button can be added in the meantime



    I have got this working, not an ideal solution but…

    Copy the WooCommerce title.php template into your theme/woocommerce/single-product/

    Then add the following code:

    <?php if( current_user_can('vendor')): ?>
    <a href="<?php bp_send_private_message_link() ?>" title="Private Message">Private Message</a>
    <?php endif; ?>

    It works but perhaps their is a better way of doing this?


    Actually, that code isn’t ideal, it should be:

    <?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) echo '<a href="' . wp_nonce_url( bp_loggedin_user_domain() . bp_get_messages_slug() . '/compose/?r=' . get_the_author_meta('user_login') ) . '" title="Send a private message to this user" class="send-message">Private Message</a>'; ?>
    WC Vendors Support

    I’d improve that even further by adding an else with a button to the /my-account/ page to “Register to send a private message” or something like that. Lot of people won’t login to shop, but will login to send messages — if they know they need to.


    Good idea!

    A shiny new communication system tailored specifically for this sounds AMAZING!!!
