Bug Description

I receive email notifications to the questions I have asked/answered/edited on . But the emails don't have a hyperlink pointing to the question concerned. This would be very effective since otherwise the link has to be manually typed/searched remembering the question in mind.

Weird, I can't seem to replicate the error. Can you attach one of such emails to the bug report please?

Sorry to attach a PDF but couldn't find any other way to download the mail.... please convey the method to download and the format, if you want it in some other one.

Sounds like the email alert content/formatting can be improved.

Thanks Jobin. I think that the report can be improved. The email notification has a link only to the comment, not to the question itself. One way to improve it would be to add the link to the question at the beginning of the message. So the message would be something like:

For question <question title and link>:

<user> posted a <comment>:

> comment

Please note - you can easily change how often you receive these notifications or unsubscribe. Thank you for your interest in our forum!

Ya that format sounds better, lets see if we can bring this early

Jobin, thank you for posting the sample.

So we have a thread posted below, and we could insert links in the corresponding section:


| in response to answer: <link here>
| .....
| ....
|| in response to question: <link here>

What ideas do you have for improving the formatting?
