Does anyone know of a way to create a hyperlink that launches a PM window to a specific user?

For example, in my guild officer section, I have the in-game names listed. I would like to be able to click on the in-game name for the officer, and launch a message window to their GP account.

Any ideas?

Just open up the PM box, copy the URL and make the member name a hyperlink. This works in freeform text/html windows, not sure about where else it might work, certainly not in forum windows as it just brings up "support+<link details>"

I looked on your site (nice btw) but couldnt see any officer listings, and im not sure how editable your roster is so I cant be sure the PM hyperlink will work.

I'm not sure how it works for most people, but when I open a PM box it does not show me the URL for it. I'm not sure how to find that, although I feel like I looked around quite a bit. Maybe there's a trick I don't know about?

I have the officers listed on the home page, and on the roster page. I manually entered their names in a free form box which sits to the side.

Thanks for replying!

click on the letter icon by the name and the URL/hyperlink at top of browser should change..as I said it will work in html box.  I just checked it to make sure
for instance the URL to your Guild portal mailbox is.

No alternate text supplied.

It doesn't seem to work right for me. Maybe it's because I'm using Firefox?

Either way, I got it to work. I had to open the PM box, right click anywhere, and select "Send link." Then, the URL would be entered into a compose mail window, and I could just copy and paste it from there.

Thanks so much anyway!!

Why don't you just use the built in officer's list - that comes with mail links already...
