I know I must be missing it

But I am trying to add to the user postbit in the forum area to allow a user to start a conversation from there. I've used TMS and was able to copy the info from the Membercard to the message_user_info, but that gives you both the "Follow" and "Profile" links. When I try to pull the "Follow" code out the modification does not save (I'm also using the mod that places an editor under the user name).

I'm not total newbie to this, but am coming from myBB, which is a little different.

Arrow indicates where I'm trying to get the the ability installed, and want to change it from "Start Conversation" to "Send PM" as that is what most users are familiar with. I know that I can do the "Send PM" by placing the appropriate information into the languages file - it's just getting the data to show that I'm having problems with.


Shouldn't be too hard, just add the following

<xen:if is="{$canStartConversation}"><a href="{xen:link conversations/add, '', 'to={$user.username}'}">{xen:phrase start_conversation}</a></xen:if>
xen:phrase start_conversation
with whatever you'd like to use.
