Good point. I didn't think of that. I will add parameter to bypass that.

That would be nice, but another question is:

What is written in the email that will be send from de Public Comment?
The template itself or the result of the template?

I tried to check, by putting one on my own profile, but the I don't get any e-mail.
Perre, I just posted one on your profile, so you should get an email.

Here is the text of the e-mail:

The following message from Jan Terink was posted on your WikiTree profile.


Do not reply to this e-mail. Instead, you might want to:


If the message looks like bulk e-mail spam please delete the comment from the profile and forward this to immediately. To unsubscribe from these updates, go to your settings page.

So in my opinion, the template is not fit for use in the Public Comment.

I tested  subst: and it works just in the profile text....

Looks like a bug

The email function should pre process the
comment and do the transclusion before sending it in
the same way the comment is pre processed before being displayed...
