    Hi Brajesh, I read your answer in the resolved topic ‘Remove the subject line requirement in messages?’

    I am also looking for a way to remove the subject line, but I am not sure how.

    This was the solution you provided:

    You may use the following js(in document ready block) to add the subject on your own

    jQuery(‘#send_message_form’).submit( function() {
    jQuery(‘#subject’).val(“Some message subject”);
    });

    Where do I find the ‘document ready block’ to put in the js?

    Regards
    Carsten

    If there are any issues (I believe BP requires the title to be entered before sending?) there is a plugin called BP Better Messages that enables you to remove the Message Title functionality.

    Hi Graham, thanks for your reply, I appreciate it.

    I know the Better Messages plugin, which have many desirable features, among them that the subject is gone. Another great thing is the design and audio message notification.

    The problem with the plugin is, that it is not just an visual and functional improvement of the BP component, it substitutes it, with the disadvantages it causes.

    Hi Carsten,
    You can put that in your theme’s javascript file. Look for js file in your theme.

    Hi Brajesh, thanks for your answer.

    In the js folder are a number of js files, do I put it in one of the existing files, or do I create a new one, and in that case, what do I call that js file?

    Regards

    Hi Carsten,
    If you ceate a js file, you will need the code to load it too.

    Since it is just 2 lines of code, My suggestion will be to put it in one of the js file provided by theme. Look for a file named buddypress.js and you can put the code inside the dom ready section there. If you are using a custom theme, you may ask there(or check their documents) to see if there is any custom js file supported.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh, I am using the GeneratePress, and I have don some research on adding custom js to the theme. There are no buddypress.js file, the developers recommend to use GP Hooks , which is part of the GP Premium add-ons.

    I am not using their Premium Add ons, so are there no other standardized way of adding js code to a theme?

    Regards

    I copied

    <script>

    jQuery(‘#send_message_form’).submit( function() {
    jQuery(‘#subject’).val(“Some message subject”);
    });

    </script>

    into the custom hook option in the theme, but the ‘subject’ is still showing?
