Quoting new post content in notification email.

I want to add the content of a new reply to a discussion to the email notifications.

My best guess at the moment is to add something to $Definition['EmailNotification'] and $Definition['EmailStoryNotification'], in conf/locale.php. But I don't know what to add.

Also related, how do I figure out the meaning of %1$s, %2$s, etc? I'd guess it depends on the context where, in this case, EmailNotification and EmailStoryNotification appears?

    As far as I can tell those translations belong to a plugin: EMailSubscribe. They wouldn't be of any use here.

    The notifications are initiated when a content is saved, so you would have to look at the CommentModel. The long text of an Activity is called story and see what is found when you look in the CommentModel for Story!

    I would say adding $Configuration['Vanilla']['Activity']['ShowCommentBody'] = true; to your /conf/config.php should do the trick!

    That's hard to find, but you can read it up here.
