Fix Forum Emails

Fixes unwanted HTML entities in bbPress notification email subject lines and message bodies.

Email notifications sent by bbPress will sometimes include unwanted HTML entities, particularly in the email subject but sometimes in the email text as well.

For example, a forum topic as follows:

        My thoughts & objections

might come through with an email subject as follows:

        My thoughts & objections

There is a fix for this marked "under consideration" in the bbPress bug tracking system: https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2865

In the meantime, this plugin implements a version of the suggested fix. (Props to @thebrandonallen for the patch code.)

IMPORTANT NOTES:

This plugin only works with bbPress 2.5.8 (the current version at the time of plugin release.)

If you're using other plugins that affect how bbPress sends emails, then this plugin may not solve your HTML entities issues.
