GDPR - Provide filter on $email_data for the confirmed action emails

I was wondering if along with the user_confirmed_action_email_content filter for $email_text > $content should there also be a filter for the $email_data so plugins/devs can customize the array (request, user_email, description, manage_url, sitename, siteurl, admin_email) as this information is all used after the user_confirmed_action_email_content filter to update the $content so there’s not currently a method to customize this data before it's use.

The $email_data array I'm referring to;

Hey Garret,

Thanks for bringing up this issue.

It appears that the user_confirmed_action_email_content filter can be used to alter the content of the e-mail to any extent. The e-mail data doesn't really need to be filtered for this.

Thanks @soulseekah, should the filter be moved after all the str_replaces though so it's able to act on the completed email as you can't modify say the description as easily as it doesn't get included int he $content until after the filter. Cheers

Moving the filter further down would provide the content without the ###PLACEHOLDER### text. So for example, if you want to change the wording for the description, you would filter by:

add_filter( 'user_confirmed_action_email_content', function( $content, $data ) {
    return str_replace( '###DESCRIPTION###', 'The new description', $content );
}, 10, 2 );

Much easier than trying to work with the rendered text.
