    How do you get wordpress to send an email after registration? Is there a function or should I hook onto something?

    Ok, I made a custom confirmation email (sends password and such) ...looks pretty...

    But wordpress still send the default one. How do I either:

    1. Disable default confirm email.
    2. Modify the body of the default email?

    If I understand correctly, I can't just insert that into a theme's function file, but I have to make that a separate plugin?

    No harm trying to use this in your theme's functions.php :)

    If it doesn't exist...then use it. Problem: It exists...so doesn't get used.

    Conversely "Cannot re-declare function" will happen if I strip the !function_exists part.

    I have a funny way of choosing all the impossible stuff to do in wordpress.

    Yes my bad, you have to define this function in a plugin.

    *facehand* so I have to make a plugin to do what my theme should already do....been trying to avoid that.

    Thanks though I guess that is what has to happen.

    Check http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/welcome-email-editor/ .

    It hooks onto "wpmu_welcome_user_notification". I haven't tried it, though, whether it works exclusively for WPMU.

    Give it a shot!
