[resolved] [Plugin: Welcome Pack] Change Signup Validation e-mail to send to Admins (3 posts)

    WPMU 2.9.2
    BP 1.2.4

    I really, really, really LOVE this Welcome-Pack plugin! This has been extremely instrumental in providing a personalized message to members of my "closed", members only website. However, I'd like to request help, or an update to the plugin.

    As I mentioned, my website is closed and welcome only to registered, logged in members. What I want is for the admin(s) to receive the activation url to click and active the user registration - I do not want the user to have this ability. So, I guess I need two things:

    1. Welcome e-mail sent to user - NO ACTIVATION URL
    2. Signup Validation email sent to admin(s) - corresponding user activation url included

    After the admin approves the user with one-click activation url, the user will still get the confirmation e-mail with their username and password.

    Thanks for hearing me out.

  2. Hi Zachary, thanks for writing.

    As per comments left on the BuddyPress.org forum, no, Welcome Pack won't let you create or change which email address the activation emails are sent to. There is a feature to let you change the text of an email message, but not part 2. of your requirements.

    I'd suggest either writing or finding a plugin that does either both bits, or just the second part.

    Thanks @DJPaul

    Figured out something that works for me, finally. Turns out that the file and function to modify was:

    wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-core\bp-core-filters.php
    -->function bp_core_activation_signup_user_notification( $user, $user_email, $key, $meta )

    Isn't it redundant to have two functions so similar to each other? Both the above function and

    wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-core\bp-core-signup.php
    -->function bp_core_signup_send_validation_email( $user_id, $user_email, $key )

    are extraordinarily similar to each other. It's kinda frustrating.

    I'd consider developing a plugin, but perhaps I'll wait for the first release of WP 3.0.
