[resolved] Custom sender email/name? (4 posts)

    Hey gang.

    Just asking if there's a way to override the sender name (WordPress) and email (wordpress@my-domain.com) within the plugin? Or can it be added in the settings page? Otherwise, could anyone point me to the (core) file I could hack to change these settings.

    Thanks mucho.

    There are a couple plugins that do this:

    However, if you are handy with php, it would be way more efficient to override this in your theme's functions.php file. Here's an example of how to do this.

    Hi.

    I tried using a similar plugin to change sender name/email. However, it had overridden your email function (learned the hard way when someone joined our site) which I liked since it provides a link to the new user profile (useful for admin-approved membership) in the message.

    I will look up the links you supplied and do additional online searches. Will probly hard code so I see what exactly is going on. Or maybe one of these plugins will not do what I described above?

    Thanks!

    I tried Mail From and it behaves the way I want it to. Also looked at its code and saw it used the same hooks shown in the link above. Thanks again for your excellent support and plugin.
