Change Default sender from email name My Blog (8 posts)

    hello,
    I have wordpress Multisite installed. I see that when I add users or receive any site wide activity notification I receive it in the name of " My Blog" (i.e site sender from email name). I would like to change this. I have gone to general setting in my network and given site specific names. I have a site name given to the network in network setting. I have tried using the plugin change from email name and also tried adding custom functions such as `add_filter('wp_mail_from_name', 'new_mail_from_name');
    function new_mail_from_name($old) {
    return 'Collegemite Admin';
    }`
    Nothing has worked for me, I still receive mails(As super admin for activities) and send mails(user notifications) in the name of MY Blog. Any who can help me to change this will be highly appreciated. Thanks
    Regards

  2. Is it coming from your blog or your network?

    Go to /wp-admin/network/settings.php and make sure you're not getting the network name. But I think thats where those settings are.

    Sitewide activity would be coming from the network (unless you're talking BuddyPress...)

    Well, I have checked the network name, The network name is my site name. I have installed the plugin SB Welcome Pack to change the from email name, still I dont see any luck. I have Buddypress installed, but Where should I change the site name in Buddypress 1.7 . I have even searched the entire database to find "My Blog" , I dint find any. When any email is sent from my site I receive it as " My Blog" as email from name.

  4. That would be better asked on buddypress.org :(

    Well, I dont have buddy press registration on. Also, The emails go out from wordpress as "My Blog". Buddypress is just a module. I am pretty sure, it is related to wordpress as you dont define any blog name or site name in buddypress or bbpress. I see that the it goes out from the defined admin email address which is on the network, also it takes the site name as subject which is good and expected. The only thing that is not working is change of from email name. I even deactivated buddypress and sent new user email created from back end. still I see "My Blog" as email from name. I think my mistake was when installing WPMU, I did not think it was important to give the site name and went on with My Blog. Now even after changing the name, the site is not responding.
    Is there anywhere else wordpress mu registers My Blog as site name within core files?

    @RTownsend, The problem that I had was with user login control widget plugin. I changed from address from the widget and everything started working well for me. Now I think there are a couple of plugins such as
