Redirect Emails on Staging

Description

When using the Staging site on WP Engine, you may want to prevent the staging version of your site from sending emails to your site users. This plugin redirects all emails to the site admin.

This plugin should be activated on your Production site. Don’t worry — it won’t do anything unless it is active on Staging site. Once you create a new copy of your Staging site, the plugin will start taking effect there.

This plugin is compatible with WordPress Multisite. If you’re using it in a Multisite environment, it is recommended to either Network Activate the plugin, or follow the instructions for installing it to the mu-plugins directory.

Installation

Simple installation:

  1. Upload the redirect-emails-on-staging folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress

Advanced installation (mu-plugins directory):

  1. Upload just the redirect-emails-on-staging.php file to your /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory
  2. That’s it… the plugin is already activated! Take a look under Plugins > Must Use

FAQ

Where do I find the Site Admin email?

On a normal WordPress installation, go to the Dashboard, then to Settings > General. Look for the “E-mail Address” field.

On a Multisite WordPress installation, go to the Network Dashboard, then to Settings > Network Settings. Look for the “Network Admin Email” field.

What if I forget to install this plugin when I recreate my Staging Site?

It is recommended to activate this plugin on your Production site. It won’t have any affect on your Production site email, and then when you go to recreate your Staging site, it will already be activated and working.
