Support » Fixing WordPress » Bug in Email of Password to New Registrants Found

  • For the past several weeks, I’ve had reports of people subscribing to my blog and getting an email confirmation that was blank. I’ve spent about 8 hours on this problem After digging pretty deeply on this, we think we’ve got a lock on what’s going on. ┬áThe password info is getting sent when a new user mail goes out, but it’s getting lumped in with the rest of the mail header info.

    Here’s an excerpt of the full message view from Gmail; note the bold lines.

    Subject: [OneMind] Your username and password
    Date: Wed, 28 Jul 2010 01:15:51 +0000
    From: WordPress <
    Message-ID: <>
    X-Priority: 3
    X-Mailer: PHPMailer ( [version 2.0.4]
    MIME-Version: 1.0
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=”UTF-8″
    Username: dhtest
    Password: f$oF!0x3

    Clearly a carriage return is missing before the email content is appended to the header for transmission.

    I assume this is probably a WP3 bug but I haven’t seen any other reports of this issue here. I’d sure appreciate someone fixing this one ASAP or letting me know where else to look.

  • Can anyone confirm that this is working for them? I can’t believe that I can post a fairly serious bug report and in two days not get a peep of a response here. Unless I’m the only one with the problem?

    Don’t know if you are the only one, but I turned on registration for my site and registered myself with a different email and I got two emails, one to the new user me and one to admin me – both had what looked like good info in them.

    A common debug suggestion is to turn off your Plug-In’s and see if things get better or try the default theme or 2010 Theme.

    I have in fact disabled all plugins to no effect. I have also tried the default theme. This problem must be in the core code because, as you can see from the fragment I provided above, the email is being formatted wrong.

    Any ideas where I might fine a developer who would look at this for a fee and fix it? I’m out of ideas and this is really hurting my site badly.

    There is a job posting area here somewhere connected to this site but I am sorry that I can’t remember where it is.

    You might have a corrupted file in your install, but what section would need to be reloaded is above my pay-grade so I am reluctant to give you advice on that.
