Support » Plugin: New User Approve » Customize approval message

  • The admin of my site is currently getting the request for approval emails but they are the default WordPress registration message (e.g. That email is okay, but it would be nice to have a link in the email to make moderation easier. I see the new_user_approve_request_approval_message filter that appears to build a nicer email like I mention but is it not being sent. Is there something I need to do to turn make that filter work, or is this a bug?

  • I too want this addition. When someone signs up I – as the admin – want an email sent to me that says, “A new user has signed up, do you want to Approve or Deny this sign up?”.

    Approve would then activate their membership and send them a welcome email and Deny would do nothing (or maybe send them a rejection email).



    I’ll ‘third’ that motion. A clear subject line for easy filtering to the admin, and a custom message that the user sees on first attempt to join, to allow each site to indicate why they are requiring the Approve/Deny cycle.

    Great tool as it stands – has completely (so far!) killed off the user registrations from scam-services wanting to be able to auto-insert crap ads on out classified swap site.

    Another vote for this. This plugin hardcodes the welcome message instead of using the default wordpress message, hence other plugins are incompatible. I’d settle for the plugin just using the wordpress default and then I could use another plugin to customise the message or write my own. I did actually try writing my own which works perfectly as a customisation of the wordpress default but which is, of course, incompatible with New User Approve! My current solution is to hack the plugin around line 320 on. Don’t like doing this but could’nt find another way to have new user approval and a custom welcome message. This is a great shame as this is a really useful plugin. At least the code in the plugin is very tidily commented.
