Support » Fixing WordPress » Disable new blog welcome email

  • moose1


    I am migrating a bunch of old WPMu sites to a new 3.0 network install.

    I want to create the new sites without sending out the welcome email that contains the new blog address and login info because the sites are not ready yet and it will just confuse people.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Under ‘Super Admin -> Users’, look for this option (it’s a checkbox) –

    Registration notification – Send the network admin an email notification every time someone registers a site or user account.



    Hi duck_boy,

    I believe that just disables the email that goes to the main WP install admin (me in this case), as opposed to the specific site administrator assigned to a particular sub-site. Is that correct?

    Yes it does, thought that is what you were after – sorry, mis-read your post.



    This works. In functions.php, add this function:

    add_filter('wp_mail', 'disable_email_filter');
    function disable_email_filter($result = '') {
    	$to = '';
    	$subject = '';
    	$message = '';
    	$headers = '';
    	$attachments = array ();
    	return compact('to', 'subject', 'message', 'headers', 'attachments');

    If you want to make this a permanent feature without disabling email notifications altogether, here’s how you might do it:

    function db_remove_new_site_notification_email( $blog_id, $user_id, $password, $title, $meta ) {
    return false;
    add_filter( 'wpmu_welcome_notification', 'db_remove_new_site_notification_email' );
