SB Welcome Email Editor
"Forgot Password" email fields stuck in default settings (7 posts)

    I was able to change the default messages and subject lines in the other email messages using the SB Welcome Email settings, but the email that users receive when requesting a password reset remain THE SAME even after I have changed the text in the two fields:

    1. Forgot Password Email Subject
    2. Forgot Password Message

    I don't have any problems when I change the text in the "User Email Subject" and "User Email Body" fields. But for whatever the reason, the forgot password fields are stuck in their default settings.

    Is there a bug/conflict with the plugin? Or am I missing something?

    I have a similar problem. Except that I do not receive any mail about the password forgotten!

    Same here. Forgot password message still sends the WordPress default.

    I checked the plugin and here is a fix.

    Add these hooks anywhere you like but I prefer adding them before their respective functions.

    add_filter ("retrieve_password_title", "sb_we_lost_password_title");
    add_filter ("retrieve_password_message", "sb_we_lost_password_message");

    These will fire the ready made functions from Sean. And Viola, it will now work perfectly.

    I have added the two line suggested by jamesbo, but the sent emails are written in plain text. So the variables [user_name] or the HTML-link aren't shown corrent. Is there a solution?

    Of course, "Send Email As" is set to "HTML".

    Thanks and beste regards

    Adding those lines, cleaning up cache and deactivating any other plugin that attempts to manage my email make it work.
