Support » Plugin: New User Approve » [Plugin: New User Approve] No E-Mail Notification Being Sent to Admin for New Users

  • Resolved nasair


    I get other notification emails and the user gets the approval email, but I’m not getting an email letting me know a new user signed up and needs approval…Help?

    I would like to be receiving the notification via email when a new user registers.
    To be clear, other notifications via email do work, so it seems the host is setup correctly.

    What’s wrong here, what can I do?
    Thanks in advance.

  • This plugin works exactly how I want but like nasair the password recovery doesn’t while it is activated. It seems to be missing something because once you add the email in to retrieve the password it just goes straight to the login screen. When the plugin is deactivated a message appear to tell you to check your email.

    Sorry I put this post in the wrong blog. This did happen to me but the email was in my “Junk Email” box

    I am have the same problem. I installed this plugin and though they show on my admin panel, I don’t get an email notifying me of a new user. I do get them for comments and ping backs. I have triple checked everything and still don’t see where I have made a mistake. It has been several months since the previous member posted this problem and there is still no resolution.



    FYI: I had to change lines 425-426 in new-user-approve.php


    ` // send email to user telling of approval
    $user_login = stripslashes( $user->user_login );
    $user_email = stripslashes( $user->user_email );`


    `// send email to user telling of approval
    $user_login = stripslashes( $user->data->user_login );
    $user_email = stripslashes( $user->data->user_email );`

    After that, notifications were sent correctly…



    To email the admin with the NEW USER REGISTRATION message, I did this:

    on line 336, there’s the wp_mail function.
    It seems to be a problem with the 4th paramenter.
    I just removed that 4th paramenter and it worked like a charm 🙂

    also… in the email, there is a link leading to the page to approve users. That link is broken too.
    So I changed line 328 to:
    $message .= get_option( 'siteurl' ) . '/wp-admin/users.php?page=new-user-approve-admin' . "\r\n";

    that should do it 🙂

    @n00b0101 I updated the code to use your change.

    @kilinkis the link is updated as well.

    Both of these changes are in version 1.5.2. of the plugin.



    Same Problem here, Plugin updated version..Users get emails that they are approved, but admin does not receive the mails.Please help.

    Note: I have used the below code to disable activation email to users..

    function disable_validation( $user_id ) {

    global $wpdb;

    $wpdb->query( $wpdb->prepare( “UPDATE $wpdb->users SET user_status = 0 WHERE ID = %d”,

    $user_id ) );


    add_action( ‘bp_core_signup_user’, ‘disable_validation’ );

    function fix_signup_form_validation_text() {

    return false;


    add_filter( ‘bp_registration_needs_activation’, ‘fix_signup_form_validation_text’ );

    add_filter( ‘bp_core_signup_send_activation_key’, create_function(”,’return false;’) );

    It looks like you are trying to hook it into BuddyPress. That is not supported currently. It is on the list for future development. Sorry about that.



    Yes, you are right, I am using wordpress, buddypress implementation. I can see a code that says send email to admin? Is this for future development? Sorry if I am wrong?

    Is there any way I use your plugin and simultaneously send email to admin when someone registers…using any other code ..until your next release..
