[resolved] Registration notification emails go to old address after updating admin email. (4 posts)

    I just updated email address for admin account of my site.

    However when I create a new WP-Members account, the registration notification emails are still being sent to my old email address.

    Could this be a possible bug with the plugin? How can I get those notification emails to be sent to the current email address listed in the profile for the administrative account?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    The emails don't go to the address in the profile of the admin account. This is for a few reasons, the most common of which is that in larger sites, there could be many admins, or the admin could change from one user to another user account.

    The emails will by default be sent to the email account listed in your WP General Settings. See: http://rocketgeek.com/plugins/wp-members/users-guide/registration/moderating-registration/

    If you need the notification address to be different than this setting (or need multiple receivers of the notification), the notification address can be filtered with the wpmem_notify_addr filter. See: http://rocketgeek.com/plugins/wp-members/users-guide/filter-hooks/wpmem_notify_addr/

    D'oh! I should've known that! It was just the end of a long day for me. Thanks again for your help in clarifying.

    Overall the plugin has been very good so far. Going to give it a rating and add it to my favorites.
