How To Add A Custom WordPress New Member Registration Email Notification Message

By default, all WordPress sites are configured to send an email message to both the site Admin and the New user including some information for example, the site Admin is sent an email notification containing ” New ‘New user registration on your site xxxx, the new members user name and email address”, while the newly registered member is sent an email notification containing ” his or her username, the auto generated password and the log in URL”, without anything like an additional message from the site for example a welcome message.

This is something which many WordPress site owners would like to change so as to be able to include their own custom messages emailed to their new site members for example in addition to the username, the auto generated password and the log in URL, a message like “Welcome to my site xxxxxx xxxx xxx” will be added. Such a thing is something which is not easily configured since most site owners don’t know much with programming and if you are among those who would like to do the above but still failed, below is a simple way to get started.

Note: This is something to deal with editing and which at any time may cause some problem on your site, and as a precaution, you need to make a back up of the file you are going to edit so that in case of any malfunction, you can easily replace it and have your site up and running once again within a few seconds.

I would recommend that you use a file transfer protocol client like FileZilla to access your site through FTP.

1. Open your FTP client and in put your site Host address, your site username and password to connect.

2. Now open the WP INCLUDES folder and search for pluggable.php file.

3. Right click on the file and select the view/edit option so as to download your site locally and be able to edit it.

4. In the opened pluggable.php file, use commands CTRL + F and search for the below codes

$message = sprintf(__(‘Username: %s’), $user_login) . “rn”;
$message .= sprintf(__(‘Password: %s’), $plaintext_pass) . “rn”;
$message .= wp_login_url() . “rn”;

5. Now Add this code;

$message .= __(‘Your message her. Add anything of your choice.’);

Below the lines in 4 above where by the final code will be;

$message = sprintf(__(‘Username: %s’), $user_login) . “rn”;
$message .= sprintf(__(‘Password: %s’), $plaintext_pass) . “rn”;
$message .= wp_login_url() . “rn”;
$message .= __(‘Your message her. Add anything of your choice.’);

Please note that you should replace the words “Your message her. Add anything of your choice” with your own custom message, the one which you want all new members to get upon registering on your site.

Save your file and re-upload it back to its folder. You can test the message you will get by trying to create an account on your site using your email address.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive
    content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you
    know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped
    off? I’d really appreciate it.
