#16235 closed enhancement (fixed)

Site Welcome Email sent without regard to noconfirmation flag

Description (last modified by dd32)

In multisite and the super_admin adds a new user to a site,
if the user is new to the network, WP sends out the welcome email (but not the confirmation of being added to the site)

In my client's use case, they were looking for the SBD (silent but deadly) mode, as in no email at all should go out.

The language implies there is "no" notification but the welcome email belies that language.

if even the welcome email should be disabled, then
in wp-admin/user-new.php (around line 108)
add_filter('wpmu_welcome_user_notification', ''__return_false');
would kill the new user notification from wpmu_activate_signup() (a few lines later)

What about a filter in wp_new_user_notification() too, for similar end result?

In 29880:

Do not send a welcome notification when noconfirmation has been flagged

When adding a new user to a site on the network, 2 emails are sent out - one for confirmation and one as a welcome. If the option for no confirmation is selected, neither should send.

Fixes #16235

Hi there,

to be honest, I was surprised that ticking the "No confirmation" email box also prevents the "Welcome mail" to be sent, and thought it was a bug.

Is there any way to revert that behavior, i.e. create a user without sending the "confirmation email" but sending the "Welcome mail" ? I need to let my users know their passwords one way or another...



#15 @transom

I initiated this ticket because of a similar surprise "suppressing messages still sent out a welcome email".

You'll note that the future direction of sending user passwords via email in plain text is likely to also disappear regardless of this setting - per this note on the blog

The hooks and filters are still available to customize the signup experience.
