#36009 closed enhancement (fixed)

wp_new_user_notification "user" option for third parameter

Reported by: jonathandejong's profile Jonathandejong Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 4.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.4.2

I propose adding a third option for the third parameter $notify in wp_new_user_notification() called "user" (string) which would allow for sending the notification to the user only. Many user-driven sites have the need for sending this email to new users but would rather not flood an admin email with registration notifications.

I don't think this only flaw is enough to justify plugging the function with a custom one. It'd be much preferred to allow for this third option in the core function instead.

I agree this would be a useful addition. I've attached 36009.diff which adds this functionality. The few lines indented by the if block added are also fixed for spacing issues to adhere to the WordPress coding standards.

I'm shocked that this landed without a unit test. May I remind you about [35735]?

Also,wp_send_new_user_notifications() is a wrapper for wp_new_user_notification() and should get a note about the new parameter too.

#9 @SergeyBiryukov

In 37277:

Users: Add a unit test for [37276].

See #36009.

I submitted the following suggestion here which turns out to be a duplicate of this one!

Adding a user email only option is great idea.
