When someone registers or resets password, an email notification is sent to admin. I have site where everyone can register, and I want to disable these emails sent to admin. Could you add option for this?

New functionality does not go into bugfix releases.

Patch is not very professional with the choice of option name either

If a commiter feels like commiting it (It'll be on the list of items now that the keywords are set properly) then it'll be commited to 2.8, else, it'll end up in a Future Release if chosen to be implemented.

-2 to the current patch because of the choice of variable name and option name.

If it were me developing the patch for this, I would try not to let my personal annoyances with what can be a useful facility get in the way of making a patch to disable such functionality.

I'd probably consider something like -

"Send notification of password resets to admin" and
"Send notification of new login creation to admin"

Make both options default to "yes" to mimick current functionality, and make them both seperate options, to increase the flexibility of the patch.

I was not sure how to implement this (add one or two new options), so I choose name which was funny (at least for me) in order to get quicker response :).

I changed my patch according to mrmist suggestions. New version is attached.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Those functions are pluggable for this very reason. Define new versions of the functions in a plugin.
