Admin Add Users/Create Passwords without Sending Email (18 posts)

    Is there any user management plugin which allows me, as an admin, to assign usernames and passwords, and to add the newly assigned users into my private blog, all within my own control? All without sending the user an email?

    I understand I need unique email addresses for each user.

    Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated.

    The function wp_new_user_notification is pluggable, which means that you could write a plugin that handles it the way you want it handled (ie - doesn't send email to the user) - and the system will use your version instead of the built-in version.

    I've tried to write simple plugins before without success. Although I did just order Vladimir Prelovac's new book:

    Maybe I'll give it a shot;) I just thought a plugin may already exist that accomplishes this.

    Hi folks,

    Just wondering if, in the three months since my original post, anyone would know of an already existing plugin that would accomplish what I describe above?

    There is a premium plugin I believe which allows the user to create their own password. But in terms of how you want the process to be organized, I am not quite sure.

    <?php
    function wpmu_new_user_notification() {}

    @wpmuguru - Thanks, I'll look into that:)

    Some more info...
    Here's the premium plugin. Although it does allow username/password creation at signup, and blocks email activation email, it's focused on blog and user creation together.

    I want to create a user on an individual blog in the backend and set the username/password at time of creation...and block (or have the option to send or not) and email notifying that user.

    What!? Are you pulling my leg? Is it in the 2.8.1beta do you know?

    Yep, just tested it. There's a checkbox when you add a user to a blog, and you can check to NOT send them a confirmation email.

    Cool!...and this includes setting a password?

    I'll just be patient until the official release then:)

    Not the password part, no.

    Hrm. You'd still have to go to their user profile and reset it.

    ...not ideal, but that'll work. Thanks for letting us all know:)

    Not on the front end though, which is what the premium plugin is primarily for.

    FYI - I just upgraded to 2.8.1 and tried adding a user with the option to NOT send an email checked and the user received the email.

    I dunno if I did something wrong or if this is a bug. Can anyone else please try and confirm or deny this behavior?

    I get the same result as you awarner20.

    On 2.8.5.2 what happens is that it skips the ACTIVATION email, but still sends an email with the user's login information. So, users don't have to click to activate their account.
