bbPress registration email confirmation

  • lordrayden


    Hi guys,

    I have gone through a tremendous process to migrate my wp site from multisite to a single site.I believed that bbPress was misbehaving because of my multisite. The thing is that keep having the same issue, when i try to register a user in my bbPress I never receive my email notification to register the user, it seems somehow something in the back end is not working. Please, can you let me know how to solve this? at the moment I am not using any specific loging or registration form but I am planning to, however i have not move forward with this yet as i see I cannot register a user in my new bbPress instance. Please, let me know how I can set this up.

    bbpress registration just uses wordpress registration, so likely a site/wordpress issue

    copy/paste of my standard advice on email – hopefully it will help

    1. You should be aware that many spam filters strip messages that do not come from the correct address. So if your site is and your email address
    in wordpress settings>general is then it is likely that messages will be dumped in transit.
    You need to set up email to come from your site eg, your hosting provider can help if needed.
    2. Just bbpress?
    Then you need to see if this is wordpress wide or just bbpress.

    it could be a theme or plugin issue


    As a test switch to a default theme such as twentyfifteen, and see if this fixes.


    If that doesn’t work, also deactivate all plugins apart from bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    If you cannot do this to your site (say because it is live) then use the ‘troubleshooting’ features of this plugin to let you test without affecting other users

    Health Check & Troubleshooting

    Next try switching to smtp email – this page from the host Siteground explains it

    and of course

    By default, you do NOT receive emails for your own topics/replies, only if somebody else replies on your subscribed topics

    so testing would need two email accounts to prove !



    If you wish to use a different default restriction message for your forums and topics you can customize them from Paid Member Subscriptions -> Settings -> Content Restriction.

    These restriction messages are helpful if you want to have a different marketing copy for forums and topics, leaving the other restricted content with the marketing copy you already have in place.
    Hope this helped you.



    Thanks both! this has been very useful. I have one more question, when I get the email registration confirmation, the email comes from, how do I change these settings so the email comes from my own domain?

    there are several plugins that do this eg

    CB Change Mail Sender

    or you can google for code
