email registrations/password resets not sent

  • Hi, bbPress appears to run well on the popular, with the notable and problematic exception of emailing users passwords, both on registration and for password resets.

    A thread from last year posted a workaround for new users, bypass email and show users their generated password in the browser.

    However the patch no longer applies, or at least I couldn’t see how and where to apply it. There seems to have been quite a bit of code change in the last 7 months, and the fellow who posted that patch seems to have chosen a different route as the forums are no longer there on his site.

    Even if this patch could be updated to apply to the current bbPress code base however it would not deal (I think) with the also much needed function of resetting passwords.

    Sourceforge has posted a workaround for projects who need to use email registration, basically queue the messages up and fire them off in a cron job.

    I personally would be happy to see that implemented in bbPress, as a plugin since it’s SF specific, however I’ve seen a number of other threads which indicate a more generic solution would be useful:


    Will someone please help? I can’t write the code to make it so, but am willing to trade time with someone who can. Or perhaps you’d like a nice map or poster from the Yukon? Just let me know what you’d like.

    Thank you for your time and reading this far,


    For what it’s worth, the scenario that got me started on this was being locked out of my own forum while testing, exactly like this fellow:

    thank you Trent for the workaround posted there!
