Issue with receiving emails with new posts

  • Carter Temm


    Hi, So yesterday, I installed bb press on my WordPress site. I finally created a forum, as well as a test topic. Knowing I wanted users to be able to create accounts, I went to settings>general and checked the anyone can create accounts box or something like that. but when I go to register, it is not sending me the email with a password. I can of course login with my username and password, or manually create accounts for who ever wants to use the forum, but that would be defeating the purpose of what I’m trying to do. I don’t know if something is not configured correctly in PHP mail, because I am fairly new with that. Any help would be much appreciated.

  • Hi,
    If you talk about plain WordPress with bbPress installed on top of it, then both users and emails are handled by WordPress. Creation of a new user is a WordPress thing, not related to bbPress.
    Do you get emails for normal things you do in WordPress ? Are you using any SMTP tool ? Are you sure emails do not arrive in your spam ?
    If emails work for WordPress, then don’t forget that you will not receive an email for your own topics…


    If everything works on WordPress, but it’s really related to bbPress, then check out
