Disable WordPress New User Email Notification

When a new user creates an account on a wordpress.org blog, the administrator is sent a notification email. Websites that have a large number of signups each day can generate a lot of emails announcing each new user.

I wrote a simple WordPress plugin to disable the new user notification email. Visit this plugin’s page in the official WP Plugins Directory.

Installation instructions

  1. Download disable-wp-new-user-notification.zip
  2. Decompress the file contents
  3. Upload the disable-wp-new-user-notification folder to a WordPress plugins directory (/wp-content/plugins)
  4. Activate the plugin from the Administration Dashboard
