How to Disable New User Notification Emails with LoginPress (Hook)

You can disable WordPress to send the reset password email to the new user if you enable the Custom Password Fields inside the LoginPress settings using some custom code. 

Here are the steps you need to follow in order to disable it:

Step 1: Enable LoginPress Custom Password Fields

Navigate to LoginPress and click on the Settings option.


A new screen with all of the LoginPress Settings will open up.

From here, Enable the Custom Password Fields feature.

Step 2: Add the Snippet in the Theme’s functions.php File.

Once you’ve enabled the Custom Password Fields, you’ll need to add the snippet in the theme’s functions.php file to disable the reset password email sent to the user upon successful registration.

Note: It’s recommended to use a child theme to edit the functions.php file instead of the parent theme. There are chances to lose the modified code when you update your theme. It might cause some adverse effects on your website.

This code will ensure that only the admin gets the registration email upon new user registration and not the user who is being created, as it will set its new password from the registration form of LoginPress.

Here is the hook which we are going to use for this purpose.


Usage in functions.php:

function loginpress_wp_new_user_notification_email_cb( $wp_new_user_notification ) {

      $wp_new_user_notification['to'] = '';

      return $wp_new_user_notification;


add_filter( 'wp_new_user_notification_email', 'loginpress_wp_new_user_notification_email_cb' );

All Done! Easy right? This is how you can easily prevent WordPress from sending emails to new users upon registering by using the hook mentioned above.
