Further on this question. I am not talking about the admin sending email or email from other WP plugins. My interest is alert members when a new comment is posted to the group.
Here is shot of the BP frontend admin member email status:
And one of the WP backend BP Groups member view:
This email option appears to me to be a part of the BuddyPress product.
Each member has email options “no email, weekly, daily, all email”. This can be set on the backend in Groups, or by the group manager in the front end.
What is needed is to set all the current members, and any new members, to receive email posted to group. In our case, the site admin needs control over this feature without having to visit dozens or hundreds of member profiles.
P.S. I don’t see where to upload image files to this post.
That appears to have worked. Thank you.
We notice that all members email setting is “no mail”. That defeats the purpose of the forum. I am going to start a different note about that.
Great! Thank you.
I will add those bits to our code base and see how far we get.
Thank you for the reply. I apologize. I wasn’t clear.
A new WP user account is created when the customer signs up and pays via another system. The sales team creates the new WP user account and sends a welcome letter with a lot of info.
At this point, we need to add the new user to the BP group. That way the new customer can enjoy all of the resources on the site, including the group membership.
Also, while we can add new members as you describe, they do not appear in the BP group until the new customer logs on. This means they miss other communication disseminated via the BP group.
What I am seeking is a method, a plugin or code snippet for our custom code, to handle this without extra steps on part of our staff and our users.
I have observed this as well. I am wondering if the code snippet sends an invitation, and the user is not added a member until the user confirms. That makes sense in some cases but not all.
In my case, membership is granted upon payment of a subscription. This requires that I be able to add a member at the administrative level. An email asking for confirmation is not required and may be viewed by some as unnecessary complication.
How does the administrator grant membership with immediate effect?
