Custom HTML BuddyPress emails?

  • tomclaarke


    Hi all,

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I’m pretty new to WordPress, after using Shopify for many years.

    I have BuddyPress installed on my website, but I do not like the emails that are sent to people when they sign up to my website.

    I know there is a customiser in WP, but it only lets me change very basic features.

    I built my own email template using HTML. When I go in to the email template (e.g. Activate Account), and paste my HTML in to the text editor, Update and Preview Changes, it just pastes my email over the existing template that I can not delete.

    Is there a way to completely delete all of the BP emails, and then have my own custom HTML ones?

    Long story short, I want my own HTML-based BP emails, and I do not want the templates to exist on my site.

    Many thanks for your help,

    Oh, and I can’t even add a new email. It says it will not let me edit it!

    I think this Codex page will answer your questions:


    If you want to change the template used, check out “customize email template.”
