Disable New User Notification


Since WordPress 4.3, a strong email is automatically created for a user while registering a new user. However, the user will receive an email, with a password reset link, after registration.

Not everyone wants that email to be sent out – so this plugin does one thing – Stops registration emails from being sent out.


  1. Upload ‘disable-new-user-notification` file to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

It works, but it needs this tweak as noted by a previous reviewer:

<UPDATE> There seems to be an error in the code (not sure how the other reviews had it work without this fix). It’s a simple fix, just go into the “Edit” function of your plugin and fix the code there. Here is a helpful link: I’ll give it 5 stars since it works after the fix! </END UPDATE> Agreed that there are a lot of terrible plugins floating out there for this simple problem, but then when I installed, activated, and tested, the new user still received an e-mail notification… Any help would be awesome! Will immediately change this to a 5 star if it can be resolved!

After trying a few hacky functions floating around out there, this plugin did the trick. No settings, just activate and you’re good to go! Love the new secure password feature, but on some site you want control over the emails being sent…thnx for this!
