Welcome Pack is a BuddyPress plugin that enhances the new user experience. When a user registers on your site, Welcome Pack lets you automatically send them a friend or group invitation, a Welcome Message, and it can redirect them to a Start Page. You can also customise the emails sent by BuddyPress so that they match your site’s brand, in plain text or rich HTML versions.

Version 3.0 & Email Templates

New in Welcome Pack 3.0, I overhauled the email customisation options. Using post types and easy-to-theme HTML templates, Welcome Pack 3.0 is BuddyPress emails done right.

Big thanks to Tammie Lister of Logical Binary for contributing both email templates that are included in the release. If you need awesome design done, you’d do well to talk Tammie.

Email templates work the same as custom page templates; read the WordPress codex for instruction.

  • The text in the header needs to read Email Template for Welcome Pack to find it.
  • In your template, write DPW_CONTENT where you want the email content to be put.
  • Anything can go in email templates that you can put into a normal WordPress template. Shortcodes, The Loop; everything!
