Gravity Forms User Registration Add-On activation email template?

  1. Hi,

    since the new Gravity Forms User Registration Add-On v1.5 features an email activation, I was wondering if there is an option to modify the email that is sent out (requesting the activation) with a custom text?

    If there is, I must have overlooked it. If there isn't, please consider this a feature request. ;-)

    I'll move this to feature requests as I don't see any hooks/filters that would let you easily make a change in that respect.

  3. Please, please, please help make the registration/login/logout process more effective and elagant. The WP default welcome email is a terrible way to start a relationship with site users. It just seems obvious that the user-registration add-on would address this, but it does not.

    If Gravity Forms would enable a custom welcome email and provide a simple login/logout widget (Justin Tadlock's "member" widget does not even provide a logout button once you're logged in??) it would make WP/GF integration so much more attractive.

    I'm pulling my hair out trying to clean up this registration/login/out process with plugins, but it's a nightmare. The best option, "Theme my Login", seems to have a conflict with GF.

    Please take the user registration add-on to the next step of really managing the registration process. Thank you...

  5. I have a request/question, it's related to this post so figured I would add it here instead of a new thread.

    I use both GF and Theme My Login (TML) to accomplish what Sascha is wanting. TML will allow you to customize the User Emails, From, To, Admin Notices etc etc etc with whatever template you want.

    There is one issue I find slightly annoying with GF. When a user goes through the default User Registration process (not using a GF) all the custom TML templates will trigger just fine. If I choose to use GF User Registration as the form for a user to register it bypasses the hooks that trigger the custom templates and falls back to the default WP text based emails (which are horrible).

    I've tested this every way to Sunday. There is something that GF doesn't trigger that is triggered using the default WP login or just setting up a user via the Dashboard, both of these ways will trigger TML's email templates to send instead of the ugly defaults WP has. When a user is created by GF User Registration the fall back WP emails show up, thus something is different with the GF user reg process.

    Question, when a user is created by GF User Registration is there something different on the account creation which would cause it to not fire email templates which are firing using any other registration process.

    There is likely a function I need to call on the form which triggers the same effects that TML or normal user reg does.

  6. I'm just going to add an other request for this. It is imperative that Gravity Forms allow for a custom e-mail. I too am using Theme My Login and tried to set the new user e-mail through that plugin, but it does not work when used with GF.

    I do not feel that this is something that should be considered an upgrade request. This is basic functionality that needs to be included.

  7. I found a work around for this...
    I created a simple plugin as defined in this post:

    Then I updated the default e-mail type from text to html as defined in this post:

    Registering a user through GF now uses my function instead of the default one. I still think either GF or TML needs to change so that they work better together in this regard, but at least my e-mail is sending out the correct information now.

  8. This function did help, but now TML only sends the welcome message and not the activation. Have a post on TML for insight to this...getting closer.

    function disable_gf_user_registered( $user_id, $config, $entry, $user_pass ){
      do_action( 'tml_new_user_registered', $user_id, $user_pass );
    add_action( 'gform_user_registered', 'disable_gf_user_registered', 10, 4 );

    You could target a specific GF form, however I am using just one so it didn't matter...may haunt me later though :)
