If you allow people to sign up as members of your WordPress site, retrieve or change the password, etc, then they receive the notification messages whereby the FROM fields (Name and Email) of all messages are using the defaults – which cannot be changed…
…unless you have this plugin, that is!
When your site is sending out the notifications, you ALWAYS want to be able to specify the name and the email of the sender, which is why every owner of a WordPress site needs this plugin.
As far as I know, there are 2 free solutions, one that forces you to modify the source code of the plugin to specify the sender name and email, and the other one which is cluttering the WordPress main menu – which should be preserved for items that people use all the time, not for something that you set and forget.
This plugin is better: you specify the name/email through the Settings menu, and the plugin uses the nice, modern and encapsulated class implementation.
1. Select ‘WP From Sender’ in the ‘Settings’ from the WordPress admin menu.
2. Enter the name and email to use for the “FROM” field and Save.
