WooCommerce does not send emails, what do I do? • WordPress Help

The first thing you must understand is that if WooCommerce is not sending the order confirmation emails, etc. to your clients or to yourself surely this does not happen only with your online store, it is very possible that WordPress is not sending emails at all .

However there are specific configurations and specificities of WooCommerce by which may be that WordPress itself sends emails in general (new comments, new users, updates, etc.) and WooCommerce does not .

So let's see the possible problems and their solutions.

Orders not have been completed

It is quite common, more than you imagine, that the problem simply, especially in virtual products, that the payment gateway does not automatically process orders and because of this, As there is no effective order, WordPress / WooCommerce does not send any email because, simply, there is no complete order to inform, neither to you nor to your client.

This happens normally with payments to me. by Paypal and Bank Transfer which by default require manual confirmation on your part that the payments have been processed and completed for the order to be effective.

For that you must check first if the status of the orders is Waiting or Processing in which case the emails of shift will not be sent.

If you have questions about the WooCommerce ordering statuses here is the explanation of all possible WooCommerce order statuses .

How to fix it with bank transfers

If so, in In the case of bank transfer you have no other option than, when you see that you have received the payment in your account, mark the order as completed . and then you should send the emails of the order, both to the buyer and the seller.

How to fix it in the virtual payment gateways such as Paypal

If the cause is another virtual payment gateway, like PayPal, you can do the same as in the case of transfers, manual checking, or if you prefer – and you have it clear – force the completion of virtual orders with the codes and plugins that I published and can download here .

Automatically complete the orders in WooCommerce

Problem with the email address in the settings

It also happens a lot, but a lot, that WooCommerce does not send emails because you are using the default address of WordPress instead of your own.

To make sure that this is not the problem, or to fix it if it is, go for WooCommerce -> Ajust es -> Correos electr or nicos and check if the shipping address is wordpress@tudominio.es and change it to another address of yours or a GMail email.

If you use a GMail address, remember to set up your Google account to allow access to less secure applications as in the following capture.

Problems with the mail server

And, finally, the other possible culprit is very likely that the server is not allowing the use of PHP ( ]) mail which is the one used by the function WP_mail () from WordPress.

In this case the solution is not to use that function, directly , and use instead an SMTP server for example from a GMail account of yours, or one created only for these purposes. [19659003] And to do it nothing better than the WP-Mail SMTP plugin, very easy to configure as we saw in the following article …

How to know what emails WordPress sends

Your installation of WordPress sends many emails sometimes too many, think again. Every time there is a new user, or an automatic update, in each comment pending approval or when it has already been approved … and some more.

The problem is that if you are a web administrator and you want to take a control of which and how many emails have been sent and the reasons there is no way to know, because there is no record of the emails sent this information is not stored in any table.

this has easy solution, you just have to install the plugin Email log . Once active you will have a new screen in which view, edit or delete the records of the emails sent as if it were a type of personalized content.

All this information will be saved from this moment in a new table in your database, leaving all the information recorded and stored.

It is clear that is not a plugin for all but it can satisfy specialized uses of WordPress .

How to improve WordPress emails?

For some time the WordPress Personalizer has been talking on the forums and websites since as Fernando explained well in this post there are many conflicting opinions, especially since the inclusion of the menus in it was approved.

I, as a plugin developer, had never used it for any and only knew it as a simple end user. Sometimes I found it useful and others just too loaded with options so I did not have an opinion for or against it and just preferred not to enter into debate.

If you are wondering what this has to do with WordPress emails, worry that we will get there, I just want to explain where everything is born.

In the last WordCamp that was made in my country, one of the speakers gave some advice on how to use the Customizer in plugins and I call so much my attention that I keep thinking about it.

A few days later, making a site for a client who needed to improve the design of the emails to send, I realized that the the only viable option was to use WP Better emails but I did not quite convince myself, so I decided to create my own plugin for edit an HTML template using the Customizer.

That's right co mo plugin was born Email Templates a simple plugin that you allows to use an HTML template to send emails instead of the boring text format that comes by default with WordPress.

 emails-templates "width =" 838 "height =" 366 "srcset =" http://bootstrapx.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/emails-templates-840x367.png 840w, https: / /ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/emails-templates-550x240.png 550w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/emails-templates.png 1252w "sizes = "(max-width: 838px) 100vw, 838px" /> </p>
<p> The plugin is very simple and you <strong> can change various aspects of the template </strong>such as colors, add a logo or text in the header and a little more text on <em> footer </em>. </p>
<p> It also includes a series of <em> placeholders </em> to use both in the template and in the content of the emails. And finally a button that allows you to send a test email to check that everything was as it should be. </p>
<p> Email Templates <strong> requires version 4.0 </strong> of WordPress because it uses some functions that were introduced in that version </p>
<p> If someone wants to help you can do it through <a href= GitHub or also help translate it .

Personally I think the Customizer is great, the API for using it is very simple and for an end user the experience can not be better since it sees all the changes instantaneously. Now it's just a matter of users getting used to it and the developers to implement it.

Do not do it! but … this is how emails are exported from comments • WordPress Help

 image of arroba with padlock

This is one of those tricks that one doubts before sharing, because has more danger than one pump case but as the responsibility is yours, and there are situations where you may need something like that, for ethical reasons of course, for me not to be left.

And, I repeat, do not do it ! and if you use it before it notifies your visitors that your emails will be archived, otherwise you will be not complying with a basic data protection okay?

Ea, well, come on to it, because the explanation and danger is longer than to get it.

You just have to install the plugin Export emails . Once you have it active you go through the new menu located in "Tools -> Export emails."

There you will see two boxes, well, without anesthesia. In the first are all emails of registered users in your WordPress, extracted from the user table of your database, and in the second the emails of all visitors who have ever commented , in this case extracted from the table comments also from the database.

 export-emails "width =" 520 "height =" 348 "class =" alignnone size-full wp-image-76359 "srcset =" http://bootstrapx.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/export-emails.png 520w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/ 09 / export-emails-500x334.png 500w "sizes =" (max-width: 520px) 100vw, 520px "/> </p>
<p> That's it, now what you do with those lists, which you can copy and paste where you want ( flat text, spreadsheet, etc.), it's up to you, you know, <a href= a great power carries a great responsibility

The fault of telling you this has it WPBeginner

Publish by email (revisited) in WordPress 3.7

<p><strong><a title= Publishing by email in WordPress is something really awkward , useless and not recommended at least with the default tools, that is why in the development of WordPress 3.7 a method is being developed that improves the system currently incorporated.

Today , in fact, version 1.0 of the development plugin has been released (lately many new features are being advanced as well, by means of plugins that are later incorporated into the WordPress kernel), which intends to improve several integers the system a ctual and, of course, replace it .

It is not a plugin that is still ready to put it on your WordPress and use it regularly, but if you can try it and, above all, ] warning of failures you detect to improve it for the final version of WordPress 3.7 .

If you install it, which I have done, it will disappoint you a bit in a first moment, basically because you are going to see that, in principle, and if we stick to the settings page, little or nothing new is seen.

Only two new boxes have been added, one so that they always use a secure connection (SSL) and another for delete email messages once published as entries . In addition to that the only other novelty that you will see is a list of messages . The rest of the settings are just as unfriendly and ridiculous as always.

 plugin post by email wordpress 3.7

But the changes are in the possibilities incorporated in at the time of use if they are really important:

  • Support for IMAP (formerly only POP3) and SSL
  • Mark as read
  • Attachments
  • HTML support (most important)

Little more at the moment, if you dare to try it there you have it, but do not get excited, that even if you see that version 1.0 is actually still a ßeta . ] There are other ways of doing this, but that another day.

How to hide emails from spammers in WordPress • WordPress Help

I do not know if it happened to you, but to me yes. One day you receive an email from a visitor to your website that tells you that since leaving a comment on your website you are only receiving spam and, most surprising of all, that you are going to sue you as not stop receiving spam! . The fat thing is that sometimes it was the same who had left his email in a comment in the style of …

KoM0 haze xto ???
my email is hoyganpedorro @ algarrobicoadabajo .es

Yes, it happens, it's weird, to give a capon to the uncle for cenutrio but to pass.

But hey, if you want to get rid of this kind of inconvenience, and do not what for boarders like the one of the imaginary example, since the spammers scan code of the webs and also they will find emails not so obvious as the one of above, it can be made very easy, hiding the email addresses .

To get it I found a very majete trick in wprecipes which is about adding this code to your plugin functions :

What does the " coso " this is search for any character string of the type " loquesea@loquesea.algo " and conceals it whether it's in the content or – very interesting – in the text of widgets.

So you already know how to get rid of that plague of spammers who are hunting for email addresses .

JetPack as a substitute for Feedburner for email subscriptions • WordPress Help

Feedburner is a very effective feed subscriptions manager and most of all is almost the only decent subscribe for email subscriptions but lately it seems that Google has it quite abandoned . If some time ago he had included the possibility of sending new publications to your favorite social profiles, not many months later he eliminated this functionality practically without warning and betrayal.

And this is just an example.

So why not look for a substitute for email subscriptions ?, it's more and why not look at a plugin that many of us already have installed? . Yes, I'm talking about JetPack which curiously has an email subscription system that also works great.

But you'll ask is it a good option or a substitute for Feedburner? surprisingly yes, and it improves in some aspects.

For example, its greatest virtue is that new publications are not sent once a day but are automatically issued thereby in less than half an hour your subscribers have in their email your new article .

Another advantage is that, when most email subscription plugins (there are and many) use the function ] wp_mail from WordPress, the email subscription system of JetPack sends the updates directly to the servers and from the servers of WordPress.com, which is responsible for distributing them .

There are more, and that is that your subscribers can manage his " readings " of WordPress.com and subscriptions to webs with this JetPack system in a single site, in his WordPress.com reader, and choose to send the publications.

Additionally, to You, you can follow the activity of subscriptions in the JetPack statistics system .

I think there are enough reasons, and more than Feedburner offers. Do you dare ?, Well let's see how to activate them …

1. Activate the JetPack subscription system

The first thing is to go to the JetPack screen (which you have to install before, of course) and activate the subscription system if you have not already done so.

2. Set up subscriptions

The next thing is to configure some subscription settings. For this you have a button just activate the subscriptions, but you will also find them manually in "Settings -> Comments" of the WordPress Desktop.

In both cases you get to these 2 adjustments, to decide if you offer a full subscription under the comments form of each entry or alone, or also to each new comment, which also serves as a subscriptions system to new comments, double function.

And what you will see on your site will look something like this:

3. Offer the subscription by email

In addition to the box we have seen before, like Feedburner, we have a form to facilitate the subscription by email anywhere on our site, in this case in the form of a widget, and very easy to configure.

In "Appearance -> Widgets" of your Desktop you will find the new subscription widget to be able to add it where you want from your sidebar …

From which you can configure As you like the messages that your visitors will see, to decide how to encourage them to subscribe, something like this could be …

If you want to personalize, and you're not afraid to touch code, you can tune to your liking the form following these indications .

4. Managing your subscriptions

Finally, in the JetPack statistics screen, you will find a message with the number of "followers" (this is only for you) at the left, which are the subscribers to your site.

If you click on the link of the " followers " you will see a full list of your subscribers, with their emails and the time since they subscribed, that for obvious reasons of respect for privacy I will not reproduce.

The emails they will receive are in HTML so they are fully operational for what a subscriber by email it must be offered, not like some subscription plugins by email, that send text-mode publications.

Also, as with Feedburner, your subscribers will receive a previous email to confirm the subscription, like so they can always manage their their scripts and cancel them so respect for the decisions of your subscribers is also total.

Something that is also great is that this system you have both WordPress.com and your WordPress hosted on your server.

As you can see, it is a complete system, if you hurry me more than Feedburner, which only offers a code to use in a widget and customize a bit, and the list of subscribers. The only thing that Feedburner gives you is a system for to export that list as an Excel or CSV file to customize the source and logo in the email and nothing else.

What nobody offers you, and that is the biggest handicap when deciding on one system or another, and for which sometimes it costs to be encouraged to change it is a system of "exporting import" subscribers, but it is not so serious, some will continue to receive their subscription by Feedburner, if you already had it, and the rest will do it from your JetPack, as simple as that.

Subscriptions by email without feedburner • WordPress Help

If you have a blog on WordPress.com you do not need to use services like Feedburner or similar to offer your readers the email subscription to your content .

Since yesterday already you can use the Subscriptions widget to the blog and, in this way, offer a simple system to receive in your email what you post.

In addition, the system identifies if the user is registered in ] WordPress.com so if you are, you just have to click to subscribe, and if not, you are asked to enter the email.

Then, you can manage your subscriptions (if you are a WordPress.com user) in a simple way on the page to the effect in your profile. A joy that I do not know if it can be implemented in a blog hosted by any plugin, which would not be bad.

Comments WhitList and Change Status • WordPress Help

Today I wake up with the notice of Fernando Serer that have published two WordPress plugins that improve the management of comments in WordPress . Based on their experience with Pequelia, the social network for fathers and mothers, they have created these plugins.

WordPress already has a field to make a blacklist of spam comments, and you can define that a comment must have been published to make it approve the rest, or that users are registered, or even have to moderate all.

Comment Whitelist allows you to create a white list of commentators who will not be restricted by WordPress settings. Once activated and created your "white list", the plugin reviews the e-mails of the commentators and if they are on the whitelist you approve them directly.

You already know that when there is a comment pending to approve WordPress it sends you an email with the Relevant links to approve it, mark it as spam or delete it. The bad thing is that all these links refer you to the comments management panel, to your site.

What Change Status does is offer you direct links to moderate comments, but without visiting your site, managing them directly from these links. Great!
