WPLMS Email Migration to BuddyPress Emails

From WPLMS version 2.2 and above. You now get the option to migrate all the WPLMS Emails to BuddyPress emails or BP Emails.

BuddyPress introduced Emails in version 2.5, so make sure your current BuddyPress version is 2.5 or more.  The BP Emails has a live template customizer in WP Admin – Emails – Customize section and all the email content send in the BP Emails can be easily customised.

How to Migrate and ACtivate BP Emails :

  1. Click on Migrate Emails notice.
  2. Disable HTML emails in WP Admin – LMS – Settings – Emails section.

Although we recommend everyone to migrate their emails, the migration is reversible and controlled by the Disable HTML emails switch (point 2).

Also note that BP Emails uses an inbuilt (BuddyPress) PHP Mailer system whereas WPLMS Emails used the WP_EMAIL functionality. So make sure if you’re using a third party plugin for emails then make sure BP emails are working after unchecking the HTML emails switch in point 2, after the update.

    Hi Mr Vibe,
    So just to sure i understood. Every “wplms” emails like activation, forgot password, touch points etc still use the WPLMS Templates but are not allowed to use HTML ?
    And the rest are using Buddypress template ?

    Is that correct ?

    Thks for your feedback,


    1. When you migrate and disable the wplms HTML emails switch every mail with use the Buddypress mailing system which is also HTML.

    I accidentally closed the migration notice, how can I migrate my emails now ?


    1. The notification would appear again in our n ft update when we add new mail in the system. Strongly recommend to migrate emails even if you’re not using them. In all our new installations this is automatic.
