WordPress MU plugin: personal welcome

Personal welcome is a WordPress MU plugin that lists newly registered users, and allows site administrators to send them a personalised welcome message. The welcome messages are based on templates which you can write yourself (as many templates as you like). Once a message is sent that user won’t appear again.

There are two extra management features:

  • The ability to set all users as having been sent a welcome message (an easy way to bulk remove everyone from the list, for example when the plugin is first installed)
  • The ability to search for a user and send them a welcome message

Of course, the templates don’t have to be just for welcoming people – they could contain FAQs, help information or anything else.

The plugin also makes use of the __() function to allow for easy translation.


Just put the plugin in /wp-content/mu-plugins/, no configuration necessary.

You can download the plugin from my page in the official WordPress plugin repository.
