How to send cryptocurrency transaction notifications via BuddyPress in the Bitcoin and Altcoin Wallets WordPress plugin.
Version 2.9.0 of Bitcoin and Altcoin Wallets introduces a new feature that was a user request. The notifications that users receive via email about their transaction status can now be sent as BuddyPress private messages.
- First go to Settings → BuddyPress → Components and enable Private Messaging.
- Then go to Wallets → Notifications. (This is the tab that was previously named E-mails.) Enable .
That’s it. Users will now be notified over private messages.
This can be useful when sending emails is not the best option. Keep in mind that this only applies to transaction notifications. Transaction verifications, if the admin requires them, are still done over email. It would not make sense to verify transactions via the same platform (WordPress) that they originate from.
Additionally, a new Glossary section is added to the documentation with this release. As the plugin grows, it is becoming apparent that some terminology is needed when talking about it.
