    Question changing FROM name in contact emails

    How can I specify the name that appears in the email inbox of the ad poster, when they receive a "contact the ad poster" email from a user?

    I want it to be the name of my business (i.e. "Joe's Classified Site"), but it is by default the name of the blog ("San Francisco").

    Context: I am using WordPress Multisite, where each sub-site has a different blog title that is the name of the city; but I want emails from all sub-sites to have a common FROM name.

    You can change that from WP->settings->general->Site Title.

    Hi Dimitris,

    I don't want to change the site title. I want each of my sub-sites to have a unique site title. I want to change the FROM name, so "contact ad poster" emails generated on any sub-site all use a common FROM name.

    Even just knowing the name of the function or file I'd have to modify would be helpful for me.

    I don't think there is built in option for that, you will have to use a third party plugin, or modify the code.I am moving the thread to WordPress General discussion forum.

    I also don't think there is a built-in option for it. I am prepared to modify the code (preferably in my child theme, but also in the parent theme (CP) if needed). Just looking for some guidance on what function or file to modify, from someone more familiar with the code. I can grep, but don't want to overlook something.

    Question

    Is
    PHP Code:
    includes/theme-emails.php 
    the only file I would need to change in order to accomplish it?

    Just to clarify (since this thread got moved), I am using ClassiPress.

    Eric,

    This is a modification request and AppThemes is not officially supporting modifications.It's also a relevant/general WP question that's why i moved your question to this forum.

    Thanks for explaining why you moved it.
    I understand AppThemes doesn't support modifications. I am hoping a user will see this and help me. Also, I would prefer those fields be customizable from the GUI in a future CP version.
