BuddyPress Update Email Reminder Lightbox


BuddyPress Update Email Reminder Lightbox asks users to confirm their email address if they haven’t logged in for a while.

For example, a user who hasn’t logged into her BuddyPress community in the last 100 days, will receive a lightbox alert asking her to verify that her email address is still correct.

You’ve seen similar functionality on Facebook, gmail, LinkedIn, etc.

This is a community management tool that helps your users to keep their profiles up-to-date.


  1. In your WordPress dashboard, go to “Settings”->”BuddyPress Update Email Reminder Lightbox Settings”
  2. Set the number of days you want to use for your reminder interval.
  3. Choose your styles for the lightbox.

How do I update the look of the lightbox alert?

To change the look of your pull quotes, you can either use the build-in editor under “Settings”->”BuddyPress Update Email Reminder Lightbox Settings” in your WordPress dashboard, OR update your theme’s css file.
