    Hi, somebody posted this snippet back in 2016 where it sends a automaticly message to new users.

    In the ‘date_sent’ it sends the message instant on registration – How can i edit this code so the messages gets sendt 5 minutes after registration?

    //Welcome PM //

    function send_message_to_new_member( $user_id) {

    if ( ! bp_is_active( ‘messages’ ) )

    $args = array(
    ‘sender_id’ => 9,
    ‘thread_id’ => false,
    ‘recipients’ => $user_id,
    ‘subject’ => ‘Hei! :)’,
    ‘content’ => ‘Hei, hvor holder du til?’,
    ‘date_sent’ => bp_core_current_time()

    $result = messages_new_message( $args );
    add_action( ‘bp_core_activated_user’, ‘send_message_to_new_member’, 1 );
    //End Welcome PM//

    Welcome to BuddyDev.

    Thank you for the question. It’s an interesting question.

    In order to achieve the delayed message, we need to maintain a queue of message and replay it after 5 mins of registration.

    WordPress does not offer native queue ability, so we will need to manage a custom queue and use the cron functionality of WordPress to achieve it.

    To be honest, It changes from couple of lines to a bit more.

    I am asking one my colleagues to put the code as a simple one page plugin for you. we will link you to the plugin in next couple of days.

    PS:- I and my team sincerely appreciate your feeling. Thank you for joining BuddyDev. We will appreciate if you change the display name as it may confuse people.

    Thank you
