Project Donation Email Response Sender Name

I just finished going live and doing a few test donations. When I received an email acknowledging my donation, the sender name showed up in the email as “WordPress.”

I would like to have it come from some other name I create, like the key word of the project site – 6058 Donate so as to be more relative and non-generic.

I can’t for the life of me find any settings anywhere that determines what this should be, unless it is some default code in the appearance editor interface.

    Hi Thomas,

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    You can change it by adding the following code in the functions.php file of your child theme.

    function res_fromname($email){
    $wpfrom = get_option('blogname'); // Change the email name here
    return $wpfrom;
    }
    add_filter('wp_mail_from', 'res_fromemail');

    Add whatever string to the variable $wpfrom in the above code that you want to display in place of “WordPress.”.

    Best Regards,

    Vinod Dalvi
