Custom Sender for Email Before Download

a WordPress plugin

I created this plugin, because the Email Before Download plugin doesn’t allow the users to set up a custom sender, in case they share the downloadable resources via email.

First I started looking for a solution, because I set up a new website with EBD at the company where I’m working, but the e-mails, which are sent by the system are coming from WordPress <>, which doesn’t look too professional, especially when it’s an IT company.

Since the creator of EBD didn’t provide a solution, I started looking myself, and found it. And decided to write a small plugin for it. And here it is. 🙂

I’m sure there are possibilities for improvement, but hey, this is my first WordPress plugin.



The Custom Sender plugin is actually an addition to the Email Before Download plugin. It enables you to easily set up the sender’s name and e-mail address through a simple interface. So instead of ‘WordPress ‘ you can set up your or your company’s real name and e-mail address.

In order for this plugin to work you will need the Email Before Download plugin and it’s dependencies. Without that it will not work, and doesn’t even do anything.

Installation instructions:

  1. Download from the right side or from
  2. Unzip the file and upload the entire custom-sender-email-before-download folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress.
  4. Locate the “Custom Sender for EB” menu item in your WordPress Admin panel under “Settings” to configure.

Does the plugin work with earlier versions of WordPress than 4.0?

It should work with versions 3.x, but it wasn’t tested. If you happen to test it, a feedback is much appretiated.

If you use the plugin and it helps you, then a review and a rating will be much appreciated here.
