WordPress Version: WordPress 3.2.1

Settings -> General http://www.example.org/wp-admin/options-general.php

I would like to have multiple email address in the Email Address textbox.

I tried abc@abc.com, xyz@xyz.com, after I save it. It become abc@abc.comxyz@xyz.com

How can I allow multiple email on that field?

We need this function because we have multiple admin in the website.

Add you other admins as separate users and give them admin permissions? In WordPress each user has one primary email address. –  Hameedullah Khan Jan 1 '12 at 7:59
As far as i know its not possible and there are a few tickets open on the track for this issue –  Bainternet Jan 1 '12 at 13:08
Other Admin did not get any notification, only the email address entered in the General Settings is received. –  Shiro Jan 1 '12 at 16:25
@Bainternet May I know where is the ticket, I can go there vote for it. –  Shiro Jan 1 '12 at 16:26
@Shiro i think its core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/10726 –  Bainternet Jan 1 '12 at 16:35

Apparently it needs to be formatted like so:

you need a space before and after the ";" so the field should look like:

abc@hotmail.com ; example@yahoo.co.uk


It didn't seem to work on the old install I tried it on though.

You could try using SB Welcome Email Editor. One of its features is that it allows multiple recipients to be set up for admin notifications.

It's not really a WP-specific solution, but if you set up a Gmail address (and likely others), you could create a filter to automatically forward notifications generated by WordPress to other admins.

Short of WordPress adding multi-email notifications, that might be the quickest way to solve the problem.
