  • Customizing Welcome Mail

    Dear vBulletin Community,

    Recently, Ive been wondering if the Welcomes mail can be customized (perhaps in HTML)? Right now, it shows text only, but it would be amazing if this could be changed to a background, colors, images and more! An example can be found below;

    Anyone has an idea about if such is possible?

      Not sure if I fully understand you.
      All I see is a ? mark on my android device and it is unclickable. Ho ho.

      I will check it again with a more competent machine.

      It is all about competence tonight.

        The welcome email can be customized by going to the Admin CP -> Languages & Phrases -> Phrase Manager... Choose Email Body phrases from the drop down menu and find the phrase - welcomemail_ gemailbody . (Usually you would just go to the 5th page but a bug stops that right now, so instead set it to display 150 phrases per page instead of 15, and it's near the bottom)

        Now you can provide a "translation" for the phrase. A translation overrides the original phrase, you can edit it however you want I do not believe HTML will work but you can try and test yourself. It is meant for plain text emails.
