  • Changing the email_validation text....

    Hello all.

    Since last week I have been using Moderation on the new accounts.

    However, I wanted the "validation" text to include more things.
    So I edited the "email_validated" template and added some things and now it looks like this :

    Dear $username,

    We have now activated your account at the $bbtitle. The forums can be found here:

    and if you want, introduce yourself to the rest of the members, here :

    $bbtitle team

    The bold text is what I've added.

    Is this the right template I had to edit? Because even though I changed it, everytime I validate a new user, the box with the validation text does not include the things I added

    thanx in advance

      Thanx for the reply Wayne, but

      what you suggested is exactly what I have done with no result.

      When a I go to validate a new reg the old text (without my add ons) shows up.

      And I do not understand why.

        That is definitely the correct template. Make sure you change it in the template set used by the default style (the one without the 'remove' link.)

          Thanx Steve!
          The initial default style was an old one I'm not using now so I forgot to edit it.
