Joomla Custom Registration Messages


Joomla Custom Registration Messages

Joomla is often used as a portal for which users can sign up and login. Once they login, they can use the site as you desire. Meanwhile, when a new user does register, they often receive a registration confirmation message via email. The message is rather standard. However, you can always change and customize many Joomla user messages within a file called en-GB.com_user.ini. The file is located in the path language/en-GB/en-GB.com_user.ini. Below is an example of how messages can be changed.

SEND_MSG=Hello %s,\n\nThank you for registering at %s.\n\nYou may now log in with the username and password you registered with.
SEND_MSG_ACTIVATE=Hello %s,\n\nThank you for registering at %s. Your account is created and must be activated before you can use it.\nTo activate the account click on the following link or copy-paste it in your browser:\n%s\n\nAfter activation you may login to %s using the following username and password:\n\nUsername: %s\nPassword: %s
SEND_MSG_ADMIN=Hello %s,\n\nA new user has registered at %s.\nThis e-mail contains their details:\n\nName: %s\nE-mail: %s\nUsername: %s\n\nPlease do not respond to this message. It is automatically generated and is for information purposes only.

Note:
You could add a url and a link for them to login. Below shows how the code was modified:

SEND_MSG=Hello %s,\n\nThank you for registering at %s.\n\nYou may now log in to http://www.example/mysubdirectory/filename using the username and password you registered with.
