View Full Version : How do I turn off the Welcome email?

10-05-2003, 12:29 PM
I have tried setting the following to 0 and to nothing at all. Still an email gets sent.

// Set the coupon ID that will be sent by email to a new signup, if no id is set then no email :)

How do I turn off the inital email feature?

Or if I must use it, how do I remove the following line from the welcome email:

EMAIL_GV_LINK http://www.subtl.com/shop/gv_redeem.php?gv_no=cd91f4e72a&osCsid=53c4259c162c fbed12baedc402bd3313

I have tried commenting it out in english/create_account.php

That does not work.

To turn off email completely, go to the admin and find the configuration section and select email. Then turn it off. No email will be sent.

But, I had already seen those two posts and they did not answer my question. I tried what was suggested in those emails and it did not work. That is why I posted the question. I would like to have OSC still send out emails when an order is placed and email receipts, etc.

The welcome email just contains text that I would rather not have in the welcome email and would like to change it.

Is there not a way to take out the discount langaunage in the welcome email?

Anyone know how to remove the link to gv_redeem.php in the welcome email? It appears in the welcome email like below:

or by following this link http://www.subtl.com/shop/gv_redeem.php?gv_no=1810599efb&osCsid=53c4259c162c fbed12baedc402bd3313

I comment it out in the english/create_account.php, but then I get this:

EMAIL_GV_LINKhttp://www.subtl.com/shop/gv_redeem.php?gv_no=7b44468f32&osCsid=53c4259c162c fbed12baedc402bd3313

I just want to remove any link to the website from the email. Has anyone done this? Or know how to?

Try this
define('EMAIL_TEXT', 'You can now take part in the <b>various services</b> we have to offer you. Some of these services include:' . "\n\n" . '<li><b>Permanent Cart</b> - Any products added to your online cart remain there until you remove them, or check them out.' . "\n" . '<li><b>Address Book</b> - We can now deliver your products to another address other than yours! This is perfect to send birthday gifts direct to the birthday-person themselves.' . "\n" . '<li><b>Order History</b> - View your history of purchases that you have made with us.' . "\n" . '<li><b>Products Reviews</b> - Share your opinions on products with our other customers.' . "\n\n");
define('EMAIL_CONTACT', 'For help with any of our online services, please email the store-owner: ' . STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS . '.' . "\n\n");
define('EMAIL_WARNING', '<b>Note:</b> This email address was given to us by one of our customers. If you did not signup to be a member, please send an email to ' . STORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS . '.' . "\n");
define('EMAIL_GV_REDEEM', '');
define('EMAIL_GV_LINK', '');
define('EMAIL_COUPON_REDEEM', '');

I was able to remove all mention of a voucher or coupon in the welcome email by setting the NEW_SIGNUP_GIFT_VOUCHER_AMOUNT value on line 26 to '0'

And the NEW_SIGNUP_DISCOUNT_COUPON value to '' (thats two single quotes)
