    Default Hack Offering: Put order number in email notification Subject: line

    The proprietor of my OSC-based store asked that the order number be included in the "Order Process" notification emails, to assist in his organization and tracking.

    All I needed was a quick hack to catalog/checkout_process.php. I offer it here. The code is added starting around line 338. My comments are preceded with "BL":

    ( code code code ... )

    PHP Code:
    if ($payment_class->email_footer) {
          
    $email_order .= $payment_class->email_footer "nn";
        }
      }

    // BL: Added this line
            
    $email_subject EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT " #" $insert_id;

    // BL: Changed EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT to $email_subject
      
    tep_mail($order->customer['firstname'] . ' ' $order->customer['lastname'], $order->customer['email_address'], $email_subject$email_orderSTORE_OWNERSTORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS);

    // send emails to other people

    // BL: Changed EMAIL_TEXT_SUBJECT to $email_subject

      
    if (SEND_EXTRA_ORDER_EMAILS_TO != '') {
        
    tep_mail(''SEND_EXTRA_ORDER_EMAILS_TO$email_subject$email_orderSTORE_OWNERSTORE_OWNER_EMAIL_ADDRESS);
      } 
    (code code code ...)

    Now instead of "Order Process" the subject line reads "Order Process #N" where N is the number of your new order.

    If you are using the PayPal IPN module, a similar hack must be applied since that module effectively replaces checkout_process.

    For IPN v1.3 it's in includes/modules/payment/paypal_ipn.php, the context is nearly identical except the order number is stored in $order_id.

    2.2M2, again similar context, but the file is ext/modules/payment/paypal_ipn/ipn.php and the order number is in $_POST['invoice'].

    Can't say what the case is for other versions as I have not tried them.

    Hello Brendanl79,
    Thank you for this very nice post.
    I'm having difficulties though with getting this to work with Paypal IPN 2.3.3
    Could you show me what the exact code is that I need to add/edit?

    Would be very thankful if that's possible.
