Okay, either I'm blind, stupid or a bit of both, but where can I modify the standard text of emails being sent out (registration, order confirmation etc.)?..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..

That email is formatted on lines 222 through 258 of checkout_process.php. "How" you customize it depends on what it is you want to add, remove, or rearrange in the formatting of the email. Can you be more specific about that?..

Hi Mary,.

Thanks. Now I have the overview I need..

In /catalog/checkout_process.php we have the PHP file that govern the ORDER CONFIRMATION EMAIL and in /catalog/includes/languages/english/checkout_process.php we have the text used in the email defined. I have added and changed the DEFINED section in the latter file and updated the first one to also display any new text like a "thank you for your order....bla, bla"..

I then made sure that the copy of the iPage site stored in the https section was updated too - and now it is working. Hope the above can save somebody the many hours I spent to figure this out..

Otherwise great system only wish that e-mails was placed in templates so one did not have to program to change a bit of text...

Comment #5

Thanks ozcsys but that is not the answer. I am looking to add information to the Orders email and those document on the order emails is completely useless. Look at it it has no information..

Does someone have any idea how to add additional text to the Order email. The email that gets sent as soon as check out is complete?.

This is holding up my whole store at the moment..

Thanks!..

Comment #7

I got it. I think I will put together a simple Contrib on this. It's really rather simple..

Just add a new define then add the define in the email file. Simple...

Comment #9

I saw your reply Jonnymke and did check as I need and answer too to this question..

But the thing is that you only answer "for new accounts" and it is still a mystery where one customize e-mails sent out when an order is made..

Anybody who know a bit more about this system and in details know how and where one can customize the "ORDER" e-mail sent out automatically when an order is placed?.

Thnaks...
