Disable Joomla email notification

8 years 2 months ago #181280 by AlexRag
I guess the problem is not needing to send out 2 emails that contain the same information - too confusing for the new user.

How do add the password in the CSV file? Do I make them up for each user and convert it to a hash code? If so , how do I do that? Or does CBJUICE encode the password in the CSV file?

Thanks.

CBJuice2 will hash the password for you.

In 1.7, administrator/language/en-.GB/en-GB.plg_user_joomla.ini is the file to edit if you want to change the welcome email

Just a few notes about sending the password out on CBJ2 ADD or EDIT:
In Options, CBJuice welcome message (Mail Body) must be modified to include password ... e.g.

new user details for the web site [SITEURL]
email: username:[USERNAME] password: [CBJPASSWORD][/quote] If plain-text password field is included in the CSV file, it will be hashed into the database, and the plain-text password will go into the welcome message to the new user if 'Check this box to send a confirmation email to the user.' is checked.[EMAIL]
username:[USERNAME]
password: [CBJPASSWORD]


If plain-text password field is included in the CSV file, it will be hashed into the database, and the plain-text password will go into the welcome message to the new user if 'Check this box to send a confirmation email to the user.' is checked.

I see now where I may have gone wrong during my testing. I was not using the correct field type [CBJPASSWORD] to send out the password. When i send out emails it was sending blank passwords.

So the combination of editing the joomla welcome email and CBJuice makes it a perfect toolset for importing existing users.

Plaintext passwords that work in the email are automatically generated by the ADD code if no password field is supplied. DO NOT SUPPLY THE PASSWORD IN THE HEADER.

Important note re password field...

In order for the password to be sent to the new user by CBJuice2, you either leave out the password column entirely and a random password will be generated and sent, OR you have the password column with passwords filled in. IF the password column is there but the password is blank, password will not be included in the email to user.
