[PASSWORD] not sent in emails

[PASSWORD] not sent in emails was created by moneybagsxp

[PASSWORD] - Password choosen by the User (only at the first email sent upon pressing "Register")


[PASSWORD] should be able to be included in Pending Approval Email or the Welcome Email ... however, when we enter things like:

Password: [PASSWORD], all that is output is:

Password: [PASSWORD]

(Using Joomla 1.07. and CB 1.0 Stable)

Anyone else have this issue?

Then my question to CB developer's would be why include it in the list of available options e.g.:


[NAME] - Name of the User
[USERNAME] - Username of the User
[DETAILS] - Account Details of the User such as Email Address and Username
[PASSWORD] - Password choosen by the User (only at the first email sent upon pressing "Register"):dry:
[CONFIRM] - Inserts confirmation link if the confirmation functionality is enabled
[FIELDNAME] - This will insert the value relative to the user who the email is addressed to. Just include the database field name of the field you want to include between [].

Is it (only at the first email sent upon pressing "Register") ? Doesn't it make more sense to allow inclusion:
  • Anytime a site admin WANTS it included
  • In the Welcome email? e.g. Welcome to our site, here's your details (email/user/password)
  • etc

Thank you. Yes, I thought that was the case. :blush:

The thread however is innacurate in that MD5 CAN be decrypted, err, derived anyhow :whistle:

md5.benramsey.com/ is a good place for this, but of course cannot decrypt most MD5's. Search for "MD5 Reverse Lookup" on google to find a whole skew of them.

Anyhow, back onto the topic, yes, it makes sense that it can only be sent in the first email then, as the servers with Joomla/CB installed don't quickly/readily/easily/efficiently (you name it) have the ability to obtain the password in plain view. I guess this makes more sense as to why "Forgotten Passwords" are auto-generated temps, rather than simply emailed.
