[SOLVED] How to configure CB Payments to forward new users to complete a CB profile?

Password is not included in emails nor will the substitution output anything unless you're using randomly generated passwords since that'd be the only way to get their password to them. Do not attempt to include passwords in any emails when they are user supplied.

Thanks, Krileon, I figured that might be the case.
A few quick questions:
1. If I let the system assign a password, would that allow the [PASSWORD] tag to work?

2. I am not seeing the usual Joomla email being sent as a result of a new user being added. Is that a setting in CB or Joomla that causes it not to be sent?

3. If all else fails, do you have a suggestion for how we can get the login password to the user or will they have to make sure to copy the password and their login name when registering?

Thanks for the help!

Yes.

2. I am not seeing the usual Joomla email being sent as a result of a new user being added. Is that a setting in CB or Joomla that causes it not to be sent?

That is normal. CB handles the entire registration email process.

3. If all else fails, do you have a suggestion for how we can get the login password to the user or will they have to make sure to copy the password and their login name when registering?

You don't unless using randomly generated passwords (parameter in CB > Configuration > Registration). If passwords are user supplied do not attempt to in any way email it to them; that is a massive security vulnerability. Randomly generated passwords are also meant to be temporary and they should be changing them after login. I do not even recommend using randomly generated passwords, but we provide the feature for intranet solutions (internal sites). Let users deal with their own passwords. Every browser in existence has password management now and worst case they use forgot login to generate a temporary password.

Hi Krileon,
Almost there, the plans look terrific, and all we're inches from goal... but I am having a couple of puzzling issues I'm hoping you can help me resolve.
First is the system-generated password that is returned on registration is 61 characters long. The PW settings in Joomla are 14 characters and, when you use the "Lost Password" reset, the system returns a 14 character password. How can the registration PW returned be limited to 14 characters?

Also, I am unable to use the returned password/login name to sign on. I get a message "Error Incorrect email or password. Please try again." I am sure I am not including spaces, etc. Also, if I use the password reset, the system finds the login user name and returns a new password that works.

The login I am sending new users to the first time is www.ezenewsletters.com/newsletterz/ (login is in the fly-out menu - hamburger icon) and is the CBSubs login module.

I'm sure I'm doing something incorrectly here but cannot figure out what it is.

So you can duplicate what I'm seeing, go to www.ezenewsletters.com/newsletterz/

I have included the text of the email that the system returned on successful registration so you'll see what I'm seeing.

That's the encrypted password. A system generated password should only be 12 characters long. What email are you trying to send it in? It should only be in the Pending email and as part of the [details] substitution.
