Hello JojoCMS Team

I can't seem to find the user account activation by email option nor the way to customize globla sent emails.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

I'm working on user account activation at the moment - getting pretty bored with all the forum spam coming our way.

Most emails have a corresponding .tpl file.To customise the email, make a copy of the .tpl in your theme and customise that.

There is also the Jojo::emailFooter() function which can also be customised via a hook (look in jojo_caore/classes/Jojo.php)

We're looking at it at the moment also, after realising that the registration form has no CAPTCHA, and if you're registered, neither does the article comments form (or the forum) - a loophole which Mr. 2.4 Quad's bots have been relentlessly exploiting over the last few months.

Removing the CAPTCHA for registered users is a "feature" rather than a bug. I think it's good to make life easier for registered users.

However the registration form definitely needs that CAPTCHA as an option that can be enabled, and optional account activation. This is what I'm working on at present. If that doesn't slow the spam down a bit then it will be time to look at akismet or some other 3rd party API-driven system I think.

Actually in my project I chose not to use the jojo_community register form ( I tried using the regular Core Plugin but it doesnt seem to work). So in my classifieds plugin Im working on a register form that uses the simple questions like how much is 3+4 to post item. I can post the code as soon as its finished

@Harvey: Can you please tell me where to look (jojo core file) to have account activation. I dont need the whole option etc.. thing. Is a lil hack possible to achieve this ( maybe have one php file that does it all and an email sent before the user info is stored in database)?

Account activation doesn't exist in Jojo yet. There's a partially complete copy on my laptop.

Have a look in the jojo_article plugin, the comments section.

When a comment is placed, an email is sent to the admin with some links in it for approving / deleting the comment. There is a unique code in the link which is saved in the database and is used for authentication.

This is a similar logic to what is needed by account activation, but you won't be able to just copy-paste the code and expect it to work.

I'm trying to have the account activation feature working next week - however I'm heading out of town on Thursday so if it doesn't happen by then it won't be until early March.
