How to tweak the user activation mail.

  1. Hello,

    1. How can I change the place/link where the user routed right after he activated his account?
    e.g. at the moment it routes user to the page with username and password info, I want to change it.

    2. How can I customize the content of activation mail?

    thanks,
    Anton.

  2. I actually created a plugin for this :

  3. This is unfortunately not what I was looking for.
    The main interest is to change: gf_activation page (http://coolsite.com/?page=gf_activation&key=ce56fe7d40b61caf) the way it will route just activated account to custom page, I set.

    thanks,
    Anton.

    I used the tutorial from gravitywiz.com.

  5. @jakilevy I couldn't see in your plugin how to add the activation key/link as a template placeholder?

  6. Rather than open a new ticket, I'm going to post this as a follow-on, I don't see a fix for OP's Issue 2.

    Looks like the activation key is added to standard user notification on Line 66 of includes/signups.php:

    function is modify_signup_user_notification_message

    Any ideas for hooking in here and customising the text other than hacking the plugin? (I didn't suggest that, promise).
