I want to change the e-mail that the customer gets when registering.

Atm. it is just a plain and simple e-mail telling him/her that the registration went successful.

I want to add the e-mail address the customer used for registering plus the password he/she used.

This so my customer can keep this e-mail for future reference.

Anyone out there that already created this and would like to share that code? :)

Update to, don't use the zip posted above.

Open catalog > model > account > customer.php

Code: Select all

$message .= $this->language->get('text_services') . "\n\n";
Add after

Code: Select all

$message .= $this->language->get('text_save') . "\n\n";			
		$message .= $this->language->get('text_email') . ' ' . $this->request->post['email'] . "\n";
		$message .= $this->language->get('text_password') . ' ' . $this->request->post['password'] . "\n\n";
Open catalog > language > english > mail > customer.php
Add before the final ?>

Code: Select all

// e-mail loginname and password
$_['text_save']     = 'Please save this email for future refference.';
$_['text_email']    = 'Email address / Loginname:';
$_['text_password'] = 'Your Password:';
Thanks to i2Paq for the mod

Make sure your customer base wants this "convenience" before you provide it.

Personally, I never want my password, which I am quite capable of remembering, sent to me in plain text in an ordinary email. This is an immense violation of my privacy. I will not do business with any e-commerce site that retains my password in unencrypted form, much less broadcasts it in unencrypted form.

Remember that email services such as gmail boast that they are giving you free email service because they actively read all of the mail that you send and receive so that they can more efficiently SPAM you.

Do you as a store owner want the liability of your customers' unencrypted passwords being disclosed accidentally or intentionally in this manner? I don't think any of us wants to go through what Sony is going through now.

OpenCart has a perfectly fine password reset tool that solves this "problem" without any privacy exposure.
