If you are changing the standard email message that a user receives after the Administrator adds them via the function Site -> User Manager -> New, then edit the en-GB.com_users.ini file at:


Then look for the ini value NEW_USER_MESSAGE and replace it with your own.

NEW_USER_MESSAGE=Hello %s,\n\n\nYou have been added as a User to %s by an Administrator.\n\nThis e-
mail contains your username and password to log in to %s\n\nUsername: %s\nPassword: %s\n\n\nPlease
do not respond to this message as it is automatically generated and is for information purposes only.

Note that there are 5 string values that get replaced with %s. The order and value of these are provided below for convenience:

  1. Name of User
  2. Site Name
  3. Login URL
  4. Username
  5. Password

If you want to change the standard email users receive after registering themselves instead of the Administrator registering them, then edit the en-GB.com_user.ini file at:


Look for the ini value for SEND_MSG and use your own.

SEND_MSG=Hello %s,\n\nThank you for registering at %s.\n\nYou may now log in to %s using the
username and password you registered with.
