LifeType Notification system

LifeType Notification system

Postby Tasha on Wed Nov 29, 2006 9:18 pm

Where can I find the default email being sent notifying me of new comments or trackbacks?
I would like to edit this.
Also I want to receive it in HTML.

Thanks in advance

If you're using LT 1.1, it's in the locale file that you're using. If you're using LT 1.0.x, you'll have to edit some code. Do a quick search in the forums for this topic, you'll find plenty of information.

Also I want to receive it in HTML.


That's not possible without customizing the code.

I looked in the locale file but it's not in there.
I searched for "LifeType Notification system". This thread is the only one I could find.
What did you want me to search for?
Thanks

That's because you made up that string.

If you search for the string that comes in the email, "automatic notification", you will see the relevant posts.

I didn't 'make it up'.
Here's the email I am referring to:

Subject: LifeType Notification system

This is pLog's automatic notification system.

There is a new comment/trackback for post "Guestbook". You can see
the new comment/trackback by following this url:

/index.php?op=ViewArticle&articleId=1272&blogId=2

Have a nice day.


Can you please tell me, where I can find THAT email?
Thank you, and, have a nice day :)

Must be this one?

/templates/misc/email_notifier.template

How would I go about emailing the body of the comment that was added?
I've tried all sorts, but I'm a bit rusty with php.

Thank you.

Did you search for the string that I told you to?

Yes.
The string returned too many results for me to find what I was looking for.
Perhaps you can point me to a particular thread?
Thanks
Tasha :)

Did you remove that 'h' in the link to test me?

Neither of those links is anything to do with what I was asking about.
They refer to the user confirmation email when a user signs up.

How would I go about emailing the body of the comment that was added?

I want to know how to change the email that is sent to me when someone places are new comment/trackback. If you can tell me how to post the body of the comment, that'd be ultra cool.

Thank you

Nope, that's a bizarre typo, since I would have cut-and-pasted it.

I missed this critical piece. Read too fast. I don't think anyone has ever asked about doing this before. I'll check it out. What version of LifeType?

Cool bananas, cause I reckon it'd be heaps cool if we could see what the comment is that is being posted without having to click on each link and go in to read all of them :)

Wait. Did you actually read the posts I linked to? They both point you to the misc/email_notifier.template, which *is* the place to edit the email for comments and trackbacks. I am confused why you think that isn't the right thing to edit?

It is probably too hard to add the comment body text without a fair bit of code modifications, which probably aren't possible for you. And I don't really have time to write and test it. I thought it would be easy, so I started working on it, but it didn't work out quickly, though I did find some extra code lying around from a previous version, so cleaned that up...

oh okay. Yeah I did go to those links. But they didn't specifically say anything about the email comment body.

I tried a few things too but it looked too hard for me to try work out so gave up too.

Thanks for having a go though.
And I think it's lifetype-1.0.3.

You definitely should upgrade to 1.0.6 for security reasons. And there isn't really much of a reason to not upgrade to 1.1.2 for bugs and features.
