Modifying email templates

All of the email texts can be changed via fluid templates. These fluid templates are in the typo3conf/ext/adventskalender_pro/Resources/Private/Templates/Email/ directory. To change the email text, proceed as follows:

  1. Copy the templates into your theme or theme directory. This directory could also be another extension or directory in fileadmin. Assuming that the files are copied into the fileadmin/Adventskalender/Templates directory, the directory structure looks as follows:
    fileadmin
    -   Adventskalender
    -   -   Templates
    -   -   -   Email
    -   -   -   -   ConfirmEmail.html
    -   -   -   -   Participants.html
    -   -   -   -   PasswordReset.html
    -   -   -   -   Register.html
    -   -   -   -   Reminder.html
    -   -   -   -   Winners.html
  2. Then, open your advent calendar for editing and switch to the Reports tab. The field E-Mail Templatepfad defaults to EXT:adventskalender_pro/Resources/Private/Templates/Email/. Enter the new path to your email templates, e.g. fileadmin/Adventskalender/Templates/Email/.
  3. Emails sent from the advent calendar will now use email templates from the directory just set.
