URSP Validation Email: Not a clickable link?

URSP Validation Email: Not a clickable link?

Guys:

In the file "verification.php", within the Email_Templates folder of the WA_Universal_Email folder, there is this code -

<p>Please click the link below in order to verify this email address:</p>
<p>
<?php echo($WAGLOBAL_Root_URL); ?>users_Confirm.php?ID=<?php echo($row_WAATKusers['UserID']); ?>&code=<?php echo($row_WAATKusers['UserVerificationCode']); ?>
</p>

However, THAT'S NOT A LINK! At least it's not in some browsers. Shouldn't it be this?

<p>Please click the link below in order to verify this email address:</p>
<p><a href="
<?php echo($WAGLOBAL_Root_URL); ?>users_Confirm.php?ID=<?php echo($row_WAATKusers['UserID']); ?>&code=<?php echo($row_WAATKusers['UserVerificationCode']); ?>">VERIFY EMAIL</a>
</p>

No, the email is created as a text email email to avoid being caught as spam in the clients spam filters.

using HTML based emails greatly increases the possibility of the email being considered junk or spam.


you can certainly change it to an HTML clickable link if you like, but be aware of the possible consequences if you do.

Ahh - good point. In that case, the text in the message should say to COPY the URL shown below into your browser, rather than to click on the link, shouldn't it? If it's a text message, there is no opportunity to click on such text URLs (in general, at least).

While I have your attention though, I should only have to make these edits to the validation.php file that I mentioned above, right? For some reason, I'm not seeing these changes take effect.

the template used depends on the page you are triggering the email from.


the verification template is used if you log into the profile page and click the verify button.


the registration template is used when the user registers.
