Inserting Dynamic Values in Email Settings of SecurityAssist Encrypted Password

Inserting Dynamic Values in Email Settings of SecurityAssist Encrypted Password

Hello,

I tried inserting dynamic value [UserFirstName] into the body of the email sent when forgotten password link is clicked on Login page, but it doesn't display the dynamic value added other than [*return_url*].

Is there any way to get the dynamic value for userFirstname displayed in the body of the email area?

Thank you.

is UserFirstName a column name in your user table?

In the Email Password behavior, you can add dynamic values to the message by clicking the plus button and select ing the column from the user table to include in the message.

if you continue to have a problem, send a copy of the forgot password page.

php:
"selectColumns" => array("UserEmail","UserPassword"),





to:

php:
"selectColumns" => array("UserEmail","UserPassword","UserFirstName"),

Thanks Jason,

Adding the the UserFirstName to the selectColumns array works.

Can I style the body of the email as I would any other HTML file? I would like to replace the long url with <a href"http://www....">Reset Password</a>, but it is showing up as a syntax error.

Help!

Thanks again.

for an email, you need top use inline styling.

<a href"http...


should be:
<a href="http...

Sorry, I meant <a href="[*return_url*]">to reset your password update</a>.

When I've done this, I have been getting syntax error message and I do not understand why?

Any suggestions?

imposible to tell without having the exact error message and a copy of the page to examine the code.

Please find attached the forgotpassword page and an image file illustrating the code in use.
The syntax error occurs at line 169 which starts with "mailBody" =>
