How to alter universal email receipt when mac bug blocks it opening

How to alter universal email receipt when mac bug blocks it opening

I worked with Ray yesterday and he was able to sort out all of my problems, or so I thought. It turned out that one issue I was having was a mac bug, which he reported. When I click on the universal email server behaviour, the window opens and immediately closes. My problem is that I need to alter the email receipt and I'm not sure how to do that without having access to universal email. I was able to replace the basic lorum ipsum text by opening the file in the email folder and replacing it there. I'm just not sure how to alter it so that all the values are also passed along to the receipt. Right now it comes in mostly blank (no images or attributes). I've attached a screen grab to illustrate.

"I was able to replace the basic lorum ipsum text by opening the file in the email folder and replacing it there."

any edits need to happen to that same file.

to add images, you would need to add the full pats in the source:

<img src="http://mydomain.com/images/image.jpg">

That's what I'm asking. In the past, I would open Universal Email to make alterations and it would write the code in the correct place. I'm not sure where to change things in that file. As shown in the attachment, it also isn't displaying any of the customer's information or order details, such as size.

That file is a standard web page.

you make changes to the email template the same as you would a standard web p[age.

as for the customer info, send a copy of the file and the checkout page please.

do a find and replace of:

[FORMREF]

and replace it with:
CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default


for example:
$MailBody = $MailBody . (WA_getSavedFormValue('[FORMREF]','First_Name'));

should be
$MailBody = $MailBody . (WA_getSavedFormValue('CheckoutWizard_NewFromBlank_Default','First_Name'));


if you can be a bit more specific on what other changes you are trying to make i can give details on how to implement them.

Ok, thanks. The find and replace shows that it replaced 16 items. What I need it to do specifically is to display the customer's billing information (there is no shipping on this site), the size they selected and the product image.

the change above should show the billing info.

for the size and image, yoou can concatinate that to the product name.

find:
$MailBody = $MailBody . $fangearlive->DisplayInfo("Name");

and change it to:

$MailBody = $MailBody . "<img src=\"http://yourdomain.com/imagespath/".$fangearlive->DisplayInfo("Thumbnail")."\"><br />".$fangearlive->DisplayInfo("Name")."<br /> Size: ".$fangearlive->DisplayInfo("Size")."";

make sure to change:
http://yourdomain.com/imagespath


to your domain and the correct path to the thumbnails

the above code assumes that the column names for image and size are Thumbnail and Size, you will need to adjust accordingly.
