tired
Unfortunately, my host doesn\'t support email. This is bad cause new userrs don\'t get the email with their password so they have to contact me to reset their password and give them a new one. I would like to hack it in some way so that when they sign up, they are just shown some sort of page or maybe that dialogue to show them their password. Anyone know of anything I can do? i did see this hack, but as far as I can tell, it doesn\'t do anything but not send the emails out. Any help is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks a lot, Kyle

As far as I\'m aware this hack does exactly what you need (user registers giving login and password and then can instantly log in). In addition you have to modify language file and users.thtml. Should work for 1.3.8.

well I reverted to v 1.3.7sr2 just so i could apply this hack but it didn\'t work. Now that you said that, I don\'t think I did it right. I made the changes to the users.php file but it didn\'t do anything. What do I hafta edit in the language file and users.thtml (which I can\'t find. I can only find footer_users.thtml and footerleft.thtml)? I didn\'t edit either of those because it didn\'t specify what to edit in those files? Thanks so much in advance, MacFanatic39
