I have been trying to edit the welcome email that students receive after they self enroll in any course using PayPal. I have found where the text is generated from, and want to customize it.
I am in Language Customization, enrol_paypal.pnp page and have entered my custom text in the relevant field: welcometocourse text. I've saved the page, and then saved the language pack and exited out of that function. I've double checked that my edits are saved in the language pack. In theory, everything is looking good. I have tested my paypal enrollment, and it is generating the Student welcome course email; BUT the email uses the default text and NOT my custom text.
I haven't been able to find any messages in the forum where someone has had a similar problem. Can anybody help me work out what is going wrong, and why the default text is overriding my customization. I've customized other elements of Moodle in the past and not had this problem.
In my custom text I have referenced the course name, in exactly the same way as the default message does. However, I have removed the text about reminding the student to update their profile and providing the URL to their profile. I have not added any other dynamic text, the rest of my message is all just plain text.
I would appreciate any help I can get before I go completely mad! :o
