When the admin clicks on the confirmation link, a "welcome" email is sent to the user.

Email body needs to be customized within the language file.

Based on default email-based self-registration module.

    @Rob Woof, these fields are what the message calls 'custom fields'. You can't just pick one of those. You either add them all to the message, or you don't.

    Aaah yes! I missed that bit. I should have read the text more thoroughly. I do want all of the custom fields, so I'm in business! Thanks for your patience!

    I found a problem in 1.4.3.

    Settings "Enable reCAPTCHA element" and "Notification strategy" do not work.

    It does not work because of plugin refers to database, table config_plugins and looking plugin name auth/emailadmin and not auth_emailadmin

    Hi Arkadiusz, thank you for the heads up. Would you mind to create an issue on Github if not already done? I'll look into it.

    Thank you,

    Hi Mahedra, the answer to your question is in the INSTALL file and in previous messages. I'll soon add the information to the notification messages themselves to try to improve the chances of avoiding this recurring question in the future.

    Hi Felipe,

    if a user tries logging in after requesting an account but before the admin approves, then they get the default Moodle message about following the instructions in an email to confirm their account. A quick look at the code makes me think this is a pretty high level action that could only be resolved by customizing the language pack to change these strings. Do you agree with my conclusion or is there another way to get a different message here?

    Hi Felipe,

    There is a small issue with registration notification emails, the short names of users' custom profile fields are used instead of names. Is it something you could change?

    i want to create users via Moodle, web service api, the code works, but user is created and activated!! without sending mail to moderators!
    Here the auth parameter that i send via api :
    $user1->auth = 'emailadmin';
    probably missed some parameters to fix that the user is not yet confirmed?
    i want that Moodle sens confirmation email and showing link in administration to confirm (exactly like the plugin did".
    Thanks in advance

    Hola best wishes from Paraguay in COVID19 time.....
    One of my domain was expired. I did not renew it in time. It was on sale already. Yesterday i decided to pay again for it. On it I have a Moodle powered site, with an old version of Moodle 2.6! I waited for 24 hours, and this morning I tried to launch the site. It did not open up at all. I got the error "Authentication plugin emailadmin not found".
    Now, I assume, that this message refers to the GREAT Felipe plugin, I am using in another site without any problem, with Moodle 3.7 plus. What can I do considering i cannot access Moodle at all? is there anything one can do by accessing files on the webserver? I have asked the webserver support team but they did not help. They simply said that ther domain seems to work correctly and that not having access to the backend of the plugin they cannot do anything. Please suggest what i can do? Thanks a lot.

    To be more precise: I got the error "incorrect access detected, the server may be accessed only through address, sorry. Please notify server administration". This message turns to this other error after being displayed for a few seconds on the screen: "Authentication plugin emailadmin not found". Any suggestions on how to solve this issue? Is it related to this plugin at all? Best wishes from Paraguay

    Hey Giorgio, I went to your site and saw the error. Out of the blue, I though about trying to go to /admin to see if it would report any install/migration stuff. It actually reported a 'cache inconsistency' and proposed to 'clear'. I clicked it, and now your site seems to be working 🤷
