The confirmation email is sent to the main admin account's email address.

A "welcome" email is sent to the user when the admin clicks on the confirmation link or confirm the user through the administration menu.

Email body is customizable within the language file.

Based on default email-based self-registration module.

You can customize the e-mail messages by editing the language file or using Moodle's language editor.

Please read the INSTALL file carefully

    Hello Aaron,

    The latest version takes the language preferences of the recipient when sending a notification.

    The behavior you describe makes me believe that your translations were not rendered available to users.

    Maybe a 'clean cache' could help...

    If not, check out the logs around the sending of a message to see if there's anything unusual. If there is, feel free to communicate directly with me through my email address. You'll find it in the README.

    Best regards,

    Hello - Just put this onto our Moodle 3.4.2 (Build: 20180319) site and it's working well - APART from when a user clicks on the create account button, the form submits and we get a "500 - Internal server error.

    There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed." error.

    The emails are sending and the accounts authenticating but I can't work out what is causing the error.

    Has anyone encountered this before?

    @PDM produce: are you running on a language other than English by any chance?

    We just updated to moodle 3.5.1+ The auth_emailadmin works.
    BUT: It does not work with (extra) profilfields as we used for ages to specify the class/group, where new users are to registrate. The selfregistration shows the categorie for the (in our case dropdown) additional user-profilfield. The field is not there... And: Because it was a needed field, the registration failed without a visible error... Thanks for helping ...

    Hi Henry Paz,

    I tried it out and what I found was that the user profile field has to be configured to "Display on registration".

    I added such a field (checkbox) on my Moodle 3.5.1. It showed on the registration form. If I didn't check it, the form was not submitted.

    Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

    Best regards,

    Hello Felipe, thanks for checking and trying,
    it is -for ages and I just checked again- of course configured to "Display on registration"...
    What I realised: It does not work in the core's auth_email-plugin...

    Hello Felipe,
    we have the same problem with the (extra) profile-fields we created for our students... they are not shown on the registration page even though we enabled it.

    If I want one of the built in user fields (e.g. middlename) to be an item on the registration screen, how do I do this? I can see how to do this with custom user profile fields that I have created, but cannot work out how to do this with existing fields. Any tips would be greatly received.

    Any plan for supporting 3.6 ?

    Hello all
    I was wondering if it's possible to give permission to a teacher to accept the self registrations. In our organization it makes sense that the teachers should do it, but we are not willing to give them administrator profile. I've been searching in roles advanced options permissions but I couldn't find anything.

    Best regards

    Hi all, I didn't have the opportunity to try it on 3.6, but since it's a minor version bump, I see no reason it would break. So I added 3.6 to the list of supported versions. Please leave comments to confirm it works well, or to report issues.

    Thank you,
