How do I change the subject and content of the email sent to new users of limesurvey?

The users who create and administer the surveys - not those who complete them.

do you mean change the emails you had sent? If so, I think you can't...

I want to change the email template used to send new admin users their login details.

Admin users create and manage surveys.

This is how it's generated:
  1. Go to Administration.
  2. Click Create/Edit Users (the key).
  3. Enter their Username, Email and Full Name.
  4. Click Add User.
An automated email is sent to the new user's email address with their login details.

It looks something like this:
Subject: Registration
Hello [Full Name],

this is an automated email to notify that a user has been created for you on the site '[Survey Site]'.

You can use now the following credentials to log into the site:
Username: [Username]
Password: [Password]
[Click here to log in].

If you have any questions regarding this mail please do not hesitate to contact the site administrator at [webmaster email]. Thank you!

I want to change the content of this email.

How do I edit this email template?

Hello,

To change totally the mail content:
$ grep -r "this is an automated email" *
admin/usercontrol.php:            $body .= sprintf($clang->gT("this is an automated email to notify that a user has been created for you on the site '%s'.",'unescaped'), $sitename)."<br /><br />\n";
Then look at admin/usercontrol.

To change only text: see translation.

Denis

I have another question:
if I edit the file "usercontrol.php" or the translation, is this change immune to software updates?

Thanks
