Email templates
Email templates define the message subject and body for emails generated by the provisioning platform. The template as such do contain variables which will be merged in with actual data upon the sending of the specific email.

The following email templates are available and are the only templates used by the Control Panel:

  • User Account Summary Letter: Summarized the hosting spaces and Hosting Add-ons procured by the user
  • Hosting Space Summary Letter: Provides a summary of current service offering with available and used resources
  • Password Reminder Letter: This templates is used to send the admin users email and password to a registered email address when the user indicates he has forgotten his password.
    • Control Panel uses Ader Template engine syntax to render all system templates. Please see this page for more information about template engine library and its complete syntax: http://www.adersoftware.com/index.cfm?page=templateEngine2
    • If you need to render # (sharp) symbol, for example HTML color value, it should be written as ## (double sharp), because # is reserved symbol in template engine.
    • All template engine processing tags (“ad:if”, “ad:foreach”, etc.) should be well-formed:
      • Have closing tag for each corresponding opening tag
      • All tag attributes should be surrounded with double quotes.
      • All tag names should be written in lower case.
