Registration email custom language string

I have recently upgraded to 3.8 and the new registration system with deadlines and user cancellation works really well.
I had a custom language string for the confirmation email that is sent after enrollment. The change from default was to display the [CONTACTEMAIL] (set for the event) instead of the [AUTHOREMAIL].

However, the [CONTACTEMAIL] does not seem to work any more.
The language string now invokes the =11.0pt[STRING_CANCELLATION] that includes this author mail.
I have tried to use a language override with contact [CONTACTMAIL], however this does not work ([CONTACTMAIL] is not substituted by the actual contact's mail)
How can I set this mail to be the contact email that is set for the event instead of the mail of the person who made the event?

Hello,

Could you copy/paste your custom string override you used ?

[CONTACTEMAIL] is meant to still work, so you can include it in a text to replace auto tag [STRING_CANCELLATION].

Cyril

This is the language string I use:

Hallo [NAME],\n\nU heeft zich aangemeld voor evenement '[TITLE]'.\n\nAls u de details van dit evenement opnieuw wilt zien, selecteer dan de volgende link of kopieer en plak deze in uw browser:\n[EVENTURL]\n\nDeze e-mail bevat uw persoonlijke gegevens die zijn ingevoerd bij het registreren voor dit evenement op de website [SITEURL].\n\n[STRING_NAME][STRING_EMAIL][STRING_PHONE][STRING_TICKETS][DATES_REGISTERED_LIST][CUSTOMFIELDS][STRING_NOTES]\nU kunt informatie opvragen, uw persoonlijke gegevens wijzigen of uw registratie annuleren door een e-mail te sturen naar: [CONTACTMAIL]\n\nMet vriendelijke groet,\n[SITENAME]

All tags get replaced, except for CONTACTEMAIL

PS is there also a tag for the cancellation link, since I would love to add this to the mail as well.

You copy/paste CONTACTMAIL in the full content, but it's CONTACTEMAIL (missing the "E" maybe" ?)

That worked. E was missing. Thanks for your help.

Is there a tag for the cancellation link as well?

Hello,
The typo error explains your issue ;-)

Is there a tag for the cancellation link as well?

Do you mean the link or the full translation string?
As 2 strings are used for cancellation (depending if logged-in registered user or visitor):
COM_ICAGENDA_REGISTRATION_EMAIL_STRING_CANCELLATION_LINK="You can request information by sending an email to %s or cancel your registration: %s \n\n"
COM_ICAGENDA_REGISTRATION_EMAIL_STRING_CANCELLATION_EMAIL="You can request information or cancel your registration by sending an email to: %s \n\n"

String above will replace tag [STRING_CANCELLATION]

Hope this helps?

Best regards,
Cyril

I mean a tag that will display the cancellation link. Since I don't want to include the email of the author in the mail, but the email that is set as a contact, I cannot use these "standard" cancellation strings.

To clarify:
Wat i would l like is a tag like [CONTACTEMAIL] that displays set contact email for the  cancellation link like: [CANCELLATIONLINKTAG] --> displays cancellation link.

Hello,

As you do an override of main string (the one with all tags) why not simply removing the default [STRING_CANCELLATION] and add your text with tag [CONTACTEMAIL] ?

Something like that (instead of [STRING_CANCELLATION]) :
You can request information or cancel your registration by sending an email to: [CONTACTEMAIL] \n

Hello,
It seems we do not quite understand each other.
What you describe is how I have set it up right know. However this does not include the option of displaying the cancellation link in the email.

Default option (cancellation_string)
contact authoremail or click on cancellationlink to cancel registration

What I want to accomplish:
Contact contactemail or click on cancellationlink to cancel registration

What I can do now (deleting [STRING_CANCELLATION] and replacing this with: Contact [CONTACTEMAIL] to cancel registration)
Contact contactemail to cancel registration.

IMHO there are 2 options to accomplish what i want:
1. a tag that can display the cancellation link. Then I can replace [STRING CANCELLATION] with "Contact [CONTACTEMAIL] or click on [CANCELLATIONLINK] to cancel registration"
2. Have the option to edit the [STRING_CANCELLATION] to use the contact email instead of the author email if set for the event.

Hello,

Sorry my bad...
Maybe i was sleepy when i answered first! :-D

I thought about to replace the contact email only...

Use the tag [URL_CANCEL] for url to cancel event ;-)

Contact [CONTACTEMAIL] or click on [URL_CANCEL] to cancel registration.

That means, for the 2 used strings:
COM_ICAGENDA_REGISTRATION_EMAIL_STRING_CANCELLATION_LINK="Contact [CONTACTEMAIL] or click on [URL_CANCEL] to cancel registration \n\n"

COM_ICAGENDA_REGISTRATION_EMAIL_STRING_CANCELLATION_EMAIL="Contact [CONTACTEMAIL] to cancel registration \n\n"

Hope this helps (this time!) ;-)

Best regards,
Cyril
