XF 1.2 How do I send a pdf as a bonus

Ken Black

Hi, if I want to send people a free ebook for signing up to my forum, how do I do that ?

Help appreciated.

Thank you.

Okay thanks - just wondering if a link to it could be included it the email sent to new subscribers.
From what I recall, editing the confirmation emails is a rather complicated process and not suggested.

Using an add-on would be a better way to go so that when it comes time to upgrade you won't have to manually edit files.

The email confirmation text is a phrase and quite easy to edit, Andy.
Thanks, Jeremy. I was looking at the template that includes the phrase.

The phrase to edit would be "user_account_approved_body_text". Just add any text and a link to the PDF document and you're set.
