The File email_templates_data.xml

Postby metricgravity » Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:07 pm


I have been reading the technical reference guide for OJS systems. (This guide is located at http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/docs/technicalreference/2.1/ .) The guide claims that there is a file called email_templates_data.xml located in the directory /dbscripts/xml/data/locale/[localeName]. There is no such file on my system.

The description of the file email_templates_data.xml appears in the guide at the URL http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/docs/technicalref ... Tasks.html , under Section 7.1.

I am using Version 2.3.6 of Open Journal Systems. It appears that the online technical reference guide is for Version 2.1. Could you please let me know where to find the file (or files) with the equivalent function of email_templates_data.xml, on OJS Version 2.3.6?

Thank you,

Hi metricgravity,

The location for the email templates message payloads is now in the locale directory, for each locale. So, for English it would be in locale/en_US/emailTemplates.xml

Note that if you make changes to that file you'll need to reload your email templates since OJS stores those templates in the database once a locale is enabled.
