Email to Admin on account reactivation after email change

By default, and if the option 'Require reactivation after email change' is enabled, the email message that is sent to admins when a member reactivates their account is the same as for when a new member joins which can be a bit confusing ...

The following tip adds the option of notifying admins when an account is reactivated and sends a different email message if the option is enabled.

In ./Sources/Register.php
SELECT id_member, validation_code, member_name, real_name, email_address, is_activated, passwd, lngfile
Replace With:
SELECT id_member, validation_code, member_name, real_name, email_address, is_activated, passwd, lngfile, last_login

adminNotify('activation', $row['id_member'], $row['member_name']);
Replace With:
if (empty($row['last_login']))
adminNotify('activation', $row['id_member'], $row['member_name']);
elseif (isset($modSettings['notify_admin_onReactivation']) && !empty($modSettings['notify_admin_onReactivation']))
adminNotify('reactivate', $row['id_member'], $row['member_name']);

In ./Sources/Subs-Post.php
$emailtype .= '_approval';

Add After:

if ($type == 'reactivate')
$emailtype .= '_reactivate';

In ./Themes/default/languages/EmailTemplates.english.php


Add After:
'admin_notify_reactivate' => array(
@additional_params: admin_notify
'subject' => 'A member has reactivated their account',
'body' => 'The member {USERNAME} has reactivated their account after changing their email address. Click the link below to view their profile.


In ./Themes/default/languages/ManageSettings.english.php
$txt['send_validation_onChange'] = 'Require reactivation after email change';
Add After:
$txt['notify_admin_onReactivation'] = 'Notify admin on reactivation after email change';

In ./Sources/ManageSettings.php
array('check', 'send_validation_onChange'),
Add After:
array('check', 'notify_admin_onReactivation'),

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum. Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas


thank you :) hadn't run into this yet but now I don't have to worry about it :D
