Hi I am using SS2.3.2 and rc4 and ecommerce 0.6 beta. I want the system to email any new user that signs up/ is registered their username and password to the email address that they specified.

As far as i can tell from the documentation i have to extend the Member class and the write a onBeforeWrite() function that tells silverstripe to send an email to the new member, but i am not sure where to begin.

Some help please

Hi Optic Blaze,
The Ecommerce module decorates the member class in the ecommerce/_config.php
DataObject::add_extension('Member', 'EcommerceRole');

You'll find the file in ecommerce/code/model/EcommerceRole.php
Around line 107 you'll see the code for making a new memeber. Something along the lines of

$email = new Email($from, $to, $subject, $body);

Will send mail. But you'll need to sus out what you want to send.
