Completely Edit Welcome Message

(Harsh) #1

Upon a new member registering for Discourse, they are sent a message by the system (or whatever account you specify) introducing them to the community. Upon some investigation, it seems I can’t edit the entire message, only certain parts!

Enjoy your stay!

(If you need to communicate with staff members as a new user, just reply to this message.)

Any chance this can change? I don’t know about everyone else, but I would like my main site’s welcome message to be fully adaptable to the individual website!

Upon looking at the Main Discourse Repo, the config /locales/server.en.yml file seems to be where the default message is being hard coded. Any chance this could change?


You should be able to change this in your admin area.

The only editable text content listed for me are the following:
