      Description

      English language string 'auth_emaildescription' in auth.php still reports Email based authentication as the default athentication method. This no longer holds true since the email based auth is disabled bu default on any new Moodle setup.

        Hi Helen,

        This string still seems to be wrong, I wonder if you have any thoughts on what we should change it to? It currently says:

        Email confirmation is the default authentication method. When the user signs up, choosing their own new username and password, a confirmation email is sent to the user's email address.
        This email contains a secure link to a page where the user can confirm their account. Future logins just check the username and password against the stored values in the Moodle database.

        Hi Dan, thanks for asking for my opinion. My suggested wording is as follows (adding a note about the self registration setting which is often missed):

        Email-based self-registration enables a user to create their own account via a 'Create new account' button on the login page. The user then receives an email containing a secure link to a page where they can confirm their account. Future logins just check the username and password against the stored values in the Moodle database.

        Note: In addition to enabling the plugin, email-based self-registration must also be selected from the self registration drop-down menu on the 'Manage authentication' page.
