How to remove concrete5 from the email name?


When I send test emails from my site it keeps referring to concrete5 - <concrete5 [email protected]>. I want to change this to blah [email protected] Is there anyway of customising this to what I want? I've searched through settings but unable to find anything to do it.

Thanks Luke, but I am don't understand the site's config/site.php. I'm unable to find it in the search engine.

Any further assistance you could offer?

You need access to your server files.

Look for the folder 'config', then edit site.php.

Use server control panel or an FTP program or ask your hosing provider to help you.

Just to add to 55webdesign's reply... the 'site.php' file will look something like the example below. Then as per the 'how to' I mentioned earlier, copy the code line:

define('EMAIL_DEFAULT_FROM_ADDRESS', '[email protected]');

...and add the code into your 'site.php' file, obviously changing the '[email protected]' to your own preferred email address. This will then override the default concrete5 'from' email address.

The 'config' folder will have to be accessed via FTP or accessing the installation folders and files through CPANEL.

If you are nervous about editing the file just make a copy of the original 'site.php' file so that you can revert back to it if there is a problem.

Hope this helps.


define('EMAIL_DEFAULT_FROM_ADDRESS', '[email protected]');

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost');
define('DB_USERNAME', 'etc...');
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'etc...');
define('DB_DATABASE', 'databasename...');
define('BASE_URL', 'http://etc...');
define('DIR_REL', '/etc...');
define('PASSWORD_SALT', 'etc.. etc...');
