Email send not clickable url after registration PHP

my problem is in the email sent after users registration. While you get an email for your account verification there is a link you need to visit with your browser to verify your account.

This link is not clickable, you have to copy and paste it into your browser. But I need to make it clickable. I found the source of the link in my php files.

Source code of the link in the email verification

'.get_bloginfo('url').'/?ekey='.$emailhash;


The whole source is

//send email to escort
$body = _d('Hello',17).' '.$yourname.'<br /><br />
'._d('Before you can use the site you will need to validate your email address.',795).'
'._d('If you don\'t validate your email in the next 3 days your account will be deleted.',960).'<br /><br />
'._d('Please validate your email address by clicking the link bellow',1025).': </br>
<a href="<?php echo get_bloginfo('url') . '/?ekey=' . $emailhash; ?>">some link</a>

escort_email("", "", $youremail, _d('Email validation link',1026)." ".get_option("email_sitename"), $body);


Is there any way to make it clickable as the a href tag or something like that?

Thank you.

Answer

HTML anchors look like this

<a href="http://www.example.com">some link</a>

You are going to need to concatenate on the link that you want to display which is..

get_bloginfo('url') . '/?ekey=' . $emailhash

so that it replaces the "example.com link above.

You can do it like this...

<a href="<?php echo get_bloginfo('url') . '/?ekey=' . $emailhash; ?>">some link</a>

EDIT: Try this code:

In response to the opies updated code... your anchor tag was already being echoed out inside of php tags so a solution like this:

<?php    
<a href="<?php echo get_bloginfo('url') . '/?ekey=' . $emailhash; ?>">some link</a>
?>

is going to fail because we can't have nested <?php ?> tags.

The solution is to simply concatenate the values that you want into the echoed html like this:

$body = _d('Hello', 17) . ' ' . $yourname . '
<br />
<br />
' . _d('Before you can use the site you will need to validate your email address.',795) . '
' . _d('If you don\'t validate your email in the next 3 days your account will be deleted.',960).'<br /><br />
' . _d('Please validate your email address by clicking the link bellow',1025). ':
</br>
<a href="' . get_bloginfo('url') . '/?ekey=' . $emailhash . '">some link</a>';

escort_email("", "", $youremail, _d('Email validation link',1026)." ".get_option("email_sitename"), $body);
