HotFix: CORE-8351 - Domain renewal email template days until nextdue merge field always zero

Recommended Posts


We have become aware of a functional issue in the 5.3.12 release published on Wednesday, 25 Feb 2015, which affects the email template merge field “domain_days_until_nextdue”.


When sending domain expiry notices prior to domain expiry, this merge field is improperly assigned a value of "0". In the default renewal notice email template, this value is used next to the individual domain name the notice relates to in parenthesis. The merge field “domain_days_until_expiry” is however calculated and displayed correctly as part of the leading paragraph related to that domain and notice in general.




In most cases, the expiry and the next due dates will be identical. This means that email templates using this merge field can simply be updated to use {$domain_days_until_expiry} in place of {$domain_days_until_nextdue}.


Alternatively, we are releasing a hot-fix patch which corrects the calculation of {$domain_days_until_nextdue}. To apply the hot-fix, see below.


Applying the Hot-Fix


To apply the fix, download the zip file from the link below. Extract the contents, a single file named “functions.php”, and upload it to the /includes/ folder of your WHMCS installation.




Note: This file is only valid if you are running Version 5.3.12.
