How-to: Change Contact E-mail from Terms and Privacy Page

Filed under: Tips & Tricks

When you're using terms and privacy skinobject for your web site, it will pull in the web administrator e-mail address to display as part of a way for visitors to communicate with a site's webmaster.

If you are like me, just wanted to add something real quick and move on, you'll more likely to come back in the future when the project is done and find a way to correct it.

Well, remember during the process of installing DotNetNuke or creating a new portal for your project, you are asked to provide administrator information including name, username, e-mail address and so on? When visitors click on the terms or privacy link, they will be taken to the control that display the content pulls from a resource file somewhere on your site with the e-mail address you provided during the portal creation. If this e-mail is incorrect and you'd like to modify it, you will need to log in as an administrator and edit your profile to correct the e-mail address. I realize that a site can have multiple administrators, but this administrator have to be the one who created the portal for the change to take effect.

Hi Dann,
You can change the admin user of whom the email is used under: Site Settings > Advanced Settings > Other Settings > Administrator
The Email address of the Admin user you select there will be used as portal admin email address.

Hi Timo, thanks for the tips. I saw that before and never had a chance to play with it to know what it is. It's a good way to figure out who is "the administrator" of the site.

I personally prefer to use a custom Terms page.
