EMAIL BUG: any "id" replaced with "PAY-XXXX..." ! HELP!


Recommended Posts

Hello everbody,


I have a really stupid and strange bug,

All my email texts(sender email, subject, body) are being manipulated before sending...

All text including "id" replaced with "PAY-XXXXXX..." i guess it's a payment id, but it's replaceing all text "id" not {id},

This is really stupid since my email contain "id" and my store name and products contain "id" so this breakes all my emails,


  Total Tax paPAY-67F68610KP691852MLDZHLMI  

instad of "Total Tax paid"


and my email sent from:


instead of : sales@kidiwatch.co.il


p.s : the id changes every order so it's also change senders...


I suspect this is from paypal addon, or a bug in the core

Please help me fix it, it's completly breaks my emails.


see attached image


thanks allot !!!

1: the PDF invoice attached to the email is fine, not effected by this bug, only the content of the emails,

2: i do not use any addons exept PayPal and the cores modules, and i  use CLASSIC Theme.

 so it's must be papal addon or core bug... i guess...

update #2: Found out that PAY-xxxxxxx is paypal payment id reference by looking in the database field "payment_id" in "paypal_orders" table,

So i guess paypal addon is the problem, But I still can't find where in the addon source an "id" variable is pushed to the confirmation email...

Nobody had this problem before? this is SO WEIRD...

could not find where papal enter this specific variable so i unset it just before the swift mailer gets all the varibles...


at file classes/Mail.php


add this:

           //fix paypal id messing up email
            $templateVars['{paypal_id}'] =$templateVars['id'];

 before the line   (~line 390) :

 $swift->registerPlugin(new \Swift_Plugins_DecoratorPlugin(array($toPlugin => $templateVars)));
