    You'll need to edit the phrase and blank out the custom text.

      Please redownload vBulletin 5.1.6.

      When doing so, click the More Download options and choose the Spanish language.

      Upload those files and run upgrade.php again.

      Use the new official Spanish Language and they should appear correctly.

        I did this but it did not fix the problem

          Please elaborate more on this. It is my understanding that the Spanish Text is fine, however, the system is sending variables instead of converting them to the actual data before sending it.

            The email you copied is not a 5.1.6 email phrase. It is a vBulletin 4.X phrase. No variables to parse in it.

            The vBulletin 5 phrase looks like this:
            Code:
            Dear {1},
            
            Thank you for registering at the {2}. Before we can activate your account one last step must be taken to complete your registration.

            **** Does The Above URL Not Work? ****
            If the above URL does not work, please use your Web browser to go to:
            {3}/activateuser
            
            Please be sure not to add extra spaces. You will need to type in your username and activation number on the page that appears when you visit the URL.

              Do you think this is a problem with the English language then and not the Spanish language? I downloaded the language 5.1.6 and re-installed it by first deleting the old Spanish language. I went a step further and downloaded the update 5.1.6 with the Spanish language included and it did not solve the problem.

              Should I also delete the English language and re-install it?

              I am downloading my Spanish language from the members area here in vbulletin.com

                I am having the same issue. The emails come in English and translated so that all ...

                example:

                Hello Toropí,

                We would like to at UruMotos wish you a happy birthday today!

                  It's nothing to do with whether the Spanish text is fine or not. It isn't a translation issue, this happens on English language sites as well.

                  If your site is an upgrade from vB4, and you had customised the phrase, then after the upgrade the phrase remains customised, but now the variables are incorrect.

                  You need to "revert" the phrase, by blanking out any customised text and saving.
                  This will force the phrase back to the defaults for 5.1.6, which should fix the problem.
                  You can then customise again if you wish.

                    Easiest way to do this is to delete all languages from the system in the Admin CP. Even the default English language. Then run /core/install/upgrade.php on your site.
