    Overview:

    This product is designed to auto-post a welcome thread for all new users once they have completed all verifications, and/or returning members (who have been inactive for a defined number of days). The author of the thread can be one or more users chosen at random which you define in the product's settings. The body of the messages are also defined in the settings, with designated replacements for the username of the recipient, your forum bbtitle, and the username of the author.

    Compatibility:

    Tested and working on vB 4.2.5 and may work on earlier 4.x versions of vBulletin.

    Backup/Warning:

    This product does not alter your database, however it is always good practice to make regular backups and you should make a backup before installing ANY new mod.

    As always, products are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will provide support and do my best to help but no absolute guarantee is offered.

    To Install:

    1. Download and extract the attached .zip file.
    2. Follow AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product.
    3. Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product .xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
    4. Click "Import."
    5. You MUST enable the product in the settings before it will function.
    6. Configure the remaining settings to your liking. Each setting has a detailed explanation of its use.

    hey Mark -

    Will the posting format allow for HTML coding?


    Thanks,

    Hey Scott,

    This product uses vBulletin's intrinsic data manager functions, so I would imagine raw HTML would only be allowed if the designated author has permission to post HTML in the destination forum.

    Makes sense, I'll test it out later this weekend.

    Thanks!

    I had one of my Admins ask about when this mod would post.

    It appears this would create the thread when the user completes the registration process, even if they put into a Users Awaiting Moderation. Could this mod trigger the post after they have been accepted as a registered user? I would hate to post a welcome message to a new member that is a clear spam account.


    Just a thought

    Locate the plugin associated with this product with the title "Post Welcoming Thread To Newly Registered User" and in that plugin locate the line of code that reads:



    and change it to read:



    I haven't tested this, but it should work as you request.

    had a new user to validate, checked to make sure that usergroup id was Registered and did not trigger the post and making the code change as mentioned

    However, this change gives me a different way I using this modification - when a user becomes a VIP member

    So, it's now working as you want?

    That would require code at a different hook location, I would think.

    not the moment - I do want to retest this later today as I might have caused a failure going to the wrong forum

    It just occurred to me, the change I suggested would only be useful if you are using email confirmation...the plugin is hooked at the registration process, so if you are manually approving users, this isn't going to work.
