although i know this works manually, it's untested via cron

1. Emails users after 3 days and reminds them to activate their accounts.


2. Emails users after 5 days and lets them know their account will be deleted if they do not activate.

3. Emails users after 8 days with a final warning.

4. Deletes un-activated members after 10 days.

it still does exactly the same but this time for vb3 :D

oh yeah, it emails you to tell you who was deleted, emailed so you're always informed.

if you got a big board you can't live without this, it stops the crap from piling up.

anything messes up, i can't take responsibility i'm afraid so back up before you try it.

now save and close cos you're done :cheeky: :bored:

wol stuff been removed due to the fact this should now be in the cron directory and thus won't show up anyway

and now like the days of our youth where everything was free and our mum would have dinner on the table for us, you're done.

this was a fantastic vb2 hack and was made with blood, sweat and tears by Amy, she deserves all the credit for doing a fantastic job and then giving me permission to release this, so please if you install this should your gratitude in her direction as without her it would've been impossible.

the two critical bugs that a/ it wasn't sending the activationid and b/ it was deleting users who didn't change their email correctly, have been squashed by Psico


v2.1: Boofo killed 2 bugs :D
v2.2: more bugs killed by Boofo :D :D
v2.3: bugs killed by psico :D :D :D
v2.3a: bugs killed by sv1cec :D :D :D :D
v2.4: changed activation code when one exists already removed (sv1cec) :D :D :D :D :D
v2.4: better cron logging (me) :D :D :D :D :D :D
v2.4: table prefix bug found by jlurken, fixed by moi :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
v2.5: email reminder sent to your inbox thanks to sv1vec, improved logging, removed redundant code. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
v2.5.2: fixed table prefixes. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D


YOU WILL NOW NEED TO EDIT THE FILE TO MAKE SURE IT WORKS, IT'S CLEARLY MARKED ON LINE 21

What's the downside to having a large amount of unactive members saved?

sabret00the 04 Jun 2004 23:15

depends on what your board is trying to do with them users, but it's mostly taking up space it don't need to be.

i saw a post by someone the other day that said they had 200 members unconfirmed, to think something like this could've seduced em into completing their registration.

you know this is already in vb3 right by default, right? albeit not exactly the same, but you could just hack the existing one.

sabret00the 05 Jun 2004 17:25

yup, noticed last night and thought asked for it be removed, read their version and thought this would make a nice alternative as does remove the users after said amount of days

Paul, I have this set up to use vB3's cron and it works great. PM me on my site and I will give you the updated file and what you need for this. ;)

How do I do that?

PixelFx 05 Jun 2004 22:52

very nice, *looks over at list of 400 new unchecked accounts* I think I could use this ;)

sabret00the 06 Jun 2004 04:17

it's 5am, i'm still at work, but i'll talk to bob in the morning and update the neccessary files as soon as i wake up tomorrow.

lifesourcerec 06 Jun 2004 16:59

Sounds good :)

Bryan Ex 06 Jun 2004 17:27

If I install this (I'm really tired of pruning manually!) will it double up the activation reminders that are already being sent out by VB3?

sabret00the 06 Jun 2004 17:31

if you install this, you're best to disable the one built into vbulletin, but i would wait a while cos i'm going to update this by end of weekend.

Bryan Ex 06 Jun 2004 17:33

Perfect! Just out of curiousity... is the update for bug fixes ... or additions to what you've already posted?
