Social Group Creation Announcement Threads & Private Messages

As the title suggests this modification will create a thread when a new social group is created. In addition to this you can also configure the modification to send a designated user a private message on social group creation.

The installation of this product is made up of the following and does not require any file changes:
  • One product import.

Installation : Product Import

The installation of this modification is fairly simple, for those that do not have experience of doing this here are the full steps:
  1. Download the attached XML to your computer.
  2. Goto your Admin CP page (ACP).
  3. Open the "Plugins & Products" section.
  4. Click "Manage Products".
  5. On the page that opens scroll to the bottom and click "Add/Import Product".
  6. In the "EITHER upload the XML file from your computer" browse to the product XML file that you downloaded in the first step.
  7. Click "Import"
  8. Sit back and watch vBulletin do its magic.

Configuration Options

This modification has a few custom configuration options that can be found here:

ACP -> vBulletin Options -> Social Group Creation Threads

Each of the these settings are self explanatory and is well documented in ACP.

On install the modification is disabled by default, this allows you to sort out settings with the mod inactive.

Other Information

I really wanted the thread/pm to contain a link directly to the new social group, unfortunately this is not possible as the group id has not been set when the relevant hook is called. This means that the thread will link to the groups homepage where the new group will be listed. I also would have liked to get the category name in the thread/pm however this would have required the addition of an SQL call as the text is also not available at hook point.

I have recently started a "Why isn't this stuff in the default social group system" series of modifications, this particular mod IMHO does not really belong in this group but if you would like to see them here they are:

And finally...

You know the deal if you install and use the mod please mark it as installed and rate it, if you really like it nominate it for mod of the month.

This is great. The only issue or question is when private groups are created, it still posts to the group. I would like an option in the CP to NOT post Private groups.

Good news!

This works on vB4 as is~! =D

The only thing that's not perfect for vB4 is.. it uses the old links for profiles on the announcement threads, which still work.
