Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This little mod will start a new thread in the forum of your choice when somebody registers.

The thread message is contained in a template, and easily customizeable on your part.

This version posts the thread when the user registers - but before he activates his email address.

Thanks to flypaper for providing a bugfix.

Installation Instructions: Import the product. Change the welcome_thread template to suit your needs. Change the setup variables in the welcome thread plugin to suit your needs.

A plugin contains a snippet of code that hooks into a file and executes at the same time.

A product is a group of plugins, templates, phrases, and queries grouped together as one functional modification.

hmmm

The thread title doesn't seem to get updated on the main forum display (index) page, just the poster's name gets updated.

It doesn't work under RC2, as it is said before here in posts.

Yes it does. It just has the nasty side effect of throwing things into the moderated queue as well.

Not sure if this has been discussed, but how about forcing a new user that has signed up to post in the Introductions(or whatever yours is called) forum before they can access anything else? Simply have a box in the registration pages for their chance to post this Intro thread(show at registration as a required field). Feedback?

You don't need a mod for that.
1. Create a new usergroup. Give it the permissions of your registered usergroup. Move all your registered users with at least one post to that group.
2. Change the permissions of your registered usergroup so that the only forum they can post in is your welcome forum.
3. Set up a promotion so that once they have the first post, they are moved to the new user group that you created.
Done.

I also found this is happening with me as well, plus there is no thread title, any ideas?

*update* thread title appears after someone replies to the initial post.
But it still shows there is no threads. My intro forum on my test forum where i installed this shows 0 threads and 1 post, but there is 2 threads in it.

For some reason, the post wasn't made, which throws that error. I really need to zap this attachment since RC2 seems to have broken some things and I don't have time right now to play with the code.

I just got the same error. However, it worked for me yesterday, so it doesn't seem to happen every time...

edit: n/m I see you pulled it already.

edit again:
It's obviously this line that is doing it:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

is there really supposed to be a period after username=' ? That results in the name being '.flypaper' instead of 'flypaper'. Please excuse my ignorance if wrong, I'm not even a beginning level of coder. kekekeke
