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.

Amy

Is this version available somewhere?

Installed and working perfectly on my 3.6 board. This is a GREAT hack. Thanks to Amy and to Lil7rocket for the revisions.

You know this is built in to 3.6, right?

No...I obviously did not know that and from all the posts, many others didn't either. Where is it located? I know that welcome PMs are there and welcom emails but where is the option to enable a welcome thread?

I'm so sorry. I was looking at multiple threads at the same time on multiple forums. I'm wrong.

Trying to remove this hack due to the unresolved "waiting for moderation" issue. I've deleted the plugin, but I can't delete the welcome_thread template. Any idea how to remove that? It's in my main style area.

Revert the template. That should delete it.

I reverted the template and all it did was set it back to the original coding of "EA is a very diverse........" Not that it's doing any harm by being there, hopefully I'll be editing it again soon when the waiting for moderation issue gets identified/resolved.

Did you try lilrocket's edit above:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=272
and
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=279

Apparently that'll let it work with moderation turned on... haven't had a chance to test it myself.
