Send a Private Message to user (and optional user note) when approved for a usergroup

This is a product that will send an automatic private message to a user (and optionally place a profile note in their profile) after being approved for a usergroup using the 'group memberships' system (and only the group memberships system).

Difficulty of installation: Easy!
Time to install: About 1 minute.


There are two versions of this product. One will add the profile note and the other will not. The one that adds a profile note works nicely with this plugin that places a note when a user requests to join. These help moderators and admins know who placed a request when and if they were approved, who did the approval and when (without having to dig into the logs).

This was inspired by Amykhar's plugin that emails the usergroup leaders upon a request (but does not replace it). With her permission, I used a bit of her code and thank her greatly for that plugin.

Download Instructions
Choose your version (do not install both):
  • product_ug_approval_pm_un.xml
    This version sends the user who was approved a private message and adds the user note to the member's profile
  • product_ug_approval_pm.xml
    This version only sends the user who was approved a private message
Install Instructions
Go to your admin cp, then:
Plugin System -> Manage Products -> [Add/Import Product] -> Browse and select the plugin you downloaded to your computer then press 'Import'.

This installs one plugin and one phrase.


Upgrade Instructions

Go to your admin cp, then:
Plugin System -> Manage Products -> find "PM to user when approved by Majorxp" and choose uninstall from the dropdown box. Then reinstall using instructions above.



Usage Instructions
You can edit the phrase UG_approval_pm to change the approval PM. The version that adds the usernote has the usernote hard coded. If enough folks want it phrased, let me know.

Misc Notes
This does not send out a PM or user note if the user request is denied. This was done below by another coder, but I have not yet fully tested it personally.

This also does not send a PM if you use the admincp or moderatorcp to promote users and I have no intentions of working on such a mod.


** If you use this product, please click install so I know that folks actually use this! **

Not using this plugin.

Yes, and the PM message is the phrase "UG_approval_pm".

I'm still around, but focusing on some other projects right now. Is there something you need regarding the mod?

I'm wondering if this would be easy to modify to have a different message depending on the usergroup they were approved for?

If I wanted to do that, could I change the name on the product, modify some code, and have it work?

SQL errors if approved user elects not to recieve PM

I just approved a user that has chosen to not receive PM from anybody. This resulted in a slew of SQL code being dumped on my screen. No harm done, as the approval was done and only the PM wasn't sent. But are there any ideas how to avoid that in the future, or at least to prevent the SQL dump? Maybe first check if the user has elected to receive PMs, and if not, don't try to send one?

I'd like to know a workaround before I open up this to other Group Leaders to use. I don't want to confuse them...
