Well, I was thinking a bit.

You could:

- Create new field in user table, let's call it already welcomed on installation and make it boolean (logical, only Yes/No)
- Put 1 (Yes) in all already existing users fields, so there wouldn't be new welcome threads for old users.
- When there's new email confirmation, check also if already welcomed field for that user is set to Yes, or if it is still No (0). If still No, create new welcome thread.
- After you create welcome thread for user, change status of his already welcomed field to Yes (1).

This would prevent multiple welcome threads when old users confirm new email addresses.

If you are ever considering new features for this mod, how about considering this?
The welcome thread/post reply content will be based on the new custom user field /or fields that is/are required on registration.

Hey Guys,

I use this great hack to create a new thread in adminzone and inform about new users.
But as you can see on the screen, sometimes the variable $username be empty. Im not sure where the bug comes from.

I copied the sam text to every title and body field in adminzone.

Maybe ozzy can implement a select what nubers used for create new threads, so i can say "use only template 1 and 2 for create new threads/posts.

Here the Screen: http://prntscr.com/3elg1w & http://prntscr.com/3elgbg

Br Lex

How difficult would it be to add the ability to specify a tag like 'new member'

Update:

Please ignore my question. I found a different way to do it.

Great mod. I might end up using it.

Just a request: I would like to see this show their names and have it link to their new profile

Like where it says the name like this in the new post.

EXAMPLE:
Welcome CoZmicShReddeR, Glad you have joined!

I remember there was one here in the forums I used years ago that did that. I tried looking for it but cannot find it or I had it and it stopped working with VB4

Hmmm, I'll have to look into that and see if it is still feasible, which it should be.

It would be even cooler () if it could work with mentions (DBTech AUT mod), but sadly, probably it wouldn't ever work. Linking with profiles is, on the other hand a bit easier. You just need userID supplied (like we have username supplied with $username variable), and you could construct link to users' profile fairly easy.

On the other hand, I'd like that mod checks if the user was previously registered and if was, not to create welcome thread. It looks a bit strange when users registered for years receive welcome thread.
