Welcome Thread Upon Registration

This mod creates a welcome thread when a new member registers.

Features controlled via the ACP (See screenshot)

- Thread Title
- Thread Message
- Forum Location
- Post Icon
- Which User Creates Thread
- Thread Placed In Moderation
- Create Thread Before/After Email Activation
- Have a Random Title
- Have Random Thread Content
- Post From a Random Member
- Post a Random Icon

When is the thread created?

You now have the choice via the ACP! A thread can be created as soon as a member registers, or if you use email activation on your board, you can have the thread created once they have activated their email.

Boards that require an admin to approve new users

This mod has an option to place new threads into moderation. Once the new user has been approved via an admin, you can then release the new thread.

New Features in Version 1.2

Does your welcome forum look a little bit "samey" like this?


Same old thread title, same old post icon, same old user posting the thread and when you go inside it has the same old content?

Well maybe I could interest you in the latest version of this mod!



You decide on four titles and the content of four threads! You can also select the UserID's of who you want the threads to be created by. You can also select to have random post icons! - All controlled via the ACP.

Its all random. Thread title one doesnt belong to thread content one and thread title two doesnt belong to thread content two. With this mod when a member registers, thread title one may be posted with the contents of thread content four and thread title three might be posted with thread content two etc. The same goes with the UserID's and the post icon.

Screenshots

The screenshots show the ACP in version 1.2. I was unable to fit it all into one image, so had to split the image in half.

Although I have marked this as supported im a very new coder and this is my first release. I have tested it by signing up over 100 users on my test board and as yet there have been no glitches.
If there are any errors, I will try my best to resolve them, however as being new im still learning the ropes.

v1.1 - Thread creation after email activation added / Post Icon added 28/05/09
v1.2 - Random titles/UserID/Thread content/Post icons 30/05/2009 (49 d/l)

Is this mod basically the older mod (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=91887) but done in a product? I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't missing out on some other features

Is there a way to change this so it creates a thread when the member subscribes rather than registers?

That was the mod I was using on my forum, but I thought id recode it for 3.8 giving it ACP settings. With that mod it also dosent update the post count of the user set to make the thread, this mod has that resolved.

Thanks.
Post Icon addition has been added.

Regarding the PM, I would suggest using the "Send welcome PM" thats built into vbulletin and add something like this into it
Hi $username,

Welcome to the forum!

I have created a new thread to welcome you to the forum, why not pop by and say hello!
Welcome $username
Use the URL to take them to the forum where the welcome threads are created.
