Redirect New Members to Post Introduction Thread
V1.0 | Tested on Vbulletin 2.2.4, 2.2.5 | By Velocd

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Whats is it?
This hack will redirect new registered members, after they have filled their information out, to the introduction forums new thread posting screen. Here they can create their first post, and then submit it.

Why Should I care?
For one, this will partially guarantee all members having a post count of at least 1 ^_^

But more importantly, members will integrate more easily into the forums, and will be eager to read all replies to their introduction thread. Then they will feel more welcomed, and thus begin to post more on themselves.

The only drawback:
If you're using email verification, this hack will not work I didn't have the time tonight to figure out how to make it compatible with email verification, but maybe later I can figure it out (unless somebody beats me to it )

Hope you enjoy it!

None really, unless you want to register at my forums to get a live example. ^_^
oh, what the hell

BTW, this is what they see after clicking "submit" on the register page. You are just redirected to the "make new thread" page in the into forum...

It is redirecting upon activation, ofcourse I don't use email-verification on my forums so it seems that way.

Try using this then:

Place:

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

Somewhere in the activation part, in register.php. Like search for


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

And put it on the line below the last closing bracket.

This is not tested since I don't use email verification, but you can try yourself.

Thats easy enough, just replace this line here:

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

With this:

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

And replace "29" with whatever the forum ID number is.

That is what I was looking for too '
Maybe your update can have a Admin Control Panel option, so you can let the admin choose to either make a new post, or redirect to a post (give number) ? Would make your hack complete!

Try my version above, in post #5. It may work, but (whenever I get the time :/) I'll test it out and update the TXT.

i installed it also, and it werks perfectly!!

1 thing, is there maybe a way to delay the

"Thank you for registering, $username. You will now be redirected to create an introduction for yourself." part that you can see that longer. it shows like 0.5 seconds on my forum so maybe members dont know what to write

just a thought

Velocd, for the redirecting upon e-mail activation to work, I THINK the correct place for the code would be to

replace this:

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

with this:

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

I haven't tested it yet, but I think it should work..
Currently I don't have the ability to set up a test board or anything and I don't really want to test it on my live forums..
