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.

Working in 3.6.8 - but want to improve ....

HI, I just installed the original plug-in as product and worked fine.

I was able to edit both the plau-in and the template.

Now I would like to improve litlle things like:

1) how to make it choose a Smile for the post in the title?

2) I am using pure text in template but how to use the codes for bold and colored fonts?

If I enter like this:

Welcome $username to English Coffee !!!! Thanks for joining us!

I get error when saving:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /home/english/public_html/includes/adminfunctions_template.php(3596) : eval()'d code on line 1

Any solution for this?

sorry, deinstalled.
No clue what to configure and/or set to make this mod working... Maybe you should post a step by step installation WHAT AND WHERE EXACTELY to change or configure as I (and for sure not me alone) do not understand how this shall work and where to set any settings for this mod.
-> where to set in which forum the thread will be started?
-> where to set, WHO is going to start the thread (username settings...)
and so on and so on....
no, sorry, deinstalled after 3 minutes...

Well, this is going to be an embarrassingly simple question for you all. I have read through all the pages here but since I know so little of this stuff, I am left to ask,,,,,

Where do I access the place in this product to change our welcome message?

We are running 3.6.8 patch 2 and it is working perfectly for us. Just want to do some tweaking on the message. I don't see where I can make an edit in the admincp for VB. I have access to the ftp site for the file if it is there. But where would I go??

Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction.

I don't know if you've figured out your question or not yet, but I wanted to let you know... In the Admin CP you go down to Plugins & Products, Then Plug in Manager. You click on the Welcome Thread Modification, and it will open up the page to edit all the text, etc...

Good luck!

Thanks habasabi! Actually, I have figured it out but not where yours seems to be located. In your location on our setup is the php code request box.

Instead for us,,Styles and Templates / Style Manager / Edit Templates / Welcome Thread - Edit.

Took me a while to dig that deep. Thanks for the reply.
