1. Emails users after 3 days and reminds them to activate their accounts.


2. Emails users after 5 days and lets them know their account will be deleted if they do not activate.

3. Emails users after 8 days with a final warning.

4. Deletes un-activated members after 10 days.
it still does exactly the same but this time for vb3

oh yeah, it emails you to tell you who was deleted, emailed so you're always informed.

if you got a big board you can't live without this, it stops the crap from piling up.

anything messes up, i can't take responsibility i'm afraid so back up before you try it.

now save and close cos you're done :cheeky: :bored:

wol stuff been removed due to the fact this should now be in the cron directory and thus won't show up anyway

and now like the days of our youth where everything was free and our mum would have dinner on the table for us, you're done.

this was a fantastic vb2 hack and was made with blood, sweat and tears by Amy, she deserves all the credit for doing a fantastic job and then giving me permission to release this, so please if you install this should your gratitude in her direction as without her it would've been impossible.

the two critical bugs that a/ it wasn't sending the activationid and b/ it was deleting users who didn't change their email correctly, have been squashed by Psico


v2.1: Boofo killed 2 bugs
v2.2: more bugs killed by Boofo
v2.3: bugs killed by psico
v2.3a: bugs killed by sv1cec
v2.4: changed activation code when one exists already removed (sv1cec)
v2.4: better cron logging (me)
v2.4: table prefix bug found by jlurken, fixed by moi
v2.5: email reminder sent to your inbox thanks to sv1vec, improved logging, removed redundant code.
v2.5.2: fixed table prefixes.


YOU WILL NOW NEED TO EDIT THE FILE TO MAKE SURE IT WORKS, IT'S CLEARLY MARKED ON LINE 21

I checked, and yes, you should include the code change suggested in Post 43.

It now shows the proper bbtitle.

Downloaded today and instructions still read :-

"This hack will email members who have not yet activated their accounts and remind them to do so on day 3, 5, and 8. Users who have not activated after 10 days are deleted.

Installation is cake.
1. upload manageActivation.php to your forum director.
2. Create new templates based on the text files enclosed in the zip.
a. Template name = filename.
b. Template contents = file contents.
3. Set up your cron job to run the script once a day. Use vBulletin's default system "Scheduled Tasks"

Time to update !?

Useful hack ... clicked install

Is there any reason, why the e-mail gets send twice? Actually with a difference of one day between the two copies???

I am puzzled, I checked the code and can find any reason why. My cron entry is shown in the attachment and I have disabled to standard e-mail cron script.

Also, I do not get any log entries for the manageActivation. Is this normal or what?

Tnx

No, I have it disabled. And teh e-mails send are twins, I mean they mention the days (It has been 5 days since you registered, and you have not yet activated your account. ).

I am really getting mad with this because I can't find anything that can cause this hack to send the e-mails twice.

if you're using 2.2 or below please upgrade now, it's quite critical, i'm having a few reports of members changing their addresses and everything going crazy. your board will be doomed and your community will die if you do not heed this warning

on another note, just upgrade to 2.3a thanks to sv1cec

Does this tell them on Day 8 that their account will be removed in 2 days if they do not activate the account?

Sabret00the,

I created a test account to verify the warnings send out. Each e-mail was send twice, once on the proper date and one the following day. Here are the timestamps:

1st Action required e-mail: 07/26/2004 11:57
1st Warning e-mail (3 days) : 07/29/2004 11:11
copy of the above : 07/30/2004 11:15
2nd Warning e-mail (5 days) : 07/31/2004 11:55
copy of the above : 08/01/2004 11:16
3rd Warning e-mail (8 days) : 08/03/2004 11:11
copy of the above : 08/04/2004 11:14

Even though I am no php expert, I can't find any part of the hack that could cause this behaviour. At the time being I am creating another test user to try again the whole thing.
