Released: 01 Apr 2004 Last Update: 06 Dec 2004 Downloads: 32
Not Supported DB Changes  

This hack will send any new users a welcome PM. This will work in vB3 Gold and probably RC versions as well. I will give support for this hack (if it's needed) in this thread.

If you upgraded your vB version and you are using a hack version prior to July 8, 2004:
If you have upgraded vB and your hack version is not July 8, 2004 or newer, run this query (there was a problem with the prior instructions):


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

This hack was last updated: Sun December 5, 2004 at 23:00 PDT
This update has a new on/off switch.

Update includes: vB 3.0.2/3.0.3 instructions

To install follow the instructions in the attached file.

Installation Information
Files to Edit: 1
Queries to Run: 11

Upgrade Instructions:

Open ./register.php and remove the hack (to find the old hack see below). And re-add the updated hack found in the Installation Instructions file.

To upgrade to the December 5th release, you'll need to run these three queries:


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

Uninstall Instructions:

Run the queries in this post, and then remove the hack in register.php (see below).

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

To configure it after installation, go to: Admin CP --> Options --> vBulletin Options --> User Registration Options

Attached is a screen grab of the PM by default and text instructions. If the file appears corrupt, please see this post.

Can we get a screenshot of what the pm would look like?

And could you please put the code in a text file for anyone that wants that?

Thank you, sir.

I was going to do a hack like this myself, but had to stop and remember that I'm an idiot and wouldn't have known where to add this.

Clicks install!

Hehe

It's been on my list of things to do over spring break since the end of my winter holiday; and I'm now finally getting around to it.

*feels happy about releasing first hack to public*

Really nice hack and very friendly to the new users that doesn't know what to do after.

This is your hack, but is it possible to change the welcome text and also translate it to another language, Spanish in my case

See Ya

Of course... see the long line of ////'s that say CUSTOMIZE HERE?

Just translate the variable $pmtext and it will change.

If you want to use the user's username, you can use $username, and if you want their user ID, use $userid.

When you edit the message, make sure you leave it outdented like it is in the default state otherwise your PM will look very strange

I do plan to make these things in the phrase system (or admin cp) in a later version, but I'll need to do some exploration of how do it.

Indeed, but the problem lies in the variables; but I'll see what I can do.

Is there a way to set this up to test it without a new registration?

Not really (for it is in register.php); you can do it on your test board or you can simply create an account and then delete in the Admin CP.

That's ok, I just realized that I can check my sent message folder after the next new registration. See? I warned you I was an idiot.

It actually won't appear in the sent messages folder (I designed it that way for sites that get a lot of traffic because then your PM limit would go through the roof). And, it would be another SQL query

Well, I'll just have to hope the next new user saves the message.

Congratulations on your first hack! An excellent job!
