Welcome Thread Redirect by BOP5

This is the VB 4.x thread. The VB 3.8 thread is here although the code is identical:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/misc....o5redirctonreg

Tested With vBulletin 3.8.6 and 4.0.8 and should work with all 3.8/4.0/4.1 versions released to date.

Version 0.9 - BETA. THIS IS BETA SOFTWARE. I have tested it on my test forums and 1 live forum. I do not know of any specific bugs but until I can confirm it works on more forums I will keep it marked as Beta.

Demo: http://www.juot.net/forums/showthread.php?t=19281 (You will have to register to be redirected, obviously.)

The purpose of this mod is to redirect users to a welcome thread after they have registered instead of the normal message vBulletin usually displays. The idea is to make them feel more welcome and a "welcome thread" seems more natural than a cold vBulletin generated message.

This mod can be used two ways. Stand alone this mod will simply redirect users to a specific thread you specify by threadid in the mod options.

The second and more intersting way is to use it as an add-on for another mod, BBR - Welcome Thread Upon Registration which can be found on vBulletin.org at: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=229473. This mod has been designed and tested around version 2.02 of the "Welcome Thread" mod. I do not know if it will work with any other version.

Using it as an add-on this mod will redirect users to their own personal thread upon registration.

If your forum uses Email Verification the redirect will happen after they verify their email address. If you don't use Email Verification they will be forwarded immediately after registration. The mod with auto detect your verification settings.

This mod is NOT intended to be used if "moderating" new members, I haven't tested what would happen if you have moderation enabled.

Be aware the BBR - Welcome Thread Upon Registration mod has at this time has several known bugs mostly relating to Email Activation. This mod does not cause, nor can it fix any of those bugs.

If You intend to use this mod and the "Welcome Thread" mod together you must set your "Welcome Thread" mod to always create the new thread AFTER Email Activation IF you use Email Activation on your forum.

I've done my best to make this mod fail gracefully if a setting is wrong, the user generally won't see an error message but if the settings are wrong they may redirect to a different thread or get a message that a thread is not found, but registration will still complete correctly.

This mod adds 1 phrase to the "Front End - Redirect Messages group which can be customized or translated. This is the message displayed to the user for the few seconds before they are redirected.

Full instructions are in the zip file.

Always do a backup or make sure you have a recent backup handy before installing any new mods. Use at your own risk.

The Fine Print - If any day should come that I haven't logged into vbulletin.org for over 120 days I hereby authorize this mod and any other mods I have posted on vBulletin.org to be designated "re-usable code" status so long as any mods created from them remain free and available on vbulletin.org.

If you come across any problems with this mod please post the exact version of vBulletin you are using, if you are using the "Welcome Thread" mod, If you require Email Activation, and if you're willing, the URL of your forum. This will save me from having to ask you later and prove to me you read this post in full showing me you are worthy of help.

Sorry, changed the mod version in this thread to the actual 0.9.

BirdOPrey5,

Have you considered contacting the author of "BBR - Welcome Thread Upon Registration" to see if he'll let you update and take it over?

Here's the author's vb.org page: BBR-APBT

The author of the welcome thread mod took it down because he was upset with vbulletin, i do not feel he would give permission for someone to re-release it.

I will consider making my own welcome thread mod though.

@craigvm - I deleted your previous post because the only site you could have found the bbr welcome mod at was one that gives away pirated/illegal software and you are now allowed to advertise such sites here.

You should also be very suspect of using mods you find as such sites, they can be edited to include back doors or other malicious code that can compromise the security of your site and its users. I have personally seen mods altered for example to send a copy of the admin password to an email account anytime an admin logs in.

Hey Joe, ya think you can make this compatible with this mod, [OzzModz] Welcome Thread / Post For New Users

Since BBR - Welcome Thread Upon Registration is now in the graveyard.

I think the only major difference is in my mod, the welcome can be a new thread, or a post in a existing thread.
