Automatic Welcome PM
This Hack will automatically send welcome PMs to new members.
Message Title and Body are Phrases (Varname welcomepm in Phrasegroups EMail Subject Text and eMail Body Text), so you can have Messages in different languages.
You can also specify which User should appear as Sender in vBulletin Options / User Registration Options).

Details
1 Product XML

Contributions
German Language Pack by Metro Man

History
1.0.0
Initial Version

1.0.1
Updated for RC1

1.0.2
Added direct links to the Phrases in vBulletion Options / User Registration Options to make it easier to change the Text.

1.0.3
Fixed a slight Problem that caused PMs not being send under certain conditions

1.0.4
Fixed a Bug that caused PMs not being send on upgraded vBulletin installations.

FAQ
  1. Q: How to I set/change the sender?
    A: Go to ACP / vBulletin Options / vBulletin Options / User Registration Options.
    On the bottom, you will find an input box for the userid that should appear as the sender.
  2. Q: How to I change the message title/body?
    A: Go to ACP / vBulletin Options / vBulletin Options / User Registration Options.
    On the bottom, you will find an input box for the userid that should appear as the sender.
    In the description text for this input box, there are links for changing the text.
  3. Q: When I try to install this, I get "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /includes/functions.php on line xxx".
    What am I doing wrong?
    A: You are trying to import the XML as a Plugin which is wrong. It must be imported as a Product (ACP / Plugin System / Manage Products).
  4. Q: Why does this Hack not work?
    A: Although it is possible that you have discovered a new Bug that causes it not to work, it is more likely that you have made an installation/configuration/customization mistake.
    Before asking for support, please check:
    - Did you enter the Userid of the Sender?
    - Does the sender have permission to use PMs?
    - Does Usergroup registered have permission to use PMs?
    - Are you using the original Phrases?

Please only click Install if you actually have installed/are using this Hack, and click Uninstall whan you don't use it any longer!

It,s in your AdminCP >> vBulletin Options >> User Registration Options

All the way down to the bottom you will see the following:
Automatic Welcome PM UserID

Enter the User ID of the User you would like to appear as sender of the Welcome PM.
To edit the PM Content, click here, to edit the Subject click here.
In the two click here, you are able to edit the PM Content and the Subject.

Hope this helps.

You click on the button on the left of the 2nd box that says "Copy Default Text". It's just under: English (US) Translation (Optional)

This will copy the original text that is above so you can change it. Once done, click Save, and it will save the English version for you...you're done.

Bogus. This Hack doesn't call print_standard_error() anywhere.
