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!

Have you set up the sender UserID (vBulletin Options / User Registration Options)?
By default this is 0, eg. don't send PMs.

Hmm, should work and does work for me.
Do you have eMail Verification turned on?
Do you moderate New Members?
Are the Plugins (except Uninstall) activated?

It sends the PM in the following situations:
  • If no eMail Verification is required after the Registration is Completed and user is not COPPA/Moderated
  • If eMail-Verification is required after the Acount has been activated and the User is not COPPA/Moderated
  • After a moderated/COPPA User is accepted.

Currently it does not send a PM for Users added through ACP, but I can add support for this too.

Does this mean that it can be triggered on the approval step (moving from group 4 to 2) for moderated users?

Yes, for COPPA/Moderated Users the PM is being send when they are accepted (moved from 4 to 2).

At this rate, we'll soon be able to find out of there's such a thing as too many plugins for vb3.5. 22 and counting here. LOL
