Welcome Thread Upon Registration

This mod creates a welcome thread when a new member registers.

Features controlled via the ACP (See screenshot)

- Thread Title
- Thread Message
- Forum Location
- Post Icon
- Which User Creates Thread
- Thread Placed In Moderation
- Create Thread Before/After Email Activation
- Have a Random Title
- Have Random Thread Content
- Post From a Random Member
- Post a Random Icon

When is the thread created?

You now have the choice via the ACP! A thread can be created as soon as a member registers, or if you use email activation on your board, you can have the thread created once they have activated their email.

Boards that require an admin to approve new users

This mod has an option to place new threads into moderation. Once the new user has been approved via an admin, you can then release the new thread.

New Features in Version 1.2

Does your welcome forum look a little bit "samey" like this?


Same old thread title, same old post icon, same old user posting the thread and when you go inside it has the same old content?

Well maybe I could interest you in the latest version of this mod!



You decide on four titles and the content of four threads! You can also select the UserID's of who you want the threads to be created by. You can also select to have random post icons! - All controlled via the ACP.

Its all random. Thread title one doesnt belong to thread content one and thread title two doesnt belong to thread content two. With this mod when a member registers, thread title one may be posted with the contents of thread content four and thread title three might be posted with thread content two etc. The same goes with the UserID's and the post icon.

Screenshots

The screenshots show the ACP in version 1.2. I was unable to fit it all into one image, so had to split the image in half.

Although I have marked this as supported im a very new coder and this is my first release. I have tested it by signing up over 100 users on my test board and as yet there have been no glitches.
If there are any errors, I will try my best to resolve them, however as being new im still learning the ropes.

Version History
v1.0 - First release 28/05/09 (98 d/l)
v1.1 - Thread creation after email activation added / Post Icon added 28/05/09
v1.2 - Random titles/UserID/Thread content/Post icons 30/05/2009 (49 d/l)
v1.2.1 - Allows you to have the members name created as a link to their profile (88 d/l)
v1.2.2 - Fixed the "unregistered" bug

Same thing with me.

Also is there a way where we can set it so that it just creates one post and not multiple posts?

vB 3.8.3 Database Error

I installed this on my board (vB 3.8.3)

Installation and setup went fine.

However, I have my vB Registration Options configured so that a user must confirm registration through email before registration is complete. When the user clicks the link in the email, they are confronted with a Database error.

The Database error email I get, states the following:

MySQL Error : Table 'XXXXXXXXXX.useractivation' doesn't exist

However, my table name for the useractivation table is XXXXXXXXXX.vb_useractivation.

I tried a test account...got the same database error everyone else is getting when they register.

Disabled your product...and now email confirmation works.

So...it would seem this mod is not compatible with 3.8.3. Currently, your mod is disabled on my board until you can direct me on how to resolve this issue.

Your mod version that I am using is version 1.2.2.

yeah I installed it

but having problems. Does not make the thread. Made some threads at the start, but cant even find them. They do list in the latest threads but are not accessable.

Looks like it is going to go to disable. I really like the idea too.

This mod is working great on 3.8.3 but there is a major bug in it when it posts the new thread it links the admin ip with the new users ip I now have over 400 ip's linked to my account I can see this as causing trouble in the future for banning an ip anyone have a work around for this.

I just tried this as well today but I have had to turn it off.

I was also getting no username in title or the post which makes it look stupid.

Can this be adjusted to where it is not automatic for new registrations but as a pre-template for a particular category in general? Like say, if I have a request section, it will use the pre template when starting a thread in that area and not on new registrations
