This will force new members to fill out an intro when they register to your site. Very handy to make sure they are seen and with luck helps them feel welcome.

To install:
Create a new multiple-line text box profile field with the following settings.
Title: (your choice but should reflect it is intro)
Description: (once again your choice)
Max length: (has to be more then your minimum you will set later)
Field Required:Yes, at registration and profile updating
Private field: yes (can be no if you wish)

Rest of the fields are at your discretion. Make sure you make note of the new field id

Import product-introonregister in Manage Products

Now go to vBulletin Options->Into On Register Option and set the values.

Thats it, I have been using it for some time and thought others may like it.

It is a great idea, although I would rather not 'force' an intro, rather request one - I don't want new users just typing anything in the box to pass validation, resulting in rubbish new threads.

You could always make it an optional field in register set the required to 0 and then if they used it they did if not , not forced?

But I have found those who post rubbish in it also prove what they will contribute to the community.

Hmm I would have to think on it. As it is for introductions I never thought of smiles.

But if they posted : ) it would show as a smile. * will ponder it.

Thank for the info Aniron - and that's a very good point! I hadn't thought about it like that.

I have been trying to make this work as non-mandatory by putting '0' in the minimum required field and setting the entry to optional. When I post anything in the box, I get an error that says, "You must enter at least 0 characters for the intro." Any ideas?
