Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Is in Beta Stage  

This hack is based on tnguy3n's original Welcome Thread hack. But rewritten as a vbulletin product. Note that you MUST install this as a product, not a plugin. All credit for the original idea goes to tnguy3n, and this modification is posted with his kind permision.

This hack is currently to be treated as beta code. It has been tested on 2 small forums only at this stage. The hack makes no database changes, so should be reasonably safe on most sites. Installation involves loading the product XML and 1 small template change on the register template.

The product is configured via the VBulletin option pages, a new page is created specifically for this hack. The product supports 2 modes of operation :

1) At registration time, the user is prompted to make their own post. If no text is entered, then default text from the configuration page is used for the title and message body. In this mode, the user can choose not to post a welcome thread if they wish.

2) The second mode just creates a welcome thread for the user from the default title and message body with no user intervention.

Support for this mod will be on a best efforts basis. I will try to fix problems in a reasonable time frame, but due to other commitments, I can make no guarantees.

I can add that option. It is not possible without a code change, but the change is easy. I'll add that option and post a new version sometime tomorrow.

I suggest, for the future version, to activate the "Welcome thread on registration" AFTER the Email Confirmation process are done
therefore no spamming will be created by "testing forum people"
Ciao!

I'll look into this when I have time, I guess that hack must use the same hooks.

I have a number of improvements planned for a future release, so I'll add that to the list. That would probably require a database change, as I would need somewhere to store the message during the registration process.
