User Awaiting Moderation Email Notification
Mod Version: 1.3, by Trevor Hannant (IB Staff) Trevor Hannant is offline
Developer Last Online: Feb 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (4 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 39
Released: 01 Apr 2012 Last Update: 29 Mar 2015 Downloads: 173
Not Supported Uses Plugins  

This modification will enable the sending of an email to the email address specified in 'AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options > Email Address to Notify About User Awaiting Moderation' when a users clicks on the Activation link in the registration email.


INSTALLATION


Go to:

AdminCP > Plugins & Products > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]

...and import the 'product-th_moderate_user_email_1-2.xml' file.

Once installed, new options will be available within AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options allowing you to enable this setting. It will only send the email if the following settings are set to Yes:

- AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options > Moderate New Members
- AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options > Verify Email address in Registration


If EITHER of the above settings are set to No, the email will not be sent.

UNINSTALLING

Go to:

AdminCP > Plugins & Products > Manage Products

...and select 'Uninstall' from the dropdown next to the Product.


TRANSLATIONS

The email text uses a new Email Subject Text and Email Body Text Phrase (moderatenewuser). These can be translated within the Phrase Manager into your own language if this is not English.

The AdminCP phrases used are:

- setting_TH_UAME_active_title
- setting_TH_UAME_active_desc
- setting_modnewemail_desc
- setting_modnewemail_title

Note: Although not tested in previous version, given that the code has not changed, it's likely that this will work in previous version including 3.8.x however if there are any issues with previous versions, they will not be supported. If the code changes within the vBulletin core, this product will only be updated for that version onwards.


Versions

1.3 Changed variable names in email body text to account for users ending browser sessions then completing activation.
1.2 Added separate field to allow notifications to be sent to a different address. Removed product dependency.
1.1 Corrected Email Body Text phrase to use AdminCP directory from config.php rather than hard-coded value
1.0 Initial release

Thanks to BirdOfPrey5, Lynne and Paul M for putting me right on some rank stupidity with this...

Not compatable with 4.1.10? Many of us have stopped upgrading at 4.1.10 due to vb not supporting older browsers. 40% of my traffic uses browser that arent supported in 4.1.11

You can remove the Product Dependency from the XML if you wish - see note in original post:

Open the XML file in a text editor and remove this line:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then try the import again.

Well, I guess the answer is 'no', at least, this morning, there were 5 new users in Users Awaiting Moderation, but I didn't get emails for any of them.

So where is the address that controls who gets notified? Can more than one administrators email address be included, or would we need to use a group email address?

What would you like a screenshot of? There's a single 'Yes/No' option added to the User Registration Options settings group, that's all.

Have you set both the following settings to 'Yes':

- AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options > Moderate New Members
- AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options > Verify Email address in Registration

If EITHER of the above settings are set to No, the email will not be sent.

You can have the emails sent to more than one address by entering additional email addresses in:

AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options > Email Address to Notify About New Members

Separate each address in that field with a space.

Excellent! That was where I made my mistake - this had no email address at all. I've just corrected that and now have each of our Administrators email address, separated by a space.

Thank you!!

I marked this MOD as installed and voted it for Best MOD of the Month.

Got our first email notification, but the new registrant isn't in the Users Awaiting Moderation usergroup; they are still in the Users Awaiting Email Confirmation usergroup. I thought that the MOD was triggered only after the registration email confirmation email was acknowledged, moving the registrant into the Users Awaiting Moderation usergroup.

Am I missing something that I need to check on?

Apparently I'm missing nothing. Just got a second email notification (another new registrant), and now going into Moderation > Moderate Users shows both of them. So the MOD is working.

Thank you for a very useful and needed MOD.

The plugin uses the 'register_activate_process' hook location which is called within the ['do'] == 'activate' section of register.php, the only place it's called so the mails shouldn't be generating until that part of the registration process is called on.

Thank you. As I've realized that 'all is working as it should', the first email that I got, and then going into Admin CP > Moderation > Moderate Users which came back with no users to moderate, must have just been a 'timing' issue. As I added to my last post, the MOD is working as designed, and I'm a happy Administrator.
