Very cool!  I installed it (no problems) and set up my welcome templates.  Within just a couple of hours I got a chance to test it with a new member registration.   I rushed to the assigned board, and sure enough, there was a personalized welcome message for my new member.  What a fantastic way to make new members feel welcome.

Thanks so much for this mod!

Installed on 1.1.2 that has 20+ mods installed and installed perfectly.
Tested signing up as a new member and also worked perfectly.

Brilliant way of making new members feel welcome automatically..... but one thing.....

what is the ADD TOPIC function for after you have set up a topic. Is that for setting up a second post whereby you could inform moderators of new members on a Moderator Board, AS WELL as welcoming new members??

Overall a brilliant little mod and also very good where you can add the USERNAME into the post itself to really tailor it to the new member.

Installed without problems, but when I add a new topic, i obtain these errors:
Code: [Select]
http://intranet/index.php?action=welcome;sa=add
8: Undefined offset: 533
File: /var/www/Themes/default/languages/Post.english.php (addtopic sub template - eval?)
Line: 253

http://intranet/index.php?action=welcome;sa=add
8: Undefined offset: 532
File: /var/www/Themes/default/languages/Post.english.php (addtopic sub template - eval?)
Line: 252
Obviously the file Post.english.php contains less then 252 lines, and the Mod does not seem to affect the index.template.php file.

By the way, when a new user registers, nothing happens.... :(

That would be tricky would need to store that a topic has been generated for that user.

The add topic function allows you to create multiple topics. When a user registers it randomly chooses one of the topic texts to use for their post. Kind of makes it more unique and makes the member feel special if you have multiple topic texts to choose from.

hello I love this mod idea.  I installed no problems and was directed right away to the area to make the welcome topics.  I have had a few people that i approved and required their activation.  They completed the process but I do not see the topics being generated in the board I chose, or any board.  Could it be because they were registered already while I was making the welcome topics, or is there a setting I am missing?

Thanks for any feedback  :D

p.s. i used {username} for all the topics

p.s  sorry keep forgeting things. i am default theme 1.1.2 and have about 9 MODS installed

have you checked your database and see if it created a new table called something like, 'smf_welcome'.  If it's missing you might want to try uninstalling and reinstalling?

It's this part that writes to the database - WelcomeTopicsql.php

You'll have to check that through your myphpadmin control panel and in your 'smf' database or whatever you named your database for your forum.

that's weird.  maybe look at all the files that the package modified and see if the changes are indeed there.  i believe the first time I installed it, it installed without any errors, but when i looked at the files, the changes were not there.

I think at this point I will just hope for some guidance. It looks like the changes are there so without any failure messages I don't know what to do. It should be working but it is not. Can someone get back to us with a possible solution?

This mod creates a new topic when a user registers on the forum.

VERY impressed, as always. In my efforts to test it I did note this - which might be important:

I registered an account (though I use member activation) with one browser. Instead of going to the email to click said link I activated the user manually via their profile link. This resulted in no welcome topic. (I then changed the email and reactivated the proper way and, of course, it worked just wonderfully.)

Anyhow, again, impressive as always. This is with somewhere near 100 packages installed and VERY heavily manually modified and yet it didn't break anything.

the link is

As far as activation, i activated all mine the proper way also and not through their profile link.   I am wondering if a 3rd install would just be a waste of time or not.

Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: Filipina on May 12, 2007, 08:55:11 AM
For the first time since installing it (like 100 registrations later) I noticed that it generated 2 welcome messages to the same new sign up.  The topic author was listed as a guest even though I had set it up so I was the sender. I deleted one of the welcome messages. I went to the board to modify the other ( so it would not say guest) and noticed their was a place where you could enter a user name and email as the author?  I tried to enter myself as the author but it would not let me.

Ok.... i am being cheeky here so shoot me if u like....... think its fantastic but can i make a cheeky suggestion should you ever want to update it or make it even better???

Is it possible to multiple posts in multiple boards. So that when a new member joins it will send a post to one board, and a seperate different post to another board or 2?

It is just such a fantastic mod that it would be even better if you could have it automatically post different posts to different board or under different usernames per posting.

Does that make sense??? Cheeky arent I!! Sorry xx

A great mod, brilliant idea.

What can I do to put the link to settings of this mod in my admin panel? (my default language is spanish in the forum) I only see this option when I put the forum in english. In others mods this fix it when I copy some files and change the english.php to spanish.php but with this one I did this with the

WelcomeTopic.english-utf8.php
WelcomeTopic.english.php

and don't fix it.

I hope you understand my poor english.

Thank you.

That is exactly what I wanted. I have a lot of people join but they never post anything. Maybe if they see that people are welcoming them they would post. That is why I want them to receive a notification every time some welcomes them.

Just started using this mod.
Works as expected.

I was wondering if its possible to vary the Welcome message, with a small rotating Welcome message database? So when a New Member signs up, you don't see the same message repeated continually in the forum.

This would give the new member the impression that the admin has taken time to write a personal welcome greeting to them, rather than a robot.

P.S. This mod has increased the activity on my forum.
Thank You

I am very impressed with this mod. Thank you vbgamer45.

However I also have duplicate, actually triplicate welcome posts...

More embarrassing problem is the Welcome posts being posted when member simply changes the e.mail address which then gets activated.

I'll try installing and re-installing it as suggested above to try to eliminate triplicate post.

Any way to remove e.mail address change as a trigger?

Anna
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: TrueSatan on October 17, 2007, 06:32:42 PM
Your triplication suggests that you have multiple installs of this mod in place...you will need to edit your files to remove the unwanted code.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: anna.young on October 17, 2007, 08:00:14 PM
I don't think that  I installed it more than once, however modification.english.php file had four instances of

Code: [Select]
//Begin Welcome Topic Text Strings
$txt['welcome_admin'] = 'Welcome Configuration';
// End Welcome Topic Mod Text Strings

I deleted the duplications leaving only:

Code: [Select]
<?php
// Version: 1.1; Modifications

//Begin Welcome Topic Text Strings
$txt['welcome_admin'] = 'Welcome Configuration';
// End Welcome Topic Mod Text Strings


?>

Is this what I should've done?

Are there any other files that I should correct, TS?

Unfortunately, for you, very much so...yes.

 You had best go to http://modparser.dev.dansoftaustralia.net/ (http://modparser.dev.dansoftaustralia.net/) and put the mod into that system. It only lets you set SMF versions up to 1.1.3 but don't worry about that in this instance. You should set it to show all edits...it will output a list of all the files this mod alters and what the alterations are...you'll have to check and correct each one in turn.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: vbgamer45 on October 17, 2007, 09:07:24 PM
It correctly does not store if a user has got a welcome topic or not yet.
That would preven the duplicate topics from showing.

It was not hard - every file had multiple inserts, I cleaned it up and I hope that this will do the trick with multiple posts.

I learned something new today and bookmarked that Package parser, thanks for the link TS!

Thanks for the mod  vbgamer45, I think it's great!

Now, what about the issue of a change of e.mail that triggers the Welcome Post?  Can anything be done about that?

Anna

Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: vbgamer45 on October 17, 2007, 09:59:55 PM
Would require me to store the member id in a new table whether they have a welcome topic or not.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: anna.young on October 18, 2007, 02:00:58 PM
I think, I understand vbgamer45.  You are saying that without creating another table it is not possible to check user's id against his status as a previously approved/activated member?

In my case, all members get approved.  Perhaps any references to 'activation' could be removed from the mod so only approval action would trigger a Welcome Post.  Unfortunately I have no idea how to translate this into 'php' language.

I am testing this out today, and I can not get a welcome topic to appear on the forum.  The mod installed with no errors, I went into welcome config and selected the board it should appear on.

Then I logged out and registered as a new member and go no welcome topic.  I then tried to register someone manually via admin > registration, and it still wouldn't generate a welcome topic.

Is there a solution or am I missing something important?

Meanwhile I will continue testing at the weekend

Thanks

Hi,

This is a great mod.

We are using SMF 1.1.4 & TP with the Dilber MC theme.

Everything seems to be working fine, but I get this error in the log when a new member registers.

What happens if we put more then one name in the "Poster Name" text box?
For example, AJ, Billy, Jack

It would be great if you could put in a few names for "Poster Name:" and have it randomly pick one.
This way it would not always be the same member starting the welcome topic. :)

Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: vbgamer45 on February 24, 2008, 09:35:31 PM
It would most likely make the postername as "AJ, Billy, Jack" and the user would be a guest post

If we select a user from the Awaiting Approval tab and choose "Approve" from the dropdown, then the welcome topic is created.
However, on my forum we manually review each unapproved profile, then click the "approve" link within their proifle (Account is not approved (approve)).  When done this way, the welcome topic isn't created.

I have this installed recently and just awaiting a new member to join.  We had someone join the other day, and we have member approval in place, so I approved with the 'approve and send email' option, so the member is now showing on the board as the latest member, even though they have not returned to the board yet.  But there is no welcome topic created.  In this situation is it created when the member logs in for the first time or is there something wrong?

Everything installed successfully, settings are ok with board selected, member selected and a couple of topics created.


edited to add:

also is there anyway of directing the member to their own welcome topic when they login for the first time? that might be a pretty big ask  ;D

Software: SMF 1.1.5 and TinyPortal v0.9.8
Theme: default
Mods installed: RSS Feed Icon, RSS Feed Poster, Ad Revenue Sharing, Welcome Topic Mod, Allowed Groups Embedded Flash, Social Bookmarks, Language Drop

I installed the welcome mod without problem, I assigned/ created a welcome board and added a topic. Then I locked out, registered as a new user, activated the account via the email link and ...

Nothing happened, no welcome topic created but also no entries in the error log. As I am on a default theme, what could be the reason ??? Thanks for your help, SY

i installed this, and it works... BUT. if i set it up with {username}, it posts the welcome message to {username} instead of the name of the person who joined.

it's also saying that the thread was created by guest.

i'm a little dense today. i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong.


i figured it out.

Nice mod.. but is there any way to notify user for whom the topic is created.. ie. somehow get his attention.. may be subscribing him to that topic ?

Well.. it will really increase its worth 2X :)

Do you have Member Approval/Email Activation or anythink like that Enabled? Or delete Account Approval too. We will need more information so they could help you better and quicker.

Post by: vbgamer45 on June 07, 2008, 09:50:29 AM
Yes it currently does not check if it was already had a welcome topic. Like if you approve a member then they have to activate it will create two topics.

This has been a great mod - I have used it for some time with no problems.
Now that membership has slowed down I decided to remove it.
It removed the board but I still have the "Welcome Configuration' option in Admin / Configuration
Can you advise how to remove it from the configuration list?

Thanks

Having same results as others posted,  it does say it installed and have setup the message and where to post it, however, after members being activated by admin and sent email, no welcome topic is generated.

Have tried uninstalling, however the option in admin remained, so deleted mod from packages and it let it reinstall, however that did not solve it.

Could it be a mod conflict please?

Installed, worked well, however, when I went to edit (or delete) my welcome message, it would not let me, it gave the following error:

Internet Explorer cannot read this webpage format     HTTP 406

I've since uninstalled, but the admin links are still there.  Would love to install it, and be able to edit the welcome message after it was created.

Please help!
Thanks in advance.

ps. i already tried to install, but messed up my forum in the process (luckily i got it back!)

Well.. it will really increase its worth 2X :)

Hey vbgamer,

Is there a feature such as this or will you be implementing something like this? Will it be easy for me to implement something such as this?

I really would like this mod, but would like to know if it has a notify feature to let the new member know. Maybe via PMing the member?

It posts to a message board of your choice. All members can see the topic.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: mattchewone on February 15, 2009, 04:57:46 PM
Would it be possible for there to be a thread that is available or that is created only for a new member and is visible to them for so long or until read for example.

So it kind of encourages them to read it like rules.

Post by: Niassa on February 15, 2009, 08:06:48 PM
Hrm... I'm wondering if there would be a way to modify this so that it's not required on the member being approved.

Situation:
My board is a pretty small board and all new members need to have been referred by current poster.  Whenever a new person registers they have to wait for admin approval.  We post to the members with the new person's username and email and ask if anyone can "claim" them or whatnot.  Something like this mod would be perfect for that if it can be adapted/modified.

Any suggestions for what I might be able to do for this?

Thanks!  It's a great mod as is, by the way.

Ok here's the deal.  I originally install this version 1.0 and it worked great for the first 7 posts of 7 new members.  Then I disabled registration (because we are using a drupal mod that automatically creates the users in the SMF forum when they register on our drupal site).  I have always been running this drupal mod that does this even when it worked.  So anyways, it stopped working after the first 7 posts.  I have no idea why, I have tried upgrading versions, I have tried reenabling the registration in SMF, I have tried deleting a few other mods (but not all).  It still doesn't work anymore.  I'm lost now and need some help getting this thing running again because it is a truly awesome mod.  Anyways, below is a list of current mods I am running.  Our site can be found at www.bulletproofnerds.com and our forums are located at www.bulletproofnerds.com/smf
Let me know if you need anything else from me to figure this out.  Oh yeah, no errors, everything installed find and worked fine at one point.  I have not edited the code in any way.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function db_query() in /home/petshops/public_html/4petshopsforum/Sources/WelcomeTopic2.php on line 324

Ok here's the deal.  I originally install this version 1.0 and it worked great for the first 7 posts of 7 new members.  Then I disabled registration (because we are using a drupal mod that automatically creates the users in the SMF forum when they register on our drupal site).  I have always been running this drupal mod that does this even when it worked.  So anyways, it stopped working after the first 7 posts.  I have no idea why, I have tried upgrading versions, I have tried reenabling the registration in SMF, I have tried deleting a few other mods (but not all).  It still doesn't work anymore.  I'm lost now and need some help getting this thing running again because it is a truly awesome mod.  Anyways, below is a list of current mods I am running.  Our site can be found at www.bulletproofnerds.com and our forums are located at www.bulletproofnerds.com/smf
Let me know if you need anything else from me to figure this out.  Oh yeah, no errors, everything installed find and worked fine at one point.  I have not edited the code in any way.

"(because we are using a drupal mod that automatically creates the users in the SMF forum when they register on our drupal site). "

That is the issue you would have to create the welcome topic on drupal's side.

Then why did the Welcome Topic mod work fine for the first couple of weeks?  Whether people are manually creating accounts in SMF or drupal is creating the accounts in SMF it shouldn't make any difference.  The fact remains that the accounts are being created in SMF which should then trigger the Welcome Topic mod...as it did correctly for the first couple of weeks.  Any other ideas or would you like more information about my situation?

Yes i have also installed and tried and do not find any username displayed.

So what could be the either option to display it.

See i have a question now.

When i see members on moderation queue and activate them.

I get there username where iam using [username] .

It is not working only if members register and activate themselves.

I am seeing exactly the same behaviour on SMF 2.0 RC1

This does suggest there is a bug in associating [username] with the member's user name - at least two versions of SMF (1.1.8 and 2.0 RC1) are being reported as having this error.

Question - is it possible that the admin permissions of the "announcement posting user" has an effect on this - I am using a non-admin account as the poster for the announcements.

Question - is there a typo in the instructions / help popup surrounding the code [username] - i.e. is the syntax really something like [member_name] instead?

I like this mod however since I installed RC1 2.0 it will show the message like this.

It will not change the username to the name selected by the user. What can I do?
I tried to uninstall but I get an error and I am afraid of messing up my board.

Please help!!!!!


Thought you should know: I am using theme albino from Crip. Do I have to manually install something? Now with that error message I am stuck and don't know what to do.

Impossible to get some support on this mod?? First I have tried the mods site, with no luck now this site with no luck???

Anyways, I really like the mod and would like to get it working properly as I am sure it is something simple in the coding, which I am clueless.

Today a member hadn't activated his account, so I did, then noticed that the mod worked correctly?? Why is it, when a member activates hes account his name doesn't show up in the welcome topic but when I activate a member manually it does??

You got lucky I guess. The same happened to me but the topic was placed just like if the new member would have done it himself.

You are right it has to be something really simple. I just don't know anything about this stuff.

I do like this MOD but it is uninstalled until further developments.

Crank! - it's on the regular mod page linked from the first post in this topic

It's now v 2.0.2 (previously was 2.0.1)

I've just uninstalled 2.0.1 and deleted it from an RC1 install (came out cleanly) and installed the new version - went in cleanly and recovered the new member post settings, but I had to reapply which board and poster - no big deal.

Now to wait for a new member and see if it's all fixed.

Thanks Gaz.

I thought I was on another MOD that I have a problem with. This is no biggie. I am sure it will work. The other one that does not work good is the advanced reputation system for 2.0rc1


I will re-install and see, maybe I will register someone myself to find out if it works or not. ;)

Post by: Crank! on March 15, 2009, 10:01:46 AM
Well, I registered a fake name and no post.

Also after I installed it I added a new topic and when I submitted it the screen went crazy. There are some bugs with this mod still.

I wish I could have captured the screen but when I decided to do it it was too late. I am uninstalling again until further developments.

Thanks for trying though it is a great mod when it works. 1.18 works good with it I dunno why it won't work with 2.0 yet.

There is something weird going on with the mod and 2.0rc1 in my system. I uninstalled it again.

I will install and wait until tomorrow to mess with it again.

I ha one more guy sign up today and I had it uninstalled.

Maybe through the night someone else will sign up. I have set up an obscure board that I am the only one th at has access I will direct the sign up there and see. but to answer your question yes I selected a board and made the aditional topic. That is when I had issues with it. Try that and look at the message that it gives you when you finish making the additional topic. It says something about the database being too busy and some file is missing. I will try to capture the screen when it happens so you can iron out the issue.


Ok I just installed it and tried to edit the welcome topic. I received this message after editing.


An error has occured

There was a second line but I lost it. This was all within the forum itself not a white page or anything like that. It just says that there is something wrong there. That all

The install I reported a few posts above, worked perfectly over the last 24 hours - vbgamer knows I won't spare the criticism if something is broken, so on this occasion it's a hearty "WELL DONE vb - what ever you did to fix it has worked like a charm"

(psst - now could you do something about the formatting for your paypal button and ad links in your mod control panels?  It looks flaming awful and irritates the heck out of me whenever I have to go into admin)


.... I have set up an obscure board that I am the only one that has access I will direct the sign up there and see. but to answer your question yes I selected a board and made the aditional topic. That is when I had issues with it.

I think you might find it needs to post to a publicly visible board - i.e. no view or read or access restrictions.

On our forums, regular members with zero posts and no selectable membergroup, are named as "registered lurkers" in their post-based group - they have almost the same permissions as unregistered guests and only get to see a few extra boards until they start posting.

If your welcome-poster account sends the welcome post to a board that only you can see, then be sure your welcoming-poster has the appropriate permissions to see and post in that board, and that the new member being welcomed can also see it - just in case the issue is permissions related.


Try that and look at the message that it gives you when you finish making the additional topic. It says something about the database being too busy and some file is missing. I will try to capture the screen when it happens so you can iron out the issue.

Database being too busy is unlikely to be purely down to the mod - how much memory is allowed for your overall forum script by the SMF settings, and by your hosts?  Have you run your hosting cPanel to check server load?  Maybe you've got a hacker/spammer hammering the hel_l out of your server resources?  It happens - we had it happen twice last year and were checking everything but server resources - it was the hosts who identified what happened.

This is just one of my bright ideas from sitting for too long in the bathroom ;)

Any chance the mod at some future update, could be expanded a little so the new member is automatically subscribed to their welcome thread?

Reasoning - my board is quite small right now - just over 100 registered members, with only about 25 of them active.  If the new member was auto-subscribed to the new welcome topic for their user name, it might prompt them to post a response when the other members leap in to say welcome.  Getting them to make that first post and get engaged with the already active bunch seems to be the biggest hurdle to getting them active.

As I say, just a thought and no big deal if cannot be done - maybe it could be via an admin option to attribute the welcome topic post to the new member themselves, with regular admin settings to auto-subscribe to topics they've posted in?

Not possible since the username does not exist. You would need to select another account to make the post.

Well the solution would be to just register a new account and have it post the post and just select an avatar for it.

Did the creator consider recreating, or adding, a choice for certain groups only?

Im running a clansite, where guests can register to discuss gaming issues, but mainly we are "alone" on the site...meaning: mostly new members are new members of the Clan.
I have used the script to auto-create a welcome topic, based on its a new Clanmember joining.. and the topic are posted in a restricted area, which is quite annoying to the honered guests.

Hi,
    Could someone explain to me with this Mod what i put in the "Poster Name" in the welcome configuration area. I have almost got this working the way i want. I tried putting my name in there but it showed me as a guest instead of the admin. Should this Mod work automatically as and when a new member joins without any intervention from the admin ? This one has me totally baffled.
Any Help Would be Appreciated.   :)
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: vbgamer45 on October 23, 2009, 09:22:35 AM
Mod should work automatically depending if member approval is turned on or not.


If the poster name does not exist it will be marked as a guest otherwise if the memer does it exist it will look like an actual member.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: Diamond Isle on October 23, 2009, 09:27:35 AM
ok so what do we have to put in the poster name box, do we leave this blank ?
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: Diamond Isle on October 23, 2009, 09:32:47 AM
Basically what i want it to do is this - whan a new member registers they will see this message
Please welcome our newest member {Members Name}

but instead all i am getting is
please welcome our newest member
and shows me as creating the posts but as a guest ?

Great Mod and Thanks! Installed & working fine in 2.0 RC1.2..

I have read through every single post here and was looking for a solution with what a lot of users are asking for "How can we automatically direct the new member to see their new welcome post"

vbgamer45 has asked that members add this request to his page.  I've seen that many have since this mod came out 2007.  That's a long time to wait!!  He said it was possible but will not do it.

This mod would be PERFECT if this feature was added
What is the point of having these welcome messages if the new member does not see it right away.

How will they know they got a message??  Just makes sense and make the new members want to post a thank you making the forum more active for us.

I do love this mod & respect the creator's work but why not add this NEEDED feature that so many of us have asked for many times.

Does anyone know a way to make this happen with this mod?? Maybe other members have help to offer.

Thanks All!

Oh well Wish I knew about this coding thing.. shouldn't be but a few lines I suppose.. I'll wait until someone can do it for free. Don't think it's worth me paying for it's not that big of a deal... I'll see how the mod works for my site..

Hi thanks for the update.

i was well chuffed when i saw that you had updated this Mod.
I'm sure in the last version there was a help button which showed what code to put in i.e {username} has that been left out deliberatley? only when i hit edit topic i get this error message "Invalid value inserted or no type specified. " I am just off to sign up as another user to test this again but I have just tried to add another topic and used the same code as before {username} when I try to add the topic I get the above error.

Hope this feeback is useful.

I would try uninstalling then signuping a new person and see if it sill posts the welcome message! If it does there is still code left around that will need to be manually uninstalled.

Ok if I uninstall it completely it still make one post for a new members  :(

Post by: vbgamer45 on December 14, 2009, 08:54:31 AM
Ok so if the welcome topic mod is no longer installed then an old version must still be present.

Run the parser on the mod site for the welcome topic mod and find and revert all the edits that the mod does.

When a new person registers it's not counting the posts. Or showing new topic but it's creating a new topic.

Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0 RC2!
Post by: vbgamer45 on December 18, 2009, 08:13:52 PM
Not at this time. Since only the username is able to be chosen on registration and not their displayname
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0 RC2!
Post by: Bass_Chaz on December 18, 2009, 08:34:44 PM
But if they can choose a membername and the database has that info, could it not be displayed?

I require all users to have a username AND a display or membername name.

(but now that I look closer its not a requirement...)



I'd prefer to show the display or membername as it could get REALLY confusing to the membership as to who is who...
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0 RC2!

Post by: Kimmie on January 14, 2010, 04:47:10 PM
ok this may be a dumb question..lol but Im gonna ask it anyways.

I am confused as to the "IP Address" aspect of this and how it is supposed to work. I created a user account and is the one I have set up to post the welcome threads.

1.  The IP listed on the account profile says:
IP: 127.0.0.1
Hostname: localhost

2. However, the IP's that appear in each of the welcome threads is always different and is generally either the same IP as the member that just registered, or within that same range (however I have seen it show completely different ranges but were always the same ISP as the member).


When I look up the IP that appears on the profile page the info I get on it is

IP                  ISP                   Domain
127.0.0.1      LOOPBACK   STERLINGSTUDENTS.NET


So what gives? Just exactly how is this supposed to work and who are "sterlingstudents.net"?


Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0 RC2!
Post by: vbgamer45 on January 14, 2010, 07:34:26 PM
127.0.0.1 is your local ip address of your own computer/server. This is not a real ip address of a person.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0 RC2!
Post by: Kimmie on January 15, 2010, 12:09:19 AM
127.0.0.1 is your local ip address of your own computer/server. This is not a real ip address of a person.

k well that answers one question but still doesnt really explain to me how it works. :). Any idea who "sterlingstudents.net" is? I guess what I need to know is, what is the exact protocol of how the mod works? Why is it pulling my local pc ip? If it uses the new members IP to post the thread, then shouldnt it show that IP on the profile? (i.e. it would change with each new member that it makes a thread for). If this is the hosts local server ip, cant we get into trouble for that? Using their IP without permission I mean?

Sorry for all the questions.. just want to make sure I completely understand how it works. :)

vb - help a confused old fuddyduddy please

I've installed v2.0.3 (or .4) of this, after doing the edit to the XML to add the database prefix, and it's working fine.

BUT, the package manager is showing it's v 1.7 that's installed - and it's showing that with a green light as the latest version of the mod (I'm running SMF 2.0 RC2)

How do I get the mod to auto-upgrade (via a 1-click process) in the same way that it did back on the 1.x series of SMF ?
Am I going to have to uninstall, delete files, upload new files, install blah blah, or have I got something not right here?

Cheers
Gaz

I have the same request for this, as I made on the PM to new members...

Would it be possible to implement an option, to either choose to send to only selected member groups, and/or to create separate messages to be sent to new members depending on which member group they are added to upon joining the site?

I'd like to use this on my RPG forum, but I'd like to have selected options, for example:

Player accounts are welcomed, a thread created where they can introduce themselves and meet other people of the forum and just chat and get to know each other. However, I'd like to have the option to disable it for any other member group, as I don't want the forum filling up with threads every time a Persona is created and linked to the main account [Subaccounts mod in use]

Would this be possible? Beyond just mass-deletion of additional threads, which I'd like to avoid having to do, if possible.

ooh, if it's request time, i have one -
i  am setting up a cron job to move members from one group to another based on a date (their initial group is future, then they are moved to current, then when they leave they change a final time to past). would it be feasible to set the welcome topic to activate at the same time, so that as they join a new group they get another activation/notificiation email sending them to the new welcome...?

that would be the bee's knees :)

I only asked about the boardname because sometimes people might change the name of their forum but forget to update things like this since as it stands the site name if included would need to be "hard coded" in to the message.

Anyway, if you decide at some point to put it in great, if not no big deal I suppose.

It literally says Welcome {username} << not filling in the user name. I even used {$member.name} and still not working.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

did you ever find a way to make it subscribe or notify the new user to this automatically created topic?

thats too bad.. that would be sooo much better :)  it would instantly give the user email reply notifications and get them connected with the users on the community immediately.

can you put [username] in the  "poster name" in settings? would that work?
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0 RC4!
Post by: 3mrhythm on January 16, 2011, 06:22:41 PM
lol i just tried that and i made the user name who posted it "[username]" and it posted it as a guest
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0 RC4!
Post by: 3mrhythm on January 16, 2011, 06:39:35 PM
is there a way for the  poster name function to call for the member with the highest user id number and input that as the poster name.. that way the last person to register would have the highest number id.. therefore could be the user ID of the "poster name".. making the newly registered user the poster :)

does that sound feasible?

This thread is named for SMF 2.0 but it was linked from where I downloaded this mod for 1.1.x so i do apologize if I am in the wrong area.

First, I love the mod and it works wonderfully.  I don't want to sound like I am begging for changes to be made but some assistance and direction would be wonderful from anyone who could provide. 

I am currently seeking a way to have a new registered user automatically setup to receive notifications from their newly created welcome thread.  I have found that my new members don't actively monitor their welcome threads and they go unattended for weeks at a time when they are first becoming accustomed to the lifestyle within a forum.  I have things setup so personal interaction takes place in welcome topics.

Thanks for any assistance that anyone can provide.

Not possible since the user does not enter a display name on registration

is there a way to make the newly registered user make the post? rather than picking an account?

there has to be a way to do that.. probably a function to pic the last registered user as the poster  like it does to choose the name it uses for the welcome post..  making that happen is beyond me.. but it seems feasible :)  lol is it?

Here's a suggestion for a small improvement to this excellent mod, when it runs could the welcome topic be set to notify the new member for replies?

If not possible then perhaps a new mod to allow Admins to set a notification for a member. We can turn them off but not turn them on.

I think some member might be annoyed by that.
True but they would be able to disable the notification just like any member can.

The reason I suggested it is that we get some new members who join, see the welcome topic and go away, if they were prompted automatically by further welcomes from other members they may be more inclined to post a reply.

This mod did not work for me on 2.0RC5.

A new user registered, and the topic was created, but instead of the members name, it showed {username}. There are no errors in the log, and no problems installing it.

Any ideas what went wrong?

Love the new mod.  I just noticed that when an existing member changed his email address and validated the link, then it generated the welcome topic   :D

Any work around for that? 

Same problem here. Looks kinda silly when members are greeting existing members as new members when they change their email address. Perhaps a method to check the [username] for original registration date less than the email change date to omit the topic post?

Quote
Error in Package Installation
At least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF.

Would it be possible to have the welcome topic post not only include the username but actually include custom profile fields in this mod? I'm assuming some manual additions would have to be made depending on the name of the custom field in your sql database, but still.

I like this post, also the idea feature of notification to the client who registered sounds good too saying "Welcome client, you have a new post created for you", etc? Imagine a big version update!

Also the below sounds good too

Great Mod and Thanks! Installed & working fine in 2.0 RC1.2..

I have read through every single post here and was looking for a solution with what a lot of users are asking for "How can we automatically direct the new member to see their new welcome post"

vbgamer45 has asked that members add this request to his page.  I've seen that many have since this mod came out 2007.  That's a long time to wait!!  He said it was possible but will not do it.

This mod would be PERFECT if this feature was added
What is the point of having these welcome messages if the new member does not see it right away.

How will they know they got a message??  Just makes sense and make the new members want to post a thank you making the forum more active for us.

I do love this mod & respect the creator's work but why not add this NEEDED feature that so many of us have asked for many times.

Does anyone know a way to make this happen with this mod?? Maybe other members have help to offer.

Thanks All!

I have both mods installed...and when people register thru the site...they get a welcome message in the forum. But when they register via Facebook Connect...and log into the forums for the first time....there's no welcome message.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  LOVED this mod since it came out, by the way!  Would love for it to work with Facebook Connect, though...if possible.

Hello
I have a question about the mod welcome By vbgamer45

Is it possible to set it so that new members immediately go in to the newly created welcome posting.
For now, the posting is created but the new members first come on the general forum and see the hole forum as new and unread
The chance that these new members than go to the welcome posting is therefore small.
It is this mod for 1.1.16

Not possible since the user does not enter a display name on registration
They do if the site is using Display Name on Registration Mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1747) like our site.

I'm in the same boat. I'd really love it if it called the Display Name rather than the log in name, since I also use this mod.

Can this mod be enhanced to welcome new members of a membergroup and welcome topic created for more than one board?

Is it possible to set it so that new members immediately go in to the newly created welcome posting.

I'd like either this or, alternatively, if the new member could be automatically subscribed to this topic, so that they'll know when other members have replied to welcome them. That might be easier to code?

For 2.0 make sure you use [username] for personalization


Hi vb.

Why this?

Thanks.

Hi, just installed ok on 2.0.4 - thx.

Not a complaint but I thought there would be an auto feature when a new member first activated their acct, would insert the name and send based on the template - no?

Also, how will the new member know you created this post for them? Do they get a pm?
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: vbgamer45 on March 11, 2013, 01:27:11 PM
It should create a topic when activated/member registers.

No pm is sent. It just creates a post.

But upon each new member registering/activating, then I have to open this up, choose the welcome message template, choose the username to send to etc. The new topic or "post" isn't done automatically?

As I say, I'm not complaining, just want to know what I've got to manually do each time to make it happen :)

I'm in the same boat. I'd really love it if it called the Display Name rather than the log in name, since I also use this mod.

Yes, it is possible. the following worked for me;
in Forums/Sources/Managemembers.php

Search for: // Welcome Topic Mod
Then 16 lines below this, change
'subject' => str_replace("{username}",$member['username'],$row2['welcomesubject']),
'body' => str_replace("{username}",$member['username'],$row2['welcomebody']),

to

'subject' => str_replace("{username}",$member['name'],$row2['welcomesubject']),

So ya, for the first time ever I ran in to something weird.

Had a new member sign up yesterday and they didn't get a welcome topic made for them.

Other than mod conflicts which I am not sure if that's what caused this one time fluke, what might also cause the post to not be made ?

Ps; I say one time fluke since I am hoping the next new member gets a post made for them.

Pss; For members "missed" is there a way to "force" the post to be made for them aside from just manually making one up / typing it out ?

Ty.

Great mod - thanks!!

I've been using it on my SMF 1.1.x forum for the last few years and have just installed it on my new SMF 2.0.4 forum.

For my SMF 1.1.x forum I solved the problem of a Welcome Topic being created for members who re-activate their account after they change their email address by checking their last login time (it will only be empty for new members).

To manually apply this fix for SMF 2.0.4 make the following changes in ./Sources/Register.php

Find
Code: [Select]
SELECT id_member, validation_code, member_name, real_name, email_address, is_activated, passwd, lngfileReplace
Code: [Select]
SELECT id_member, validation_code, member_name, real_name, email_address, is_activated, passwd, lngfile, last_login
Find
Code: [Select]
    // Let the integration know that they've been activated!
    call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));
// Welcome Topic Mod
global $sourcedir;
require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);

// End Welcome Topic Mod
Code: [Select]
    // Let the integration know that they've been activated!
    call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));

    // Welcome Topic Mod
    if (empty($row['last_login']))
    {
        global $sourcedir;
        require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');
        DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);
    }
    // End Welcome Topic Mod

vbgamer45  old friend, long time no talk. :)

Is there a way to set the new topic so it is posted by the new member?
I thought there used to be a mod that did that back in the day, but can not find it now.
Was just hoping you might be able to help edit this mod to do so. :)

Rather than do this I decided to have the new member's name link to their profile in the welcome message.

I find it handy to be able to see a new member's profile as I have some mandatory registration fields like location and country and many members update their profile the first time they login (I also have it set that guests cannot see any member profiles).

To implement this change do the following:

In the DoWelcomePost function of ./Sources/WelcomeTopic2.php

FIND
Code: [Select]
global $smcFunc, $modSettings, $sourcedir;


ADD AFTER
Code: [Select]
global $scripturl, $title;



FIND
Code: [Select]
$memberName = $memRow['real_name'];
}


REPLACE WITH
Code: [Select]
$memberName = $memRow['real_name'];
}
else
{
$result = $smcFunc['db_query']('',"
SELECT
id_member
FROM {db_prefix}members
WHERE REAL_NAME = '$memberName' LIMIT 1");
$memRow = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($result);
$smcFunc['db_free_result']($result);

$memberID = $memRow['id_member'];
}



FIND
Code: [Select]
'body' => str_replace("[username]",$memberName,$row2['welcomebody']),
REPLACE WITH
Code: [Select]
'body' => str_replace("[username]",'<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=profile;u=' . $memberID . '"' . $title . '>' . $memberName . '</a>',$row2['welcomebody']),

Yes - and it would be easy enough to implement that but I wouldn't feel comfortable with attributing a post to someone who didn't actually make it.

Since installing Welcome Topic Mod 2.2 replacing 2.1 I now get 2 identical welcome messages posted. Nothing shows in the error log. Any ideas on a fix?
Thanks, great mod by the way. ;)

Did you uninstall the old version? If not uninstall the new version and then uninstall the old version. Then install the new version
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: Road Rash Jr. on June 29, 2013, 11:12:15 PM
Yes I uninstalled 2.1 then installed 2.2.

Post by: vbgamer45 on July 15, 2013, 11:45:29 AM
The only part would cause that would be duplicate code in the forums somewhere if you know the exact action we can narrow it down to a file.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: Road Rash Jr. on July 15, 2013, 12:31:03 PM
I'm not sure what you mean by "exact action" as the only "action" would be when the member activates their account or are approved for access they get a welcome message. Nothing has been added to the forum in ages except changing from Welcome Topic 2.1 to 2.2. 2.1 was uninstalled and deleted then 2.2 was uploaded and installed. Then it started to produce 2 welcome messages. So I uninstalled 2.2, deleted that and re-uploaded 2.2 and installed. Now it is producing 3 welcome messages. Not being a coder I have no idea what is duplicated nor where to find it.

1001 Thanks for this mod!

Just installed it. Great!

Just one thing, it happens that I get 2 Welcomeposts at the same time for the same new member. I am sure you can give a blind a good hint, what he did wrong.

Thanks a lot for your help!
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: vbgamer45 on August 31, 2013, 02:01:01 PM
Do you know how they were activated? Or did the mod install twice?
How does registration work for forum and what SMF version
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: sangham.net on September 02, 2013, 09:03:44 AM
Thanks a lot for your care and further questions, vbgamer45.

Do you know how they were activated?
The actual case activated via verification email and and was registered manual form the board before. 

Or did the mod install twice?
When viewing "Browse Packages" it show it only one time. Or is there another way to prove that?

How does registration work for forum
Nothings special. You can register and you would get a verification email. Once you approve the link in your email you are in.

what SMF version
2.04

Thanks a lot, and I hope I could give enough and the right info's.

Thanks a lot for your hint, Branko! There is something in this mentioned file what looks like this a little, althrough its not total identical. If that is the "bad" stuff, which part should be deleted? The 1st or the 2nd?
Thanks for advices!

Code: [Select]
// Welcome Topic Mod

if (empty($row['last_login']))
{

global $sourcedir;
require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);

}

// End Welcome Topic Mod

// Welcome Topic Mod
global $sourcedir;
require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);


// End Welcome Topic Mod

In the mod's settings, is there 1 or 2 topics set up?

Thanks a lot BurkeKnight for your care. Just one. But I can remember that I changed the "Forum" and so saved altogether the settings 2 times. Maybe that is the reason for this issue and the setting it self might be a kind of installation?

I have not been able to get this mod to work. I decided to use the Manual Install Instructions for SMF 2.0.6

I have found a conflict in the following code:

./Sources/Register.php

Find: [Select]
// Let the integration know that they've been activated!
   call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));
Add After: [Select]


              // Welcome Topic Mod
   global $sourcedir;
   require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');
            
   DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);
   
   
   // End Welcome Topic Mod
   

Find: [Select]
SELECT id_member, validation_code, member_name, real_name, email_address, is_activated, passwd, lngfile
Add After: [Select]
, last_login

Find: [Select]
// Let the integration know that they've been activated!
   call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));
Add After: [Select]


   // Welcome Topic Mod

   if (empty($row['last_login']))
   {

      global $sourcedir;
      require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

      DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);

   }

   // End Welcome Topic Mod


Since there is only one intance of;
 // Let the integration know that they've been activated!
   call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));

Which of the Welcome mods is used and if both which one is first?

I would really like to get this mod to work on my site.

Thanks
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: ftab4me on November 15, 2013, 09:15:47 PM
The answer to my previous post is none of the above. To the author, I am running 2.0.6 and for whatever reason the install used "WelcomeTopic2rc4.xml". This file appears to be quite different than the previous install files. To get this to work, I manually used the instructions in "WelcomeTopic2.xml". The one change is in "$sourcedir/Register.php" Look for

Let the integration know that they've  been activated! call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));
 
instead of

Let the integration know that they've been activated!
   if (isset($modSettings['integrate_activate']) && function_exists($modSettings['integrate_activate']))
      call_user_func($modSettings['integrate_activate'], $row['member_name']);

For those of you attempting to use the "WelcomeTopic2.xml" as a guide as I did to get this mod to work, rememmber that when the code says before it means paste the code after the found search string and after means paste the code before the found search string.

Good luck!
   
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: Arantor on November 15, 2013, 09:19:15 PM
That's because this code:
Code: [Select]
Let the integration know that they've been activated!
   if (isset($modSettings['integrate_activate']) && function_exists($modSettings['integrate_activate']))
      call_user_func($modSettings['integrate_activate'], $row['member_name']);

used to exist in SMF 2.0 RC3 and below and was changed in 2.0 RC4 to the code you see now.

The install likely used the wrong version if you set it to 'emulate 2.0 RC3' or lower through Admin > Main > Packages > Browse Packages (advanced link at the bottom of the page)
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: ftab4me on November 15, 2013, 10:10:33 PM
Arantor,

Thank you for the reply. I just looked where you suggested and it says;

Emulate Version: SMF 2.0.6

All I know is that the manual install instructions in the package download and WelcomeTopic2rc4.xml match and do not appear to work at all. When I did the manual changes using  WelcomeTopic2.xml as a template, the mod is now working. Just thought the author and  other users would want to know what worked for me.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: vbgamer45 on November 16, 2013, 12:34:40 AM
WelcomeTopic2.xml is for 2.0.x the other RC4 version is for older SMF 2.0 RC versions

Best way to always be sure is check the package-info.xml and find the one that matches the right version.

Installed this mod: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=789

And I create the message it needs to make in threads.
It does that, but instead of the name of the user who registers, it just keeps it as {welcome} and it doesnt replace the tags with the name of the user who just registered. What am I doing wrong?

This is what it gives me when it creates a thread when someone registers...

Dear Mod-Team and Supporter,

yesterday I had the case that a member (long time registered, before the mod was created as well) changed his email address and after that a automatically "Welcome message" was created.

He felt understandable a little curious, maybe even controlled. Not sure if such is normal and usual caused by the function of the mod or a special case.

Its not that dramatically, but thought that if would be no failure to report such phenomena, maybe solve it or make use of it further, since it is actually nice if older members have the chance to get welcomed if the enter some kind anew.

Thanks, if telling, if there is any I should take care of. And lot of gratitude for your mod, we appreciate it very much.

I'm still not convinced you're entering the right value into the "Poster Name" field, even though you said you've tried it.

I believe it should be a name, not a link.

Both those have been pointed out previously and the response was along the lines of "tried that".

The posting isn't a problem, and it does insert the name correctly - it just posts two of the same post for each new member.

I seem to have cured the 2x posting.

It happens if you set registration for email activation as it causes both sections of Welcome Topic Mod code to fire.  So I removed the lower one as the top one is only activated when a user clicks on their email activation link.

There are 2 entries in Sources/Register.php

    // Welcome Topic Mod

    if (empty($row['last_login']))
    {

        global $sourcedir;
        require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

        DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);

    }

    // End Welcome Topic Mod

// Welcome Topic Mod
    global $sourcedir;
    require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');
               
    DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);
   
   
    // End Welcome Topic Mod

So I removed the bottom one, so I'm left with this ...

    // Welcome Topic Mod

    if (empty($row['last_login']))
    {

        global $sourcedir;
        require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

        DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);

    }

    // End Welcome Topic Mod

Seems to have worked  :) .

I'm using this mod with the mention username mod but it doesn't mention the username in the thread.

All I want to do is sending mail to the user letting him know that a welcome with his name is created. So he check his welcome topic. And read further instructions written in the topic.

Thanks.

Sorry I couldn't explain it properly.

Actually I was talking about this www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=522005.0 to work with welcome topic mod.

Detailed info here
I'm using the welcome topic mod which creates a new thread automatically when s user get registered.
Everything works fine in that mod, in this mod.

But if I want to mention newly registered member in that automatically created thread then this mod doesn't work.

I use @[username] in that thread to mention the newly registered member. [username] automatically gets replaced with the actual username but in that thread no users link appears(mention doesnt work)

Please help in solving this issue.
Thanks. :)

Thanks :)

Check your Sources/Register.php to make sure the mod edits have taken hold. There's a couple of other files affected but that one should ensure the mod application edits went through.

I have looked in the sources/register.php and using textpad i searched the word welcome
This is all i found
   'send_welcome_email' => !empty($modSettings['send_welcomeEmail']),

Does that mean its not added it ?

You can upload the mod to http://www.smfhacks.com/smf-package-parser.html
And make sure all the edits are done on the SMF files
Title: Re: Welcome Topic updated for SMF 2.0!
Post by: Shambles on March 18, 2015, 09:55:33 AM
There should have been a couple of edits to that file (and other edits to other files) - it certainly explains why you aren't getting welcome posts made ;)

I'd say the mod wasn't completely installed. You could do worse than editing the files yourself, as per the instructions in the mod parsing system, or try uninstalling/reinstalling it.

We've seen occasions where mod edits haven't been performed during installation - can't recall the full details but it's usually related to not having sufficient permissions to the filestore, often as a result of not actually owning the filestore/filesystem.

Who's hosting your website?

Hello! I am having a major brainfart this evening. First off, let me say that this is one of, if not my favorite mod. I have built several sites with SMF, and this one is always the first to be added to it. Im sure this question has been answered, and i have searched through this entire thread looking for that answer, which i have apparently overlooked. This is the first time this has happened, so i have no clue how to fix it. i am getting a double post to welcome new members. I have tried everything i can think of to fix it, but to no avail. Can anyone point me to the answer to this issue?


 and, as always.... thanks for a spectacular mod!

Valued creator of "Welcome Topic",

longer time enjoying this great mod, one likes to ask: Would it be possible to get the Users Profil page as a link behind his name into the post?
When meeting someone new, people would like to look at his profile first and it would be easy if it would be provided within this welcome Topic. One Idea would be a special mod, of cause but maybe WelcomeTopic-Creator have other hints and supply's.

Thanks for you hints and generosity in advanced

What else could be causing me to get duplicate posts every time? I really need to get this resolved. The site just opened and i am getting a lot of new members and I have been having to go back in and delete all the duplicate posts.

I am having difficulty getting this mod to work. It's a new forum just getting off the ground. I am new to SMF so I have been doing things really slowly and carefully.

I'm running 2.0.10 hosted on Netfirms.

Other Packages installed:
Default Avatar    2.3
FantasticSmileys 1.0
Karma Buttons 1.1
Simple Audio Video Embedder    3.2
RSS Feed Poster 4.1

I installed it once and it appeared to work ok but there was no option to change setting after the initial set during install. I uninstalled it and tried to reinstall it. This is where it all went wrong.
I got an error message which I traced to a difference in the number of spaces one of the lines searched for was tabbed in. I edited my file to match and the install seemed to run ok but no topics were created. This time I used the parser and manually edited everything back to normal and deleted any uploaded files one at a time.

I then changed my registration setting from email activated to immediate.

Reinstalled without success.

Again used the parser details to undo everything.

I'm mystified.

I've reinstalled it again from scratch and it seems to be working. However the welcome topic has been posted twice for the last new poster. Maybe that is a glitch, they might have been in the process of registering as I was doing the install. I'll post any progress.

Hi Guys,

I have searched the thread and read through (mostly) every page but cant find an answer to my problem. Until the last page, I have a similar problem to Sean Dempsey above in that my welcome message posts twice every time a new member signs up? I know its an older thread so I hope it is still being monitored by someone.

I am not sure what information would be helpful to you guys to help me find a solution but I will happily post whatever you need.

Using smf 2.0.11 with very few other mods installed.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Chances are that you installed the mod twice...  in which case, the only solution is to manually remove the duplicated code

Thanks Kindred.

I can only see it once on my package list. I appreciate that wouldn't necessarily show me how many times it was installed. I am not sure how to remove the code manually as there is only one set of files on my server, no duplicate entries?

I guess I could just uninstall and try it again?

Thanks for your help.

EDIT: This is what it is telling me when I try to uninstall.

Thanks for your help. Sometimes you just need a prompt in the right direction. So on the pic I posted I clicked on the icon on the left for all three files register.php (I didnt realise you could do this) as I am new to coding and its all self taught I wasnt really sure what to do however clicking these brings up a pop up window with what you need to edit.

It asked me to find
SELECT id_member, validation_code, member_name, real_name, email_address, is_activated, passwd, lngfile, last_login
and replace with
SELECT id_member, validation_code, member_name, real_name, email_address, is_activated, passwd, lngfile

And find

   // Welcome Topic Mod

   if (empty($row['last_login']))
   {

      global $sourcedir;
      require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

      DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);

   }

   // End Welcome Topic Mod


And replace with
// Let the integration know that they've been activated!
   call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));


However I noticed that the above code was already added but the code that needed replacing was still there. I removed the code that should have been replaced in the second instance and it all seems to be working perfectly.

This is a great mod so thank you for your time and advice. Much appreciated.

Good work.

Hoping I can get some pointers on an issue I have when this mod is installed. I'm hoping someone can send me in the right direction with what to look for as I absolutely love this mod and really want it to be working properly. Using 2.0.11

The mod installs perfectly. No duplicate entries with the code and it posts exactly where I've set it to etc.

The problem I have relates to account activation either by admin or by email. I'll try to explain as best I can.

If activation is by email the member receives the activation email, clicks on the link but the link just hangs in the browser and times out, as a result the account doesn't get activated.

If activation is by Admin, the account does activate, the welcome post is posted. But while this is going on the admin panel hangs and times out and the member doesn't receive the confirmation email.

When I remove the mod all registration methods work perfectly. No errors are shown in the log.

I'm just hoping that someone might know what file I should be looking in to find a conflict etc. If anyone could give me any pointers I'd be very grateful !!

Edit- I should also add I'm using SMTP for mail on the forum and not php (in case this is relevant)
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: vbgamer45 on July 07, 2016, 01:14:09 PM
That is odd that it hangs. Does it hang if you don't have the welcome topic mod installed?

Quite literally in the last ten minutes I've got it working. For some reason the Akismet Anti Spam Add On was causing the problem. After a week of trying to get this working and a clear error log, all of a sudden Akismet appeared in the error log and it was blocking the activation code!  I uninstalled Askismet and everything is working to perfection. Akismet was only interfering whilst the welcome mod was installed, no issues without the mod.

Akismet has had to go. This is a fantastic mod.

Good work.

I was having the same issue. Each new member's first login was generating two welcome topics. In the Sources\Register.php file I found the following chunk of code.

Code: [Select]
// Let the integration know that they've been activated!
call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));

// Welcome Topic Mod

if (empty($row['last_login']))
{

global $sourcedir;
require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);

}

// End Welcome Topic Mod

// Welcome Topic Mod
global $sourcedir;
require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);


// End Welcome Topic Mod


// Validation complete - update the database!
updateMemberData($row['id_member'], array('is_activated' => 1, 'validation_code' => ''));

I commented out the redundant bits and it seems to be working fine now (I have not tested manually registering a new member yet though). This is what the chunk of code looked like after editing.

Code: [Select]
// Let the integration know that they've been activated!
call_integration_hook('integrate_activate', array($row['member_name']));

// Welcome Topic Mod

if (empty($row['last_login']))
{

global $sourcedir;
require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);

}

// End Welcome Topic Mod

// Welcome Topic Mod
//global $sourcedir;
//require_once($sourcedir . '/WelcomeTopic2.php');

//DoWelcomePost($row['member_name']);


// End Welcome Topic Mod


// Validation complete - update the database!
updateMemberData($row['id_member'], array('is_activated' => 1, 'validation_code' => ''));

I'm not sure what went sideways when installing but this did happen with a single install. Anyway, its a great mod. Thanks for sharing it! I hope this helps and if I can do anything else to help narrow the issue down let me know.

!Fixed bug with SMF 2.0.x with double welcome topics occurring. You must uninstall the old version first then install the new version.
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: Chaoticone on September 02, 2016, 02:03:52 PM
Awesome! Thanks!

Anyone know the best way to have the new members first login open to the welcome topic it created or to a different one? Would be nice if it opened the welcome topic created for that specific user or possibly a "Read this first" topic or similar. I haven't studied the code yet but if you know right off the file and area to look at that would be a  huge help. I also wonder if it will be pretty straight forward or tougher than one may think. If the topic is created on first login maybe you can't know where to open because it doesn't exist yet. I don't mind hand coding it so config. dialogs and options aren't necessary but I bet others would love them. Maybe there is another or a paid version that already offers this though?

Not sure why but this Mod has just stopped working. I have not updated anything or add any new mods since I installed it..

The only thing I did was change registration from having to "Email Activation" to "immediate registration." 

When I turn back on "Email Activation" this mod will start working again but with "immediate registration" and this mod no longer works.

I did not figure out that there is some difference for the mod if there is an option of "email activation" or "immediate activation".
I will change these settings and I will see if there is a difference at my forum.

Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: vbgamer45 on May 22, 2017, 09:32:48 PM
Did install twice or install with an error.

It posts the welcome message twice for all new users, I just read that in version 2.3 of this mod, that has been fixed, but now when I try to uninstall this mod version 2.2, I get an error saying not to do the uninstall as it will likely fail?

Would anyone be willing to have a look and help me out.

I have recently upgraded from 1.0.20 to 2.0.13 and had to do the fresh install three times due to failures and its getting a bit annoying. It also wont allow me to upgrade to 2.0.14 as that wants to fail too and brings up a white black window at the very next move :/.

SMF 2.0.14, php 7

Does Welcome Topic automatically add a Welcome Post if the new member registers using a Social Login mod?

I have the registration set for 'email activation' in the Members Settings.

My concern is visitors joining the forum using Facebook or Twitter etc to sign in won't get the Welcome Topic posted in the board I've assigned.

Hi,

I have a few (perhaps somewhat weird) questions....

I have taken over administration of a forum. I do notice, that a welcome topic is being created for every new user, but I cannot see how... I am completely unable to find the configuration for this. Is it possible, that this mod is installed and I cannot find it in the administration center?

Next to that: after creating the topic I would like to send an E-mail to the specific user notifying them of the just created welcome topic. Currently I do that manually, is it an option to automate that?

Thanks!
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: Kindred on January 13, 2019, 02:35:27 PM
No, there is no automatic option for that in this or any mod
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: Plantje on January 13, 2019, 03:00:28 PM
Ok, thanks. That's too bad.

And as for the first question, any idea? Would it be possible I have a mod installed (like this one) that is currently working, but no settings can be found?
Title: Re: Welcome Topic
Post by: vbgamer45 on January 13, 2019, 03:22:38 PM
Yes possible if doesn't install correctly. This does require configuring before it works so don't think it would be this one.
