Greets:

Wasn't there a hack that would have the PHPNuke install send a newly confirmed user a email welcoming them to your system? I could have sworn that there was one but I'm not finding one here or at nukeresources or google.

Thanks,
-drmike

If you use the forum registration you can do that, but I don't know of a way to do it with the Your_Account registration.

That is correct. There is not one ported to work with a nuke site registration. The only out there is for the forum registration. It is a pitty as this would be a great hack.

nope..it isnt.. it is a hack that allows you.. if you register with the forum registration to get an auto response pm with whatever message you wish in it.

Laughing - That's what I am asking. Is the question pertaining to an auto-response that would be sent after a person activates their registration, since the original poster states it is a "newly confirmed user" which implies that they have activated their registration. That's what it sounds like to me. The order of events would be:

User registers
Nuke sends an activation email
User activates account
Nuke sends a welcome letter

Yes, the welcome letter is in pm form. It is a really nice feature to have on your site I believe.

This is the actual hack Gaylen if it helps. It would be great if we could have it work with actual nuke site registration. Smile It can work with phpbb 2.13

Seems like there should be a way to combine your welcome message with the email that is sent for activation... My first thought was the language file but I don't see the activation message in it..hmmmm

Gonna dig a little deeper and see what I can find.

I use the Forum registration on my site as well as the forum profile, I have mostly removed the "profile" part on the nuke side on my site mainly because my forum is heavily modded and I have added many extra fields in the registration/edit profile part.

Yes, that's what I'm asking for.

I wouldn't think it would be that hard actually. Just adding code right after the line that saved the user data in the _user table. You could save the text in the lang_* files. Isn't that where the activation email text is stored? Send it out as a simle mail() function call I would think.

I'll take a look at it this afternoon. I might just code it myself. Smile

Rather not do it as a combined message. I feel the activation message should be as simple as possible as to not confuse visitors. If it's a follow up message, then the visitor as an encouragement to revisit your site looking for the items you've pointed out within your welcome message. (I don't run a standard PHP-Nuke site.)

It should be as simple as adding a line or 2 into the "activate_user" function in Your_Account/index.php . You could either include your welcome letter in a variable or store it in a separate file and just include it in your email code.
