Welcome Topic

Post by Restless Rancor » Mon Oct 08, 2018 2:11 pm

Hi,
I'd love an extension that creates a topic in a specified forum after a member has registered. This could be used to greet new members to the forum.
I've seen some 3.0 mods and 3.1 extensions that will do this, but none seem to be compatible with 3.2.

My ideas for such an extension:
  • Set the userID of the topic author
  • Changeable message & title via ACP option
  • Notify the member, or even redirect them to the new topic after they confirm their email address.
Example:
Subject:
Welcome Test User!
Body:
Welcome to the forums, Test User!
Let us know a bit about yourself and if you have any questions just ask!
- Admin

Thanks

This extension is still in development but will do what you are asking (and more) viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2412451

Hi, I'm even subscribed to that topic but completely forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me! :oops:
