Send Welcome Private Message Upon Registration

15 years 6 months ago #2181 by browneye253
I would like to have the system send a PM to any new user welcoming them to the site, but mostly to help catch their eye and get them into their inbox so they realize it's use. Is this a possiblity, am I missing something?

Thanks

Not currently possible - but it would make a neat plugin request!

I know that one of the current PMS systems already done this today as it was and is this way on mambojoe.com. You may also consider having it be a feature request there.

If I had to guess I would say it's MyPMS Pro as I've used the OS version and am currently using UddeIM and neither of those provide this functionality.

Is there a website for Udde that I could request this feature be added?

Thanks!

uddeIM bugs & feature requests are best logged at http://mamboforge.net/projects/uddeim .

I don't think that myPMS Pro has, either.

Because this is something that has to be done from the User Administration script and not the PMS. The PMS, whichever you use, doesn't 'know' of new users until they get/send a message for the first time.

So it's easiest to do it with a CB plugin or a CB hack (in the routine for example that is executed when a new user visits the site for the first time, because then it's sure that (s)he's confirmed and approved).

And then all you have to do is to enter that into the uddeim db:

[code:1]INSERT INTO #__uddeim (fromid, toid, message, datum,
systemmessage, disablereply) VALUES ('$my->id', '$my-id',
'Hi and welcome to uddeIM, the private messaging system!', 'time()',
'Your Site Name', 1)[/code:1]
