I have installed and uninstalled that MOD 4 times on my SMF 1.1.2 with no errors, but it doesn't work.. I have made posts for days hoping the person would respond but nothing.  This is the first MOD I have installed with no errors and it does not work.. wish someone could give me a clue on what the problem might be.

Did you select a board to post the topic to? And save the settings
Title: Re: [Mod] Welcome Topic
Post by: filipina on May 11, 2007, 08:11:04 pm
yes i did that.. made about 6 different template topics saying various things to look authentic, and picked the board for them to display and also saved the settings... it just doesn't work..

i am no expert but i have 12 MODS installed and only had a problem with one other one which was resolved..

I approve people and whether i require activation or not it does not generate the topic

Are you testing by registering new 'test' members through the admin section? If so then test by registering new 'test' members via the normal registration process.

ok now it has just started working, but i promise i did not do anything else.. maybe it just took 100 new people to get warmed up..lol

I was on the smf website and i do not know how anyone can deal with all the lite addition questions, it made my head spin..

I should be able to find the answer to this question but i cannot.. if i am running smf 1.1.2 default theme how can i add recent thumbs to the top, and if i can how many?  If i do this what happens to the lower portion of the gallery where it already have them listed?  Or, is their a certain popular mod that many people are using with pro version that i am missing?

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated ;D

SMFHacks,

should a mod installer change
<file name="$languagedir/Modifications.english.php">

to
<file name="$languagedir/Modifications.english-utf.php">

to force the mod operate in utf8 forum ?

(It is in WelcomeTopic.xml file.)

SMFHacks,

I have fixed the mod for utf8
and selected the board for Welcome topic posting to.

I have prepared the desired title
and the body of the Welcome message.

I have also included "{username}"
in the Poster Name field - exactly as i need it.

But the next welcome topic appeared without poster name at all.
Therefore i uninstalled the Welcome Topic mod.

Please,
Allow {username} including into Poster Name field.

ps.
After that
I will install the mod again
and will ask you to register at my forum
to check whether the Welcome topic is being created correctly..
to continue the defended dialogue.

IWAC's idea

SMFHacks,

Are there any tools for SMF
which would allow to reflect somehow
the attitude of the topic Author
to the post of another member in Author's topic..

after reading of another member's post by topic author ?

For example, there could be formalized icons
(maybe visible for post author only):

Just Read
Have Read and Ignored
Be More Specific
Wait for Reply
...
A separate ~Welcome Topic~ is being prepared..


Or just a link (grivitoutik) to the new separate topic
with the quote of the original member's post
could be published..

in special section of the member's post.

Hacks is it possible to change the username in the topic to displayname?
Title: Re: [Mod] Welcome Topic
Post by: SMFHacks on February 20, 2008, 07:46:12 pm
Not sure if that would work. Because the mod uses the username when they register on the forum and by default the registration form does not ask for a display name.

and by default the registration form does not ask for a display name.

SMFHacks,

WelcomeTopic.xml :
Code: [Select]
'subject' => str_replace("{username}",$row['memberName'],$row2['welcomesubject']),
'body' => str_replace("{username}",$row['memberName'],$row2['welcomebody']),

Username - is used only for identification by SMF (for login).
It is saved in members.memberName .

Name - is the displayed name that people will see.
It is saved in members.realName .

After the registration -
the default value of members.realName
is equal to members.memberName value.

When an administrator included the {username} variable
in Welcome Topic settings -
the mod should display a value of the database field
                                      members.realName
instead of members.memberName , i.e.
Code: [Select]
'subject' => str_replace("{username}",$row['realName'],$row2['welcomesubject']),
'body' => str_replace("{username}",$row['realName'],$row2['welcomebody']),

Shouldn't it ?
Title: Re: [Mod] Welcome Topic
Post by: SMFHacks on February 20, 2008, 10:50:42 pm
It could but doesn't make much of a difference since the user never has a chance to change their display name until after they are registered in the forum and approved.

SMFHacks,

i do not understand you here.

I have changed my display name on your forum
from "gri" to ~grif~.. timely.

Do confirm that ~grif appeared~ in the member.realName field
in your database.

At the moment, all my posts on the forum
have the ~grif~ displayed name.

If i had my Welcome Topic with {username} implemented -
then it should change the display automatically to
something like:

~Dear grif, you are always welcome at the forum..
 with your gritoadmixes~.
Title: Re: [Mod] Welcome Topic
Post by: Rafferty on March 18, 2008, 07:45:32 am
When my members register, they provide their username (ie: ier475k) and their display name (their real name (ie: john smith)).

At the moment the mod generates the user name therefore: "Welcome to ier475k", hmmm very impersonal and would be preferred to read "Welcome to John Smith"

I have removed the mod for this reason after advice from my moderators that its tacky and impersonal although the concept is excellent value. It would be of much more value if the variables could be included. ie: username, displayname, realname etc.
Title: Re: [Mod] Welcome Topic
Post by: SMFHacks on March 18, 2008, 06:52:30 pm
How are they entering their display name? The default of SMF does not allow them to choose the display name.

Does allow.

the "Allow users to edit their displayed name?" permission
on your forum.

Same problem here... when I register a new member through he admin panel. No new post.  SMF 1.1.5 no TP.

I have selected the forum, and I have added a welcome message.

Installed Welcome Topic on SMF 1.1.5/TP 1.05 flawless. Ony thing what might not correctly is the use of more than one welcome topic. It seems is uses the last added topic in de config. I have two, but it uses only the one on the top of the list.

It might be coincidence, but I'm not sure.

I'll await a few new members en see what happens. If I create new (fake)accounts myself, the same topic is still used (the one on top of the topiclist) but the second one isn't used while posting a welcome topic.

How come?

Hello,

I posted the following on the SMF forums, but am wondering if it might be something you would be interested in doing? It seems to me your WelcomeMessage mod has most of the pieces that would be needed to receive command-line input to do this, but hacking your code would be way over my head.

=====================

Hello,

We are starting to use SMF and one request that has been made, in the transition for people to stop using email, is the ability to create a new topic under a specific board by email.  That is, to be able to route an email message to SMF and strip the subject out as a new topic name, and the body out for the text.

Of course, the system notifications for this would have to also work.

Is there anyone out there that has already done this?  My guess is one would have to write a script that would execute under an alias on the server which pushes the info directly into the database, but this is to advanced for me to do on my own.

best regards,
Mark

Hello All, newbie here, well, newbie to this forum anyway. :)

I have this mod installed in 1.1.9 and it works fine so a big thank you to the developers. PayPal here I come :)

Anyway, a question. The mod produces a NEW post in the Board as designed. Is it possible to hack this mod to APPEND the message to a current topic already there, as though it was a REPLY to that topic?

Cheers for any guidance on this.

Hi having some problems with this mod in 2.0 RC2

Was working fine... suddenly the [username] tags stopped working, so it is posting a welcome message without the peoples username in it

I deleted the origianal welcome message and made a new one and same problem

So today i went to edit it and change the [ to a { just incase

but now it wont let me edit the welcome message or even create a new one

for both it just says Invalid value inserted or no type specified.

Make sure you have the latest version of the Welcome Topic mod from SMF's modsite.

For SMF 2.0 you need to use [ and ] { and } no longer work since they are reserved characters.

I'm using SMF 2.0 RC2 and am also having a problem with the [username] function in that it doesn't return anything to the post
I'm using it in both the topic and subject but it just doesn't display anything

Results are from genuine members registering on the forums
www.vdsr.co.uk

Any help ?

Thanks

hmm what type of activation do you have enabled is it instant? Or approval by admin, approval by email etc?

It's by email

The post is being created, it's just that the [username] is showing blank

I'll see what happens next time we get a new registration

Thanks for the mods by the way

Terry

Still getting double posts when a new member joins any idea why it would double post?

Either mod installed twice or there are two types of activation on that may cause it post twice.

It's setup as Member Activation but when they signup it does add them to the new members list which I believe is a mod as well....Here's a screenshot of the packages installed...I really need to do a fresh install of SMF and wipe a bunch of these mods out.

I read threw all 5 pages of this thread and didnt see my question asked, hopefully I didnt miss it...

Can the {username} be linked to they're profile?
Is there a list of variables that can be used?

The only variable that currently is supported in the welcome is {username} at this time.

Hi there,
       i Tried installing this mod and from my understanding it wont work for mail activation registration right?
Title: Re: [Mod] Welcome Topic
Post by: SMFHacks on January 26, 2011, 01:08:07 pm
It should work for that too.
Title: Re: [Mod] Welcome Topic
Post by: krsna on January 26, 2011, 05:30:34 pm
can someone please explain the workflow? my understanding is this
new user->registering->email activation->activated->page lands on new topic created for user..

Is this correct?

Can't seem to find a fix, but when installed, it creates the post, but the {usename} stays as {username} and doesn't really say their name in the title or in the post.

I have the registration set to I as admin have to activate their accounts.

Ok, i'm completely stumped.

I've installed Welcome Topic and made 5 test accounts using the normal registration method (not through the admin panel) but im getting no welcome messages at all.


I selected a forum and a poster. Saved it.
I created a have a topic.

My registration method is instant. No activation required (admin or email)
Im using smf 2.0.7 with the style SampleBlue.


I'm about to give up on this mod entirely and I really hope someone can help me out.

Thank you for any support in advance.
