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.

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.

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 ?

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~.

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.

How are they entering their display name? The default of SMF does not allow them to choose the display name.

Does allow.

SMFHacks,

Do confirm that you haven't changed
the "Allow users to edit their displayed name?" permission
on your forum.

ps.
Reply with quote (with Quick reply box enabled)
does not work for me.
(just green ~Loading~ endless notification.)

I have a problem with this mod. I'm currently running SMF 1.1.5 with TP V. .98.  I followed directions but recently got a new member and it didn't do the welcome post. I've checked the settings and all systems are a go but it didn't go..LOL
Any ideas?
