Ensuring new members introduce themselves to your community when joining your forum is always a difficulty.


With our Force Users Introduce Themselves, this is now a problem of the past. This add-on lets you force all your new members to create a introduce thread before being able to interact on your forum.

Once a new member introduce himself, his introduce has then to be reviewed by one of your staff member who may accept or reject it.

If the introduce is accepted, the member will have the right to access to the rest of the forum. A conversation is then automatically started to notify the member that his introduce was accepted.

Otherwise, if it is rejected the member will stay with the same limitations. In that case, you have the option to automatically have the introduce moved to a dedicated forum with add of the name of the staff member who refused it displayed next to the introduce title. A conversation is as well started to notify the member that his introduce was rejected.

Limitations for new member before their introduce is accepted covers the following functionalities:
  • View Threads
  • Reply in Threads
  • Create Threads
  • View Attachments (both images and files one)
If you already had a introduce on your forum, a script is provided along with the add-on to allow you to automatically validate all the old presentations to avoid your members from being forced to present themselves again.

The plugin is not forcing anyone to introduce themselves. Does not automatic change user group to stop forum posts view without introduce themselves.
10/10, this add-on is working perfectly and was needed for my forum. Thank you Fred and MtoR for your work !
