XF 2.1 Auto-reply to first post

In my forum, we have an Introductions section. I prefer it if members introduce themselves first before posting elsewhere. As it stands, members welcome that new person with their own messages. What I would love to do is, using some automated system, reply to their post with the rules of the forum, link to the FAQ etc.

Is there a way to do this?

Workflow: Person posts intro thread > instant auto reply with rules, FAQ etc. i.e. Persons post is #1 in thread, my auto reply is #2 post, any other replies from other members are #3 upwards.

You could use the new user welcome message upon registering and then in that message link to your rules and the FAQ.

ACP then options, then user registration.

@Jon12345, great minds... I requested this for the same reason.

Does it not look for specific keywords? What if someone just posts, I am Dave and hope to enjoy myself here.

They could post anything as a first message.

The free way is use the built-in system to send a welcome PM or email with the rules. Or decide if $30 is worth the money for the exact solution you want.
