Welcome email or PM?

    I'm looking into having a welcome PM or email sent to successful new registrations to point them towards some useful parts of the site. I have looked for an option in the admin area - I can't see one - and I have looked for an add-on to do this. I can't find any add-on to do this in Resources but would swear there used to be one, unless I missed it.

    Any suggestions please? If this is already a core feature can someone tell me where abouts I can find the settings for this?

    Ragtek's NUNS (New user notification system) will do the trick. Ragtek left XF, but here it is.

    That's the old one. The one I attached was from the resource manager when it was there. It works perfectly. You can see it in action at my forum.

    That's an old version, it's posted on here if you want:


    you'll need to register though, and POST it's a good community :)

    Or Harry's :), i think there's one slightly newer not sure about the changes, the adminx one is beta 26

    Thanks guys.

    Not sure I agree that Admin Extra is a good community however. To get access to the resources you need to comply with some very vague criteria:

    There's no point in me registering and then posting rubbish while I wait for some undefined criteria to give me access to part of the site I joined for - what a joke, it's not exactly a good way to encourage new members. Anyway I digress since Harry Fox has saved the day - thanks, I will give the attached file a go :)

    I was actually about to download the latest version, and realised I didn't have permission to download the resource. Then I saw that vague post too. Anyway, the above one should work fine.

    Thanks Harry - installed fine - just need to write a welcome PM now :) It actually has some good options in, including welcome PM, mod/admin notification of new user, welcome profile post, welcome thread. Another great Ragtek add-on, such a shame he left.

    I use the welcome thread and private message. I think it is great.
