  • Preferences on registration

    I recnetly upgraded from a Ubb5.4X to the latest vB.

    All of the registraints were proted over with email notification on by default. Also, they all have their preference for the pop up when you receive a PM to off.

    I have two questions...

    What is the best way to make all of my CURRENT registrants so that they do not have email notification on my default. How can I make their PM pop up on by default?

    And then secondly, how can I do that for all NEW registrants?

    There is setting in "Change Options" in Admin CP.

    "Confirm User Email" - that changes wether is confirmed or not.

    I think there is a hack that makes some settings default:

      Isn't the User Confirmation different from the Email Notification?

      Email notification emails you when someone posts in the thread...

      Email Confirmation makes them 'activate' their account.

        Sry i misunderstood.

        Both can be changed in the "Change Options".

        Search the page for "email" and you will come up with the options.

          I know for each individual user they can be changed like that...

          I want to change the DEFAULT.....

          Right now it is on, I want it off.

            You can.

            Thats the setting i was talking about.

            It switches off notification.

            Search that page for notfication and email.

              Enable Email features?
              Enable email sending features: send to friend and email notification for posters and moderators. Don't forget to remove those links from the forumdisplay, newreply, newtopic, & editpost templates

              You can turn off the 'Send to Friend' feature for invidual user groups in the User Permissions area.
              I'd need to turn off Email to a friend also then...

              I could not find anything else by search for email/notification under the Changes area.

              If you could check your vB and let me know the exact area of what you're talking about is, that would be great.

                Those are the only settings available.

                If you want an extra feature you will have to get a hack made.


                Sry it took this long for me to realise what u mean
