Welcome Letter ( 13:21:51 ThuJan 31 2002 )

Curious to know how that works. If you put in the <BbBoard="username"> does that automatically pick up the new member's name?

If this is indeed sent to their mailbox- is there a subject line?

If there is this welcome email - does there need to be a welcome page?

Yup,

It's send to their e-mail. The subject will be "Welcome to <yourboardname>".

Wherever you put in <BbBoard="username"> , it'll change that to the new member's username. So, for example, with a new member "aMember":

Quote:

Hi <BbBoard="username">, welcome to our board!


would be changed to:

Quote:

Hi aMember, welcome to our board!


:smile:

You don't need a welcome page to have a welcome e-mail. :smile:

Ok .. so next question :smile: Could I just put all the html coding that I have for our welcome page into the welcome letter ? I mean technically that should work, correct? Only problem being some folks who can't view .gif's or .jpg's those would just have the x's .. in theory that should work !

Sure,

The welcome letter actually uses your default board template. So just keep in mind that you'll have the table around the edge anyway.. :smile: But you can use any HTML you like in there.

How can I view what the letter will look like before letting it go out to new members ? :smile:

Hm,

Guess I should include a preview feature. :wink: you could register a 2nd name, then post at your board with it, and that'd send you it... Might be a bit impractical thoughh..
