My previous message may not have made much sense. What I was trying to say is this...
Before installing this mod, users are sent to the login page after clicking the email activation link, right? After installing this mod, users are sent to the specific page which I designated, without being logged in. Can this mod be updated so the user is redirected to the designated page AFTER having to log in first?
This is great! An awesome way to help guide new members. I have installed and tested with a new account signup. So it works, delivering the user to the specific forum topic I have configured through the setting.
The only question I have, is the user is not auto-logged in...but receives a message at the top that says "Thanks for joining. Redirecting you to the consent form." What consent form? I find that confusing, as the user doesn't receive any message that says they need to log in first.
A recommendation from many internet marketers is for allowing guests to subscribe to newsletters, as a way of building larger email lists. Makes lots of sense.....and you see it all over the net. But it seems like this increasingly important capability is missing from IP.Board.
Say a guest comes to my forum, doesn't want to become a member but is interested in entering their email. I should be able to collect guest emails, and use the Bulk Mail tool to send them newsletters as well. Doesn't sound too complicated...simply provide a template form (example below) and auto-store those collected emails into a "Guest Emails" member group....Then allow the bulk mail to send to those in this group as well.
How can I prevent members from certain groups, such as my unsubscribed group, from receiving these anniversary emails? I have someone in my unsubscribed group who complained about still receiving this message.
