Personalized Welcome Private Message

Solved Personalized Welcome Private Message

Post by Isis of Egypt on July 13th 2012, 5:02 am

Hi,

My website automatically sends a welcome private message to every new member and I've been looking for a way to make the massage more personal and insert the users name into the email.

Example:
Welcome [username]

The problem is, I haven't been able to find a way where I just write 1 piece of code and it automatically puts the name of that user there and it's just a lot of work to edit the private message myself all the time

Does anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks a lot!

Have you tried the { USERNAME } code (remove spaces)?

My site sends automatic PM messages to new users, too (through ACP>general>Messages and Emails>Private Messages). It generates the name of user / viewer.

If you what to have the member's username to appear in a pm, post, announcement, widget, homepage message, etc., use this:
Code:
{*USERNAME}
Remove *.

When I put in {*USERNAME} without the * it puts my username in the private message instead of the username of the person the message is addresses to.

UPDATE:
It is solved, I just logged on with my player account and it shows the name of the viewer, that's why it initially looked like it used my name instead of the name of the person who it is addressed to.

Thank you so much!!

When you look at it, it would show your username. It shows the username of the person looking at it.
