Solved Direct new members to a link

Post by IndoRockers on March 17th 2011, 5:26 pm

Hello,

I'd like to know is it possible to direct new member(s) to a link after registration?
I'd like to direct them to the general rules section so they read the rules before posting.
And how?

Thanks you.

Else you can lock this topic..

The only other idea I can think of is have a group for new users and make them post in the rules section to confirm they are following them. Once they post they can see the other forums.

You could tell them what to do with the first welcome PM.

Basically, by combining this: http://help.forumotion.com/t57913-auto-subscribe-to-groups

...with this: http://help.forumotion.com/t38399-restricted-forums

You can allow your members to post in a specific section first which will bring their post count up to 1 which will then automatically add them to a group which will allow them to access the whole forum. Wink

Or you could make a new auto group, and have them not able to see any forums except the rules, and then add them to the normal users after they agree.
