Description

Copied some suggestion I just throwed on irc..., after fighting each time on some of my production sites to manually send messages to many users which are kind of lost some times at the beggining of their participation in a tiki-site-powered community.

(11:37:39) xavi: I was just wondering about a new and easy improvement of the registration process of new users to a community sit eusing tiki
(11:38:07) xavi: just through allowing an admin to add acustomized welcome message to new users successfully registered to the site...
(11:38:29) xavi: ... with the text and links he might need to tell to new users....
(11:38:52) xavi: ...in a similar way to what mailman does for the welcome message to new users...
(11:39:48) xavi: ...I imagine a simple text area, like site identity does, where the admin can write any simple text (with or without wiki markup? like the newsletter feature does/allows)...
(11:40:45) xavi: ...so that the admin can set that message easily (without manualy searching for the appropiate template to hack through ftp)...
(11:42:48) xavi: ..and the the new user, can review the infos and tips that he/she needs to know on that site: "now you can: # watch that forum where that important thing is discussed.... #join that newsletter/blog/articlefeature to be up to date about news from that community, #review and/or subscribe to that tracker..., ...
(11:45:22) xavi: oh well, I can't code php+mysql myself (yet, at least ;-) ), but I guess that this shouldn't be that difficult nor time consuming to an experienced coder, provided that that person agrees on that this feature is "low hanging fruit" to improve the experience of newcomers to a community, through improving the communication while the first steps of that person in the community site...


This could also be important for Workspaces, and Organic Groups. So that, not just to register (join the registered group), but as a customized message per group, so that, when joining a new group (at registration time, or later on through the subscribe groups plugin), you get the specific message with hints, links and remindings of things adapted for that group.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
