To put it simply, it welcomes newly registered members. It will welcome them with an optional personal message, email or topic alert. From there you can further customize each pm, email or topic message, the subject / title and so on. It also has the ability to welcome members that are added manually through the Admin CP.

Great Plugin


Is there anyway to add multiple welcome message.   Say I have the initial welcome message but I need to option to send welcome message from a different user group.


Can I do something like that

Response from the author:

No sorry it doesn't support multiple messages. I've got this plugin that might work how you want - https://www.devfuse.com/products/95-new-member-followup/

When someone registers on the forum they do not get the welcome email. 
The internal mail works fine.

Great app and the new feature Time day is a nice addition. It would be great if we could add multiple welcome messages so we can send one after 1st hour, second after a new day, third after a week etc.

Response from the author:

Built in support may come in the future but in the meantime, this plugin does support followup personal messages - https://www.devfuse.com/products/95-new-member-followup/

Fantastic! Unread message notification is not appearing. Ver. 4.2.7

Extremely useful app to encourage your new members to feel welcome and engage rapidly in your community. It really makes a difference!

We were "deprived" from this app after IPS4 upgrade, due to some technical trouble on our side, although we used it for years on the previous version, and we really missed it. Mike was really helpful and patient to assist in troubleshooting (100% my fault, the app is working perfectly with a clean IPS 4.2.6 install). Nice possibilities of customizations, easy to use. Top app and top contributor!

This application is free at the time of posting this, and it seems to be supported quite well by @Mike John one of the best developers in the marketplace in my opinion. The version of the modification I am reviewing was 2.5.0 for IPS 4.2.x (I used 4.2.1, at the time of this review).

Auto Welcome is quite a critical feature on my forums, as I like to have our resident bot send PMs to new members to welcome them and to show them around; explain what each forum is for and so on, and to make a good first impression on my new members. This application allows me to do that, and make it quite personable by allowing me to use '%member_name%' which allows my bot to address the user by their username. For a free application it's packed with features and I think it's quite well thought out and exceptionally reasonable. Oh and it's free, with great support. The application works perfectly for me and although I don't expect to come across any, I know if I come across any bugs the developer will most likely fix them quite quickly, a rare comodity these days. So I do highly recommend this application if you want to give your members a customised welcome.

Thank you Mike; for being awesome.

I really like the app, but I cannot figure out how to get it to welcome the folks that join through the integration with Facebook/Twitter/Google/etc.  Looking at the support topic, it looks like Mike John is aware.  This is a real good app.  Love it.  Once that functionality is added it will be back to one of the best!

This an awesome app

But now that IPS has made numerous changes and updates, don't you think its time for an update.....You Have over 2,000 downloads and not all of them use the same version of IPS. I hope this gets an update soon as it is needed on all boards.

thank you for the excellent app though.

This is really a great app!  Something that should be built in to the suite.  @Mike John has performed a valuable service for the Invision community!

I particularly like how new Members can be given welcome statuses even though Status updates are disabled by default for new Members.  This way you can give new Members a welcome status while at the same time telling them how to enable/disable statuses, not to mention making new Members aware of the status update ability (which not all newcomers get off the bat).

I have a few thoughts for improvements which however do not take away from the awesomeness of this app:

It would be great if there were some way to include the new Member's name in a new Forum topic, if that's what one has set up.  Otherwise, if you have an Introduction forum where all the new Member posts go, you will have a list of topics called "Welcome" or "Welcome to..." or whatever without any variation, which doesn't look very good in a forum.

It would also be great to have the Profile Link include the Member's name instead of "View Member," even though the Profile Link text is customisable in languages.

Great work!

works as it should, however the version from 3 to 4 has a bug as the status update posts it from the actual member and not from the admin.

So, it's almost like the member welcoming himself.

It doesn't work in IPS - after installation it breaks the forum and only uninstalling them and coming back to 'Forum' helps. It is probably incompatible with the newest version of IPS   :(
