First off, nice upgrade!! really nice.
Also, thank you so much for adding the admin notification option smile

But.. Not sure if this is a bug or an oversight, but I'll write it up here in hopes it gets resolved quickly.

I really really need the admin notification when someone registers on the boards so that my background scripts can add the new registrant to a master distribution list. The problem with the new "Admin notification" is twofold:
1. The message is inappropriate as it's the old "registration queue" message. It's meaningless as the user has already been registered.
2. The user's email is not included in the email, which is the whole reason I need the feature.

Example notification:

From: Game-Master.Net [mailto:no-reply@game-master.net]
Sent: Wednesday, July 18, 2007 11:18 AM
To: ouom@game-master.net
Subject: New User Registration at Game-Master.Net

A new user has registered at Game-Master.Net. To approve this account, please visit http://www.game-master.net/pit/admin/membermanage.php?returntab=1


What I would like:

A new user has registered at Game-Master.Net.
Email: newuser@blather.com (required)
Acct: sniffy (optional)
IP (optional)

Yes, like it used to be with UBB.classic

I did enable the new feature then, when I got an e-mail notification and saw the contents, I disabled it again.

IS there a couple lines of code I could put into one of the scripts to get the new registrants emial in the notice sent out?

I know it's a hack, but I would really like to have this feature back.

My husband did something to our UBB that sends us an email notification when a user registers. It includes their email address, IP number, display name, and a link to their profile.

I'm not sure, but I think it was an old mod on UBBDev .. maybe for 6.5 or earlier.

PLEASE consider this for the current round of enhancementments.
It's a feature I miss greatly from Classic.

New user reg admin notification in 7.3 contains:

Username
Email address
IP

smile

i wasn't clear, but i thought this was in 7.2.2 . regardless, that's what i put into 7.3 with the email overhaul for now smile

along with a link to the Management screen.

*hrm* link to their profile wouldn't hurt either, i guess..
