Now Uddeim released version 2.0 and Community Builder v.1.2.2, but this plugin no updated.
Owner's reply


The AutoWelcome plugin works just fine with all uddeIM version.


Because the developers have been cooperating for a long-long time and have agreed upon an API.

So there is no reason to produce updates.

Sorry, this review - imo - is not a review.

I sometimes forget to tell the peeps who work so hard on this stuff, how good their products are. This plugin is efficient, when I had some settings issue, the developer went into my backend and fixed it and told me what I had set wrong. I really like this plugin because it saves me so much time. All new members are personally greeted by me the minute they log into the site for the first time and I can also direct them to important areas of the site by this automated greeting. So this is a good plugin and I have received great support as well from Nant.

This plugin came into very usefully key into my site. When members register on the site, it's nice to have this plugin welcome my users and make them feel like they belong.

This plugin makes my admins and myself job easier. We can now focus more onto the site and the news and not having to worry about welcoming all the new users.

Was very easy to install and works like a charm.

I am very happy to have this plugin running on my site; not only does it save me having to manually welcome every new user, but whenever we get a solid paid membership program going, it will definitely make all new members feel welcome! Easy install and works like a dream with UddeIM!

for my crowing community site it is my job to say hello to each new user entering the community, give him same starting informations and establish the first connection so that he can imagine this nice functionality.

I done this for hundreds of users. every day the same boring procedure (that i like because of growing business).

From now on, I have no longer to spend my time for this job!!!

You will love "CB AutoWelcome Plugin" for doing these boring but very important job for you. I swear :-)

It is also easy to install and to configure.

Nant, this was a great job.

Many thanks!!!

Sunny regards from Germany

Glad you found this effort useful ... now if we can just find a way to force people to read what we send them during autowelcome instead of just rushing to spam forums and email boxes with questions that have been answered before ...

I've used this extension myself and I have to say it does exactly what it's meant to do "connect to new users".

It could automatically send a connection request to new users which is really handy when you have a "support" user (who answer questions new users might have) make a connection to new users and could also make your site/community feel welcoming.

It does so many things, I suggest you should try it yourself and be the "new user" by signing up with joomlapolis to see how this extension work!
Owner's reply

Yup, you can certainly give new users answers to frequently asked questions ... now getting people to actually read this before they jump to posting is the real challenge ...!!!
