I have usergroups setup as Unregistered, Registered, and Approved. Unregistered users have no rights. Registered users can view photos, but not upload or comment. Approved users can view, upload, and comment. There is no forum integration, this is a pure photo gallery. Gallery is at http://www.netpatrick.com/photopost/index.php
I'm trying to do two things:
1) Put a very visible message on the index page for unregistered users that tells them they have to register to view photos and need to request ability to upload photos. I've updated the Welcome text via the Admin screen, but it's still not very visible. I tried the Announcement box, but that shows up on ALL index screens and I want to post a message only for the unregisered user. Ideas?
2) I can't find an option to notify the admin of newly registered users. Currently my plan is to have the users send an email to the webmaster, but would prefer an auto-notification upon user registration. I have the valid email requirement turned on, and that obviously send an email to the new user ... can I mod that file to also send an notification email to the admin? Ideas?
Ive searched through this forum and seen this question asked a bunch of different ways ... but the solutions come back to, "use the announcement box" and "no new user notification to admin, but good idea". Any new ideas???
