Is there a way to subscribe all new users to a particular forum or forums by default when their account is created? Using FUD in a corporate setting for a particular division of the company, I would like to make sure that all users are automatically subscribed to a couple of forums I have in place for polls and for management announcements/information. I'm not necessarily intersted in making it so that they can not unsubscribe (though I wouldn't be opposed to this - that idea has its merits), but simply that they would automatically be subscribed to a handful of important forums by default.

(I apologize in advance if this question has already been asked/answered, but I did do my due diligence to search for it before posting and came up empty.)

Thanks in advance!

You will need to write a plugin to do it.

Use the EMAILCONFIRMED hook. As an example, look at the code for Welcome_pm.plugin.

Thanks for the quick response. The sad part for me, given that requirement, is that I'm by no means a programmer. (My coding days ended on a Commodore 64...but I could poke and peek with the best of them back then!)

I guess I'm looking for a handout if anyone feels like taking on the challenge for the sheer "fun" of it....

LOL -- thanks again for the info!

Well, if you can in some other way contribute to the project, I would be more than willing to do the coding.

It's up to you. Some suggestions: make a donation, offer a bounty for new functionality, update a translation or translate the forum into a new language, write/proofread documentation, etc.
