Extension talk:NewUserMessage

This extension works very well, but ...

It might seem obvious to more experienced users, but it took me a while how to work out how to use the name parameter in the MediaWiki:NewUserMessage page (embarrassed smile here!)

I have only used named parameters before so thought adding {{{name}}} would add the users name to the output but it has to be {{{1}}}.

I will add an example MediaWiki:NewUserMessage page to the Usage section to show this.

How do you insert the user's real name.[edit]

I created a template 'NewUserWelcome' and call that template on NewUserMessage article.

But instead of seeing user's real name all I see i {{{1}}} in the user's talk page.

How to insert into the User Page instead of user talk page?[edit]


Thanks for this extension, It really helps me out. I am... well lets just say I am a noob in the wiki world still, but this was pretty easy to install and to use. Thanks again =) -- 15:14, 29 November 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bot in Recent Changes[edit]

Hi I have set a bot as $wgNewUserMessageEditor = 'XX'; but still the change shows up in Recent Changes. All other changes by the bot do corretly not show up.
Maybe cos I have changed the message to be added to UserPage? Line 42: $talk = $user->getUserPage();
Any idea? --Subfader 13:44, 12 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not quite sure what you mean here? how does the bot fit in with NewUserMessage? I've added a global into the code called $wgNewUserSupressRC to allow you to supress the new user messages from showin up in recent changes. --Nad 21:49, 12 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks that works fine now. --Subfader 05:23, 13 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request to enable on Wikimedia[edit]

Thanks for keeping me in the loop :-) --Nad 21:12, 28 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why no support of insertion into User Page[edit]

Is there any reason why this extension does not support filling the User Page instead of the User Talk Page with the provided template? I just hacked the extension by replacing $user->getTalkPage() by $user->getUserPage() and it seems to work, but I haven't thoroughly tested it yet.

Any comments or arguments why this might be a bad idea? - LosWochos 11:38, 20 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah i'd like something like this as well, or be able to leave multiple messages on different pages. -- 08:23, 14 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'd also be interested in being able to automatically create and insert something into the User Page instead of the User Talk Page (Discussion). SubtleAphex (talk) 15:56, 29 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Doesn't work on 1.17, breaks API[edit]

I installed this extension sometime last week. I am current developing MediaWiki bot in PHP. It works before, now I am rewriting it in Ruby. I am keep getting Illegal errors when logging in. I spent 10 hours debugging my bot and found nothing. Finally I found is this extension that's doing it and I disabled it. Is there a bug??

Major error message, extension does not work.[edit]

Of late I've been getting the following error message, which ties to this extension:

Fatal error: Call to a member function isLoggedIn() on a non-object in /home/kitsufo/public_html/cosc/extensions/NewUserMessage/NewUserMessage.class.php on line 26

I use mediawiki 1.16.0 and extension version 3.1 .

Illegal login errors[edit]

MW 1.22.3, tracked down random problem to this extension. "You have not specified a valid username" when logging in with perfectly valid account. Nb. the error when account doesn't exist or password is wrong is different, and from a brief search this message appears as though it should relate to account creation not log-in.

How do I customize the username it uses?[edit]

Your help will be appreciated. -- 13:16, 20 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You can edit the message MediaWiki:newusermessage-editor on your wiki. --Nemo 09:49, 18 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Curly brackets in message[edit]

Our users are seeing {{ at the beginning of our welcome message, despite our MediaWiki:Newusermessage-template not having these brackets... Help? Thanks! Brettz9 (talk) 13:13, 23 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unwanted parameters and signature[edit]

Hi. I own a wiki hosted on Miraheze. I activated this extension, but it always includes realName= and name= perameters in the template, as well as a New user message signature, which I don't want. How do I remove these things? When a new user is created, I just want {{welcome}} to be added to the talk page. More information:

Does anyone know how to fix it? Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (talk) 00:58, 23 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry to keep bumping this discussion. I feel like I've tried every option, and I can't figure out how to make it put just {{welcome}} on the talk page. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (talk) 04:06, 25 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Never mind. I'll try to figure it out. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (talk) 23:57, 30 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, I can't figure it out. Can anyone help? Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (talk) 05:03, 28 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm sorry for constantly bumping this thread (or whatever it's called). It's just really annoying. I added this extension so I wouldn't have to edit new talk pages, but now I still have to remove the template's parameters and the signature at the end every time.

Not Working with StructuredDiscussions?[edit]

Hey Guys,

i have Extension:StructuredDiscussions and the Extension:NewUserMessage installed. If an user do register in my wiki, i can see in the recent changes there was made a comment made from "New user message" and when i take a look on it, there is no new message. Its seems because of StructuredDiscussions. Is there a way to get this two work together? Yukii (talk) 11:43, 22 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I also almost face this problem
After the new user registers, a blank page is created in the discussion message and cannot be deleted. This means that the talk page will not be deleted
