    Is PemBer able to send the following automated timed PMs to each member?

    PM upon registering

    PM 2 weeks after registering?

    PM 4 weeks after registering?

    PM 5 days before membership is up?

    PM 1 day before membership is up?

    I would like to give members a free membership for 30 days. Then account blocked unless they upgrade to a monthly payment. Is this possible with PemBer?

    Thank you

    Hi @Wednesday (Interesting choice of username! ;))

    This is an out of the Box XenForo feature. If you go to XenForo Admin -> options -> registration options. You will see the below. This allows you to send a welcome PM or email upon registration.

    This is unfortunately not possible right now. What you can do though is create two usergroups, 2 Week Old and 4 Week old and then setup two user promotions which add these usergroups by selecting the number of days criterion in user promotions.


    So now, all your members who are 2 week, and 4 week old will get the corresponding usergroup. You will then have to manually send them conversations from the Admin->Users->Message Users.

    An addon can be coded which can automate this though. But I don't think one exists.

    PemBer has a setting by which you can determine how many days before expiration members will get an email. But this only goes out once.


    Again, you can use usergroup promotions and usergroup permissions. So you can have a usergroup which a user gets promoted to after 30 days, to which you can revoke view permission. But this is out of the box xenforo functionality and you don't need PemBer for this.

    Best Regards,

    Above where you say make a user group where the person has been a member for x days.

    That is available on PemBer but not xenforo correct?

    Thank you

    No, that would be a User Group "Promotion" which is a default xenforo function.

    No problems. XenForo is a great software for membership so if you need a paid community or member management you should go for it.
