Ok, will only have the time and energy to put up a thorough description of Step 2 of this possible solution to automating the welcome email/ getting started guide... Hack #1 is over here.

Step 2: Install language translation into this page, so that it can be read by anyone. Images containing text cannot be read by everyone. Install it at the top.

Step 2 in detail.  Install Google Translate or Microsoft Translateinto the top of your Getting Started Page that you are Iframing into the new page on your site.  Remember that this is a single web page with all of the information that you plan to tell your new members upon being accepted to your community.  If you run an international community like I do it is very important to use clear-as-possible-language so that it is easily translated.  That page you just made should be either placed on a server or a Public Dropbox folder, so that you can easily make changes to the page and replace the existing version of the page at will.

 

Step 3: Create a new page by going to yournetwork.com/pagesand click Add New. This page will be a Members Only Access Page

Step 3 is simple.  Go to yournetwork.com/pagesand click Add New.  Set that new page to Members Only and 100% width.  Click the text editor so that you are seeing the HTML view of the editor. You're going to also want to place a bit of text before the iframe so that visitors to you /pages page will know what that page is about. Paste the following code in to Iframe that new page you made into it.

<p align="center"><iframe width="950" height="800" src="https://yourserver/getting-started.html" scrolling="yes"></iframe></p>

Save.

 

Steps 4 and 5 tomorrow...

This is what we are going for:
