With this addon you can enable a widget for the sidebar of the network tab, which will be displayed for new members. It contains a linkt to friendicas introduction pages at /newmember and optionally
There is no extra styling added for this added, so it should work with any theme you have selected, or your user selects. But it was only tested with duepuntozero,quattro and clean.
You want to test it, but you don't want to create a new account? Take your fav text editor (yeah emacs will do as well) and edit the newmemberwidget.php file. In line 39 you will find a if clause, just add a ! infront of the
right after the bracket following the if. That will negate the requirement of being a new member, so don't forget the remove that ! again after testing ;-)
If you want to translate this addon, please grab a copy of lang/C/message.po and copy it to lang/XX/message.po where XX is the language you want to translate for (i.e. de, fr, nb-no). After you translated the content go to the root of your friendica directory and run
php bin/console po2php addon/newmember/lang/XX/message.po
to translate the message.po file into the strings.php file needed by friendica to catch your translations.
With the translated files, either do a pull request at github, or send me the two files (message.po and strings.php) you just worked with as attachment to an email.
