Force new users to read a topic on first login.

Disclaimer: I give no guarantee that your users will actually read and comprehend the information you direct them to. In fact, I can't even guarantee that they'll look at the topic. The word 'read' in my mod refers to SMF's definition, that is, to view the page. Apart from that, this mod cannot and will not do anything further to ensure that your users actually know anything about what you redirect them to.

To upgrade, simply install the new package and the upgrade script will run. Once done, remove the old package.

If your theme has its own versions of the language files Modifications.english.php and/or Modifications.english-utf8.php, OR if your using a language other than those supported (listed above) by the mod then you will need to copy the language strings into each custom version of those files.
