DragonByte Newsletter is the latest in the lineup of DragonByte Technologies modifications, enabling you to send an automated newsletter to your members.

Uses
DragonByte Newsletter lets you send an automated digest to users, containing the most popular threads from the last week. Users have powerful 1-click solutions for either reducing or increasing the frequency of your newsletter (Weekly, Bi-Monthly, Monthly, Quarterly, Bi-Yearly, Yearly), as well as an 1-click unsubscribe button.

The newsletter itself can be styled and re-coloured based on your forum's preferences by editing the simple HTML templates. By default, it styles itself to look like the Default Style included in every vBulletin installation.

The scheduled task ensures a limited amount of users are processed at a time, reducing server load and increasing the delivery rate of your newsletter.

*
For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

Does not respect the "Receive Admin Emails" setting. Members choosing "No" still get sent the newsletter.

This would be really useful if it sent CMS articles instead of threads.

There's no setting for this, the user controls it themselves.

Can we receive data on open rates? I'd pay for this service. We need a way to clean our email list too, as lots of bounces.
