Hey all,

What is vBNewsletters?

It is a simple modification that adds a massive addition to your community! It gives you the ability to add a newsletter to your forum. It not only adds more features to your bulletin board, but can also help boost your member base as many forums find that members enjoy reading the happenings via newsletters.

Features

* Newsletter Page Added - ?do=newsletter
* Newsletter Switch Added
* Newsletter Title and Content Added
* Newsletter Release Date Function Added
* Newsletter Navbar Phrase Added
* HTML Ready
* Version Check Added (vBulletin Version 3.6)

Included in Modification...

* 1 Product
* 1 Template
* 1 Phrase
* 1 Plugin

Support

Support will be given at vBDiscussion.com and in this thread

Installation

Installation takes minutes as the product file does every thing apart from one small template modification which is to place the Newsletter link into your navbar! (This template modification is unneccesary if you have Menu Control installed!)

Thanks,

Marky

No I didn't include that because you could do it just as easily by manually emailing all your users from the Admin CP

Marky, I read that. Obviously your description isn't very clear…

I just looked up the word "newsletter"
a bulletin issued periodically to the members of a society, business or organization
You say it isn't mailed out? Does it even generate a newsletter, or are we writing the whole thing out ourselves? Is it simply an interface that spits out to the public some variable strings we input?

Again, what does this do?

The screenshots say more but the main features is that the modification creates a page on your forum (?do=newsletter) and you can then write your newsletter on there and release it periodically like you say. You could if you wish then email out a notice that your newsletter has been released. It's all HTML ready so it's just as good as emailing a HTML newsletter

I was hoping on a mailing out feature and that people could subscribe and unsubscribe. Such a hack would get my vote lol :-)

If this included an option to subscribe for forum members and the ability to send out the newsletter via email, it would be an interesting and useful add-on. As it is, the point of installing it escapes me, frankly.

Use Psionic Vision's HTML E-Mail Hack.

Any chance on a 3.5.4 version of this?

Very Nice. I love the idea.

I was wondering why doesnt it say
Viewing Newsletter
when your viewing who's online?
Is there a way to change this so it does?

People are just too cynical these days, Marky. I personally think it's a great idea for those that do not want to install a portal. Announcements just don't cut it either - They get read less often than normal posts on my forum. A newsletter is a great idea, especially if you have some sort of alert when a new issue is released. I can code that myself, though it would be a handy addition to this addon.

All in all, I'd give you a 5/5 on this one. Great work.
