THIS THREAD IS FOR SUPPORT FOR 3.0 VERSIONS ONLY. PLEASE VISIT THE APPROPRIATE FORUMS (links above) FOR THEIR SUPPORT

[valid point]
it's been brought to my attention that not everyone knows what this is ... fair enough: This hack is considered a "weekly newsletter" by the fact that it will email members (only sent by an admin) who have opted to receive it new posts, hot threads, etc ... basically a summary of what has been going on since the last time the newsletter was sent out. However there is a vast number of options, and I won't go into detail of all of them ... you can view the the images that I've attached, but u will only get a full idea by installing it.
I would say that there is 0 risk of this installation doing any damage to your current install as these are the changes that it does (manually and automatically):
- change profile.php and admincp/index.php
- add a couple columns to user table (receivebulletin and receivebulletin_type)
- add some phrases to phrase table (receive_email_from_commbull, type_email_from_commbull, newsletterformat, commbul)
- add a row to datastore table (commbull)
- add some html to nav template for admin side
So, if you are unhappy with the install. you can just ignore that it's there and it'll never cause any problems ... your next upgrade will overwrite any changes to the index and profile pages and the extra columns in the DB won't be an issue

[mods that i've added from vB2 version]
- to change languages, comment/uncomment line 22 and 23 to switch from English to German
- save prefs (option)
- skip to page X in case of mailout freeze
- auto redirect to next page (option)
- adding personalized text to top of newsletter w/out searching through the two text & html fields ... u'll c what i mean :ermm:

[INSTALL]
drop the 3 files into the admincp directory and then go to admincp/commbull.php ... follow the instructions and you are good to go.
If you find that the option isn't showing up on the control panel after the install, then it's because you aren't using the default phrases. Go into phrase manager, search for 'commbull' and update the fields appropriately.

If something goes wrong, don't worry .. it checks for already completed updates to the database to avoid redundancy ... enjoy!!

I have no plans to port this at this time. It's already a piece meal port that is a mess.

However, if I get the chance to see the posted code installed on a 3.6 install and a quick edit will fix it, I will make that type correction and repost.

But since I don't use this code, someone will have to step up and provide me a working example to see what's broke and assess any issues.


EDIT:
Oops, this is posted in the 3.5.x forums already folks.

Yeah, I loved this mod. Similar functionality for 3.6 would be a huge benefit.

Can anyone recommend a substitute? Even if it's commercial! Much needed.

Might voice your wishes over at http://vbmodder.com/forums/f2/another-hack-idea-86.html since the idea is being kicked around some.

Hi all ... I have re-written and upgraded this hack to 3.6.1 ...

However, the client that requested the original hack (and paid me for it) is claiming rights and wants to reduce the number of people that use it (mostly competitors). So, I will be putting it up on my website for $5 (maybe $10), but you will require Zend Optimizer to be installed on the server. This is a once-a-year fee to help keep the program updated ...
