[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!!

One problem when it posts the final bulletin to the forum.

Its all over the place and it sticks huge gaps between the sections.

I just found another problem in the HTML vesion (text version is fine):

In the "user info" section it reads "New Info:" instead of "User Info:" and I cannot find this phrase anywhere. I have looked through both PHP files.

So am I to understand you are now useing vBulletin to handle the phrases, I certianly hope so. I only got V,s when I tried the beta install. If you are then I'll give it another try.

Just gave it a shot, even though I already had parts left from beta installed. Installation went smooth with no errors. Best part is it all works great, but I think I may want to customize the html email format. Great job, definately worth the effort to install this

HTML post to forum: vB adds <br /> after each /n /r even when viewing HTML, but i think i've repaired that

HTML version: hmm, i'll look into it. It might be that i grabbed the phrase (or combination of phrases) from the vBphrases ... yup, found it! thanx

vb phrases: i'm using both, same as before. I use vB phrases wherever i can, but it didn't want to enter the data directly into the DB because of possible conflicts and different configurations between each user's vB.

Note: found a glitch with the saving of features ... recommend updating all three files

Is there an easy mod to make it auto click the next page button? in the last one there was and when you have 30,000+ members that next button becomes a task - thx!

Mikey ...
1. - to your first post, yes ... you didn't look hard enough because it's an option.
2. - why don't you have an adminlog, it's part of vB3?
3. - that's normal if u've tried to install it twice, or you had it installed with vB2
