Community Bulletin:

This mod grabs all the latest information in your forum (posts, threads, events, birthdays, etc) and puts them into a newsletter to be sent to all your members that subscribe.

This mod has been around a long time and gone through many versions. It has been a paid version for a number of years with great success, but it's time to pass on the reigns.

[edit Feb 03, 2011]
Attempted fix for sending to users that are part of multiple user groups

[installation]
- upload some files
- upload the product.xml
- make 1 mod to the usercp options template
- FULL DETAILS in the README.txt

[note] many people ask why all the images, etc don't show up in the HTML version of what is in your forum. This is because most mail clients strip out the CSS and vbulletin is 99% CSS. I have created an HTML version that is nice and clean, but is forum independent. If you know what you are doing, you can edit this HTML file and build your own newsletter.

I never thought about that ... that will definitely be something we will work on. We have officially put the development of Commbull for vb4 on our work schedule, as we are about a week away from completing the integration of our old forum design into vb4 and will need commbull up and running.

Oh, and I think, after a little usage, this is working for me on vb 4.03, without the cron scheduling ability. Which is just fine for me.

This would be a grand request for v3.8. It would work something like how vBA takes on the default style, right?

... so if it's only showing 2008, maybe the server date is wrong .. I'm not sure why this would be so. What version do you have?

. We just upgraded one of our forums to vb4 and the admincp is in another directory, so this week I'll be upgrading the code to vb4 compatibility and i'll be checking the directory stuff ...

However, today is Canada Day and I'm in a big softball tournament, so all this will have to wait till next week ... sorry.

misunderstanding. i didn't mean for you to change the code. Everywhere in MY code, I am using the vbulletin configuration settings to reference the files, so it should work. I'm not sure why it is not working for you, but I don't have time to go through my code to find out. What version of vB are you running?

There is a problem with the phrases in the xml file.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

The phrase above, overwrites the existing VB Phrase for settings. This is not really a huge problem, but if you uninstall Commbull, then it removes this phrase, which makes everything else in VB which uses it look funny, and you have to recreate the phrase.

This phrase should be removed from the Commbull xml file, so that this product neither installs nor removes it.



BTW, this is an awesome product, and I look forward to seeing what you do with it in the future.
