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'm trying to get it to vB4, no promises though, of course. grandeur_69 will very likely beat me to it ;P

Great product and thanks for making it free. I'm having a problem getting the 'Show info starting from this date' option to work. I set it for Jan 1st 2010 and choose 'yes' for the option below to activate it, yet when I generate my newsletter under 'most replied' threads it shows threads from way back in 2008 which are old but have lots of replies.

Is there a bug?

Anyone have a fix for this???

so as not to continue to repeat myself, please read all posts. These images are included in it's own zip file as not everyone wants to use this

This is very nice! and with the graphics folder installed it looks pretty good too. Thank you so much for releasing it.

Just one question:
Is there anyway to tweak the basic template permanently though? We'd really prefer to have the unsubscribe link under "Forget Your Password?"

Also... something to consider for any future dev.... It's great that we can write up a basic blurb to send to members and I suppose I can tinker with that area and make it look sort of like what I have in mind but it would be really handy if we could also have a separate area or two for newsletter specific articles to keep it more interesting for the regular members.

Thanks in advance for any help.

yea, you can modify the ./admincp/commbull_*_template* files. Unfortunately, to be able to put together so much information from various sources, I have not found a simple way to do the templates. Make sure you backup the template files before making any changes.

Thank you for your reply, I truly appreciate your time

Unfortunately when I open the template files that come in the download I'm fairly lost as to what to do to simply move the unsubscribe from where it is to where we want it. I can find "unsubscribe" easily enough and have been able to move it when tinkering with it while in the Combull area of my boards AdminCP but only temporarily. When I looked at the templates in the download it seems is a bit different and more confusing for me though.

I'm sorry to be a bother... I can just keep changing it before sending. I was just hoping there was an easy fix so I could save myself a bit of work over the long run by making the change permanent.

Thanks again!

debug mode is set when vbulletin is put in debug mode in your vbulleting config file (./includes/config.php)

i can definitely understand how this seems daunting. As each section of HTML code gets handled differently, I'm not even sure about how it will work moving the unsubscribe link to other HTML sections. If you search for
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

in commbull_template_htmlnew.php and then for "forgotten_your_password", you should find where to move the code pieces ... again, i'm not even sure that this will work, so test it first.

Thank you so much. That really helped clear things up for me. Sometimes it's really hard to know where to start and stop a cut, paste, etc.

Anyway, it looks like that worked. The link is where we want it and it looks like it goes to the correct path: /forum/admincp/$commbull_unsubscribe.

Thanks again!

in your ./includes/config.php file, you will have something that says $vbulletin->debug = 1; (or something like that). you can just delete the entire line.
