Unsubscribe link for users to opt out of emails and/or newsletters
Mod Version: 1.00, by benstillman (Coder) benstillman is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.4 Rating: (9 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 67
Released: 08 Jul 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 292
Not Supported Uses Plugins  

Same as this, but tested on 4.0.4.

I send HTML newsletters via the "email users" in the admincp. I add this link to the newsletter so that any users who longer wish to get the newsletter can unsubscribe.


This is a fix for Kirk Y's version for 3.5.4.

Heugabel also ported Kirk Y's to 3.8, but his version was set to double opt out. This in itself can set off spam filters/black lists.

This version fixes the security token error seen with the 3.5.4 version.

So going back to basics, just download and install the product. Then, where ever you want to add a link for users to unsubscribe from admin emails, simply put: http://www.yourforum.com/misc.php?do=unsub. When a user clicks on it, it will ask if they're sure they want to unsubscribe. They click yes, and the option in their UserCP to receive admins emails is set to no. That's it.

There is one template created titled cancel_email_subscription. This is the page they'll see when unsubscribing. It's very basic, and easy to edit.

And lastly, it puts a box on the "send email to users" page that simply says:
"This is the string to use if you want to add 'click to unsubscribe' link: Unsubscribe: $bburl/misc.php?do=unsub".
You can use $bburl/misc.php?do=unsub from the admin cp.

Is there anyway of doing this so that the user is not required to be logged in when unsubscribing?

Not securely. Then anyone could unsubscribe anyone else.

I'm 99% sure it does. It's working on my 4.1 beta dev site.

Well, I could unsubscribe, but I don't see it affecting the checkbox (admin emails) in the usercp.
And no matter how I set the checkbox to receive admin mails in the usercp, the unsubscribtion page will always tell me, that I have already unsubscribed.
I though this addon will just set this option of the usercp in an easier way?

Not sure bud. It's working fine on my 4.1.1 dev site. All it does is change the bit for the adminemail option (useroptions 16 in the xml bitfield). Sounds like maybe your bits need rebuilt?

This doesn't seem to include the string to unsubscribe in 4.1.2?

Will this stop all Admin emails? Like private message and subscribed thread updates?

Anything that checks to see if the user has "receive emails from administrators" option checked or not.
