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.

Holy crap this is great, kinda pissed I just spent $34 from a newsleter script from a member that sells scripts here and it sucks, nothing like the original community bulletin... I will tag this mod and hear from feedback before I switch over.

Thanks so much! I purchased Commbull almost two years ago, and it is an integral part of my site. So useful for those who cannot visit daily!

For clarification, are you allowing others to modify and distribute this, or are you seeking other coders to take it over and release it?

How much do you need paid to get the cron added back in so we can set it up so the newsletter automatically gets sent out again as we dictate it should be?

This is by far the best newsletter for VB.

SUGGESTIONS:
If you look at the other newsletter that is out for VB.... I suggest adding one feature where we can write up an article in a certain forum that will be called as the main newsletter article. So we can control some design elements of the newsletter and template. Just some ideas for the future of this.

Thanks for the this and all your work. Please keep this alive and developing!

the cron has been removed not because of the complexity, but because too many servers can't handle the load of sending that many emails. Most dedicated servers handle it just fine, but virtual hosted domains don't work so well.

Since we customize each newsletter with information from our other sites, a cron was no longer useful for us, so I never had the big priority to add it in.

As far as development for this, anyone is free to make mods and distribute it. If it's a good one (and tested well, i'll add it in)

Hi,

awsome add-on, one of my favourites!
And the long time missing feature "unsubscribing by clicking on the unsubscribe Link" has found its way into it.
Perfect

And it's not that bad, that the cron shouldn't be used. You should always check your Newsletter for Threads you don't want in it.

Thanks and greets from the good boy with "driver licence"...

Any plans on making this vB4? Or, would I be free to convert it myself and release it?

Like he wrote, it's open-source so also that will be allowed.
Hope only someone will make it ready for vb4 and also find the mistake with the cron.

Greetings
Hans
