vB Version: 3.5.0 RC3 Rating: (8 votes - 4.00 average) Installs: 318
Released: 13 Sep 2005 Last Update: 14 Sep 2005 Downloads: 1867
Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files  

A port from http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...threadid=70223.

Though this release is quiet different, as it's been completely re-written for performance and uses the data-manager, and includes a well requested feature from the last version of compatability with secondary usergroups.

Description:

Allows admins to send a pm to all members within x primary usergroups AND/OR x secondary usergroups. See preview for more information really, it speaks for itself.

Simple installation, phrased, nothing else needed right?

Oh, and just incase you decide to ask, "But didn't beebi already port this mod?", the answer is yes, however without my permission.

So uhm, enjoy

Server load over 50???? I think thats impossible.


Your problem (like mine) is for example if you have more users than 5000, and most of them have "notify me on new PM", the server will send emails all together. You need to go to your vBulletin admincp and switch to the batch email sending.

What this will do is simple, instead of sending thousands of emails at a time, it will divide them into a number you specify. So for example, you could be sending in groups of 50 emails or more, depending on how reliable your host is.


For example I own a board with around 7k users and dont use the batch system because my server hardware can handle it. And server load never goes higher than 3.5!

The plugin is reporting a fatal error in admin_masspmall.php and does not send PMs to all members. Is this extension working with vB3.5.0 ? Thanks

Well nothing is imposible, next time I will take a screen shot

Back to the problem, I already have batch emailing option turned on, and set to a low value. Still unable to figure out what is problem. May be its a good idea for me to use batch emailing instead of using Mass PM feature for time being.

Infact I seen another Extension about sending Newsletter which pause for one min after sending every 300 (or what ever number you set) emails. This help to maintain server load. I think a similar feature within Mass PM will be very helpful.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

So basically this product isn't safe. Any forum is going to come to a crawl if we use this product on a larger usergroup.
