I asked myself a 1000 times, why this is not a standard feature.

thx a lot!

p.s. how is it handled? does the user have to log in to unsubscribe, after clicking the link in the mail?

It's done by basically unchecking the "Allow Administrators to send me Mail" setting in the UserCP. I was considering having it unsubscribe by userid, so you wouldn't have to login, but there'd be issues with people unsubscribing other users; at present, the logged in user is the one who's unsubscribed.

I wondered too why this wasn't a standard feature, a friend of mine's site had just recently been informed by Google that large numbers of their users had been blacklisting his mail -- which is I why I wanted this for my own board.

thats the issue i asked for, right! thx. others are the worst, as they always are. so this is the better way.

eh. perhaps.... more better.... to generate a randomized string added to the url.... so, if the user forgot the password, theres no trouble getting a new one to leave the newsletter.... perhaps for the next version? would be very nice....

e.g. you could easily take the md5-password as an additional variable to the url? so this would authenticate the user? unsubscribe-link: xxxxxx.com/xxxxxx.php?uid=123&identify=3458a89ae94498934 ....

japp. great job. will install this these dayz!

thx.

Hmm... interesting idea, kind of like the confirmation email. I'll take a look and see if I can replicate it.

After someone clicks on the unsubscribe, you get the following error:

Database error in vBulletin 3.5.4:

Invalid SQL:
SELECT username, userid, email FROM user WHERE userid = '2564' AND options &16;

MySQL Error : Table 'webattit_forum.user' doesn't exist
Error Number : 1146
Date : Thursday, July 20th 2006 @ 10:05:27 AM
Script : http://www.mysite.net/forum/misc.php?do=unsub
Referrer :
IP Address : me
Username : me
Classname : vb_database

Any ideas?

Man, I always forget to add table prefixes to my hacks, lol. Sorry about that, I'll fix it real quick.

Edit: Okay all fixed, just redownload and set Overwrite to Yes when you're importing.

Same thing was happening to me. I had to uninstall it.

I'll check it out after the fix.
