Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code  

Hi Folks,

Here's a nice little pluggin (No Code changes!) my programmer (Bryan Harris) came up with that sets the email type as HTML if the body of an email contains any HTML.

This is just a copy of the original 3.6 mod (165 installs!) - it works fine under 4.0 too! (See testimonials for earlier mods in the Similar Mod links below.)

This is very powerful and flexible, but also a bit dangerous. This means that any email your system sends out that contains any HTML will be sent as HTML. Which means that the whole email should be formatted as HTML.

So for instance, it makes it very easy to send HTML emails from the ACP - Just include HTML in your message! Same goes for users sending private email.

You'll also need to update some of the stock phrases for the registration confirmation email, password change, etc, that contain links or other HTML, and add line breaks <br /> so they still format correctly. And while you're in there you could add your logo and other nice touches!

It's just one pluggin!

Install time: a few seconds!

And I'd appreciate it if you clicked Install if you use it, and while your at it, nominate it for MOTM!

I haven't installed 4.1.3 yet, sorry. Can anybody confirm or deny that there is problem with this hack on 4.1.3? I'd be surprised if there's a problem.

Dang. I'm wanting to try it on my 4.1.4 soon to be 4.1.5 forum. But would like to know if it works first.

Does anyone have a complete list of which stock phrases need to be updated for this?

Question

I am very new to all of this, just purchased vBulletin 4.1.11 Patch Level 1 a week ago. How do I install this plugin? Do I just upload the .xml file from my computer using the ACP? Or do I have to physically add it as a new plugin? If so, what would be the hook location in the code? What would be the execution order? Forgive my ignorance, I know some html, a very small amount of css, and nothing about php at all. Thanks in advance!

P.S. - Nevermind. Plugin downloaded, installed, and tested. Worked perfectly! Thank you, bchertov, for this wonderful code!

I have a problem.
In emails which contain text from forum like PM mails, all lines are merged. Because this type of text isn't HTML.
Is there any way too solve this problem?

For those complaining it alters other e-mails negatively... why not activate it when sending an e-mail and then unactivate/delete? Easy enough. Unless I'm missing something?

it appears to be here.

I wonder if anyone has come up with a solution to the problem of e-mails that get the text all running together, like "new post notifications".

There must be some way to alter the phrases in a template and turn them from text -> html before they are output.

anyone here have an idea of how to get that done? otherwise this is a great mod

You need to edit those phrases to substitute html breaks < br/ > for the carriage returns.

since installing this I have been trying to add images and links to the emails sent by the forum.. im testing using the 'diagnose' email..

No matter what i try to add.. every URL is stripped fom the email when its sent and obviously links dont work with no href declarations, <img> has no src declarations etc..

how do i get past this??

All i am trying to do is add an image to all emails sent by the forum butfor such a simple task this is proving surprisingly hard!
