Automatically subscribe a new social group member to daily email updates
Mod Version: 1.00, by nick_ramsay (Member) nick_ramsay is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.2 Rating: (3 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 36
Released: 09 May 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 108
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

My first contribution to vBulletin.org is a simple plugin that automatically subscribes a new social group member to daily email updates.

Why?
When new social group users click "Join", they probably think they are automatically subscribing to the group and will get updates, but they aren't. The default subscription is 'none' so new social group members aren't notified about updates unless they hunt out the "Group Tools" menu and click "Subscribe".

How to install
Download the attached xml file, then go to Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Download/Upload Plugins, then scroll to the bottom of that page and "upload the XML file from your computer".

Great idea!

Is there an option to sign up all existing group members to this automatically too? Is this possible, or perhaps an sql query would do this.

Thanks for the mod!

some questions:

if there is no update to the group that day, does it still send an email?

will there be a way for a new group member to opt out of this, if they decide they do not want the daily update anymore?

No such option, and since members are added to a separate subscriptions table in the database when they subscribe, it would take more than a simple SQL query.

Emails are only sent when there are updates.

Members can unsubscribe from the Group Tools menu in the social group.

I use a mod that makes a members social groups look like forums, so I don't really want to bug them with daily emails, is there an easy way to make them automaticaly have a no email notification subscription?
