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.

i'm not sure those have anything to do with commbull ... those functions are native to vB.

PS - I think I fixed the problem with the multiple user groups ... uploading it now.

Fantastic installed with no problems, tried to enable the cron but I have a file missing, where can I find it?

Cheers all

includes/cron/commbull.php

Also is there a report that can be run to see how many have unsubscribed

CSS doesn't work in emails. 99% of CSS is stripped out by all web based email.

I can only suggest trying it again. I had no problem and I've asked friends to try and again, no problem.

The cron is disabled. I should not have the file in there. Most servers can not handle the load required to send out the newsletter via cron and I have not found a solution that works.

not really sure, but it's funny because when I click on "reply" to this post, I got that exact error message.

  • you have a valid email address entered in your UserCP settings

Then check AdminCP | Settings | Email Options:

Scroll down to



Set it to No. Or if it's already set to No, try setting it to Yes to bypass PHP (mail) and use SMTP.
Checked. Have anybody the same problem. any solution for this error?

Will this work with the latest version and will it work with the Suite? It was working fine for a client of mine and all of a sudden it is not working.. She has the latest version and she is using the suite..cms, etc..

Thanks

Delete all files starting with "commbull" in your /admincp/ folder. Depending on the version you're using:
  • commbull.php
  • commbull_functions.php
  • commbull_functions_preview.php
  • commbull_phrases.php
  • commbull_settings.php
  • commbull_template_html.php
  • commbull_template_html_new.php
  • commbull_template_txt.php
  • commbull_textarea.php
Also delete /includes/cpnav_commbull.xml
