vB Version: 3.7.0 Rating: (9 votes - 4.78 average) Installs: 102
Released: 16 May 2008 Last Update: 16 May 2008 Downloads: 427
Not Supported Code Changes Re-usable Code  

*** This is the same hack in the 3.5.x and 3.6.x sections, just thought I'd add it here too to keep continuity and to allow easier searching should someone need this functionality ***

Well, this was asked for by many people (me included ) without ever being done so things are never done for those who want but not prepared to do for themselves! Thus, a hack is borne!

This hack does what it says on the label. Having come from IPB to vB, I was surprised to see that a default "Send HTML email" from the adminCP was lacking as I used it in my IPB board for newsletters and such. This hack adds the ability to use the default email template that sends plaintext emails or, but toggling the radiobutton, will send HTML mime emails.


Unfortanatly, I am not familiar enough with vB's hooks/plugins so it is done with 2 file edits but I'm sure that it could be done with a plugin if someone ever feels the need...


Step 1:
In admincp/email.php find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Directly below it place:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Step 2:
In admincp/email.php find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Directly below it place:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Step 3:
In includes/class_mail.php find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


(you may modify this hack at will... No permission needs to be granted)

**Tested and works for vB versions 3.5.0 to present (3.7)**

it works perfect !! although the file edits are minor but still it would be amazing if such feature comes as a plugin with a WYSIWYG editor interface and option for storing newsletters in database and even display them on a separate page for public viewing.

I wonder, why vB doesn't has it ??

There are things like Commbull (is this still being developed?) and GAZ for very robust newsletter handling...

What this does is literally for those of us who just need to send HTML via the adminCP.

But, I do agree that with the size of some vB communities and the knowledge that most sites send out a newsletter of some description that there hasn't been some sort of addon to facilitate this from vB. Seems like missed market share as anyone who desperately needs a newsletter solution has to spend several hundred dollars to use Sendstudio or Oempro.

Oh well, in the mean time, I'm here!

Any chance of this using no file edits in the future?

So, erm... No, not from me and I think it hasn't been done already is because the required hooks aren't where they need to be for this to be made into a plugin.

came from IPB too. yea i was wondering to myself (searched here to check) "does it auto parse html?" the help file makes no mention of it!

great feature stock or aftermarket. well needed. *installed*
