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.

Hope only someone will make it ready for vb4 and also find the mistake with the cron.

This. Won't upgrade to 4.0 without Commbull port, even though we already have a license.

Oooh going to test this now, thanks

/me marks as installed and will post back if problems but looks good imo!

Edit: Can we get an ETA or a word from the author if a 4.0 release is around the corner or even planned? - Thanks

I don't think he is. That's why he's releasing it OS here. He doesn't have time to work with it anymore.

I installed and sent my first newsletter. I even added extra text and an image or 3.

Sent without a hitch, and looked great when I received my copy.

Thanks grandeur69

Assuming it uses the vb mail queue, then that problem can be overcome with this ;

The fact he has released it here as re-usable code tells me that the author has no time to upgrade it, and has left that task to others.

It would be nice if someone would take this add-on under his or her wings.
