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.

The following dependencies were not met:

This product is not compatible with version 4.1.11 of vBulletin. (Compatible starting with 3.6.0 / Incompatible with 3.8.99 and greater)

What are my options?
  1. Edit the product file: product-Commbull4.xml


  2. FIND at line 7:


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


  3. CHANGE TO:


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


  4. Import the edited version of the product file.

Thanks, djbaxter, that does allow the xml file to be imported.
Either I am doing something wrong, or the commbull offered here is just not up to the old Pro version. I would have thought that when the pro version was abandoned, this open version would have been upgraded to that level.

It was great to be able to limit the newsletter going to active users in the last XX days!

Am I right or am I missing something? (Hopefully missing something)

I see that the version I am running on another site is version 5.0, and it is complete and great...

I'm still running an older pro version, too (4.3?). Has a minor bug or two but still chugging along doing what it should.

yahoo! I am back to where I was before I started on this ill fated circle

I am going to do what I should have then. Ask...

I have suddenly started to get an error when I click the preview html.

*************

Not Acceptable

An appropriate representation of the requested resource /forums/admincp/commbull_textarea.php could not be found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

*************

What might cause this, the file is there?

Thanks,

Just upgraded VB 4.1.12 to VB 4.20 PL 2 and now Commbull doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Check to see if you've got the "Use Cron Based Sending" enabled, if so disable it as this allowed it to work again for me. Was suggested HERE.

I didn't need to adjust the other settings suggested, only the cron based sending one and after that it worked fine.

1) Does anyone have a screen shot of what the incoming html email looks like? I'd like to see some samples

2) What do I have to do to make this work with VB Ver 4.2 ?

That would be a copyright violation because the 4.x versions were all paid add-ons. Try contacting the developer, grandeur_69, via PM from this site.
