vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 28
Released: 06 Jul 2007 Last Update: Never Downloads: 181
Not Supported Uses Plugins Is in Beta Stage  

Admin HTML Email: Sent as multipart/alternative so email clients decide whether to display HTML or plain text. This mod was not extensively tested, but it should work on vB 3.6.4 and greater, maybe earlier versions as well, but you'll need to check. Something like this was requested here.

This is different than what is currently available, as both text/html and text/plain parts are sent, and the email client decides what to display, i.e., non-HTML clients should show plain text whereas HTML-enabled clients should show the markup text. Again, "should" as this mod wasn't extensively tested. Call it a beta version.

Most vbmail emails sent from the the webmasteremail address are affected, except where $vbulletin->GPC['email'] or $vbulletin->userinfo['email'] are used as the from address. If there is no from address, the default is the webmasteremail address. There are no ACP options; once installed, it is on.

Not much else to say, so test it out if interested, and of course disable any similar mod beforehand.

first post, that's never happened to me before!

Thanks for this, I'm gonna give it a few tests, perhaps I'll not have to edit core files anymore!

Please, for crying out loud. Never send emails in HTML! They never come out right in large email providers, like GMail! They always look ugly. If you wish to use html to send a news letter, host a page and mass email a link to it or something.

Your mod is nice but. *awaits the flamming*

Simple paragraph html emails are fine, but people have been trying to send emails that are bassically a whole website, banner, navigation, ajax etc. Complete stupidity, email is simple, it wasnt coded for all of that html crap, so it comes out looks really terrible!

I rarely send text emails to my users. I always use html. and it comes out really nice in gmail....

no secrets, just use very simple tables and colors in cells.... and it goes through

Hi,

This mod looks extremely useful to me, something I have been thinking about for awhile - excellent job!

Quick question though: would their be a way to limit this strictly to thread/forum subscription emails?

Cheers,

~Regs.

Hi.

Is this mod still in Beta?

works with 3.6.8 ?

does it enable html in email notices about new replies too or just in admin-sent emails?

calorie did you ever tweak on this mod anymore? It works great but I have to install it when I want to use it then uninstall when I am done. Not a biggie. Just wondering.

So is this supposed to work with the "Email Users" form in admincp? Or how does it work exactly?

This mod works from the Email Users link to AdminCP. If you add in proper HTML tags to your email (i.e. body, etc) it will send it in HTML format as well as plain text format.

Hi, i installed this, and it worked fine and I was elated, and then the emails stopped working and starting shooting out html (ie, gmail started displaying html tags).

I realized that this happened when i sent emails and hit the back button.

But, it works great if you click on the menuitem "Send Email to Users" each time you want to send out a fresh email.

Hope this helps the folks who still use the mod, and the debuggers/coders.

A.
