vB Version: Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 4
Released: 07 May 2001 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1
Not Supported  

First up, huge apologies to everyone who has been waiting for this hack... I actually got it to the state it's in now about a month ago, but never really polished it off after I joined the vB Dev team... and then I completely forgot about it.

So sorry about that.

Installation is a breeze. Simply unzip the attached file and copy commbull.php to your admin folder. When you run the script for the first time, it will detect that you have not altered the user table to include the receivebulletin field, and add that field for you. It will also display the necessary information about what alterations you need to make to the modifyoptions template, and the member.php file.

If you ever want to view the installation instructions again, there is a link at the bottom of the main page.

Once installation is complete, the rest is really very easy to use.

You may find that this hack is a little rough around the edges, but I'm afraid I just don't have the time to dedicate to polishing it right now, so if anyone wants to have a fiddle with the code, be by guest.

You will need to upgrade to at least Release Candidate 2 to use this script.

looks very cool. A few suggestions if anyone has a chance to work on it:

i) ability to send multiple sets of threads. I would quite like to be able to send all of:

- top 10 threads by replies
- most recent 10 unanswered threads
- top 10 threads by views


I imagine this just needs a repliaction of the code that generates the threads..

ii) a way to run this script by cron.

What a awasome hack!

Is it possible to send a HTML-Mail as Bulletin?

A Bug:

I have set "Get threads according to" to "Most recently posted" and get this. Look at the dates

Please excuse my ignorance, but as a soon-to-be vBulletin owner I haven't seen this one in use and really not sure what it does. Could I buy a clue?

From what I could tell, it looks like a hack for people to receive a certain (subscribed?) thread pushed via email instead of having to log on and pull it themselves.

Great idea!
My thoughts:
1) Be able to choose to send HTML mail using the standard header and footer
2) Instead of hacking the user table, it should just use the field for recieve email from admins.

I would like to make another Sug... I want to include a header and footer (advertisements / gen info text) on this email, can we add two custom fields for this?

Arkham, see this thread:

Some mroe bugs:
  • when selecting only Administrator Group (for testing) the script said there are no user ins the group (but there are). The same with a test group with only one user. Then I tried my self created mod groupid and it only mailt to the first user in this group
  • smae time and date probs like Streicher had!

Just a question, can you exclude forums from having threads/posts returned? Such as... I have a staff forum and don't want the "Hot Topics" from it emailed out to all my users.
