I was skeptical of the price, however, I went ahead and did it. I can tell you both as a webmaster, and as a coder of vBulletin mods as well as web applications, that this is a pretty nice tool. It's object oriented which will make it easy to update or mod. It's well laid out and you can tell that a lot of work has gone into it. More work than I would ever have time to do myself for such a need. It is far superior than another newsletter mod that has been around for years in both code and features. I hope that helps.

hey,
i've been using commbull, which has moved to a paid version for releases of vb3.6+ and it seems to work really good and has been around since vb2.0.

Have you used it and can you tell me the differences and if it's worth switching??

Thanks.

I've gone through and hit "save" on the usergroups, but nothing was changed..

I don't see how you can't see it ?

That is the "other" one I referred to above. Frankly, I don't think they can be compared. This one has far more to offer in feature set alone. And the code is well laid out. And I am sure it will get even better as development continues.

Hey Marv, it just isnt possible. there are too many core vb functions that are only in 3.6 that are used throughout the code (i.e. query_read_slave)

Sorry man
