DragonByte Newsletter lets you send an automated digest to users, containing the most popular threads from the last week. Users have powerful 1-click solutions for either reducing or increasing the frequency of your newsletter (Weekly, Bi-Monthly, Monthly, Quarterly, Bi-Yearly, Yearly), as well as an 1-click unsubscribe button.

The newsletter itself can be styled and re-coloured based on your forum's preferences by editing the simple HTML templates. By default, it styles itself to look like the Default Style included in every vBulletin installation.

The scheduled task ensures a limited amount of users are processed at a time, reducing server load and increasing the delivery rate of your newsletter.
Major Features

Automatically Chosen: Threads are chosen and ordered based on an advanced algorithm to display the most popular threads first.

Automatically Sent: Newsletters are sent automatically based on the user's preferences, no admin interaction required!

Performance Oriented: By limiting how many users are processed per batch cycle, the performance of your forum will not be impacted.


Major Features (Pro)

Forum Exclusion: Have a spam section where members can post as much as they want? You are able to fine-tune what source forums the newsletter pulls its threads from.

Introduction Section: Want to write a custom introduction blurb for your newsletter, e.g. sponsorship links or similar? You can define a custom block of text to appear above the thread list.
