    Does VB 5 have the facility to auto generate announcements to individuals who haven't joined any groups in an allotted time period or a given number of posts?

    Thanks.

    Announcements can only be shown based on the criteria in the Announcement Module when you edit it via SiteBuilder
    Vote for:

    - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
    -
    *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
    - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
    - Highlight the correct navigation tab when you are on a custom page
    - "Quick Route" Interface...
    - Allow to use custom icons for individual forums

        It is actually a no... You can do what you want with Notices in the AdminCP. There is a variety of criteria you can apply to have them show. I would suggest using either notices or announcements though. Using both can get confusing.

          I have seen what you mean. Confusing to say the least, still I will play some more.

            I recommend the notices system. I've actually filed a JIRA a while back to combine notices and announcements. Announcements worked differently in 4.x so it made sense to have two systems. However with the changes in vBulletin 5, it no longer makes sense to keep the systems separate.

              Got it. JIRA is looking rather populated. I put a few things in myself but in the last few weeks there has been no visible response.

              Thanks...

              By the way, thanks to the person responsible for clearing the typo error from the title of this thread. I am currently using my android device and have to keep resizing the screen. (pain) Ho ho, forum runner might help but everytime I go to download, I get the message ' not available in this country'.
              Nevermind, I will switch countries next week, may have better luck there.

                I have been trying to get an announcement to work on the demo site. I must be doing something wrong. I have an announcement module on the page. I have gone to the CPanel and created an announcement...

                Notices versus Announcements
                by [email protected]
                I have read that the Cloud does not support Announcements but does support Notices. I don't see Notices in version 5. What is the difference between the Announcements I'm familiar with and the Notices?...
