Hi to everybody.
I've found very confusing that, when i click on What's New and there is a new article or a new comment, the page What's New links me to a thread with some text and the article comments.

Now, i'm not a developer but i've found a workaround to be make What's New to open directly the article.
I know that it's not w3c compliant and that it's not a perfect solution, but it works.

Step One: add a new bbcode

Go to Add New BBcode

Title: Redirect
BB Code Tag Name: redirect
Replacement: <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; url={param}">

Save!

Step Two: edit vbphrase comment_thread_firstpost

Go to Search in Phrases.

Search for phrase comment_thread_firstpost.

For your language, add something like this:


{1}
You are going to be redirected to the article. Please click here if your browser doesn't do it automatically ({1}).


Now you are done.
When you'll open a thread in the vBCms Comments Forum, you'll be redirected immediately to the Article!

I hope you like it.

Man this could be AWESOME.!!!

I HATE that there is an extra thread that has NOTHING in it, EVERY TIME an article is made.
A complete waste of space, & time. imo

I just go to the vBCms Comments forum section & delete them. lol


This would make that all go away. :D
