Try re-downloading and uploading articles.php now (remember to click allow overwrite)

Can you please upload a screenshot when creating a new article?

Sweeks 19 Apr 2009 16:45

Thank you it's working now. One question, is there a way to switch it so that it doesnt use the postbit template for replies and instead uses postbit legacy?

Another question, when I click the forums link on forumhome to get to the articles the link URL will be:

/support-articles/

but when clicked takes me to:

/help-articles/?c=188

after adding vbseo custom rewrite rules for article.php.

Is this okay?

It is possible to add pagination in articles? If not I suggest that :D.
