Just installed into my 4.0.1 test site and this is almost perfect for my needs, fantastic mod.

I do have some suggestions though
  • Make the word Articles/Article configurable, I intend to use this mod for a something that would be better titles as "Listing/Listings". As an example rather than a Reply to Article button, it would read Reply to <whatever the config is>.
  • Add option to disable/hide the Most Read / Most Commented / Top Authors boxes on the article homepage.
  • It would be great if it was possible to configure the location of some of the Article homepage boxes, for example I would like to Search and Categories on the left hand side, and Post New and Display options on the right.

Also found a couple of minor quirks
  • When you click on an article to view it, the navbar highlight switches to "Forum" rather than staying on "Article"
  • The mod seems to ignore thread prefixes and does not display these anywhere.

A fix to one of the quirks I mentioned above:

To fix this, open articles.php and find (approx line 372)


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change this to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Notice the addition of ', thread.prefixid ' at the end

At approx line 390 find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Immediately after this paste in:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You should end up with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then, via ACP Style Manager open the 'af_articlebit' template, and find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Immediately after paste in:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Save template and that is that

A really nasty hack to resolve another of the quirks:

To do this you need to add an additional option to ACP - Settings - Article Forum Options, where you specify a comma delimited list of all forum ids that are articles forums (i.e. 7,11,15). Call this af_allarticleforums

Then change the Easy Forms - Forms Tab (Process Templates Complete) hook code to read:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

A very nasty hacky way of doing it, but I am trying to avoid rewriting the core of the mod

I have the same problem when I click to try to read the article. When I turn off the hack as you say everything works fine.

Interesting mod, is there a fix for this? Installed.

When try to read, add or promote a thread or post to an article there is an error massage show. It's here:

Still the error stays. This 2 add-ons are both important for me. I use artcile forumsa as a different way. Is there a way to fix this conflict?
