The search isnt working for me and displaying all articles from all time.

Also, I cant find where to create a new article either.

Thank you.

Sweeks,

DB errors seem to arise when you try to choose a forum in Article settings while you should choose a category.

bananalive,

You're the man! It's just the mod I was looking for. Nomination for MOTM, definitely.

Actually, the display options/search is fine, I got confused on how it should be used.

But I still lack the new article creation

Yes it is working for me now when it is a forum and not a category. I just cant find where to create an article now.

Thanks for the sweet and fast update works a charm but still no create article anywhere

EDIT: Is there any way you could get this to work with just one forum? Instead of needing to use categories?

bananalive,

uh... can you bring all article templates under a category? like album templates, announcement templates and so on. that will make style templates list less crowded.

and regarding categories, point taken. thanks.

bananalive,

you're lightning fast man! other thing i discovered: in printer-friendly view it doesn't mention anywhere that it's an article. and one more thing, i think article posts shouldn't display user signatures.
