Thank you. The only problem I can see now is that under Most Read Articles it doesnt have anyone even though people have read and responded and the same with the Most Commented Articles, both are blank. Cheers for those two it is fine other than the problem above

Sweeks, i second that. can't see anything in most commented and most read sections despite the fact that i pointed articles to a rather large category with several subcategories and lots of posts.

bananalive,

warning is fixed now, thanks. another suggestion: it would be good to have an option in articles' settings to turn on or off displaying articles link in navbar.

I figured I'd try to install this on 3.7.3 to see if it works...

I installed it, and went straight to the options to pick which forums/boards i wanted it to be applied to.

I changed it from what it was defaulted to, to a board in the staff only section.

Immediately, whenever i tried to open a thread in the boards that used to have the article system, it wouldn't open the thread. (see second picture in attachment.)

Also, across the top of every page there is an error message. (First picture in attachment.)

I realize this is a 3.8 mod, but i just thought I'd let you know what happened when I installed it on a 3.7 board.

Suggestion: An enable/disable option in ACP option.

i made "comment" button for default style, see attached file. i think it'll look better than "post reply" button for articles.

bananalive,
