bananalive,

another suggestion: can you add an option to change article author and post date? i have an old forum on phpbb that uses mx_kb mod for knowledge base articles and i would want to move all the stuff from there to the new vbulletin-based forum. i don't want to appear as the only article contributor though.

It is a forum not a category which has denied all permissions subforums under it which arent used and that is all It has around 100 threads in it too. Its set to act as forum and all the regular setup.
