Have you tried to upload all the new files again and make sure that you overwrite the files and then install the product again overwriting the one you just installed? Sometimes it works. I've also installed the recent articles hack myself and I can view it logged in. So maybe there is something else wrong here like a current hack is not playing nice with the updated articles version. Something else you can try is disable each hack one by one and see if you still get the error. If you don't then you know the hack you just disabled is conflicting with this new version of the article hack. If you find the hack that is causing a problem try upgrading it to the latest version with all the hacks enabled. Then see if you still have the prob with the articles if so, you may want to temp or perm disable that particular hack or try adn find a hack that is similar to it and install it instead.

Edit: I also noticed that this hack is not compatible with vb 3.7. Are you running 3.7? If so yo may want to upgrade to 3.8. I'm using ti with 3.8.3 with no probs.

3.8 is what I am on. It must be another hack that is messing with it; I just have no clue which one This problem only arose when I upgraded to the last version (1.9?)

EDIT: Working for now. I will inform if the encoding error comes back.

There are a number of issues preventing this from happening atm.

Also, I'd like the sort of the page that lists all the articles when you enter the area, to auto sort by first article entered, kinda like a Table of Contents. I'm not sure how to make this a permanent sort, if possible. Appreciate the hard work, really like the format.

Thank you!
Change the phrase 'article'

Or if you only want to change the text in navbar edit plugin 'Links' and replace $vbphrase[articles] with your preferred text

Use direct link to articles.php rather than forum

Or find in Plugin 'Article Forum'

and replace with:

CSS 2.1 Validation

bananalive...

Just found out this mod fails when using W3C's CSS 2.1 validator. The vBa addon module fails as well. I've posted there, too.

On the upside...it's XHTML compliant.

Do you have a fix for the CSS issues?

After an article is read, the title of that article remains bold. While viewing the articles forum it is impossible to tell what has been read and what has not. I do like having the title bold as it helps it stand out but is there a way to show something that distinguishes between read and unread articles (threads)? Not sure how possible this is but maybe changing the color of the title would be an option?

Just installed this, created a test article and ran into a problem.

I'm using FireFox 3.5.

I get a script timeout error anytime I try to read one of the articles. This includes right after you save it and you're taken to the article. So basically anytime you try to view an article on showthread.php this happens. It doesn't happen to my standard forum threads.

If I hit Cancel on the script timeout popup, the page then loads from what I can tell successfully.
