VBCMS Threads promoted to articles link to forum thread no more article pages
Mod Version: 1.00, by Ohiocustoms (Member) Ohiocustoms is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2012 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.8 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 22
Released: 01 Aug 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

What does this mod do?
Everything will lead the user to the forum thread and no longer open an article page. The pencil edit icon will edit the post.

Who should use this mod?
Only use this mod if your articles are promoted from the forums only. Vb software has always been about forums at least for me. I like all my content in the forums and not scattered in articles and blogs. I'm sure there are others that feel the same so that's the reason I'm sharing this mod.

Once again DO NOT use this mod if you create articles from the home page or promote articles from blogs.

How to install
Admincp>Styles & Templates>Style Manager>Edit Templates>Vbulletin CMS Templates

Edit
vbcms_content_article_preview

Select all and replace with the code below then save

This will remove the create article on the home page. Just to make sure no articles are created.

Good, i installed it, the bad thing is that if u edit the post, your article still the same...... i mean, it still being separated things..... if you would take the post content and then show it as article would be a different thing.....

So i have to uninstall it because if i need to edit the article i have to do a large way.....

Damn CMS and its lacks of configuration options

Valid point but you have to do that without this mod already. I'll see what I can do though.

When you promote a thread it automatically creates a thread linking to the atricle and kind of defeats the purpose of this mod.
Is there any way to stop it from making a new thread??

Are you talking about the comment thread for the articles? if so go to admincp>settings>Content Management>Associated Forum for Comments>then disable comments.

Post a link to your site if not so I can see what you are talking about.

if have adjusted the path to the edit-option

pro: now you can edit your articles in cms, that means you can change category and other cms-options as well.

The bad thing is that the number of comments will not show on the cms page (because the comments are everywhere in your forum instead of the thred "cms-comments".
