I just have 2 comments. Although you have added the option of the 1st post not to stay on top in 2nd,3rd etc. page, the top comment post in every page keeps the appearance of the article post. Also still if you have BBcodes in the article, you see the code and not the result.

I don't know if its possible to fix those in a feature release. Thanx!
First Post/ comment issue will be fixed in next version. which bbcode is not displaying in the article?

I think, the long url (http://www.s8glive.com/forum/photopl...ylist_logo.png) is causing this issue.

I'm having a heck of a time with this mod. I tried it on my test site without VBA installed and everything seemed ok. Tried it on a site with VBA and when you go to post an article I get double navbars and the links to the editor icons are all broken. I looked at the path of them and it shows "Category" where "Forum" should be??? Any ideas?

This looks EXTREMELY promising at the moment. Looking forward to when the kinks get worked out.

Keep up the good work Banana.

Hi,

I have a quick question. Will your Mod work on VB 3.7.4 patch level 1? I didn't want to upgrade just yet, but I'd like to install this mod if it works.

Anybody know if it works on version 3.7.4?

Thanks ...


Mary

Great thanx!

For example I use a custom BBcode to re-arrange the article image in top left or right corner inside text. The BBcode is used at the beginning before text in the article. So in the articles page you see the link inside the BBcode tags and not the image. I assume it is the same if you use other bbcodes (youtube) for example as a part of the text.

I don't know if its possible to be fixed. It would be best not to show BBcodes in the articles page at all.
