v3 Articles 1.0.1

By John Warwick, Web Development Freelancer (john@eovieinteractive.com)
Fully tested and working on vBulletin 3.0.1.
Part of www.v3arcade.com

Important Security Fix - Please download v3 Articles 1.0.2.zip
---
If you are upgrading, please read Security Fix Upgrade.txt
If you are installing for the first time, read Instructions.txt


INTRODUCTION
v3 Articles was originally written for the fine people at www.DodgeTalk.com, for use with their vBulletin forum. The purpose of this add-on is to provide a place in vBulletin for articles (e.g. news, reviews, editorials) similar to that of the thread interface - but with a more content-oriented approach.

Features:
- Usergroup based permissions
- Full editing/deletion/moderation system
- Article attachments
- Article ratings
- Comments system
- "Featured Article" system, give great articles top exposure
- Introduction and category description text
- Smilies and icons
- Full BBCODE/WYSIWYG support
- Attachment captions
- Full page navigation for articles and comments
- Comment dupe checking
- Status icons
- View users' ratings in their comments

Alternatively, check the screenshots!

I've tried to make the installation as quick and painless as possible. Enjoy!


WORKING DEMO
You can see a working demo of v3 Articles at www.v3articles.com. (Part of the v3 Arcade website.)


MANY THANKS
- Ron Wilson, of DodgeTalk.com
- Everyone on v3Arcade.com who donated to keep the server running


SUPPORT
Support can be found in the v3 Articles thread on vBulletin.org, and shortly on v3arcade.com. (I'll set up a priority support system.) As always, I'll happily give support for real problems. However, a lot of the time people ask questions about things which have already been answered hundreds of times. If you have a problem caused by not reading through the instructions or checking through the support thread, I can't guarantee a response.


DONATIONS
v3 Articles is free, but my server isn't! Any donations are hugely appreciated in order to help me keep my v3 sites running. (PayPal: john@eovie.com). Many thanks to those who donate!
If you're looking for someone to install v3 Articles for you, email me at john@eovieinteractive.com.


PLEASE CLICK INSTALL
Needless to say, if you install this please click the "Install" button. Thanks.

Awesome hack, John. Thanks.

Minor issue: Getting a red X on the article index when I don't choose a post icon. :ermm:

Everything seems to work... very cool, great installation.
Problem is when editing cats, adding, deleting, whatever.
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: build_datastore() in /home/okiewan/public_html/forums3/admincp/article.php on line 224
It does however make the edit.. ie; edit cat, submit, error, but cat is edited.
Thoughts?

You could always use an absolute URL, e.g. $vboptions[bburl]/article.php.

Oh, a database error - that's plenty to go on. Care to elaborate?

Try overwriting the article_level2_post template with this:

I presume you've followed the instructions, and saved usergroup settings and vBulletin options?
