Thank you. Super fast.

Also many people have custom bb codes. Those are displayed if included in the beginning of the article. Is there a way to disable those in the articles.php display?

Thank you.

Ok... I installed the newest release on my 3.7.3 board...

So far, everything seems to be working. I do have a question... When setting the option for length of description... (the default is -1)... I set it to 0 so it would have no preview... needless to say it previews the whole article...

I would install but I am too confused about how this works. Please try to be more thorough in the description and please also note whether this is compatible with 3.6/3.7 boards.

My main question is what this does other can create an "article" section. I want to install but not until I know the exact functionality. Does this allow me to take stickies in forums and make them into articles? Or do I have to create a sub-form for every post I want to be an article?

Any clarification welcome.

I dont understand. On our forum if the article goes onto 2 pages of replies the first poster on the second page appears to be the article starter with the nice postbit etc. Is there a fix already for this?

Thanks

The article should appear at the top post of every page. This issue was fixed in v1.2

It basically modifies the display of a forum and the threads in that forum. The forum list is replaced with this and the thread view is modified to look like this.

I have not tested in on vb v3.6 or vb3.7

Sub-forums are the categories for the articles to be posted in.

Creating an article is just posting a new thread in the article forum.

I disabled and the message did not pop up. (tried 5 times)

I re-enabled and it came back again.

It pops up EVERY time I open the article.

Edit: I'm using 3.7 and this is the ONLY bug I've ran into so far.

Did you get this error in previous versions of modification?

See if you have the hook location: showthread_query_postids

I don't remember this error before, but I was more worried about my other boards being unable to be used so I uninstalled very quickly...

And where would i look for that hook?
