Need help copying(replicating) a module in vB5 connect...

Don't know if this is the right forum for this or not but I need to copy or replicate the Articles module in vB 5 so I can use it on my homepage.

That said, does anyone know how I could do this?
I tried using the Search(JSON) and the Activities module with no success as neither one would present article previews with images and the "read more..." option.

PS. I already opened a ticket with vbulletin support and was told to come here.

What you are trying to do, I think, is pull in the articles activity stream and list it in a column beside the forum activity stream? This can probably be achieved using the .load() JQuery method and a custom template. Custom modules can also be fairly easily written to be used with Site-Builder.

Well, I was planning on moving forward with this, but I see not even 24 hours after your request for help, you've thrown in the towel. Thanks for the heads up. At least I'm not wasting my time.

Hello and thanks for responding. As it turns out, vBulletin 5 connect is not what I was looking for.

I posted here at the recommendation of support. But in reality, I can do what I'm looking for with and older version of vBulletin and vBadvanced without asking /waiting for customization /mods to mature. Which btw. wasn't my intent to begin with, as I was under the impression that vBulletin 5 Connect came with the capacity to make custom modules and/or use the same modules on different pages. - but as I discovered, this is not the case.

And so rather than sit on 400 dollars and a license I don't need, I'd rather place the funds elsewhere to help move my project forward.
