vbJournal by Mary
Article Publishing Module
http://www.MicroHellas.com


Totally different and incompatible with my other Mods
vbArticles & vbNews

I just informed that there is another mod with this name
Except that I apologize to its Author for any trouble
I want to make clear that my mod has nothing to do with Blogs.



1.- General information

vbJurnal it is a combination (in features but in interface too) of my former (Free versions) vbArticles and vbNews. What I'm delivering in features in this 1.0.0 version is the main mod. There are nearly dozens of additional features that can be add on it, but everything is depending on it's popularity. If I see lots of installations, sure I'll spend time to add more features.

Some of the additional features that I've in mind are:
  • Text Search
  • RSS feeds
  • Assign a future date for publishing
  • Rating and Reviews
  • Video upload
  • Attachments
  • Article Pagination
  • Chapters
  • etc etc
Please note that I'm not planing to add subcategories. I don't like it to become completitor of my commercial modules

2.- Features
  • This module is mainly for use for Article posting with 1 photo. Unlike vbNews and vbArticles which are using 3nd party HTML editor, vbJurnal uses vB's Editor.
  • Editors choice Articles
  • Breaking Articles
  • Important Articles
  • Newest Articles by category
  • Most Active Authors (according to the number of post Articles)
  • All these blocks can be turn off in case that you don't need them, by setting 0 as the number of appearing articles
  • All these blocks are following the active category. eg Breaking news in main page shows articles from all categories. Breaking news while you're in X category shows breaking news from X category only.
3.- Installation
  • Step 1: Open vbjournal.php file with a text editor like notepad. At line 9 you'll find a variable: $mydateformat = 'm/d/Y'; This is set to default US date format. You can change it according to your country's setting eg. for UK d/m/Y or for other European countries to d.m.Y or d-m-Y. You can also add the time if you want. eg 'd/m/Y H:ia' this will give 20/8/2007 14:15pm. The reason that I didn't used the internal vbdate function is because that some users from Scandinavian countries, Spain and France had problems with vbdate().
  • Step 2: Upload the contains of /forum directory to the same directory where you've installed vBulletin
  • Step 3: CMOD following directories to 777
    /photos (inside vbjournal directory)
    /tmp (inside vbjournal directory)
    /thumbs (inside vbjournal/photos directory)
  • Step 4: For security reasons backup your database AND turn your board off
  • Step 5: Check at your AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Plugin/Hook System that Plugin system is enabled.
  • Step 6: From your AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products choose Add/Import Product and import the product: product_vbjournal.xml
  • Step 7: If you want to add a link to your nav bar then you must edit the NAVBAR template:
Search For:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add Below:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

....or use any other word you want
  • Step 8: By default none usergroup has permissions to use vbjournal, so you need to give permissions to any group. Goto AdminCP->Usergroups->Usergroup Manager and edit any usergroup you like to give permissions.
  • Step 9: In your adminCP, under vbJournal, choose vbJournal options and configure it depending on your needs. If you can't see vbJournal's menu, press F5 to refresh the page, or logout and login again to your admincp.
  • Final: Now, you can access vbJournal at: www.youdomain.com/vb_installation/vbjournal.php
4.- Copyright

The script cannot be redistributed, reproduced, or published in any way. Modifying this
script and sharing or publishing your modification A-N-Y-W-H-E-R-E (including here)without the author's written permission is not allowed, but you can modify it as you want but just for your own use.

In addition to above restrictions you can't develop and share addons for 3nd party scripts (eg for vBadvanced).

Maria

Hi Maria,

Is this a journal module or an article module? The screenshots both have "article" in them and the top paragraph of your message says:

vbJournal by Mary
Article Publishing Module
Thanks for clarifying this

Regards,
Renada

Even if I don't have very clear knowledge about the differencies between Journal and Articles, I believe that everything is depending on the usergroup permissions. By using permission for posting to a small usergroup you can use it as Newspaper or Magazine. By giving permission to a large group you can use it as Articles, or Stories, or Jokes... anything.

If you can give me an example for a possible use, I can say you if it's for you or not.

No. I will not develop anymore Lite and Commercial versions of the same script. This is a Free, with no restrictions mod and depending on it popularity or not, it will grow up by adding new features.

It dosen't has Rating & Reviews of vbArticles but it has some features of vbNews. As i wrote before, depending on its popularity or not, I'll upgrade it by adding new features.

No, you'll not get any error if you've vbArticles and/or vbNews installed in your site. It uses different tables.
