vB News CMS
Mod Version: 1.2a, by davidw (Coder) davidw is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (4 votes - 4.75 average) Installs: 56
Released: 05 Dec 2006 Last Update: 26 Jul 2007 Downloads: 433
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Translations  

Very similar to vB News CMS for 3.5, but a some of the code was rewritten. This now works with BBCode - (This includes line breaks, URLs, smilies, etc.). I've removed several lines and taken out have removed the dual option for SQL 4.1 or higher as a lot of people are still on the lower MySQL

What does this do? It allows you to take your news from your news forums (up to 9 news forums) and display them in a category-style fashion with the ability to add new content, reply to the original story, send to a friend, and print.

This works only for vbulletin 3.6.0 or higher.

There is a 3.7.x version here

Install/Upgrade Instructions

Located in the zipped readme.txt file.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the forumid?
The forumid is the id of the forum you have created. Each forum has its own unique number assigned to it. When you click on a forum link you can see a number that is assigned to it. This will show up in the URL of the page you are browsing. Another way of seeing the forumid is to go to your admin control panel => Forums & Moderators => Forum Manager => Click on [Expand All] and then move your mouse over (hover) any of the forums you've created. Your status bar (bottom of screen) should display your forumid (number at the end of the link/url).

Changes

V. 1.2a Added security for admins
V. 1.2 Added support for Who's Online

Things in consideration for future releases

1) Menu system that dynamically displays a menu based on forum choices.

Known Bugs/Issues:
1) - When you go to the page directly, the page acts as a normal page - however, if you click refresh on the page, the refresh stalls. I don't understand why this occurs.

Exactly what I needed, thanx!

I'm using just one news forum, and I would like to have an "older threads/articles2 link at the bottom of the page.

Could anyone provide the code?

You could try the 3.7 version - it might work with 3.6 and there is a link on there for archives.

The first thing that pops in my head is use an iframe.

If you go that route, you will need to set up the database for the source site as well. The iframe would be the easiest way, but you could do it that way as well.

Do you mean vBAdvanced? If not, where is the vBalanced CMPS found (that way I can see if it might work)? Theoretically it should work with vBAdvanced.
