carubmun,

i think it can easily be done, just create a new topmost forum category, move all your forums into it and assign it as article forums parent. voila.

Installed, but if you move (with redirection) a thread into another forum, the topic is still visible into articles section...

Can you set the option to select and edit 1 or more threads from index page of articles?

Would be nice. Will you consider adding this?
possibly in future...

I think they are thumbnails of any attachment that is in the article.

Indeed.

Thanks.

It was a simple answer then.

I never use attachments and this is why I missed it.

This is an excellent modification, thank you.

I have done a little playing around with the layout as I have never been a big fan of fieldsets, you don't get enough control over how they appear in different browsers.

So I did mine like this with a little mucking about with the code.

Apologies for breaking vb.org's table layout with this image:

I agree the original layout looks like ass.


So, are you just gonna show off or are you going to tell us how you did it.

I'm not trying to show off...

I will try and post the templates tomorrow...because they will certainly need to be cleaned up, I'm not very neat at this sort of thing. I can get the results I need but the chances are it will fail all sorts of validators. This is why I never, ever release anything formally and never will.

The avatars in that screenshot require a couple of changes to one of the plugins. And I had to create a second version of $thread[preview] because I just couldn't make the normal one parse anything....I am sure a better coder than me could sort that in a more efficient way.
