Not Supported  

vBadvanced has released CMPS 2.2.1 with a substandard fix to the News module bug that has plagued many vBulletin forums for months.

Volconvo.com and developer Sillysoft are offering a free and better fix.


BACKGROUND

In version 2.2.0, the problem occurred when when the maximum characters variable was set at such a number that it precluded the display of closing BBCode tags. (thumb: news_verybad.png)

Version 2.2.1 "resolved" the issue by ending quoted material prematurely, effectively ignoring the actual maximum character value. (thumb: news_bad.png)

Volconvo.com and developer Sillysoft have partnered to offer the following better fix for vBadvanced CMPS that respects your personal settings. (thumb: news_good.png)


INSTALLATION
  1. Find this line in [forumdirectory]/modules/news.php:

    Replace with the following code:

    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

  2. Click INSTALL.

Just to clarify...does this fix work with vbadvanced 2.2.1 or 2.2.0, or both?

Mecho,
It should work with vBadvanced with slight alteration. Please save that discussion for another thread, though.

Bad Bunny,
The line in 2.2.0 is slightly different. You can find it shortly under this:
// Strip characters and add "read more"
The fix will still work—in fact, it was originally created for version 2.2.0. I just assumed you all would have upgraded

This works well, but one issue.

Fix this line:



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

and replace with:


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


Otherwise a post with lots of images prints all the image tags in a row and stretches out the theme.....

I don't believe that problem has occurred for me or anyone else. Can I get some confirmation on that?
