This does not appear for me. The only admin option I get is "Delete". I used 2 different admin accounts to test this. Could the fact be that both accounts belong to sub-groups as secondary usergroups be affecting this?

Also...


New Questions

1) What about mass moderation? Let's say that you want to move several articles into a different category...or perhaps delete 20+ articles. There doesn't seem to be a way to do this efficiently. It looks like one has to go to each article and click the delete button.

Also, if someone puts their article into the wrong category (and the option to approve is turned off, or perhaps the admin/mod just spaced it and wasn't paying attention to the category), then the site is out of luck as there is no way to move someone ELSE's article. We have to instead ask the author to move his own article...this seems incredibly inefficient.

Any plans on resolving this?

Or is this supposed to be done via "Manage Articles" in the admincp? If so, my page is blank other than the field names at the top of the page. No articles are displayed despite having articles existing.

2) Currently, these areas of the vbarticles admincp are blank or have no data:

Choose Editor
Manage Articles
Editor's Choice


3) Currently, the Who's Online display says:

Unknown Location
/forums/vbarticles.php


Any plans on fixing that one?

I didn't got it Can you add a screenshoot or a link?
once we get this figgured out, I need to know how to change the default text background for the posted articles from a black back ground, to a white back ground...
cant read the text unless i change the color of the font.
Check it out:
http://www.smokinchevy.com/vbarticle...le&articleid=1

Also..
one other thing...
why does a ADMIN have to moderate the entire article again after the user makes a change to it?
Thats way too gay!
but if the admin dont moderate it again, if you click on the link for the article it wont show up
http://www.smokinchevy.com/vbarticles.php


yup.
But photos /tmp / directorys were not already there.
only images and video where there by default.
I had to make directorys for /photos /tmp /photos/thumbs.
I did chmod 777 those newly created directorys.
here is the screen shot url hope it shows up enough:

In your style's templates:

vbarticle Templates ---> vbarticles_articleviewbit

Find: $article_details[message]

Edit the "td" parameters that are right above it. By default, it appears to use either alt1 or alt2.

I added: bgcolor="#F5F5F5" to change the background to a light blue.

Hey Mary,

the mod you made here is really awsome! I have some questions & suggestions for the future:

1) Is there a possibility to get a page like your index.php?page=vbavbarticles without having vbadvanced installed? I don't use it nor any other portal system. Others users don't use vbadvanced as well. Could you create a .php where all the boxes from your index.php?page=vbavbarticles show up in a similar way?

2) How can I add a "Articles posted: X" and a "Top Author-Award" to my postbit template? which variables do i need?

3) Is there a possibility to show a toplist of authors, articles and new articles in vbarticles? I miss that feature. There should be a link to such toplists at the "top authors", "top articles" and "new articles" titels on the vbarticle mainpage.

Thanks a lot for your support!

bye
Vic

i really really really wish admin could edit the body of the articles, for one, its NOT illegal, if so vB itself would not exist, admins have the ability to edit any post

#2 example: a user spends the time to write a review and for whatever reason the user never comes back, and he has hotlinked to an image and the host of the image changes it to another image or the link goes dead, then admin can only move or delete a great review because he cannot edit the review

#3 example: same premise as above, a user posts a great review for a product with an external link to another website, that website changes ownership and now the link points to a porn site, instead of admin editing the review itself by simply taking the link out or changing it to a proper link, the admin is forced to delete a perfectly good review because the original user in no longer a member

I must agree the not having the ability to edit entries is a killer on this mod. I'm not about sit around and approve everything submitted by 3000 members. Not only would it severely delay the posting process it would be a real PITA. A few of my members are also allergic to spell checkers. Being able to edit something to make it readable is a necessity.

photo-posting works perfectly for me.


i agree to the fact that an admin is responsible for all text and grafic at a webpage so he has to have "edit"-permissions on articles. this fact should be published to everyone that wants to publish an article via vbarticles. the examples dsotmoon posted are perfect. as admin you can edit every single thread and post. why not add a forced "edited by [AdminName]"-tag when admin edits an article, instead of completely forbitting the edit-feature.

bye
Vic

ps: please excuse my bad english
