And yes, you can use it as index page if you want. Just rename vbnews.php to index.php and modify paths and URLs.
what I'm saying is can the mp3s and files could they be placed on the index page kinda like the in the deck section is at www.raptalk.net

For Important News: Sorry you can't. It's a combination of code and template modifications.
It would be much appriciated for many people if you can modify the default code & make them to show at least 6 (i would recommend 9) for this option because 3 will show very little for the news page.

For people with the commercial version, will you going to help modify the code ?

A few suggestions for update:
- Show the date of the article posted in the article's viewing area and next to the article when listing in each category. (recommend under the short description.
- Always Listed newer articles first in the category so new posted article would show on the first page when listing.
- When clicking the category menu in the main page, it shows the sub-category under the main category instead of going to a new page & hide all the categories in the mainpage. And also, when you click to change the category on the mainpage, it would hide all other sub-categories and show only the current one. This category menu should show on every page. This would be very helpful for readers to keep tracks and changing between categories faster & easier.

Next version (Free & Commercial, will have all these values configurable. Especially for important news, will be configurable on how many news per row, for those who have a wide central block.

Already exists in commercial update. Free update has a bit delay.

Same as above. ALready exists, and is configurable by admin. Dont forger that someone may wants to show them oldest first.

Or I didn't got the meaning, or you didn't seen them well. When you click a category, the menu changed showing all subcategories and ALL content of the page are changing according to that category.

I'm not sure if I got your meaning... sorry for it. But what for sure I know, is that headers are changing like: category... subcategory... article title.

Thank you so much for your replying

What i mean is that. On the left side menu where it lists categories:

Left side Category Navigation

Main Category 1
Main Category 2
Main Category 3
Main Category 4
Main Category 5
Main Category 6
When you click on the Category 1 Link, it will show the sub-category like this:
Left side Category Navigation

Main Category 1
Sub-category 1
Sub-category 2
Sub-category 3
Sub-category 4
Main Category 2
Main Category 3
Main Category 4
Main Category 5
Main Category 6
And it shows the articles' contained in that category & its sub-cat in the center & right blocks like the current version in stead of going to the new page which contain only the sub-categories & a link back to the mainpage.

Also When you click on Main Category 2, it will hide the sub-cat of Category 1 and show only Main Category 2's sub-categories like below
Left side Category Navigation

Main Category 1
Main Category 2
Sub-category 1
Sub-category 2
Sub-category 3
Sub-category 4
Main Category 3
Main Category 4
Main Category 5
Main Category 6

This category menu should shows on every page to make readers selecting and going between category easier & faster.

I hope this would make you getting a little on what i'm trying to say !!

Testing this one now, and so far it looks interesting..
But I just wondered if it's possible to increase members post count when they post articles and comments on them??
(haven't read through all pages of this thread, so sorry if this has been answered before)...

Testing using a fixed style and have a couple of issues:

I am using 3.6.5.

1. The box for:
a. member menu
b. Author
c. Features
d. options
does not really use the default theme format.

2. When adding an article the edit article box exceeds the limit of the forum, in other words it sticks out to the right.
3. When viewing an existing news post it exceeds way to the right, actually, almost the entire post is out of the theme area.
The author box and features box take up the entire theme area.

Warning: main(vbnews/includes/functions.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/dannyabl/public_html/vbnews.php on line 84

Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'vbnews/includes/functions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/dannyabl/public_html/vbnews.php on line 84

Are you sure that you've upload functions.php at vbnews/includes/ and not in your_forums/includes ???
Also have you kept the structure as it's on the zip file?.

I really like this idea and can use it, but where does it get it's news source from? Can we pick and choose? The reason Im asking is because I run a gaming site and I would like the latest news coming from Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and so on.

Thinking it was obvious, I was going to say yes without checking but I thought i'd be safe an check, and you were correct, that was the problem. I had the structure wrong.

Thanks for the swift help.

Any chance anyone could help me achieve what the following screenshot shows? Basically I just want to change the order the news is displayed.



Also, because of this and rather importantly, my breaking news block isnt updating when i add new breaking news. instead the old one stays there and the new one is archived which is because of the order which news is displayed when new articles are added.

Would be really appreciated if anyone could help, once I get this sorted I will then look to purchase the commericial version for RSS.
