Background
Required a section on my site to display articles/tutorials
No such hack in the Hacks Database
Decided to try my hand at it


ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
This hack uses a lot of code from Arunan Sridharan's vB Links Directory v2.0
I use that hack too and was inspired to code something around that
A big thank-you must go out to him for coding the Links Directory in the first place (I merely modified much of the code to suit my needs for this hack)

Appreciation also goes out to Kars10 for aiding me in this hack
He coded the portion in version 0.3 on number of articles count as well as article hits count
He also suggested several template changes which have been incoporated into version 0.3
A great big special shout out to TheComputerGuy, 97cobracpe, dontpanic for stamping out the bugs with your fixes. Thanks guys

I lost the old code in a comp crash.

Have redone some coding for my own site which runs on 3.0.1. Everything is pretty hardcoded though, but that's fine cos it's for my own site.

But since there seem to be other hacks around now that do the same thing, i shan't be investing time and effort into getting my hack published.

If someone would be so kind as to attach the latest vbarticles for vb2, it would be most appreciated.

Dude, you got this hack confused with another.
That's what happens when the name of the hack is similar.
