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

ive installed version 0.2 but when i try and add an article the submit button doesnt work.

You can click it and thats about it, doesnt do anything
Repec , could you check your template vbArticles_addnewarticle.

Better still overwrite it with this one ( same one taken from the template folder in the zip file )

i got one comment though, when you submit an article the redirect page flashes by, u cant even read what it says.

Is there a way to make it go slower so that you can what it says?

And maybe another suggestion, can you make it so that a user can edit his or her article after it has been validated?

Gone through it briefly.
Looking good on localhost

I dun think I will package this as an add-on , but rather , to merge it to be part of the hack. Seems logical some might want hits counter for their articles/tutorials etc.

Will go thru it in depth and make the neccessary changes and push out the next beta version with hit counters hopefully by tmr.
Thanks Kars

Re-download the attached zip package and read the upgrade txt file carefully if upgrading. Instructions on how to upgrade from both version 0.1 and 0.2 are included.

For fresh installation , pls read the readme txt file contained in the zip package

Yet another update! Good news! I always like new features. Thanks, cing.

Edit: Got a question. What exactly does your install file do? I need to know the querries. In order to do what I'm trying to do (install the same hack for different sections of the same site in one database), I'll need to change the querries some.
