Hi,

having a few issues with the image uploader on this mod. Drag and drop leads to just the thumbnail created being placed in the article. On click then heads off into oblivion :(

I have trawled back over the 44 pages this morning and seems way way back a few others had that issue but I couldn't find a resolution for it. No real problems for a few of the forum members but for the average user placing and formatting external images is above them.

Sample article here http://www.coffeenation.org.au/index.php?action=articles;sa=view;article=1

Site is running Dream Portal. Uninstalled currently are PrettyURL & Extras, Highslide Image Viewer, Simple Audio Video Embedder to try and help debug.

Any thoughts or clues?

Greetings - I cannot find where to increase the number of characters allowed in an article description which results in not being able to post with the current settings and a long article. 

Much appreciate the assistance,
All the best

The description max is default 65,000 characters

If you need more you need to increase the field size for description

Greetings,

I am using SMF Articles 3.0 & SMF 2.0.10

I cannot find a setting to turn off the articles mod temporarily - does this function exist?  If so may I ask for some guidance in how to go about it? 

Great mod just need it off for a while. 

Thanks for all the great mods you guys provide.

All the best

A function for that does not exist. You can hide it with permissions though

Thanks once again - I did look into that option after posting but was hoping that there was an "on/off" switch. 

If I tweak the permissions there will no longer be an "articles" link on the menu, right? 

I appreciate your quick reply very much. 

All the best

Thanks for that - I'll most likely run into you again pretty soon - looking at some of the paid mods that I'd like - some really great mods available. 

All the best and thanks again

Is there a way to move forum posts to the article system? I want to use this as a blogging system and would like to move a couple of posts with all of their comments to it. :)

Not sure if it is in this thread or not (I tried a search) but, If you want to reverse the order of comments on an article, simply remove "DESC" from the line:

WHERE c.ID_ARTICLE = " . $context['article']['ID_ARTICLE'] . " AND c.approved = 1   ORDER BY c.ID_COMMENT DESC");

it is in .sources/Articles2.php line 2459

Thanks mate, this was driving me mad! lol

well, submit article is not available in a module, but EZPortal (also written by vbgamer) has a recent articles block

Sorry my mistake.I think about add article button and little preview.Simple portal also have a recent or random article block but I cant connect that options with SMF Articles.

I found this solution on one site:

global $smcFunc, $scripturl;
isAllowedTo('view_articles');
$dbresult = $smcFunc['db_query']('', "
SELECT a.ID_ARTICLE, a.title
FROM {db_prefix}articles AS a
WHERE a.approved = 1
ORDER BY RAND()
LIMIT 5
");

echo'
<div class="smalltext" style="text-align: center; color: #f9e9ac;">
   <strong>5 Random Articles</strong>
</div>
   <hr />';

echo'
<table>';
while ($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($dbresult))
{
echo '
<tr>
<td align="center">', sp_embed_image('topic'), ' </td>
<td><span class="smalltext"><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=articles;sa=view;article=' . $row['ID_ARTICLE'] . '">' . $row['title'] . '</a></span></td>
</tr>';
}
$smcFunc['db_free_result']($dbresult);

echo'
</table><hr />
', sp_embed_image('dot'), ' <span class="smalltext"><font color="#000000"><b><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=articles;sa=addarticle;cat=1">Add Articles</a></b></span>';


ant this is currently the best solution for me.If someone have better proposal please write it here.
This is great, thank you!  :D
