I just have one little suggestion and that is after you create a category and are putting articles into those categories, it would be nice if they were arranged in alphabetical order rather than the order they are put in... the irony is I just finished doing all my articles through Tp today so now im in the process of copying them all over lol thanks again!!

Can anyone help with a fix?

Very detailed answer - I know you do this for free and I honestly respect that...but... do we all delete the mod or simply put it on hold until such a time that we may get support?

I know this sounds harsh as the issue in no way affects the functionality of the mod but I'm getting headaches from my forum members complaining. ;)

Hey everyone...

I'm not sure if this is exceptionally relevant, but I found a similar mod that I'm using...it's kinda like this, but moreso toward a blog-ish format.

Link to SMFs mod page:
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1209 (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1209)

Link to developer:

Just in case something still isn't working with this one.

I don't think there was one on the main page since you are already on the main page no point to having the link tree.

Now everything is working great

But maybe you can do something with the TP Articles

Import every single article to a different article category , not upload all to the same category

Table 'xxxxxx_smf1.smf_tp_articles' doesn't exist
File: /home/xxxxxx/public_html/forum/Sources/Articles.php
Line: 2461

Note: It appears that your database may require an upgrade. Your forum's files are currently at version SMF 1.1.6, while your database is at version 1.1.5. The above error might possibly go away if you execute the latest version of upgrade.php.


It is the latest version: 1.0.1.3.

Any ideas?

Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.0.1 Released)
Post by: kpac on September 26, 2008, 11:57:26 AM
Yea, I know it means they don't exist... But why don't they? Is it not in the script to create them if they don't exist? Or do I have to create them manually?

are they in the same database?

Yes, they are.

That import option is meant only if you have created articles in Tiny Portal and wish to import them. If they don't exist it will not work.

Can I set it so that I don't have to approve articles and comments? I want them to appear as soon as a user submits them.


I also wonder if maybe a Preview option could be added like when posting a topic?

Can we have the number of new articles displayed somewhere? Perhaps "Articles [2]" in the title bar or something? Otherwise you have an articles section which is quite separated from the forum...

There should be permissions located in the permissions section of SMF that allows you to set those functions.

Nice idea added to my feature list for next updates.
:)

What I am trying to do is make a multi- community fiction archive. There are two out there, one in perl and one in php-- the php one includes a helluvalot of queries that my groups don't need, and neither of them have forum functions.

Since we're piling up possible changes, another one I would like would be an admin function that would let me change the author--  although I can do that in phpmyadmin, I suppose... or the ability to create a few more fields for my users to fill in. We could use them for co--writers, or genre, or XXX ratings :D

Are you using the default theme? If not you will have to modify the index.template.php of the custom theme to include a link to the articles section such as

I did find the articles section with the url like you mentioned, and I modified index.template.php, but I must not have done it right. I just added a button a couple days ago so I should be good when I get this one in there. Very cool mod btw :)

In the profile .. in the tiny portal section ( if you have TP installed) .. there is a link to all articles written by the user

 is it possible to have this link show all articles written with SMF Articles instead of / or in addition to Tiny Portal?

as it is right now that link does not show any articles written while in SMF Article


thanks

vbgamer45...

I'm using 1.0.1.3 on SMF 1.1.7.  Everything seems to be working fine...except for when it comes to XHTML validation once an article is created.

Here's an example from my site:  What are the jumper settings for Seagate ATA hard drives? (http://www.saviourpc.com/forums/index.php?action=articles;sa=view;article=42)

If you follow the above link and then click the validation link at the bottom of the page...you'll see that it fails validation.

Has this been addressed in an update of which I'm not aware?  If so, and I need to download the latest release...do I need to uninstall/delete the previous release before I install it again?  One thing I'm worried about is losing any articles I may have already created.

Hope to hear from you soon...and thanks in advance.

Hi,

I'm having the same issue with 'Links' and 'Articles'...

They are not even showing for guests or regular members (which is getting me a few mails from potential reciprocal link partners...   ::))

I'm running 1.15 (updates fail - I have a custom flash video recorder and it might be the reason why...)

From my admin account, links and articles work AOK (no issues noted on installation), however, guests and regular members don't see a links or articles button and get a 'password message' if they try to access directly from a link.

e.g.   http://www.besteikaiwa.com/forum/index.php?action=links;cat=10 

There's nothing wrong with the permissions (triple checked) - I'm not sure if moderators have the glitch or not...


Any ideas anyone?  (I'm really screwed here - I installed the links and went out hunting for reciprocal links - I have dozens of people who've been approached, but can't see a working link from me :()

Easy fix by deafult only admin's have permissions to access those sections.

You can setup permissions. Under Admin -> Permissions you have to modify each group and add permissions for articles etc.

Not quite so easy...  That's already done - the permissions are set (see the attached image and then have a look at my site - http://www.besteikaiwa.com/forum/ - and try to find the articles button or try to link directly to the articles page the permissions in the image supposedly allow - http://www.besteikaiwa.com/forum/index.php?action=articles;cat=2

That screenshot is for category level permissions which you can choose to enable or disable by default everyone has access to all categories.


You also need to setup global permissions inside SMF.

Which is found under SMF's Admin -> Permissions -> Modify each group

Hey Mr. G,

Got a quick question, you wouldn't just happen to have a upgrade package for SMF Articles (version 1.0.1.3 to 1.0.1.4)like you did with EZ Portal
would ya. Because that would make life so much easier, sence I have so many mods installed that the only way I'll be able to do the upgrade is manualy and being a blind user it gets kind of tough sence the only way I can edit all these crazy php files is with note-pad, tried to use note-pad 2 but my screen reader will not work with it, e.g. will not read the line-numbers as well as several other things.

     Well thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi,

Been reading back to try and find my answer - the above looked like it might be a place to start, but the link don't work no more...

(I'm trying out ezportal to allow users to switch between themes and am having trouble getting articles and links to work right - the 'most recent' still show through the ezblocks, but the full feature only lives on 'default')

I tried the 'manual install' instructions and modified everything that lived inside a 'theme' directory and left the others as-is, but wasn't getting this to work...


Any ideas folks?

vbgamer45...

I currently use this mod on an SMF 1.1.7 board.  Love the mod, btw.

Anyway...my question is this:  Is there any way to cut back on the number of "queries" it creates?

Right now, I have two categories...each having a number of sub categories.  When navigating to the Articles page, it creates 38 queries.  When going to a category, it creates 84 queries...depending on how many subcategories for a particular category.  The more categories/subcategories added...the greater the number of queries.  This may be of some concern...if it is to be used as a knowledge base...which is how I'm using it.

Is this issue being addressed?

The main page that looks bad is
http://www.saviourpc.com/forums/index.php?action=articles;cat=26

And that is mostly caused by sub category totals features that counts subcategory totals. Which adds two queries to each category.

I've adjusted the Articles settings to remove counting the child categories, but the number of queries is still high...even though it removed 30+ queries.

Going back to that link...50+ queries...

SMF Articles MOD - "Comments" link does not appear

Hi

Anyway, my problem is that when I sign in under a test account the "Add Comment" link does not appear but it DOES when I sign in as the Admin. I have all of the permissions set properly, it's not a browser issues and it's not a post-count issue. I am just completely stumped at this point.

I'm using SMFArticles1.0.1.5 with SMF v1.1.7 and the "Add Comments" link won't even show up in the default theme. Any help would be much appreciated. It's a great script incidentally.

Thanks, CSS

Thanks vbgamer - all fixed as far as I have been able to test...and no errors logged from users today.

I've had to disable the WYSIWYG editor though as its a nightmare when pasting articles in from other apps even when you run them through as plain text. I know this has caused others grief on 2.0b4 so nothing to do with your mod.

I'm getting another error that I am sure is related to this issue - its the same error I get logged on posting when someone uses the WYSIWYG editor heavily - and I've already posted on this issue at http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=283904.0 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=283904.0)

When I turn off the WYSIWYG everythings fine so I'm pretty sure its to do with the problems there.

Thanks for your fast response

One of my users has pointed out that when they rate an article nothing seems to happen. The rating system works but gives no indication that the article has been rated and leaves the user looking at the article just as they were before they clicked the rating button.

Maybe a message should be displayed to say that rating has been added, perhaps with a link back to the article category they were reviewing rather than the article itself?

Navigation from articles is limited too. There are no options when viewing an article other than using the back button or the main menu ARTICLES button/tab? On a category you have a couple of links at the bottom of the page, maybe these should also be on individual artciles?

Fussy I know, but that's the type of users I have!

Installed new 2.0 Beta 4 and Articles 1.0.1.7 - installation went fine.

Admin can see and create categories and articles and permissions - did that.

Gave type of user every kind of permission.

However, no one else can see any link to Articles - is there something I need to do so my users see them?

There should be a set of permissions on that page.  If you modify each group for each membergroup that controls who can see the articles button and other permissions such as adding articles, comments etc.

I am running a techie type site, and want to change it to the word tutorials instead?

Is this possible.... ( i am fairly new to SMF, so dont want to break anything by "fiddling")

Post by: oistarbwoy on March 01, 2009, 05:12:21 PM
my website is very complicated so instead of having large amounts of links/pages i am trying to keep things down to a minimum.

 I am using Simple portal... which has articles but they just arent as good as this actual mod. Which means i have 2 sets of articles hanging around. not good. i want them to be kept as boards aswell as articles

i was wondering if there is any way to do ANY 1 of the following. (In order of which i would prefer)

1.) have them share  database tables so they can both display articles that are the same. so if you replied to a post in the forum version it would display as a comment and vice versa.

2.) change the add article link that apears in topics from my simple portals article system to post into both tables.

3.) when posting a topic click a checkbox to have it also submit to article

if anyone can help me that would be brilliant ... thanks :) x

Post by: Kindred on March 01, 2009, 06:31:41 PM
The whole point of this mod is to SEPARATE the articles from normal posts...
(And you could use EZportal which links to this mod if you want a portal and articles system)

Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.0.1.7 Released with SMF 2.0 support)
Post by: oistarbwoy on March 02, 2009, 08:37:37 AM
right erm ok... i understand the point of the mod - i was trying to find out if i can change that.

As you quite patronising just pointed out it keeps them SEPERATE i obviously know that which is why I'm trying to find a way to edit that. Is'nt that the whole point of adding modifications and adjustments to your smf to get it to function in the way you want for your websites needs.

You didnt actually answer my question at all.

seeing as how my question was never "what is the point of this mod?"

ive obviously looked at all the portal systems long before i posted this, to look for an alternative. ez portal doesnt have enough flexibility to have the blocks showing on the specific actions i need.

tiny portal would obviousy be the best but its not available for SMF 2.0 RC1. the portal mx doesnt have articles and so i would have to use the article mod and simple portals article layout and template look rubish... just like posts. I want them to be posts but look like articles!

but anyway can anybody answer my ACTUAL question, which was is it possible to do any of these things?

1.) have them share  database tables so they can both display articles that are the same. so if you replied to a post in the forum version it would display as a comment and vice versa.

2.) change the add article link that apears in topics from my simple portals article system to post into both tables.

I actually did answer your question, albeit indeirectly.
to answer your question more directly...  not at all easily.

This mod stores the articles in a completely different format and table(s) from the post messages.

You would have to re-write the mod...

VBGamer.....

Im trying to apply manually the "addthis social bookmarking" mod to the articles in the article.template.php


"addthis social bookmarking" code

Code: [Select]
<!-- AddThis Bookmark Button BEGIN -->
        <td align="right" valign="middle" style="padding-right: 6px;">
          <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"><!-- // -->
            addthis_url    = location.href;   
            addthis_title  = document.title; 
            addthis_pub    = \'\';     
          // ]]></script>
          <script type="text/javascript" src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/addthis_widget.php?v=12" ></script>
        </td>
        <!-- AddThis Bookmark Button END -->

into article.template.php

Code: [Select]
// Show the title
echo '<tr class="titlebg">
<td align="center">', $context['article']['title'], '</td>
</tr>';

echo '<tr class="windowbg">
<td><span class="smalltext"><b>',$txt['smfarticles_submittedby2'],'</b>', '
<a href="',$scripturl, '?action=profile;u=',$context['article']['ID_MEMBER'],'">', $context['article']['realName'], '</a>
<b>',$txt['smfarticles_date2'],'</b> ',

timeformat($context['article']['date']), '

<b>',$txt['smfarticles_views2'],'</b> ',

$context['article']['views'], '

</span>
</td>
</tr>';


// Show Summary
if (!empty( $context['article']['description']))
echo '<tr class="windowbg">
<td><b>',$txt['smfarticles_summary2'],'</b>',
$context['article']['description'], '</td>
</tr>';

// Show article
echo '<tr class="windowbg">
<td><hr />
',parse_bbc($context['article_page']['pagetext']),'
</td>
</tr>';

My problem is,no matter where i add the social bookmark code,it shows crooked or out of place.

Any ideas?

article view.    I guess where users and guests read the actual article.   It shows the posters name,views,etc.   I figured the bookmarks could fit right in after it.

Like this:

Submitted By:  MoAv Date:  November 16, 2008, 02:12:04 PM Views:  95 {bookmarks here}

Here one of my articles...

http://www.chevyavalancheclub.com/index.php?action=articles;sa=view;article=34

Notice where the bookmarks ended up to?   Right in the center.

Tell you what would be a great addition to SMF Articles, (for me anyway) and that would be the ability to add attachements to the articles. The mod seems to use just the standard posting system for SMF but without the "Additional Options" bit at the bottom. On our site we are trying to use SMF Articles to create "How To" guides, location information and techniques for photographers so being able to add images as attachments would be a godsend. We already have the "Inline Attachments" mod in the forum which allows us to put images in particular places in forum posts and the "inline" dropdown actually appears on the screen when writing aticles but the attachment browse field at the bottom doesn't.

Is there anyway the attachment bit could be added.

I wanted the same thing as some articles were better presented with .pdf or .xls file supplements as attachments. Rather than wait for a mod I just ftp the doc to my host then link to it from within the article...

eg.
Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.forumname.com/.../filename.pdf]Click here for example x[/url]

vbg,

Re permissions on SMF Articles, is there an easy way to allow certain membergroups to view a list of articles within a category but not see the article itself? Happy to manually edit code if you can suggest something?

I have a load of technical articles that only paid up members can view but want non-members to see the depth of the resource by alowing them to view the headings

Thanks

Modify a group then find the SMF Articles permissions.

Post by: robinrobin on April 06, 2009, 01:14:06 PM
1.0.1.7
2.0 RC1

Spell-checking articles while editing them actually removes all text from the text-field when the spell-checking tab/window closes and returns to the edit tab/window!

Solution: Copy the code for the spell-checking feature from the Post.template.php file in your theme(s) folder(s) and replace the code in the Articles2.template.php file with it.

A preview function is needed.

The text-field when editing articles could be wider.

Solution: Search for "// Showing BBC?" in Articles2.template.php and add a width to the table tag just above it.

Ok...

I just finished importing a boatload of articles form my old Joomla/Mambo installation into the SMF articles tables.

I now have two problems.
1- none of the categories have a count... they all still say "0" as the number of articles.
2- the SUB categories do not properly fill the breadcrumbs...   If I click on Cat1 the breadcrumbs say: forum > articles > Cat1, but if I then go to SubCatA, the breadcrumbs say: forum > articles > subcatA
there is no way to get back to the category... only to the articles root or the subcat.

side note- mambo allows HTML... If I do not EDIT the articles, then everything is fine... but once I edit an article, it displays all of the html. :(

Question: What are the "roworder" and "sectiontitles" column for in the smf_articles_page database tables?

Currently they are not used yet. The plan was for a way to store long articles or to allow articles to be split into multiple pages.

nope...    the problem appears to be that the system does not recognize the imported articles....

UNTIL I add or delete an article in that specific category, at which point, it recounts and fills in the correct number.
There should be a "force recount" option in the admin...

Something underneath "show posts" etc in that side bar like:

Show My Articles (links to all the articles user has posted - the /index.php?action=articles;sa=myarticles;u=1 page)

and then into posts as well- in the display.template- above the avatar picture-- a "My Articles" link??

* gurgle-snarf *

Maybe it's too early in the morning for me, but I think I'm having an issue with the articles mod playing well with certain skins.  (Or, to be more snippy, only the skins *I* want to use...)  At least, I suspect that's the issue.  I have it installed on two different forums.  They're both SMF 1.1.8, they both have other mods installed, but neither of them displays anything that allows a person to actually access or submit an article.

One site has SMF Articles 1.0.1.7 and is using "Ancient and Rusted" by m3talc0re.  The other site (not even 24 hours old) has the latest 1.0.2 version of SMF Articles and is using NaturaLesa Theme By FriedeKind.

Unfortunately, after installing it, there are NO options ANYWHERE to access articles!  From any profile, there is no tab, no options in the profile page, nothing anywhere.  In the admin panel, there are configuration options, but that's it.


You don't happen to have a "Make everything work perfectly" checkmark I could activate, do you?

All language files load in cache memory so when you change them you have to clear the cahce so that the new language file is forced to load.

Go to ADMIN>MAINTENANCE>Forum Maintenance>Routine and last option is Empty the File Cache... click Run Task Now

When you go back to your forum home page click refresh on your browser and the tab will change

Try this

Open Sources/Subs.php

Find:

Code: [Select]
// [Articles] button
'articles' => array(
'title' => $txt['smfarticles_menu'],
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=articles',
'show' => $context['allow_view_smfarticles'],
'icon' => '',
'sub_buttons' => array(
),
),

(or similar as I may have amended this slightly!)

Replace it with something similar to this...

Code: [Select]
// [Articles1] button
'articles1' => array(
'title' => "Photography Articles",
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=articles;cat=x ',
'show' => $context['allow_view_smfarticles'],
'icon' => '',
'sub_buttons' => array(
),
),
// [Articles2] button
'articles2' => array(
'title' => "PhotoShop Articles",
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=articles;cat=x ',
'show' => $context['allow_view_smfarticles'],
'icon' => '',
'sub_buttons' => array(
),
),

Change the text for whatever you want and change the cat=x to the number of the articles category/ies (go to each category and the id will appear in your browser url bar)

I think that will work

Post by: laetabi on May 13, 2009, 04:10:31 PM
Try again - it needs a number for the article category in each case.

To avoid editing files back to their original state, save a copy on your server with a tild (~) on the end of the file name, upload your new amended file, check to see what's working and if there are errors just delete the uploaded file and take the tild off the original. That way you can experiment and always get back to where you were.

Go to the pages you want the tabs to link to and look at the url in the browser bar. It will say something like 'http://www.yourforum.com/forum/index.php?action=articles;cat=1'

Change the x in my code (both tabs) to the category number. You can delete the space after that and before the ' apostrophe.

This should work - does for me and I can't see anything on your site that would change this

You will need to get your .../Sources/Subs.php file back to the normal state that has articles in the menu. As you're unsure what edits have taken place best way is to go to the mod page (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1354), click on the Parse button and it shows you the following edits need to have taken place in your Subs.php file

Find:

Code: [Select]
$context['allow_calendar'] = allowedTo('calendar_view') && !empty($modSettings['cal_enabled']);

Add After:

Code: [Select]
$context['allow_view_smfarticles'] = allowedTo('view_articles');
      


Find:

Code: [Select]
'mlist' => array(
'title' => $txt['members_title'],
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=mlist',
'show' => $context['allow_memberlist'],
'sub_buttons' => array(
'mlist_view' => array(
'title' => $txt['mlist_menu_view'],
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=mlist',
'show' => true,
),
'mlist_search' => array(
'title' => $txt['mlist_search'],
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=mlist;sa=search',
'show' => true,
),
),
),

Add After:

Code: [Select]
// [Articles] button
'articles' => array(
'title' => $txt['smfarticles_menu'],
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=articles',
'show' => $context['allow_view_smfarticles'],
'icon' => '',
),


Once you get back to a steady state by checking you have all of these edits exactly as they are above in your subs.php file, you will be able to change the last edit above to the code I have given you.

Hope it works for you.

Always keep a copy of a file you are about to edit so you can go back to it...

vbgamer,

Does this mod support secondary membergroups eg. where a member belongs to more than one member group?

I have just set up an articles section for which only one member group can see. If that's their primary member group they can view but if its not (ie. its an additional group that they belong to) they cannot view...

I've checked member group permission and article permissions and all is correct.

Bug?

Let me know if that works then we'll get the category id's of photography and photoshop and set up the tabs as you want them

If that subs.php doesn't work, I would uninstall and reinstall SMF Articles as another php file is the cause and it will take too long to find. On uninstall you may get an error on a file - if so, stop the uninstall process, make a note of the error and post that file here.

Ok Matt, there's your error. The index.php file changes for Articles aren't there. I've added them manually in this version attached.

Upload this file. Check to see if articles working. If so, let me know the category id's of the articles sections you want on your tabs and what you want them called and I'll amend subs.php for you.

If articles still not working correctly, uninstall the articles mod (again if an error let me know and post the file but should uninstall ok now). Then reinstall articles completely.

We're nearly there now...

Fantastic, just uploaded it and it works fine again, what was it that changed?

Here is the URL for the photoshop -  index.php?action=articles;cat=1
Here is the URL for the Photography - index.php?action=articles;cat=2

Thanks so much Willerby

Good.

If you go to the mod page and click on the PARSE button it shows you the changes to each file. The index.php file has an articles array action edit - a simple addition of the line

Code: [Select]
'articles' => array('Articles2.php', 'ArticlesMain'),
That wasn't in your index.php file hence why articles wouldn't work. It's also why the mod wouldn't uninstall - it couldn't find that line to delete it. The error on uninstall therefore tells you where the error is likely to be.

Here's the amended subs.php which will create two tabs - "Photoshop Articles" which points to category 1 and "Photography Articles" which points to category 2.

Upload this to the Sources directory (remember to keep a ~ tild copy of the now working version first) and check it works. If you want to change the tab labels edit the file in Notepad searching for those two tab labels and replacing them with whatever text you want.

{This edit does not use language files but hard codes the "labels" into the file. If your forum uses multiple languages come back to me as we will need to edit modifications.english.php and any other language files and change the subs.php code to refer to the relevant text references.}

Thank you Willerby! I will get on and do this now!

Are you able to tell me how i ca add the ~ tilde to the original subs.php please i am still new to this.

Also i dont suppose you know if there is way to edit the articles display template so that it displays the articles under the category title for example, when you click the photoshop articles tab, it displays all the articles rather than a category link.

Thank you again!

If you are using ftp to upload files, go to the Sources directory and rename the original subs.php files as subs.php~  (tild symbol is above # key on my keyboard).

Then upload new subs.php.  If an error occurs when you check your site,  delete the new subs.php you uploaded and rename the original file back to subs.php by taking off the tild.


Re the articles display, thats what the code does I think... It will result in a list of all articles in that category. Let me know if that's not what you wanted...

vbgamer,

Does this mod support secondary membergroups eg. where a member belongs to more than one member group?

I have just set up an articles section for which only one member group can see. If that's their primary member group they can view but if its not (ie. its an additional group that they belong to) they cannot view...

I've checked member group permission and article permissions and all is correct.

Bug?

Still don't know if this is a bug. I think it is as all permissions ok. If I change the order of two member groups that a member belongs to (so that the one that was primary becomes secondary and vice versa) they can see articles one way but not the other. As that is just an order change not a change in  permissions I'd say this mod does not support secondary member groups...

If you agree, how do I fix?

I've been looking at using SMF Articles as a replacement for TinyPortal's news system, which still isn't close to readiness for SMF 2.0.

I've got a fresh install of SMF 2.0 RC1-1; along with the latest SMF Articles mod. The database is a copy of one which I'd used for TP .98 ('cause 1.0beta is flaky) -- which has been upgraded to SMF2.0RC1-1.  I've confirmed that TP articles are in the database

Whenever I try to use the SMF Article "Import TinyPortal" option, I get the following error:
Quote
Database Error
Table 'xxx_smf3.Arraytp_articles' doesn't exist
File: /home1/xxx/public_html/xxx/Sources/Articles2.php
Line: 2630
Line 2630 is
Code: [Select]
SELECT authorID ID_MEMBER, subject title, intro description, views, approved, date FROM {$tp_prefix}articles ");Looking at the code, the trouble may be at line 2582 which defines the tp_prefix variable as:
Code: [Select]
$tp_prefix = $smcFunc.'tp_';Unfortunately, I'm a php-neophyte, so I'm not sure what it should be doing. In reading this message about changes to database functions (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=224166.msg1435927#msg1435927) in SMF2, it appears that the code needs to be updated?
Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.0.2 Released with SMF 2.0 support)
Post by: SimonSays on June 01, 2009, 11:06:34 PM
Quick follow-up. After playing with the code a bit, I figured out that the variable $tp_prefix was unneeded so  I commented out line 2582 (to keep the line numbering the same), and simply changed line 2630 to
Code: [Select]
SELECT authorID ID_MEMBER, subject title, intro description, views, approved, date FROM {db_prefix}tp_articles ");and line 2635 to
Code: [Select]
FROM {db_prefix}articles AS a, {db_prefix}tp_articles AS t
Now all the TP articles are able to be imported into a single SMF Article category -- which isn't ideal, but I can eventually reassign them by hand. However another problem shows up: TP articles are in HTML; and do not seem to want to display as such in SMF Articles. Am I missing something-- such as a setting somewhere to turn on HTML in the articles?

Finally, it would be ideal for a proper import that the comments also be imported... they are stored in the table "tp_variables" (as are the actual TP categories) -- anyone able to take a stab at a way to copy these to the correct articles? (it should be similar to importing the TP articles themselves, right?)

Thanks ever so much!

Articles does not allow HTML, for security...   just like forum posts, the articles need to have the HTML removed and/or converted to BBC.

(Yes, I have the same issue with 900 articles imported from a former joomla installation, but some of the work I did by exporting the articles table in a text file and then performing global replaces before dropping the table and importing the revised table.)

I'm not clear what the security concern would be in removing HTML from the imported articles -- forum posts can be set to allow limited HTML. Does that mean that TP's implementation (Using FCKeditor) in its own article system is insecure?

It also makes this import quite a bit less useful, if the text has to then be re- (or pre)-edited. While I don't have 900, I do have about 300 articles; and I'm not looking forward to re-writing the articles in BB codes.

Unless Articles has a means to allow even a limited subset of HTML (as in forum posts), I'd be include towards looking at other options, such as using a WordPress front-end.

The article import only imports as it is. Might be possible with SMF 2.0 to convert the html to bbcode I think they do that with the WYWSIG editor.

well, HTML in the articles WILL work, so long as you don't ever open them for editing again...   (i.e. of the 900 that I imported, I only had to edit the HTML out after we re-saved the record.)

and yes...    allowing HTML *IS* insecure... that's one reason that forums use BBC in the first place.

I don't believe this is correct, on either point.

After importing, SMF articles displays the HTML code as though it were typed into a BBCode field. (i.e. the formatting is visible) Unless you used some alternate means of import-- all I'm seeing is garbled articles.

BBCode isn't necessarily helpful for security, but is easier for users to use than standard HTML entities. However, a simple HTML filter would remove any supposed XSS/javascript vulnerabilities.

Further, as in my case, the only people able to author articles are already admin-level, there should be no added security concerns over having HTML articles.

As mentioned, SMF already allows "basic HTML" in forum posts (See the Posts and Topics setting)

Why would you do it? Surely if a user has permission to see some articles but can't see the category because he doesn;t have permission for others you may as well give not give that user permission to see any articles in that category?

Hey VBgamer, I use this for SSI output, but it gets all latest articles. I just want to select those articles from a specific category ID:

WHERE a.approved = 1 ORDER BY ID_ARTICLE DESC LIMIT $context[start]," . $limit);
$context['articles_listing'] = array();
while ($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($dbresult))
          $context['articles_listing'][] = $row;
$smcFunc['db_free_result']($dbresult);


foreach($context['articles_listing'] as $row)

echo '', timeformat($row['date'], '%d-%m'), '&nbsp;<a href="' , $scripturl , '?action=articles;sa=view;article=', $row['ID_ARTICLE'], '">', $row['title'], '</a><br /><span style="font-size: 9px; font-family: Tahoma; color: #777777;">Geschreven door ', $row['real_name'], ' en is ', $row['views'], ' keer gelezen en heeft ', $row['commenttotal'], ' reactie(s).</span><br />', $row['description'], '<br /><hr />';

Hmm :) Look at this
http://www.rockayseri.net/rk/articles/?sa=view;article=25

Linktree is
"ЯocKayseri » Forum » Makaleler » Metal Müzik"
But actually linktree should be
"ЯocKayseri » Forum » Makaleler » Metal Müzik » Tolkien'in Orta Dünyası"
So "article link" meaning http://www.rockayseri.net/rk/articles/?sa=view;article=25 should be included linktree. This url should linked article title. (Tolkien'in Orta Dünyası)

Thanks vbgamer45 for the update. I have to do it manually though. What are the database changes for the attachments?

Oh, and where does it call the attachment in the view function???

There is no attachments in the view page. You have the option to upload images. Then can click/drag the image into the article.

Ok, cool. But where can I drag the uploaded image, is that in the add article template, or edit article template? Is that done with a javascript or something? I have to do it manually, that is why I ask.

When you edit the article that is where it is done. For SMF 1.1.x you just click on the image and it adds. For SMF 2.0 you need to drag it to the editor.

Hello again.  Excellent mod here too.  Here are a couple things I wonder if are possible:

1. Sort on Last Edit - it's a nice option to sort on Date since the dates don't change with updates/edits
2. A report that shows all of the article links (urls I guess) along with the member name that created them.  Preferably a "downloadable report" like a delimited text file
3. Ability to "subscribe" to a members articles, perhaps a notification sent via email when new articles or edits are done
4. Ability to bookmark a specific article within the software (of course you could always bookmark it in your browser)

I apologize if any of this has been previously discussed.
Thanks.

I just installed SMF Articles - I think it would be the perfect module for a forum that has a lot of tutorials and such.

However, after installing it, there is no button on my links bar.  What must I do in order to get a button to show up?

Thank you in advance

If you are running 1.1.x series of SMF and you are using a theme other than the default....   just like any other mod, you will have to manually apply theme changes to your custom theme.   This includes adding the articles button to the topnav.

On the edit article page you have the option to attach images to the article.
To get the images to appear in the article after they are attached you can double click the image and it will be added to the article text where your cursor is at. For SMF 2.0 you have to drag and drop the image.

actually, if you have direct database access, you can put HTML directly in the article contents field...   as long as you do not edit the article in the future, it will work

no.... it has to be encoded and escaped characters....      if you try to enter javascript or html by just pasting you will mess up the database table.

It sounds like the answer to your question, in this case is... no.

I'd suggest checking out the ad management mod.

This is a great mod. I was wondering where I would look to rename the references to  "myarticles" shown in this pic:

(http://img364.imageshack.us/img364/8035/6461cc864a9ec9ebc803ed5.jpg) (http://img364.imageshack.us/i/6461cc864a9ec9ebc803ed5.jpg/)

I would either like to rename that tab or at the least add a space so it shows at "my articles". Of course this isn't vital, I'm just curious if its possible.

and also, how can I fix this in the admin section:

$txt['smfarticles_myarticles'] = 'MyArticles';

It seems the "Total Articles" column only sums up 2 levels down to the first sub-category.  Is there a fix for this so it adds all sub-categories? 

I had a main category (ie. Racing Games) and then a sub-category (FUEL), and then two more sub-categories under FUEL.  Although there were articles in the last two sub-cats, the Racing Games "Total Articles" on the main Articles page still showed zero.  Once I moved the articles from the lowest sub-cats so they all resided in FUEL, then the main articles page showed the summation of the articles next to the main category (Racing Games).

I hope that makes sense.

Thanks.

Hey it's me again...

Is there anyway to create a link to "My Articles" that other members or guests can see the results?  If I copy the code by right clicking the My Articles link I'll get the link that ends in myarticles;u=1.  But if another member clicks it they get their articles (even though they are not user 1)  If a guest clicks it it says login or register (because of course they have no articles).

It's being requested of me to offer this functionality, so someone can post a link to "their articles".

Thanks.

Couple of issues with images...

Firstly, image attachment does not seem to work correctly? I have a browse button and when I post a new article with an image specified in the field the article does not display it. When I go back to EDIT the article it is there on the edit screen but doesn't show on article display? Thought it might be theme related but no theme templates used...

Secondly, I use this 'Simple Image Upload' (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1669) mod on my forum. The link to it appears to my users when creating articles as its part of the WYSIWYG editing dialogue from the general settings. Unfortunately, it posts the link to images created by this mod in the Summary field and not the main Article field. I've tried to see why this is happeneing but can't work out how that mod functions in relation to SMF Articles...

Any help (even if its hard coding to turn off the 'Add Image to Post' link for aerticles) appreciated...

1. You should be able to click on the image itself inside the edit page to insert the bbc code into the article text. For SMF 2.0 you need to drag the image to the editor.


2. Could be possible to add that bbc code to disallow list will need to look into that.

SMF 2.0 RC1.2
SMF Articles 1.1.1

Images added to articles (via the Browse function when writing them) doesn't appear anywhere. They are supposed to appear in the article-list, just like the images for categories are shown on the main Articles page, are they not?

The description text of categories turns completely blank in the text field when i click to edit it.

I sure hope the permissions system at least works as it should...

I think it is not implemented, but this is a suggestion....

In my web, SMF Articles is used for stories, poetry, and sagas....

It would be nice to have "chapters" implemented, just for those large and long srticles/sagas....

You're stepping beyond "Articles" at that point and into the realm of the eFiction fucntionality...

I think, if you want chapters, etc, you should request a separate mod for writing rather than articles. :)

but, I think you missed my point.

eFiction is a whole story based system.
SMF Articles is an articles system (similar to articles in a CMS).

You are trying to make SMF articles into something completely different.  Instead of using something and trying to turn it into something else, you should request that someone write a system to do  it the right way straight out.

What you are asking is like someone coming to me and saying "Well, I know that SMF is a forum, but I really want to use it like a photo gallery....

Post by: mpglivecarlo on October 26, 2009, 05:27:19 PM
just wondering two things, and as i have read maybe its not only me :P

1. The image uploader works perfect for my smf 2.0 installation, but since the image name and thumb are stored in database, can the "main" image be set to show in the template on top and centered? how could this be done? i know dont how difficult this would be.

2. If the first is possible, there could be a "select" primary article image to be the one that displays on top, and then have the multiple image attachment from smf to include more images (if needed) and then added using bbcode as needed.

EDIT:
3. the html bbcode seems not supported by articles.

Thx for the article mod, im planing to use it as not only articles, but for guides as well and multiple images are very case sensitive. thx again for your help.

Post by: dracomiconia on October 27, 2009, 01:42:28 AM
Well, I'm really thinking not in a thing just like eFiction.... but yes a multi-page article system, as it could be this....

http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/motherboards/1959_1.html

But I know that this is a major change in tables, code, etc.... that's because I told about it as a suggestion, not asking for it. Mod creator is the only one that can see if it fits in the mod.

Thanks anyway.

I have a question, vbgamer, but first, let me just say that the mod installed beautifully on my 1.1.10 forum and, even more importantly, doesn't generate one single error.  (I can't tell you how glad I am of that.)

I hope I'm not guilty of not searching adequately, but I'm not seeing this:  my posters are asking me how to tell if there are new articles (since you can't tell simply by looking up at the button on the nav bar).  This is where I realize that I don't fully understand how to implement the mod.  Must one designate specific boards (or create them) in order for posters to be aware of new articles?  If I were to create specific boards as "article boards" wouldn't they just become part of the main page's category listings (just regular posting boards) and the posters wouldn't even need to access the articles button?

As you can see, I'm quite at a loss as how to set up the Articles mod to its best advantage or how to achieve "new" articles to be made apparent.   :)

Note:  I use this tip on my forum and it works beautifully.  It would be great if it could be modified for the Articles button; that would pretty much solve the problem.  Would you mind taking a look at it?

hello guys! Do you know (if this has been solved before) or if it's easy to make a tinyportal block with the last articles from all the categories? I checked the other day the code that they use on their recent posts' block. It's like this.
Code: [Select]
global $scripturl;

echo '
                        <table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="4" class="bordercolor">
                               <tr><td colspan="3" class="titlebg">Recent topics</td></tr> ';
       $what=ssi_recentTopics('8', NULL, 'array');


        foreach ($what as $topic)
        {
                echo '
                                <tr>
                                        <td class="windowbg" valign="middle">
                                                ', $topic['link'];

                // Is this topic new? (assuming they are logged in!)
                if (!$topic['new'] && $context['user']['is_logged'])
                        echo '
                                                <a href="', $scripturl, '?topic=', $topic['topic'], '.from', $topic['new_from'], '#new"><img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/', $context['user']['language'], '/new.gif" alt="', $txt[302], '" border="0" /></a>';

                echo '
                                        </td>
                                        <td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" width="20%">
                                                ', $topic['poster']['link'], '
                                        </td>
                                        <td class="windowbg2" valign="middle" width="35%">';
                if ($settings['images_url'] != $settings['theme_url'] . '/images' || file_exists($settings['theme_dir'] . '/images/icons/last_post.gif'))
                        echo '
                                        <a href="', $topic['href'], '"><img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/icons/last_post.gif" alt="', $txt[111], '" title="', $txt[111], '" border="0" style="float: right;" /></a>';
                echo '
                                                <span class="smalltext">
                                                        ', $topic['time'], '
                                                </span>
                                        </td>
                                </tr>';
        }

        echo '
                        </table>';

Would anybody help me to change the code to make articles appear. I suppose there's something to do with SSI.
Thanks in advance for your time.  :)

My attachments (images) do not display with the articles. When creating or editing an article, the attachment upload box seems to work for browsing and selecting files. The files even upload.

No, in RC2 you don't emulate anything, you use the natural version check, though I can see how it could be 'emulating' RC2.

As for that, you'll have to take that up with the mod's author, I don't know nearly enough about it, sorry.

As for that, you'll have to take that up with the mod's author, I don't know nearly enough about it, sorry.

No no. I mean when I emulated I entered RC2 instead of the RC1.2 and it worked. The question mark in my sentence was because I'm confused as to how it worked.

Post by: Arantor on November 24, 2009, 07:39:46 PM
Yes, because you're no longer emulating a different version but using the master version identity of the forum software. The mod has in its code a list of versions it supports, one of which that it has listed is 2.0 RC2 explicitly, which is why it worked.

I have it installed by emulating RC2?. Odd. Anyway, the article permission options are all messed up.

Ideas?
They should still work just the style settings have been fixed yet for curve

I have no options in my Articles Permission section. I can't set any permissions.

That is category level permissions. You need to set normal permissions which are found under

Admin -> Permissions -> Modify each group and give them the articles permissions needed.

You have to drag and drop the images into the article in order for them to appear.

I tried this...

The function is not allowed from the upload (browse) window.

After the upload, when I drag and drop from the article edit window, it places the following text in my article.

javascript:void(0);

But, still no picture.
Anyone else having this problem with attachments not showing?

I get this as well - no pictures display, however when you edit an article you can see  athumbnail of the picture.

That does not work.       Why is the Upload image prompt there, if it doesn't work?


It uploads fine,  shows it under edit,  but not visible once you save the article.       I tried dragging dropping the picture from my desktop to the open article edit window and it doesn't work.


Any ideas?

You have to drag it from the edit screen after the picture is uploaded. This was added since someone paid for this feature to work this way.

I complained about this not working before but never got a satisfactory response. That drag and drop fix doesn't work either. (see above posts) Besides, how would I ever get all of my members to understand that special method.

Since most of our articles are "how to" type, I figured they were worthless without images, so I uninstalled the mod. Now we post articles through other methods.

What browser do you use? Mine was Firefox 3.0.15.

I have used in 1.1.x and SMF 2.0.
1.1.x you have to click the image and it is added to the editor box.
2.0 the only way I could get it to work was to drag and drop and that was using firefox and wywsig editor for SMF 2.0


I might just change to display the images just on the articles page on an area to the side or bottom instead.

When you are posting,  does it display the bold, etc, right away,  or just add BBC codes?  Mine just shows BBC codes.  And my WYSIWYG is enabled.

WYSIWYG by definition is that you're supposed to see text in bold and so on.

So it's enabled in the master configuration and turned on in your profile?
Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.1.2 Released with SMF 2.0 RC2 support!)
Post by: GohighVoltage on December 16, 2009, 05:18:13 PM
Ok, it was turned off in my profile.   Let me try your mod again.

ALso,  how can I make it auto enabled for all users,  rather then making them have to adjust their profiles?  Or is this not wise to do?

Post by: GohighVoltage on December 16, 2009, 06:23:00 PM
Ok,   your mod does work with firefox,  and WYSIWYG enabled.       Only thing after I dragged and dropped it,  you have to erase the formatting on picture itself.    Then everything works great.

Hi VBG45!

I've just installed the latest release (1.2) in my new forum with SMF 2 RC2 & SimplePortal 2.3.1 and all seem works great...

The only problem is the visualization of "Category Permission List" that don't show all permissions.

I'd like to have an italian version!

Are you interested if I offer my help for a translation?  :)

Bye!

2.| User's other than the admin cannot view articles, even if I give permissions to every membergroup to the category.

3.| Also, I getting these errors in my log:

Code: [Select]
8: Undefined index: titleFile: /home/xxxxxx/xxxxxx.com/cache/lang_Articles_english_default.php (generic_menu_dropdown_above sub template - eval?)

We use it that way, though, on our forums:  blogs.  The blog mod found on this site was literally taking over the forums with errors and, after not being able to resolve it, I uninstalled it and installed Articles.  It works beautifully and generates no errors, although I agree: technically, articles aren't blogs.

you can't dump images into forum posts either....    the articles uses the same IMG BBC code that the forum uses.

Upload your pics to some location
add your article and include the URL of the image in IMG tags.

Not hard for the likes of us. It's just that some of my members are used to a tiny mce style interface.

One question though, is there a way to make the image word wrap the text around it rather than sit in line with the text? Perhaps a default setting?

my host is somehow not allowing package manager to auto do anything. whenever i install a mod,

the whole included files goes empty, that means i have to add the whole codes manually to make sure everything goes well.
so if you can give me the edits, to add on the modified file, i will be ok. thanks

When you uninstall your mod,  it does not uninstall from Modifications.english.php

So, if you reinstall an upgrade, etc,  or even decide to reinstall,  it adds another entry in Modifications.english.php,   so then you have duplicate content.

It should but depends if you have other mods that write to that file in the end as well. This is a known issue with SMF if multiple mods write to the same file it will not uninstall correctly but is safe to ignore.

I removed all the article text in modifications.english.php i removed all the text in articles.english.php and articles.english-utf8.php and somehow text is showing up still.

In SMF 2.0 go under Forum Maintenance and clear the cache it will then reload the cache and the text should be changed.

Yes, I was looking to be able to take the articles I've posted to my SMF articles site and turn them into an RSS feed.

I'm reasonably good at wonking around inside the code, but I was hoping someone had already done this and I just needed to be pointed to the solution.  I do have the RSS feed for boards MOD (which I think you also wrote).

Small inaccuracy -> file Articles2.template.php
Code: [Select]
<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=findmember;input=pic_postername;quote=1;sesc=', $context['session_id'], '" onclick="return reqWin(this,href, 350, 400);"><img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/icons/assist.gif" alt="', $txt['find_members'], '" /></a>
  <a href="', $scripturl, '?action=findmember;input=pic_postername;quote=1;sesc=', $context['session_id'], '" onclick="return reqWin(this,href, 350, 400);">', $txt['find_members'], '</a>

It would be better to use a comma instead of point? "reqWin(this,href, 350, 400)" => "reqWin(this.href, 350, 400)"

SMF Blog right now is based on smf boards not ideal if you want to have many many categories. SMF Articles little better updated at this time.

Updating mods to help the community I took over and bought couple for around $2500 in jan as well to make sure they stay updated.

So basically SMF Blog is no use to the user at all if they were to create their own blogs which will turn into many categories...but only if you can revamp into something different like the blog at vBullentin, our own blogs in our profile.

hmmm....   I have an issue with the permissions

I have a number of users marked as "Project Editors".
They have been granted permission, in the permissions profile, to administrate articles, approve articles, comments, etc.
However, the administration seems to be hidden in the smf admin-only section, which means that the users (who do not have normal board-admin access) are told they can not get to the article approval section.

I know I am missing something simple...  but it's anoying.

Any idea vbgamer?

I've installed the mod, created a category (with viewing/posting permissions for registered members) and a test article, but unless I log in with my admin account instead of my test account as a normal user, I get an "An Error Has Occurred! You can not view the articles page." error when I try to access the article page or the article itself. I even tried giving registered members all permissions, but I still can't view the page. Any ideas?

I'm using it in SMF 1.1.111.

I'm trying to insert a link tree on the first page of this mod (the categories page), but for some reason it doesn't look like I expect it to. I'm using the default div tag for this, in the same way as in the other template files:

Code: [Select]
<div style="padding: 3px;">', theme_linktree(), '</div>
It's inserted into the template_articlesmain function, after the global.
 
On the category page, the link tree only shows the forum name and not the actual categories page name. If I click one of my two categories though, it looks like it should, showing Forum -> Categories page -> Category.

Got any ideas why this is happening?

Edit: Color me surpised! I managed to fix it myself, by editing Article.php. I moved this:

Code: [Select]
// Setup the Link Tree

$context['linktree'][] = array(

'url' => $scripturl . '?action=articles',

'name' => $txt['smfarticles_title']

);

GetParentLink($cat);

And inserted it after:

      
Code: [Select]
// Set page title

$context['page_title'] = $txt['smfarticles_title'];

Edit 2: Well, apparently that didn't solve the issue after all.  :( Now I got the categories page in the link tree, but not the categories.

-View article

or just preview one article in the list.

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.

Hi there,

Once again a great mod VBGamer :D

I have one small problem...... when I upload an image it only shows as a thumbnail within my article as opposed to full size. There is no thumbnail showing beside the Article name.

Any ideas?

Post by: Sic0 on March 12, 2010, 04:24:50 AM
Thanks for the response.

I don't get a link to the larger image showing. The larger image has been uploaded into the folder on my server.

It is not a major deal as my users will have no problem linking to an external site for images and adding them to their articles.

I may remove the upload facility altogether.

Is there still no way that users can be informed that a new article has been submitted yet?

I am using SMF 1.1.11

Not at this time.

Is there still no way that users can be informed that a new article has been submitted yet?
Not yet like an unread system? Or like a pm on new article?

Hi,

Just trying this mod out on 2.0RC3 and I have created one category, made 3 articles and lal is great.

I created a sub-category (a child if you like) but I wish to move it (make it not a child) or delete it but there is not option for this.

Any suggestions appreciated, obviously I don't want to delete the parent.

Cheers

G

Go inside the parent category. The subcategories should be listed above and you can find the edit/delete links there.

@vbgamer45

Thanks very much for the response...all sorted!

I'm so sure that wasn't there before when I looked.

It's a great mod by the way, works really well in conjunction with the redirect boards on 2.0RC3.

Cheers

Hi,

I'm having problems with SMF Articles 1.3 for SMF 2.0 RC3

The "Article" link takes me to the path "public_html/smf/article". The index.php file there has got just one line "Access Denied", which is what I see when I try to use the "Article" link in the menu.

http://www.videoedicion.org/foro/articles/

Besides, I cannot find where should I create new categories and articles. The only options I see are  "Settings - Approve Articles (0) - Approve Comments (0) - Category Permission List - Import

Any help?

Thanks in advance.

Regards

The article link should point to
http://www.videoedicion.org/foro/index.php?action=articles

And on that page there should be a place to add categories.

And on that page there should be a place to add categories.

Thanks so much for replying.

The link you provide just redirectos to http://www.videoedicion.org/foro/articles/ and shows the "Access Denied" message.

Besides, I have just installed the Download System and I have the same issue. The link http://www.videoedicion.org/foro/download/ just takes me nowhere.

Please, have a look at the menus of both modules and tell me if they look like the should.

Thanks a lot for taking the trouble.

vB,...

I have a question regarding the articles database with user ID's.

I created a membergroup called "editor" and appointed a member i created in which the member ID is #295.   Me as admin member #1, wrote most articles.   I dont want these articles to show under my name anymore.  I want to swap user ID's in the database to these articles.


While looking at the articles database, i looked at "browse" and found it.  Can i go ahead edit the user ID there from #1 to #295?  Is there somewhere else i need to also go?

Is there a way to list the articles by Alphabetical vs date? I didn't see a setting anywhere and a project I'm working would require the default listing to alphabetical listing opposed to the default of by date posted.

I'm guessing you could hard code it, but well I'm not that bright to know what or where to change.

ok, foolish question time.

due to restoration issue I need to reinstall. I manually deleted all sql tables (6 iirc) articles_ cleared cache and deleted package off server. when I reinstall old categories are still listed when I try to move a post to article.
did I miss something when uninstalling?

thanks.

edit: when I go directly to articles and add from there its correct, its just when trying to add a post to article that the old category is shown and any new ones are not shown.

even odder is that after removing it the add to article button shows up under all themes and points to the non-existent category.
going to try looking at all templates and manually removing any reference to article and see what happens.

for some reason I had thought this one added the add as article buttons under topics, sorry for the confusion.

403 error sounds like either a webserver permissions issue or an issue with mod_security that has to be disabled by the host.

Actually dont worry, I wont be using the mod, wasnt a fan of it when I used it last time and I dont want to go faffing about in some settings that could cause more issues than they solve.

Thanks anyway!

Not sure if this has been asked already, but it would be cool to be able to add a thumbnail to the articles in the article list.

good morning,
I'm having problems with SMF Articles 1.3.2.a -SMF 2.0 RC3 - Simple portal: www.irwin.it is free to check for the moment.

http://www.irwin.it/index.php?action=articles;sa=view;article=1

But not in the home page "Articles blocks":

Thanks in advance

Is this a "bug"?

Which portal? SimplePortal, TinyPortal, Ezportal, PortaMX, Dream Portal?

You would have to code one or analyze the block code from ezPortal don't have one that is standalone yet.

No. I think there is only one upload field shown at a time.
But if you edit you can add more files.

It would be nice.

Easy to do though just a couple queries to smf_articles database tables and you can get the articles.

I think you just need to add it to the articles.template.php and that should be it under view article
Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.3.2 Released with SMF 2.0 RC3 support!)
Post by: Kindred on August 18, 2010, 06:29:36 PM
hmmm.... problem.

It appears that the notice "your article must be approved before it is visible" uses the fatal_error command/template.

This is very confusing to the user because the box has the heading "An Error Has Occurred"
IMO the display should not be using the error message template for this screen.... I like the "box display" but I do nto see an easy way to remove the "error" message in the heading.
Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.3.2 Released with SMF 2.0 RC3 support!)
Post by: vbgamer45 on August 18, 2010, 06:36:01 PM
Yeah what I do some of my mods is use a modified version of that box for the error display since then I can set the box title/page title.

you would have to change the CODE in the source and template files that looks for contents under that path.  Probably have to re-configure the url code as well

This is a really great mod. I plan to try something with it. I have a referral system on and i already promised to compensate anyone that refers 25 people to submit articles for free with their ads and backlinks inside but the article system in simpleportal is not working as i want. Now i want to use this article mod, is there a way to add an adsense code into it?
Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.3.2 Released with SMF 2.0 RC3 support!)
Post by: vbgamer45 on November 23, 2010, 08:44:44 AM
You can add adsense by editing the article.template.php and just put the code where you want it show up.

HI, great mod and im trying it.

Installed ok, but can not see any "Article" tab (im not sure what you call it) at the top among "Home", Help, Search, Logout, etc. Im using Headline as my theme.
I tried to see if the "article" tab will show on other theme and it showed on SMF Default Theme -core.

Is there any coding I need in order for it to show? Please help me on this.

Thanks

Edit:  I figured it out how to put the Article button on top but the problem is the link give me an ERROR 500. the link is http://.........../forum/articles as what in article setting says its URL.

It also says:
Common reasons for this error are:

Incorrect file/directory permissions: Above 755. In order files to be processed by the webserver, their permissions have to be equal or below 755. You can update file permissions with a FTP client or through cPanel's File Manager.
Incorrect Apache directives inside .htaccess file. Make sure you have not specified unsupported directives inside the local .htaccess file. Such include PHP settings and Apache module settings.

Now I dont know what to do? Help me please. thanks

Got it thanks.

But I didnt put the whole URL only the "?action=articles". If I put the whole it just browse on the forum index.

Hi...

When I uninstall articles the Title still remains in the forum menu bar and when I install with the danish translation everything is translation correct but the menu title is still Articles.

How can I correct this...

Best regards

Thank you Vbgamer45 so far for your responses. They've worked for me.
I use simpleportal on my forum as well as this article mod and download system. I'd like to create a block on the forum index where the latest articles will be displayed. Can i get a code for this? Creating the block is not the problem but how to make the recent articles show in the block. Thanks
Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.3.2 Released with SMF 2.0 RC3 support!)
Post by: BLueSS on December 10, 2010, 01:34:31 PM
My forum's breadcrumbs for articles are not working correctly. The breadcrumbs for a category will also pull the Forum category that matches the same number.

Normally the breadcrumbs for the forums are
[Site Index -> Forum -> Forum Category -> Topic]

The breadcrumbs when viewing an article are
[Site Index -> index.php?cat=# (Forum category for number #) -> Articles Home -> Article category -> Article subcategory (With number #) -> Article
This format only appears when I'm in a sub-category. If i'm in a normal category, replace index.php?cat=# with a link to the forum via index.php.


So if I'm in Article category #10, the forum category that corresponds to #10 will also appear in the breadcrumbs.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

PS: A preview function would be great to have added to this mod. :)

Good day, i'd like to add adsense to the top of every article but below the summary. That is the ads will be between the summary and the main article. I don't know much about coding. Please, where do i edit in the article template? Thank you

awsome mod!

also, let me suggest an improvement for the next release(s):
add the option to automatically create a post in a selected thread if a new article is approved (just like you did for the 'download system' mod). i suppose you'll have most of the coding done for this. ..and maybe, add the summary of the article to the body of the generated post.

It cant find the background images for these buttons.
It searches themes/pdx-dx/images/   <<< It doesnt look for the image but it looks for the directory only.

When i view it in default theme it looks and finds themes/default/images/maintab_back.gif

vb,  you know what i noticed?

I have a facebook fan page, when i try to attach a link to an article in my forum, facebook doesnt recognize the link.  It attaches the main domain to my forum instead.

Have this been discussed?

Can a notify feature be easily implemented in the articles? Notify of comments in articles. I think it'd be a great new feature if it can be easily done.

@vbgamer45

Had to fix the ShowArticlesBar on this mod in Sources/Articles2.php - (similar issue as with ezportal)

Current Code

Code: [Select]
<table class="table_list">
         <tbody class="header">

<tr  class="catbg">
<td align="center" colspan="4" class="catbg"><span class="left"></span>', $title, '
</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

Needed changing to

Code: [Select]
<table class="table_list">
         <tbody class="header">

<tr  class="catbg">
<td align="center" colspan="4">
<div class="cat_bar">
<h3 class="catbg">', $title, '</h3>
</div>
</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

I've attached the edited file to make life easy

Just want to say this is a great mod and to keep up the good work!

If I may make a couple of suggestions for future updates?

1. It would be great if you would possibly include a "preview" button on the article submission page. A lot of my users have expressed a desire to preview their article before submitting it. However, this is not a major problem as they can use the normal post screen to preview it first. Simply a minor inconvenience.

2. Would it be possible to have some kind of "recent articles" list on the articles screen just below where the categories are listed, and with the option to also display on the home page next to/below the "recent posts" list? Just so everyone can see there's been some new additions.

Aside from those two minor suggestions, this is an excellent mod and my users are having a fun time writing articles for it.

Hello, let me start by saying thanks for this great mod, it's one of my favorites!

I have a question though, in some of my articles I'd like to add some HTML, specifically tables so I can make some of the layout a bit more interesting and less cluttered, however for some reason HTML doesn't seem to work in posts. Is there any way to enable it?

(Btw. HTML does seem to work in regular posts on my forum).

HTML was disabled for security reasons. Youcan remove the calls to htmlspecialcharacters which would allow the content to go though but not recommended.

Well only a handful of selected people I trust can submit articles right now so I suppose that would be safe enough right?

Which file would I need to edit in order to allow the HTML content?

I just don't know of any other way to format these articles properly without it.

I did that...   but I had to write a custom SQL script to do the import, and then have all my editorial staff manually correct anything else.
Unfortunately, before you ask, I no longer have the script that I used - I wrote it on the fly and never saved 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:

Code: [Select]
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

I've been administering the articles for a while.  Now I'd like to hand this off to another user. I added a new membergroup called "articles", added my user to the membergroup, and added the full permission set in the articles configuration for that membergroup.  However, when the user logs in, he sees nothing different than any guest sees - none of the admin functions are there.  Seems straightforward enough, leading me to believe I've missed something obvious.

I have three questions:

(2) I am using the Advanded Reputation mod... when making comments to an article it shows the +Karma / -Karma of the stock system not the advanced rep options... and if you use +KARMA/-KARMA a database error pops up.  Any way to completely REMOVE the "KARMA" options from the comments.

(3) Any way to incorporate a re-order option (like with categories) but for articles themselves?

Thanks!

Code: [Select]
// Setup the Link Tree
$context['linktree'][] = array(

To remove the link tree I found this code instead in Sources/articles.php

Code: [Select]
// Link Tree

$context['linktree'][] = array(
'url' => $scripturl . '?action=articles',
'name' => $txt['smfarticles_title']
);

GetParentLink($context['article']['ID_CAT']);



$dbresult = $smcFunc['db_query']('', "
SELECT
pagetext
FROM {db_prefix}articles_page
WHERE ID_ARTICLE = $article LIMIT 1");
$row2 = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($dbresult);
$context['article_page'] = $row2;
$smcFunc['db_free_result']($dbresult);

and commented out this part.

Code: [Select]
/*
$context['linktree'][] = array(
'url' => $scripturl . '?action=articles',
'name' => $txt['smfarticles_title']
);

GetParentLink($context['article']['ID_CAT']);

*/

I tried first playing around with the code you posted, but I could not seem to get the link tree removed by removing any of that code.
Should what I did above effect anything other then removing the article link tree?

Thanks for the help,

Edited to add:

Quote

That worked perfect for me.

I would like to uninstall this mod from my site.  When I do, I get no errors.  However, the Articles Configuration link in the admin remains behind and all articles errors start giving fatal errors (EG:  http://www.thetennisbulletin.com/forums/articles/sa=view;article=13)

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/tbassett/webapps/thetennisbulletin/forums/Sources/Articles2.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/tbassett/webapps/thetennisbulletin/forums/index.php on line 371

Can anyone suggest anything to resolve this?

I have had to re-install this mod to resolve all these fatal errors which is why my example link above now works.  I have attached a screenshot of the error.

Hi, I'd like to allow users to have permission to post and edit articles based on post-count-based membergroups, not regular membergroups. Is there a way to do that? The only groups showing up in my permissions settings for this plugin are the regular membergroups.

Post by: ollybaba on October 10, 2012, 03:10:04 AM
So then, there's no way to automatically allow anyone to add or edit articles? An administrator has to add them to a membergroup manually before they can have that ability?
Title: Re: SMF Articles (2.0 Released with SMF 2.0 support!)
Post by: vbgamer45 on October 10, 2012, 07:48:08 AM
You would use the regular members permissions in the membergroup settings to setup the permissions for adding/editing articles etc.

What error are you getting?

I am not using the share button in the articles system but instead the like code.

You are right (of course ;) ) it is the "Like" button.

Issue is, when I 'Like' an article it does not 'Like' the article ( in our case: digiscrap.nl/articles/overig-digitaal-scrappen/digiscrap-dutch-choice/65 ) but it Likes the website only (digiscrap.nl) on Facebook, not the article. Tweet on Twitter works OK!

Maybe you can change the Like button into the Share button? ....

I found 2 things not working correct.
(1) old issue;
Issue is, when I 'Like' an article it does not 'Like' the article ( in our case: digiscrap.nl/articles/overig-digitaal-scrappen/digiscrap-dutch-choice/65 ) but it Likes the website only (digiscrap.nl) on Facebook, not the article. Tweet on Twitter works OK!

Can this been fixed?


And the other issue;

I add an category description and save it. When I edit the category again the description disappears. This issue was also present in the previous version of SMF Articles. Sorry, didn't told you that.

I hope you can fix this too.

Thanks, Vincent

Thanks for the update and fixing. The like button is still not working correct. It "likes" the URL of the website instead of the article URL.
btw... I'm using pretty url's. I don't know if that is important in this case.

It appears I'm running an outdated version of the mod and I'd like to upgrade.

Can I just install the new version on top of the old one or will I need to uninstall the old version first? Also will I lose any of my articles in the process?

I have a problem that I'm trying to figure out with this mod (please excuse the 'repeat' if this has already been brought up). I can't seem to get the ratings to show for everyone. It will be there for me (admin) but won't show for regular members to be able to rate the article? I have the enable ratings box checked off and permission set for everyone so not sure what is going on. I did upgrade to the latest version also. Any suggestions? I might just be overlooking something simple........Thanks

Thank you for your reply. I checked my permissions and group category and it all seems to be ok but I still can't get the rating boxes to show for anyone but me? As I mentioned I do have 'enable ratings' checked in the settings and have the latest version. Do you think uninstalling and then reinstalling might help?

Hi VbGamer

I run 1.1.18, and on my test forum, Articles installed beautifully, and administration was intuitive...plus it added a feature that makes great sense....so congrats

I'm beginning to learn more about the plumbing of SMF, so I would like to know exactly how this mod affects the "plain vanilla" coding of SMF.

I know little php, so a "high level understanding is what I am looking for. ie, what SMF files are modified and what files are added and where.

Also, what happens when the mod is uninstalled, does it remove the coding that was initially modified and the files originally installed?

I expect the design principles would be the same for all mods, so any kind of insight you might be able to provide me with would help me on the road

The answers are important to me before I start rolling the mod out to another live forum because I don't want to wreck it and I want to know how to reverse it should I want to

Post by: vbgamer45 on August 31, 2013, 10:48:42 AM
On the mod page itself you can see the exact files the mod edits and code it changes.

Or you can upload the file to my package parser to file the files it edits

Post by: iaccountant on August 31, 2013, 01:55:47 PM
Thanks VB because it sent me to check out my server files where I decided I should manually delete the articles folder

Now when you uninstall the mod,  does it actually reverse the changes to the files made on the install, comment them out etc?

I see (from going onto my server) that, for example, the first file ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php, was modified today when I uninstalled

Am I to assume that I can simply delete the backup version because it held the code used by Articles...and the same for the utf backup, and I guess all those shown in the parser?
Title: Re: SMF Articles (2.5.1 Released with SMF 2.0 support!)
Post by: vbgamer45 on August 31, 2013, 02:00:22 PM
It reverses the changes to the files made. But leaves copied files/folders/database tables/settings intact
Title: Re: SMF Articles (2.5.1 Released with SMF 2.0 support!)
Post by: iaccountant on August 31, 2013, 02:05:29 PM
I think I answered the "uninstall" part of my question because when I uninstalled the root index.php backup file created today, nothing broke :)

Guess that makes sense, even to a newbie

I presume to that I can go to all the files indicated by the parser and delete the backup copies, and it would "look" like a totally clean install except fro some changed dates

Thanks for the help VB....much appreciated

Hi Friends,
I don't have time to read all the 42 pages in this topic, but a search for "approval" did not turn up anything helpful.

I'm using SMF 2.0.5 with Tiny Portal 1.107, and SMF Articles 2.5.1.

When a member writes and submits an article, it goes into the approval queue.  However, I can't seem to find any way to read the article before I approve it (except by opening it up for editing).

Is that how it's supposed to work?  Or have I just not found the right buttons?

Thanks for your help  :)

3 days later.....

No one knows?  I really apologize if this has been asked a million times before.  But I searched, and didn't find anything that answers it.

I just don't understand why there's an approval feature, if the admins or mods can't read it before approving or denying it.  Is the approval feature broken?  Or I'm supposed to review it by opening for editing?  Or have I just not found the right controls?

Thanks   :)

Hi Friends,
Another question.  I want to know if it's possible, how to move articles which were submitted into the wrong category, into the correct category.  I can't seem to find a way to do that.  It seems like a vital feature for admins.

Thanks for your help!   :)

PS -- I'd be willing to make a small donation, if it could make this and my previous request possible (admin able to read articles before approving).  TA

What I'am missing is the posibility to add Permissions to Categories. And because I'm missing it I have done for me. ist is quite simple, just a Selection for the Category and a submit Button. It looks now so:
(http://www.access-o-mania.de/images/permissions.png)

In articles2.php Function ArticlesAdminPerm() I just added this after the AdminTabs:

Code: [Select]
$dbresult = $smcFunc['db_query']('', "
SELECT
ID_CAT, title, roworder, ID_PARENT
FROM {db_prefix}articles_cat ORDER BY title ASC");
$context['news_cat'] = array();
while ($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($dbresult))
$context['articles_cat'][] = $row;
$smcFunc['db_free_result']($dbresult);

CreateArticlesPrettryCategory();

And in Template catpermlist after the table:
Code: [Select]
<form method="post" action="' , $scripturl , '?action=articles;sa=addPermission">
<table border="0" width="80%" cellspacing="0" align="center" cellpadding="4" class="tborder">
<tr>
<td align="right" style="vertical-align: top">', $txt['smfarticles_category'] ,':&nbsp;<select name="cat">';
foreach ($context['articles_cat'] as $cat)
echo '<option value="', $cat['ID_CAT'], '">', $cat['title'], '</option>';
echo '</select></td>
<td align="left"><input type="submit" value="' , $txt['smfarticles_text_addperm'] , '" name="submit" /><br /><br /></td>
</tr>
</table>
</form>

That's it. It would be great if you would update you Mod in this way. Also Mod Downloads etc.

There is more code behind category level permissions then just the display links. You would also need to modify the queries to show items based on permissions.

I have it downloads pro,gallery pro etc

Post by: Hondo on March 28, 2014, 06:11:30 AM
OK I see, I have fogotton to post the rest:
in articles2 in Array Subactions you have to insert: 'addPermission' => 'AddPermission',
And insert the function maybe at the End of File:
Code: [Select]
Function AddPermission()
{
$cat = $_REQUEST['cat'];
if(isset($cat))
redirectexit('action=articles;sa=catperm;cat=' . $cat);
else
redirectexit('action=admin;area=articles;sa=adminperm');
}

Hi Friends,
First, I should say that I haven't read the entire 43 pages of this topic.  So I apologize if I've missed a similar comment.

I wanted to suggest what I think would make a nice feature for this mod.  I'll bet that a lot of admins use the Articles mod for things besides true articles.  For example, I'm using as a way for members to contribute tutorials (for Inkscape, vector graphics editor).  I would love it if I could change the tab to say Tutorials, instead of Articles.  Maybe someone would used Articles to publish recipes, for another example.  They might like the tab to say "Recipes".  Maybe someone uses it to post movie reviews, or reviews about anything -- book reviews, software reviews, etc.  They might like the tab to say "Reviews".  And etc.

When I first started my SMF forum (with Tiny Portal), there was a mod that allowed the text on any tabs to be changed.  But after an upgrade, it no longer worked.  Then I found another mod that allows you to add new tabs, which is what I'm using now.  But as many admins probably experience, I have more tabs than can fit on 1 screen.  So the tabs sort of get wrapped around, although not in a way that looks nice (you can't read the text on the wrapped tabs, and you can hardly see the wrapped tabs at all - they're sort of a shadow).   So it would be nice not to have the 2 tabs going to the same place.   And if, as part of the Articles mod, the tab text could be changed, it would be really helpful.

Just a friendly suggestion.  And certainly nothing urgent.  Thanks for listening.   :)

Edit -- Perhaps it would be more appropriate to request a mod where tabs' text can be changed, tabs can be rearranged, and tabs can be hidden.  If you all think that would be more appropriate, I would be glad to post a request for such a mod.  But I thought I would have a better chance of someone adding a feature to a mod that stays current, than someone writing a new mod.  There used to be such a mod, but I can't find it anymore.  TA

Is there a way to reorder the articles after they're submitted? I have this mod as a history section on my site that is currently arranged by year, but I want to be able to keep this order after other articles are added. The order will break if I can't control their arrangements. e.g., I don't want year 1985 showing after year 2014 if a user adds an article after it.

Hi again Friends,
If I recall, from having made a few posts in this thread (in the past year or 2) (in case this message gets moved, this is the thread:  http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=259659.840) this mod hasn't be upgraded or changed in quite a while.  Yet it appears to remain a popular mod!

In case it ever is upgraded, I just discovered something that I hope would be fixed.  And actually, partly this affects all of SMF....somehow....although I don't understand how the program works from the coding perspective.  Now that I think of it, maybe this would better be posted somewhere else, related to smileys.  I'll have to leave it to your judgement where it should go.

Actually, maybe this is a bug, or something is broken in my forum?  I'll have to leave that part up to you.

I love smileys and have 100s of them loaded into my forum -- nearly 100 in the editor, and maybe 250 more in the "(more)" pop-up.  (half of them are related to the program which the forum supports, which is Inkscape, a vector graphic editor - lotta buttons!)

Even though the smileys are loaded and edited and managed from the admin panel, they show up in mods like this SMF Articles, in PMs (can't remember if PMs are a mod or not), and in SMFPacks ShoutBox.  However, if I need to open the pop-up, to get a smiley to post in the forum, and later need to get a smiley from the popup for a PM or Shout or Article, I have to open the popup directly from wherever I am.  I cannot get the smiley, to go in a shout, from the popup I opened in the forum.  I have to open the pop-up from wherever I need to use it.  And on a busy day, keeping 3 or 4 of those pop-ups open can get confusing!

So in that sense, maybe it's more related to how SMF makes the smileys work.  I'm not sure about that part.

What I just noticed, while writing and editing an article from SMF Articles, is that if I already have the smiley pop-up open, because I already used a smiley from it in the article, and I save the article, it somehow disables the pop-up from working.  Because if I re-open the article to edit again, and need another smiley from that pop-up, I have to open a fresh new pop-up!

Does this sound like something is broken, or a bug?  Or normal and expected behavior?  Any chance of avoiding having to open the smiley popup so many different times?

Let's see....  This is SMF 2.0.9, Tiny Portal 1.107, and a long list of other mods, something like 45.  But I can list them if necessary.  Not sure if you need it, but my forum http://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php.  Although you won't be able to.....well you can't post a message, shout, Pm or article, but there does seem to be a way to access my smileys without being a member, if that would help.  I'm using with Firefox....haven't tested with IE - but I could, if it seems like this would be a browser issue?

Thanks for your help  :D

Post by: Arantor on December 06, 2014, 07:04:38 AM
That is how SMF works. When you close the editor in the first page, the internal reference from the pop up goes with it. By the time the second page is loaded, the pop up does not know where to send the smiley code you select. Not sure it is fixable either.

Post by: brynn on December 06, 2014, 08:55:01 AM
Hhmmm....well that's too bad.

As I said before, I know little to nothing about coding, in any language.  I guess telling it to connect to any open editor isn't possible?  Or maybe would take major work to accomplish?

Well, certainly not the end of the world!

Thanks for letting me know   :)

I'm looking for a mod that would be suitable to create a recipe listing site. Do you think this mod would lend itself to that?

I'm willing to do modifications to make it "fit" the function of a recipe directory but I'm wondering if you think this mod would be a good candidate for a place to start?

I started on a recipe mod a while back. Have to search it out again.

Actually, the custom form mod might not be a bad start...

I am worked on a pro edition of this mod to still not sure on the feature set though.
Title: Re: SMF Articles (2.5.1 Released with SMF 2.0 support!)
Post by: MrMike on December 11, 2014, 02:04:55 PM
Kindred, VBGamer,

Thanks for the replies. I've looked at a number of mods trying to see if they might lend themselves to a recipe directory but nothing jumps out at me.

The SMF Articles mod looks like it might work, it has categories and commenting which are two features that would be nice to have (actually, categories is a must-have, obviously).

The Custom Form Mod also looks good, but seems like it has a steep learning curve. It also seems like it's intended to post to a board and not to an individual page or entry- is that correct?

I also looked at the SA Knowledge Base (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3185) mod...in some ways it seems like it would lend itself nicely to a recipe directory but I'm not sure how easy it would be to change some of the basic layout items (like having the main page show the categories in columns, for example). But other than that it seems like it would work pretty well.

The alternative is to code one from scratch, which I could do, I'm just not wild about spending the time to do that.

Do either of you know if any of the portal mods (Simple Portal, ezPortal, etc) might have a block or plugin that would work for a recipe directory?
Title: Re: SMF Articles (2.5.1 Released with SMF 2.0 support!)
Post by: vbgamer45 on December 11, 2014, 02:54:08 PM
Well I use basiclly the same base for my mods. So SMF articles, Downloads System, SMF Link, SMF Gallery have basically the same base which just tweaks/updates made to each one.

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 (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 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
Ron

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.

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:

Code: [Select]
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

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

// facebook and OG
if ($context['current_action'] != 'admin'){
if (isset($context['article']['title']))
echo '

elseif(empty($context['current_topic']))
echo '

else
echo '
<meta property="og:url" content="', $scripturl ,'?topic=',$context['current_topic'],'.0" />';
echo '
<meta property="og:type" content="article" />

echo '

it's working good for topic pages, but not for smf articles. what's wrong?

Post by: Ataru Moroboshi on June 18, 2015, 11:05:42 AM
I opened a ticket in facebook help,

they say PHPSESSID is the problem:

Quote
Hi David,

When our crawler accesses your page your server is injecting a PHPSESSID into the url and in turn you are displaying it in your og:url. This is what the crawler sees when it accesses your site.

<meta property="og:url" content="http://www.mydomain.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=44khamiod3qpj5sgr38pscvmv0&amp%3B%2Faction%2Carticles%2Fsa%2Cview%2Farticle%2C93.html" />

As this is the url that the crawler believes you want to be used as the canonical it redirects to that location and scrapes it. If you visit that url you will see that the og tags on that page match your index page.

To rectify this you will need to ensure that you are not using this url with PHPSESSID in your og:url.

Thanks,
Darren

any idea?

Forgive me for asking, vbgamer45, because I know you guys are busy with other things, but I was wondering if it's possible to be able to preview an article before posting, as one can with a regular post (as we can here, for instance)?  I've just tried a test article and, while there is an "Add Article" button, I'm sort of working blind, because there's no way to know how it will look before I commit it. 

It it's a lot of trouble, no worries, but one has to ask.   :)

Thanks @vbgamer45 for this mod!
 I've just started using this and have some questions. First I'm looking for the code I should change to make the sub categories titles in index table bold. I could make main categories titles bold by changing the following piece of code in Articles2.template file but could not find the code for sub categories there. I'll wait for your kind advices as always! Thanks in advance.
Code: [Select]

foreach ($context['articles_cat'] as $row)
{


$totalarticles = GetArticleTotals($row['ID_CAT']);


echo '<tr>';


if ($row['imageurl'] == '')
echo '<td class="windowbg" width="10%"></td><td  class="windowbg2"><b><a style="font-weight:bold;" href="', $scripturl, '?action=articles;cat=', $row['ID_CAT'], '">',parse_bbc($row['title']), '</a></b> ' .

Thanks for your quick replay. Due to my poor English, I think I could't explain my request well. When I say I'd like to make titles of sub categories bold, I mean the second page which is load after clicking on one of the main categories in main category list. The page which contains the index table of sub categories on top followed by the list of articles not the small text link tree like row that is below the description of each category in main category list of articles main page. Although I can see <b> tags there but I don't know why they don't work! I'm pretty newbie in coding so could you please tell me if there is the proper name id or class that I can use in a css file for this matter? I mean some thing like this:
#smfarticles_subcats a:link { font-weight: bold; }
I'm sorry if this sounds silly question and thanks again for kind support!

hi all,

hope everyone is doing well.

i'm liking SMF Articles mod so far. Coodos to the author.

Question: Does anyone know if the Breadcrumbs could show:
"Home >> Articles" when its just "?action=articles". No "cat=#" or "subaction=*".

Some Mod's show it, others don't. If i need to hack the code, i'll do it. As long as it shows the Mod's root node in the Breadcrumbs.

Any hints?
Thanks.

link to page: http://kissui.izzysoft.com/support/index.php?action=articles

i'm wondering how to always show `Articles`, which i can't see at this moment.
ex:
(http://image.prntscr.com/image/8c44db7a3c0e433a8f0affe1811f960b.png)

thanks for any help, Izzy.

edit:

even if i'm a n00blet to PHP, SMF, i tried looking at ./Sources/Articles2.php
i though perhaps the section that sets the page title to this code (below), was the section to focus on?
Code: [Select]
// Set page title
$context['page_title'] = $mbname . ' - ' . $txt['smfarticles_title'];

so i looked and looked and maybe mistakenly thought that this code (below) would force the "$ >> Articles" to show now, addd this just below the code that Sets the Page Title (from above)
Code: [Select]
// Set Breadcrumbs
$context['linktree'][] = array(
'url' => $scripturl . '?action=articles',
'name' => $txt['smfarticles_title']
);

but nope. :[

Could it be a Template?
The Display script that's the culprit instead? :p
SFM version 2.0.11?

i'm not sure. brain overload. :{

Hello,

I installed this under the advice of Kindred.

I know nothing about this, other than it creates a method of creating, approving, sorting, editing, and deleting articles.

I looked at the permissions and it is straight forward about what is permitted and what is not based on membergroup.

I do not believe that this is going to work for me, because when adjusting permissions, it allows all regular members to do something.

My preferences are that a lower post-count membergroup can view articles, but cannot post/create them, and higher post-count membergroups can post/create them.

This provides incentive for members to post. At least that is the way I see it.

To facilitate my desires, I have created boards that members can see, but are read-only, then as a child-board, higher post-count membergroups can "submit" articles (lower post-count membergroups cannot see this board) and the submissions are viewed by the Staff and either approved (moved to the parent board), or are not approved and moved to the Recycle Bin.

Am I way off here, or is my thinking sound?

Be Well,
Siirist
Title: Re: SMF Articles
Post by: Kindred on July 11, 2016, 11:04:45 AM
of course it allows that....  you just have to turn off ("disallow") permissions for the regular members group and then ALLOW for the post-count based groups.
I use exactly that setup on 40konline.

Old-time members are allowed to post articles - must be approved by an admin
all members are allowed to read articles.

These are the permissions...
View Articles          
Add Article          
Edit own Articles          
Delete own Articles          
Rate Articles          
Leave Comments          
Articles Auto Approved          
Auto Approve Comments          
Admin Articles


If auto-approve is not allowed, then the article or comment must be approved by someone with Admin Articles permission

Post by: Siirist on July 12, 2016, 11:48:06 AM
Kindred,

Thank you so much for this detailed clarification.   :)

I discussed this and the Knowledge Base mod with the forum owner, and she is not interested at this time due to the "newness" of the forum.

I have un-installed, but they remain up-loaded for future use should the need arise.

As always, I appreciate your words.

Be Well,

Does anybody has a german translation of this mod?

I've made some passable translations of a few mods using Google Translate, pasting the strings in and then copying them into a new language file. They aren't perfect but in most cases they're good enough to be understandable.

Also, there are some forums like http://linguaholic.com (http://linguaholic.com) that can help you with translations.

Hi vbgamer45,
I have tried the Search.
I searched to "german", "deutsche" and "translation"
I don't find anything suitable.

@ MrMike,
Its not the problem to translate it - it is a problem of time I need for this.

Thanks anyway

Unless there are a ton of strings it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to do it in google. It might not be a perfect translation but it'll usually be good enough to use.

Hi Friends,
A member just alerted me to the fact that people who are not logged in (guest or member) can't view a list of articles by that user, if the user gives them a link to My Articles.  We have figured out that that particular button only displays the articles of the person who clicks it.  So if I follow the link he provided for his My Articles, I only see my articles.

It does seem reasonable that people not logged in, and even guests should be able to see the list (if the permission is set that way, which it is).  I would expect all the editing buttons to be grayed out or missing.  But the list with links, just to read the articles, I'm not sure why it's blocked.

We're banging our heads trying to find a way for one member to show a list of all his articles, which are scattered through a few different categories, on one page.

The forum search doesn't search articles.  The article search won't search by username, with the search field blank.  And how can you fill in a 3 letter search term and be sure it will find all the member's articles?  Even if you wanted to use google, his articles are scattered through categories, so you'd have to search each category, wouldn't you?  Or is there a way to use google, and only have articles, or at least all his articles at the top, in the results?

Any ideas?

Thank you very much   :)
Title: Re: SMF Articles
Post by: Kindred on April 29, 2017, 07:45:30 PM
If the my articles link has no userid included, of course you would see YOUR articles (and guests would see none)

This is correct and appropriate - just like the user profile

In order to share a user's list of articles, he/you would need to include the userid in the URL
Title: Re: SMF Articles
Post by: brynn on May 01, 2017, 04:40:10 PM
Thanks Kindred  :)

Well this is the link to his My Articles:  http://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php?action=articles;sa=myarticles;u=14

When I follow it, I see my articles.

This is the link to my My Articles:  https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php?action=articles;sa=myarticles;u=1

When he follows it, he sees his articles.

Edit
We've pretty much concluded that a guest would not be able to see the articles using My Articles link, in any case.  What we need is a way to display a list of a member's articles.

Can anyone think of a way?

Thanks again  :)

After successful installion there was no link in the menu bar for Articles. Couldn't add an article.

I'm using the default English language for smf and default core theme.

From the Admin menu area I can see the Articles Configuration and its sub-items. There is the Settings which has an Articles url and an Articles Path.

I suppose I can take the Articles URL and make my own link in the main menu bar, but I thought the program would make the menu bar link automatically.

Branch: SMF 2.1

I just briefly tested this mod for someone that was having an issue.

The installer adds both manual parsing edits & hooks that have the same purpose.
The redundant file edits need to be removed and perhaps add an icon (& path in its hook) for the navigation menu.

Post by: Aleksi "Lex" Kilpinen on May 06, 2018, 10:26:39 AM
A nice system, but the permissions don't really play like SMF permissions usually do. I can not seem to be able to make a category that is viewable only by one membergroup.
At least I haven't found a way to do that.

To explain a bit further:
My permissions on the forum use allow, disallow and deny.
The membergroup permission to view in forum wide permissions is allowed for everyone, because this is a master setting for the articles page.
I have a membergroup X that I would like to give exclusive access to a category, regardless of that group being in primary or secondary group for the member.
So far I have not been able to find a combination of the permissions that would allow this. Either everyone gets in, or no one gets in. ( Well, I can limit out groups completely, like guests - but if I limit say group Y, and a member is in both Y and X he will not get in because Y is denied. )

global $context, $modSettings;

$permissionList['membergroup'] += array(
'view_articles' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'add_articles' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),

'articles_autocomment' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
'articles_admin' => array(false, 'smfarticles', 'smfarticles'),
);

// SMF 2.1 branch behavior will differ
$version = version_compare((!empty($modSettings['smfVersion']) ? substr($modSettings['smfVersion'], 0, 3) : '2.0'), '2.1', '<') ? 'v2.0' : 'v2.1';

re. permissions

I'll give you a modified install file.
It's not my mod therefore I will not upload an updated package.

You'll have to unzip the package and replace the articles2.xml file with what is attached then re-zip the package and install it on your forum.
Report back and let us know if it resolves your issue.
If it does perhaps vbgamer will update his package with the fix.

Okay, thanks for the effort - but comparing the original and your file, I'd be willing to guess this will have no effect.
That would only edit the part where ManagePermissions.php specifically states that it's completely optional to use.

// List of all the groups dependant on the currently selected view - for the order so it looks pretty, yea?

Title: Re: SMF Articles (1.4 Released with SMF 2.0 support!)
Post by: Westwegoman on June 20, 2018, 08:47:32 PM
Vb, it seems that when 'liking' an article and pasting an article link on facebook, it does not take you to the article itself, it posts the home page link instead.

I just recently noticed that pasting a link to an article in Facebook actually posts a link that brings up the home page also.

I searched through but didn't see a solution, unless I missed it.

It is probably do the url having a ; which SMF uses by default and Facebook does not like those characters.

Ok thanks. I saw you had said that but didn’t know if a work around had been discovered.

Basically change the links to use & instead of ;

How would one go about doing that?

It would require opening the template files for articles and changed the url passed in the facebook code I believe

I think this mod needs to be updated.
In SMF 2.1 RC2+, when I write an article, I get an error message directly in the editor window:

Code: [Select]
Notice: Undefined index: show_bbc in /home/bulataka/public_html/test/Themes/default/Articles2.1.template.php on line 853
Click => (https://i.postimg.cc/Xpcgrd6y/Error-Articles.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/Xpcgrd6y)

Also, when I try to import Tinyportal articles (I use Tinyportal 1.6.5), I get two error messages:

- first error message at the top:

Code: [Select]
Notice
: Undefined index: admin_menu_name in
/home/bulataka/public_html/test/Sources/Articles2.php
on line
1829

- second error message, as message box:

Code: [Select]
Database Error
Unknown column 'authorID' in 'field list'
File: /home/bulataka/public_html/test/Sources/Articles2.php
Line: 2912

Title: There is no way to add a new article: SMF Articles 3.04
Post by: captcha on September 15, 2020, 08:06:58 AM
I tested SMF Articles 3.04 in SMF 2.0.17 and 2.1 RC. There is no way to add a new article. I added a category at first. Changed permissions to global moderator. There is no place can find add article button for any members (even if administrator, global moderator).
SMF Articles 3.03b can add a new article.
I do not if it is bug or there is any trick to add a new article.

Inside the category do you have this near the bottom
"Add Sub Category - Add Article -  Return to Article Index"


Also, do you have any permissions setup on the category. If so can you take a screenshot of what you have setup.

Thank you very much for your reply. I attached three pictures, I am not for sure they can be shown. The SMF 2.017, SMF-Articles 3.0.3b works, but 3.0.4 does not. I attached the screenshot when  'Articles' button is selected, and screenshot of permissions (3.0.4 at SMF 2.0.17).
For SMF version 2.1 RC, 3.0.4 did not work at first, after I installed 3.0.3b and created two categories, then uninstall 3.0.3b, reinstalled 3.0.4, 3.0.4 works.
Both logged in users are administrator. ( I tested global moderator, got the same results.)

For permissions was asking about the permissions on the category level
Here is a quick video https://softwaredemos.tinytake.com/tt/NDYzMjA0MV8xNDY4MTY4Mw

The SMF-Articles is the only package installed.
3.0.3b version, there is:
Add Category - Add Article - Settings -  Permissions
but 3.0.4 ( installed at SMF 2.0.17) there is no such thing.
In Admin, "Articles Configuration" is missing at 3.0.4 (installed in SMF 2.0.17).
There is no way to add a category.
The first picture showed what happened after "Articles" button was clicked in my last reply.

Thank you so much for your reply and video.

Ok looks like an edit failed to the index.php file for SMFarticle3.04.jpg
It should not redirect back to the board index

Upload the package to https://www.smfhacks.com/smf-package-parser.html to find the edits and make sure the files are copied to the right places.

This time it works.
I downloaded SMF-articles 3.0.4 again, and reinstalled it to SMF 2.0.17.
I checked my PC's file manager, it showed my old SMF-articles 3.0.4 was downloaded on April 17th, this year.
SMF-articles 3.0.3b was downloaded on March 29th, this year.
Thank so much.
