Keeping an eye on this one...looks promising.

Questions:
  • How many queries does this modification use?
  • Any idea when this mod will come out of beta?
Feature requests:
  • Ability to import SimplePortal articles
  • Ability to add sub-categories
  • Ability to add link to KB as a sub-link, instead of in SMF's main navigation tabs
  • Ability to add attachments

Most mods add a menu tab, as yours does, to the main navigation bar of the forum.  I know there are ways to add the link to the Knowledge Base as a menu item in a drop down.  However...couldn't this be incorporated into the mod, as a "hook"...so an Admin can have the option to add this new tab as a sub-menu item in a drop down for the Forum tab...or any tab of his choosing for that matter?  Just asking...

Thanks for the quick reply, by the way.

Yes...however, as a sub-menu button in a drop-down.  Not as a main menu tab.

I look forward to your next release...

In the meantime...where's the code that adds the current KB tab to the menu?  I'd like to remove it and manually code Subs.php to add the link as a sub-menu link in the Help tab.

Thanks, in advance...

that can be found in sources/KB/KBHooks.php

Code: [Select]
if(!empty($modSettings['kb_enabled']) && allowedTo('view_knowledge')){
    KB_array_insert($menu_buttons, 'mlist',
     array(
    'kb' => array(
    'title' => $txt['knowledgebase'],
    'href' => $scripturl . '?action=kb',
    'show' => true,
    'sub_buttons' => array(
     ),
    'active_button' => false,
    ),
    )
    );
}

Thank you for the quick reply.

Edit...

Okay...I found a couple of issues with your mod.  I'm assuming it's your mod...or it could just be a conflict with other mods I have installed.  Anyhow...see attached image.

The avatar looks like it is not re-sized properly...it appears to be skewed a bit.
The mod has an issue with the [list] tag...be it just bullets, or decimal format.

I'm on the edge of my seat...

This mod is awesome!  Anyhow...I just wanted to make one more suggestion/feature request (if you don't mind).  The ability to change the "Author" of an article would be nice, too.  Whether the Author is another member, or source.

Also...I use a mod called ILA (Inline Attachments) which gives a user the ability to add images (as attachments) within a topic/post.  Is it possible for this mod to do the same...and/or incorporate that mod within it?

Other than that...I can't think of anything else.  Like I said...sitting on the edge of my seat for the next release.

I had been using Suki's FAQ mod...but, decided against it...for numerous reasons.  To each, his own, I guess.  Personally...I'm liking this one much better and just want to thank you for an awesome mod!

you can already change an author of an article after you have added it just go and edit it and chnage the member id

Okay...but what if the source is not a member/user?  What if the source was...say...from Wikipedia?  That's what I meant about changing the "source".  Just a thought...
