    Default $Newscount

    In the 3.x versions, I was able to add banners (or whatever I wanted) after each news post using a conditional...

    PHP Code:
                    <if condition="$newscount == 4">
    This does not seem to work anymore. What is the proper conditional for this sort of thing in 4.0?

    It looks like that variable isn't globalized for the templates, so that's why it's not working. If you'll look in your modules/news.php file for two instances of this code:
    PHP Code:
                        $templater vB_Template::create('adv_portal_newsbits'); 
    And replace each with this:
    PHP Code:
                        $templater vB_Template::create('adv_portal_newsbits');
    Then you should be able to use the $newscount variable again. Note this change has been applied to the dev files as well so it will be included in the next release.
