Article Forums Module for vBa CMPS
Created by bananalive. Ported to vB4 by av8or1.
Tested on vB 4.1.3 only. It should work on other vB4 versions, but I make no guarantees. I will try to offer some support for those versions if necessary; also no guarantees.
My forum membership chose to purchase the non-CMS vB variant, so in doing some research to find something we could use as "the face" of our forum, I found vBadvanced. We now use vBa as our "splash page." We had plenty of material that could serve as an articles section however, so the articles mod was essential. After discovering that there was a vBa articles module for vB 3.8, I knew that our forum could really use it. Since no version was available for vB4 however this presented a problem. So being a software type I decided to just create one myself by modifying bananalive's 3.8 version (rather extensively). Afterwards I checked in with him regarding the successful port and he blessed the notion of sharing it with everyone else. Thus here it is with his full permission. Hope it helps you just as it has helped the appearance and content of our forum.
What does this modification do?
This allows a module to be placed onto vBa CMPS page with same look (including thread thumbnail) as Article Forums.
(I currently have it set to appear in the right column with maxthreads = 2)
