vB News CMS

Built on the foundation of the 3.6 version, I've rewritten a lot of code and added a few things.

What does this do? It allows you to take your news from your news forums (up to 9 news forums) and display them in a category-style fashion with the ability to add new content, reply to the original story, send to a friend, and print.

Install Instructions

Located in the zipped readme.txt file.

New Features
- Allow usergroups to be able to add/reply to news/content.
- Give the ability to show archives (more than the initial x amount on the vbnews page). The archive page shows only the news/content for that specific forum and is however many you decide.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the forumid?
The forumid is the id of the forum you have created. Each forum has its own unique number assigned to it. When you click on a forum link you can see a number that is assigned to it. This will show up in the URL of the page you are browsing. Another way of seeing the forumid is to go to your admin control panel => Forums & Moderators => Forum Manager => Click on [Expand All] and then move your mouse over (hover) any of the forums you've created. Your status bar (bottom of screen) should display your forumid (number at the end of the link/url).

What if I don't like the archive name for the forum?
you can change this only in the vbnews.php file
Find each instance of
$archivetext			=	'forum1';
and change the forum1 to whatever you want it to say, but keep in mind that you will want to ensure each one is different (just as it is there).


none for 3.7

See screenshots for how it works. Sorry, no demo available at the moment.
