I have already fixed this problem. But I am still documenting the changes.. together with Approve MOD and other MODs that should be made compatible with. Anyway, you can visit for a sample. You can also download the package and try it :)

hi, im just wondering.. is this mod similar to hyperion's weblog mod? would the two work together? or are they basically the same thing.. or is it more like Netclectic's FIND input news?

I have taken this mod and re-wrote as part of MX system and removed almost all of the modifications you need to do to phpBB. Instead of adding a column to the topics table stating that the post is a forum, I have a separate table, like a list of pointers of which topic is a news topic. I also did a bunch of fixes and added some new admin features. Also added a news queue and a submit news page that is separate from a forum post.

You can view information: here and here. Two sites that are using this live right now are here and here..

I only support people who run it as an mx-system module, and support for that is over at the mx forum.

CodeMonkeyX choose to go work on Drupal instead of phpBB+mods on his site so I don't think he's doing any support for this mod anymore.

Too bad codemonkey is not around anymore. Maybe the reasom why he is not answering my PM's and mails regarding the addition of this module as the homepage news section of IntegraMOD. I have also made this to a block for IM Portal.

Anyway, since codemonkey is not around and permission might not be granted as expected, I'll just post relevant information what I did with this modification here:

IntegraMOD - Slashdot News MOD as the main news module in the homepage

Integration with other MODs - code changes to integrate Slashdot News MOD with other available MODs

IM Portal - Slashdot News MOD can exist as a block in this portal project [ phpBB Beta development thread

Is there anything to modify to have the archives section translated ?
The month and days are not translated.

When you make a post a news item the images don't work, (BBcode disabled) - when you change it back to not-news the images still don't work.

Is it supposed to do that? I remember using images in earlier versions.

Missing bits - template trouble!

OK now I know what it should do, and it nearly works.
(this one works, but is it 1.0.1? )

But I can't get some elements to appear..

The category images at the top don't appear, the title..

The following elements in the news.tpl = ""


<!-- BEGIN categories -->
<div style="border: #ddd solid 1px; float: left; padding: 10px; margin: 10px;">
<a href="{INDEX_FILE}?cat_id={categories.ID}"><img style="border: 0" src="{categories.IMAGE}" alt="{articles.TITLE}" /></a>
<!-- END categories -->

Anyone know why?

Hi John!

The categories are not at the top anymore, but you can put them back by moving the code below up out of the 'if' in news_index.php

Code: Select all

  // View the news categories.
  $content->setVariables( array( 'TITLE' => $lang['News'] . ' ' . $lang['Categories'] ) );
  $content->renderTopics( );
I got the missing info in with a bit messy fiddling. I don't really understand why it works now, but it does. hurrah!

Install Issue

Was just going to install the news mod. There is an issue with the installation instructions.

After running the DB install, I started to copy files. On line 48, it says to:

Code: Select all

copy root/includes/functions_news.php to includes/functions_news.php
Only problem is, there IS no such file. In the includes directory from the zip file there is only, news.php, news_common.php, and news_data.php.
