Articles 1.1.1 has been released. See a list of resolved issues over at the GitHub repo. Here are the main changes:

  • License changed from GPLv3 to GNU GPL2
  • A lot of bug fixes, including patches for reported issues, namely a patch to prevent unauthorized commenting from guests, and fixed search functionality
  • Articles Categories module added with an option to change from a list to a drop-down
  • An index page that lists article categories added
  • Recent Articles module added
  • "About the Author" box added under articles
  • "You may be interested in..." (similar / random articles) box added under articles
  • Article thumbnails and images in body are now responsive
  • Cleaner looking Articles Compose dashboard
  • Other small things have been made cleaner looking, such as sprites that have been added next to navigation links
  • Some code has been optimized for performance

Along with this new release, the "Articles - Social Reactions" plugin has been updated to 1.0.1, which includes an updated design (requires Articles 1.1.1) for displaying the social reactions.

A big thanks goes out to everyone who had provided feedback on this application by reporting issues, bugs, and making suggestions.

Note: Articles 1.1.0 was released earlier today, but 1.1.1 fixes an issue with the "similar articles" styling conflicting with another CSS class.

  • Hello,
    thanks for that great plugin!
    I cant find a way to change the article categories...

    Also is it possible to implement the articles within a category of the main forum? so that it does not only show on the side panel?
    Thanks!

    Hi @AlpForum, thanks for using my app! You can add and edit article categories from the Vanilla dashboard if that's what you're looking for. Regarding your second question, articles and its categories are entirely separate from Vanilla forums; however, it's possible to show a separate box above forum category index with a custom plugin.
