    Shadowdare can we set it as the homepage which people should see first when they visit our site.

    You can set any page as the landing page by changing the DefaultController route

    It's the DefaultController route and there will be an option to set articles index as homepage easily.

    @Bleistivt, thank you! We're at $255 now. That's 51% of the way there!

    Everyone, here's some more info:

    Anyone looking to support this proposal doesn't have to send in money right away. You only have to make a public pledge of any amount in this discussion. When enough people have made a pledge to bring the total up to $500 or more, I will write a post letting you all know to send them in via PayPal.

    There's no deadline on when the application will be released, so when enough pledges are received, I will create a public GitHub repo for the development of this application so that other developers and designers may collaborate and support this application, and so those who have made pledges may follow along with the development until it's ready to be released.

    If anyone has any questions, other members and I will be glad to answer them!

    Thanks and waiting for marvelous Shadowdare.
    Great feedback of @peregrine and @hgtonight.
    I like it for our community users.
    If someone goes $35 to make it $300 , i go $50.

    if someone provides me with a concrete, accurate answer to this issue

    http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/25317/submit-comment-creates-new-comment-box-without-submitting

    then i will go in for $40. Otherwise it would be a waste of money, since i'll be switching platforms to phpBB or IPBoard as soon as i get a good target set up and conversion. (If i can solve the issue, i will stop working on the conversion)

    Hi, I pledge $50.

    Will it work with the Markdown input formatter, and the ImageUpload plugin? I not, I guess that would be a feature request :)

    $265 + @angophora $50 = $315

    Ok, If someone goes $35 to make it $300 , i go $50.

    $315 + @ohgot $50 = $365

    We're now at $365

    @ohgot, thank you very much.

    @angophora, thank you. The current plan is to start out with HTML first with custom HTML input filters as Vanilla's HTML filters strip out some markup that would be useful for articles and include a WYSIWYG editor that will make using HTML much easier.

    For image uploads, the current plan is to code a custom image uploading feature similar to the FileUpload plugin for the application.

    Hi Shadowdare, thank you. Might I comment that perhaps making the editing not too different from regular threads (with the selected InputFormatter and other entry plugins) would be an advantage? It would (I assume) be less coding work, and it would be less support effort for anyone trying to encourage their current site members to write more structured and organized articles. I've been there with Wordpress and won't be doing that again.

    My pledge stands of course, whatever you decide is best for the plugin. Perhaps I can help with some of the coding at some point. I'm only just starting with Vanilla (love what I've seen so far!) so won't promise too much.

    Thank you again.

    @Shadowdare you're most welcome

    not only for eArticle

    this application for eBlog eZine eNews too

    strongly agree with @angophora

    as simple as possible

    in order our community users to write/publish beside discussion/question

    thanks everyone

  • if you want to format per requirement

    Gdn_Format::Auto() formats to the current formatter, and you can use a column for format type. Gdn_Format::To(Body,Format)

    grep is your friend.

  • Raelly anyone could fork the HtmlLaw plugin based on their requirement an create their own formatter. You could all allow Raw formatting (no formatting) for the Article itself. Although it is something you would take care of, not in a community blog scenario.

    grep is your friend.
