Post Re: Pro_News 3.2 Now Available!

Hi Layingback.

I would like to thank you for an awesome module. I've been watching the Pro_news developing over the last year or more and this latest version pretty much covers all the features that I need.

A couple of things which you might be able to help me with.

When importing the existing articles, is it possible to also copy across the number of "views"?

Also on the templates, how do I add the numbers of views to the Headline display? I think number of views is very important, and would like it to be displayed on all articles, or at least have the option to.

Also having a problem when editing a section, it seems to always revert the forum type back to standard forum rather than fpro. I have to manually edit the database to put it back.

Thanks,
Mike

The import module is trivially simple,. I think you can probably figure it out Smile Haven't tested this, but here's a possibly correct solution. In modules/Pro_News/admin/import.inc change line 43 to:

PHP:
			$sql2 = 'INSERT INTO '.$prefix.'_pronews_articles VALUES(NULL, "1", "'.Fix_Quotes($row['title'],0,0).'", "'.Fix_Quotes($row['hometext'],0,0).'", "'.Fix_Quotes($row['bodytext'],0,0).'", NULL, NULL,"1", "'.$row['informant'].'", "0", "'.$row['time'].'", "0", "1", "1", "0", NULL, "0", "'.$row['alanguage'].'", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "'.$row['score'].'", "'.$row['ratings'].'", "'.$row['topic'].'", "", "", "1")';



Let me know what finally works if you would, and I'll include it in the release. (I've never used import myself Smile )

It is displayed on the actual article, just not in the headlines, nor is it displayed in the Intro part of the article. If you want to add, you could certainly easily add to the template by just copying the code from the article part. But currently the necessary field is not passed over to the template system.

What are your settings relating to ForumsPro, please? Esp. in Config.

Appreciated - as was your help during 3.2 and 3.1 releases.

If I can get my Ubuntu 9.10 upgrade stable soon, I'll have 3.2.1 ready for Sponsors!!!

FSC template, couple of minor fixes to code and templates, admin > pro_news menu links directly into Coppermine for create album, batch upload, batch add. Oh, and my Batch Upload hack for Coppermine (saves using ftp).

@MikeSCC, re your earlier question on showing number of reads.

Using the new Pro_News 3.2.1 just add:

PHP:
				  ({newshome.T_READS} {newshome.S_READS})

before the closing div for the postby statement in the Home section of your template, and/or paste the following

PHP:
				  ({newshdline.T_READS} {newshdline.S_READS})

before the closing div for the postby statement in the Hdline section of your template[php]

Hope this helps!

I'm also still waiting on feedback on your other 2 questions.
