Join In the Development

I did not set out to develop this version of Pro_News. I latched on to Kuragari's Pro_News Beta as a suitable Article- (versus News Story- ) based module. I managed to get that early Beta version running under Dragonfly (not realising at the time that it was developed under 9.1.x!), and implemented it in a couple of Production websites. Then discovered that Kuragari's priorities had shifted, and Pro_News release version wasn't likely to appear in the near term...   more ...

Article Templates

Share Your Pro_News Article Templates

I'm quite impressed with my IndexSP templates, but the other 2 are pretty mundane (too much of my time focussed on the Pro_news code). So if and when you develop new improved Article Templates for Pro_News, please - in the spirit of Pro_News GNU GPL development - consider releasing your template to share with others.

Please announce (and post using the Code bbcode button) your new, modified, improved Article Template.


Language Support

Please Help with Translations of Pro_News

I have taken Language support for Pro_news as far as I am able. I've moved every textual literal (I think/hope) to the pro_news english language file. I've also implemented multilingual support along the same lines as News - so that articles can be submitted in more than 1 language, with the appropriate article display under general user control via the CPG-Nuke Dragonfly Language option.

But my linguist skills run to English and American! So if anyone wishes to translate to other languages, I'm sure other users would be grateful.   more ...

Pro_News version 3.2: Lots of Improvement

Pagination in Article List in Admin Panel
I have been testing and using Pro_News 3.1 and I think this module has a powerful feature and need to be explored further, and of course need adding more great feature. I love too much for this Pro_News module, and that is why I am too interested to add some enhancements.

I almost complete my modification into version Pro_News version 3.1. Mostly, I made this modification based on the original News module such as "Related Topics" that I modified became "Related Articles" and "Notify Administrator of Pending Articles". The other modifications that I created is because of my need to manage article from Admin Panel, such as: Pagination link in Articles List page in, Forum ID selection in Category form, Show or hidden "No Image" holder in article page, Edit Forum ID from Submit Article page (just for edit/preview mode).

I am sure this will be useful to others who need this great module!   more ...

Can You Improve on the Pro_News Logo?

The Kuragari logo - the News logo with Pro written across it stands out like a sore thumb. Unfortunately my attempt - from a screenshot of a headline panel - just stands out as pathetic!

[ You can seem them both as I had to use them as icons for the other Sections above. ]

So ... If anyone feels they can do better, please forward as a .png of 48x47 pixels (w x h) if you would like it considered for inclusion.
