Im using your forum news hack and it works charm. I wanted to ask, could you make it to have news forum categories? That would be great. Also protect the setting page with a pass and captcha for security reasons.
Where would it get the category information from, as in how could it tell that one thread is 'sports' and the other is 'games' etc ?
No need to worry about the settings, you can only access that page if you a site admin.

I found a bug: If you post an attachment (any other than images) the URL of the attachment in forum_news.php is wrong. Could you fix it?

I found another bug: on v7.7 of 3107,i do this: I post an image in the forum(linking the iage with shortcodes),formate it to show in center,then post it. On forums it works fine,but not in forum_news.php
I must admit I never tested file attachment when I made it, in what seems like a long time ago, im surprised its still working with all the changes in e107 going on
Ive put up a beta here:
[ link removed ]
This should fix any relative links to the forum, such as the ones used by the File Attachment.
I tried a resized image and centering an image, and it worked ok for me.
Could you give me some more details, or post the exact same thing here so that I can edit your post and try it out ( a screenshot of the problem would also be helpful )

I uploaded a series of images with the step i have done. Actually with that beta...nothing was fixed... http://rapidshare.com/files/13907295/prob.rar.html as i mentioned: I have v7.7 Image posting enable for everyone and upload enabled for members. Also,enabled the upload/attachments in forum.
Hmmm, think you need to explain that in a bit more detail, or better yet post an image mock up.
Did you want just the icon, or both the icon and the text ?
For more than one attachment, did you want it side by side, or each one on a seperate line ?

What i mean in more detail: When I upload an attachment, contain all uploaded attachments in the "read more"(full topic)links. Now, regarding the way they are showed,i think that is of the forum templates stuff,so theres no need it to be done via the plugin.
Another thing,is if posible,to have BOTH forums news and normal news. Can this be done? Also last important thing, get nes from multiple categories(this could be doen with checkboxes,instead of a drop down list).
What i have in mind:Post one one column the users contributions and on the other my sites updates.
The thing is its the news.php or the forum_news.php that reads in the news_template, thats why its not a simple template change to merge both.
Categories from where and pull news from where, this is meant as a simple means of using a forum section to show news.

Well regarding my last suggestion the whole idea is that user-made posts make it to the frontpage as well. Ruch i'd like to ask a question:Do you do custom plugins?I need this mod for forum news,but most importanly i need another "forum ads" plugin. I will pay of course.
