    Just to let everyone know outside of the mods forum what is going on :)

    I'm currently waiting on vBarticles to be completed, which will provide the new article system - its in Beta now and should be released fairly soon (http://www.vbarticles.com/).

    At the same time, the main page/article pages will be spruced up greatly to fit in with the rest of the site. Reviews will be multi page, have a thumbnail gallery and automated comments threads.

    I've got my last week at university before Christmas starting tomorrow (busy busy busy), but then 3 weeks off for exams (which should mean I'll have plenty of time, as there are only 2 exams this semester). vBarticles and the rest of the changes should be in place then :D

    Sounds good.

    I like most of the changes, except the fact that I get no e-mail notifications to forum topic updates since the new forum software switch. :stickyma:

    haha, thanks :D Took ages to figure out what was wrong, but it looks like it was a bug with the 3.5.1 version of vB!

    Yeah, what Frankie said. :)

    Speaking of Frankie, how's your project coming along? You should post on my site more about it.

    I have one major problem with the site. Can you make the recent posts thing better? Rather that just show the newist posts that have been created on the forums, Show the latest replies. This makes alot quicker to find out what people are talking about.

    Just bought a new article system, as the vBarticles mod looks like it could be a while away. New system may even be live in the next 24 hours :)

    What's the new system you bought? And why do you keep paying for stuff that exits free of charge so many places?

    Its called GARS - wasn't expensive at all thankfully. Its the only vBulletin article system at the moment for 3.5, I was waiting for the free one but that was months away.

    Bit the bullet and got this installed (its 50% there already, just need to sort the URLs out).

    Hmm, looks fairly decent, did you go for the unbranded one? Only problem I see with it is that it's an annual licencing thing and that's nasty, I hate software that makes you pay over and over again to use it.

    I was confused by that too - the 1 year is actually the support/upgrades, but if it isn't used you have it for ever (and pay for any upgrades beyond that).
