Hello


I like the The Idea of the Article and Review System but there is some feature i love to see

Example know i need to use this system for book Review and sometime i will use a cover from http://www.amazon.com or maybe from a free image Hosting to Display the pic .. it will be nice if there is 2 options to use the cover by link or upload .. :)

also i need to have some Custom Field

Other :
Release Date :
buy From Amazon :

this is really nice feature just like PhotoReview
http://www.reviewpost.com/

Thankyou and i hope there is chanse to add this feature :);)

I like the idea of leaving a url instead of uploading. However you then have the problem of sizing. Ill look into it though.

As far as the other point... You can do this with the references module (or a slight tweak thereof) ;)

That is very good news :)

You can add some feature like the Normal Size to show and then if poeple need to see it with the orignal size they can Double Chick and it will show big .. something like this.. ;)

That also anther nice Feature like it .. i was Reguest a custom MOD it is the same one is use in "vB.org" The "Install System"

Example http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=75916

The way of this thread how to Show the Release Date/ Outher etc.. but after i find the Geek Article and Review System i think it is much better and maybe there is chanse to add some of the feature that i like :)

Custom Field Management

just Like When you Add a new Profile Field or the same VBlink/vBGallery etc.. :)


Also the feature to show All your Release and stuff in the Profile

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=41852

it is anther nice Feature sorry i dont bring it before.. but really it will give a chanse to everyone to to start his own Article ;)


Thankyou:cool:

Flexible image handling, and custom fields are the 2 most important things to me at this point. I will have hundreds of reviews with pictures so the current system wont work well for me.

Why? Why doesnt the new vb inline attachment system work for what you are trying to do?

Geek do you know AndrewD from vb.org who coded Links and Downloads Manager he has a feature that you can enter outside url for pictures and the script resizes the image. Maybe you can ask from him :)

But there is 1 feature i love to see :) I loved the featured feature but i know i'll have bunch of problems with my members. They will forget to add the featured date and next day they will ask why their article isnot featured. Is there any way to make an article automatically featured for 2 weeks at least.

I was pondering something similar.

I like the fine tuned control of editing the specific date, however it seems a bit laborious for most instances. I wasnt really intending the feature function for general users (figure they will all INSIST theirs is featured until the year 2345). I was thinking of a management screen for the feature dates.
Would an option to automatically feature new articles for x period of time suffice?

In line attachments as in just pulling an image from a URL using img tags? I was hoping for something more like the current attachment system where I can attach several images to an article. Similar to how CING did his hack.

Just attach as you would normally in a post and use the paperclip icon to insert the attachments in with the text

The only thing Im not anxious about is re-inventing the attachment system. Yes, facilities already exist in GARS to upload an image and thumbnail it - heck, Im sure I could do it from a URL. But its just a lot more work to do when plenty of other facilities already exist.

For instance, when I do my tutorials on my other site, I use vBa Gallery to upload all pics. I then jsut use my Gekk Gallery Popup mack to pop in clickable thumbs. The Geek Gallery Popup isnt out for 3.5 yet - but it shouldnt take too much longer to port.

Hey Walim,

No - neither feature will make it into this version. :(
I think there are enough attachment options already out there. I do like the clickable article header and Ill look into doing it after release (maybe for a 1.1 release ;) )

that will be great because example if i'm going to have review forum i will add cover for each thread from amazon

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000B8QEZG/ref=amb_center-8_124786001_8/104-6802055-2983954

http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000B8QEZG.01._PE42_SCMZZZZZZZ_.jpg

i can't upload all this cover in our server it will take alot of space :(

but that good news when u will add this feature :)
