So i've posted here in the past and I am helping out with GliderCentral.net and there is an Article section on it. There are articles there now and I can find the files and edit those if I wanted to change those, but my question is how do i add a new article?

There appear to be a lot of files linking to the articles, so even though I uploaded a new .tpl file and I can see that in the templates section of the control panel, how do I make it show up in the Articles section now?

Thanks,
Phil

What is it that you're attempting to do? UBB.threads is a forum software; it does not have "articles", it has "forums" and "threads" (a "forum" holds "threads").

It is important to note that any modifications to the forum software (scripts or template modifications) are generally unsupported.

What I'm assuming, without knowing your community in depth (though I'm probably the only one who worked with Eddie in the beginning of your forums), you're trying to edit threads in an "Articles" forum, which should be as simple as accessing that forum and clicking on an "Edit" link (like what you'd see under your post above, to the right). If your account does not have moderator, global moderator, or administrative control over that particular forum, you will not see an edit link for any post made by any user account other than your own.

This Gizmo, and yes I know you worked with Eddie, so thanks for your assistance.

It doesn't appear it is a forum, so that would explain why I can't really find it as part of the UBB.threads site, that now makes sense to me. The Articles section is on the Portal section of the forum on a custom island. I am just not familiar with that portion is all.

I'll have to look in to it more as i said I can find and edit, via an html editor of the built in template editor, the .tpl files that are being used to display the information. I just don't know, at least as of yet, how to add a new one to that section.

Thanks,
Phil

Any time smile.

The Custom Islands can be managed through the UBB.threads Control Panel at:
CP -> Portal -> Custom Islands

If you can supply the contents of one, wrapped in [code] tags please, I could attempt to help debug.

Looking at the data that is displayed in that content island, it could just be a simple HTML list of additional systems that Eddie had created using the UBBWiki Guide Creating a New UBB.threads Page; if you guys are looking to hire out any assistance to create additional items, I am generally available through my business page VNC Web Services

Thanks Gizmo, I'll see if I can figure it out, I'm no expert but I can usually figure these kinds of things out eventually. It is nothing major just some minor things we want to add to the site, but don't really want as a forum post.

If we want to move forward with some assistance I'll be in contact.

Phil

Not any problem at all, good luck! I try to outline everything as clearly and simple as possible on UBBWiki.
