[JoyFreak] Articles Extended (Classic News) 1.3.0

No permission to buy (£30.00)
  • Added widget definition to display a list of new articles. Simply head over to Widgets > Add widget > Widget definition: [JoyFreak] New articles
  • Added a few extra style properties for the widget styling
  • A couple styling adjustments
  • Added style property to add padding around the article message.
  • Added style property to remove post replies from article posts (this was added because of an upcoming free add-on).
  • Added option to enable "NewsArticle" schema for article posts. You can learn more about this schema here.
  • Two custom user fields can be added for:
    • Author name
    • Author about
If you want to replace the default "About you" output for the article author box and the article poster's username in various parts of the article forum view and article post then use the following Field ID's under Users > Custom user fields:
  • jfae_author_name
  • jfae_author_about
The rest of the other fields are optional. You'll want "Single-line text box" for author name and "Multi-line text box" or "Rich text box" for author about. The author about allows use of BBCode.

Suggested "Author name" description:
If specified, this will replace the username displayed on article pages.

Suggested "Author about" description:
If specified, this will replace the about you description displayed in the author box on article pages.

If you want to control the permissions for who can view/use these two fields then I'd recommend this free Custom Fields Permissions add-on by Xon.
