COMPLETELY redid the way thread types are represented in this update. In the previous version, promoting a thread type other than "discussion" would result in a loss of that thread type's special formatting. For instance, if you promoted a question/answer thread, you would lose answer voting controls. This update makes it possible to promote any thread type, while still retaining those special controls.
A reminder that XF2.2 is still in beta and not recommended for production forums.
This release updates the addon to work with XenForo 2.2+. This is a big update, so please inform me of any issues.
XF2.2 adds a new discussion type system. I have decided to incorporate the articles as much as possible into this new system. I deemed this a better solution than rewriting the entire addon as it's own discussion type; as that would have been a complete rewrite, and would have forced me to charge for it as a new addon.
Any thread promoted to an article will force it's discussion type to "article", regardless of valid discussion types of it's parent forum. This means that if you are promoting a thread from a non-article forum; it can still be shown as an article. This will not change the discussion type in your back-end database; it only changes the thread as it is presented to the end-users.
Setting the "Show author byline block" option will replace XF2.2's built-in author attribution block with the XenPorta byline block. If you disable this option, it will go back to showing XF2.2's built-in block.
BUG FIX: The article widget will no longer show future promoted articles.
NOTE: XF2.2 is still in beta at the time of this release.
Every update to Chrome seems to break something else in bxSlider. It has sort of become an intellectual arms race. A fix comes out... only to have it break again in the next version of Chrome. I personally have never had any issues, so I can't even tell if these fixes are working or not.
This version restores swiping for the feature slider, which was disabled in the last fix.
Fixes click-through issues introduced with Chrome 73... maybe, again, I never had the issue, so I can't confirm.
Fixed some slider issues... Hopefully. The last update was a hotfix for the issue of slider click-through no longer working in the most recent version of Chrome. That fix however, broke some other features of the slider, such as the progress bar. Please inform me of any issues with this new version.
Fixed some abstracted image paths for people who use CDNs.
