    CMS new article - data base

    CMS add new article concern

    Description:
    If you click "add new article" on your CMS page and than for some reason decide not to go with creating an article, if you just close the create article page for instance - than in Data Base, new table is still generated, you can see it in cms_node with NULL value...

    This action messes order structure, you never able to see this article, unless you manually type full url in your browser - than you'll see "new article - unpublished"

    I personally think no new table needs to be created in Data Base if you clicked create new article, but never did. Unless you choose apply or save.

    ChaFF: In the section editor, do you have "pagination links" set to "yes"? Don't know why that is not the default.

    I don't see any trouble doing the Rules thing.

    Create a section
    Add a page to the section.
    In the page options set the page to display full in the section instead of preview.

    Section + 1 page entry set to full view = page.

    You could get the add tabs mod and link directly to it.

    Does this sort of answer your question?

    Yikes. Sounds almost exactly like my last support ticket (SID-1028198-d2c1fccf) which we never did solve.

    In one of the sections - I've got 12 articles.

    I've chosen below settings in this section:
    Content Columns 3 column
    Content per page 6

    Problem: on a page it shows only 6 articles. In he bottom of this page 1 of 2 is not shown.

    Actually I have never said or implied 'get used to it, it's cool'. I simply stated a fact of how it currently works. I also fully understand the confusion and frustration. Sorry if that was not clear.

    Please feel free to make a feature request here:

    http://tracker.vbulletin.com/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa

    That is the best way to get these issues in front of the Devs.

    Yeah, although this honestly has never come up before that I have seen, I can totally understand the confusion.

    Right. I can't even argue the point because the same word is used for two different functions. My head hurts already just trying to figure out how to explain the problem.

    A Category in the CMS is just another Section with sub-sections. That will provide that same function as Categories and Forums in the forums.

    But there's no question there should be categories in the CMS. It's another case where whoever was writing the CMS apparently didn't know or care how the forum has done things for years, and used the same word for a completely different function. Mystifies everyone that tries to categorize things in the CMS.

    Categories in the CNS are not the same as Categories in the Forums. The CMS uses them as informational tags, while forum categories are really forums with a hierachical structure.
