The sorting of articles is controlled by the Article category. To determine the sorting method for your articles you will need to check the category setting. See for details: Article categories. When you have defined what method you want to use to sort the articles in a category you can sort your articles by changing the article attribute used for sorting.  Possible attributes are 'date', 'author', 'position' or 'id number' of the articles (ascending or descending).

To sort your articles you can go to: TinyPortal > Manage articles. Then select the category with the articles you wish to sort and you will see a list of articles within that category.

Articles are extra content pages that can be displayed just like any other part of the forum. The articles can customized completely to your liking: they may contain text and images (like a blog or documentation), forms or anything else that you can imagine.

When creating articles, there are different types of articles to choose from:
  • HTML: Article which contains HTML coding. This may be used to easily port existing web-pages to an article.
  • PHP: Article which contains PHP coding. This allows for complex functionality, but requires coding skills.
  • BBC: Article which contains Bulletin Board code. Similar to regular forum posts: most suited for users with limited technical skills.
  • EXTERNAL: Article that uses an include of a file outside TP, typically stored on the same server.

In order to be displayed in TinyPortal, articles are to be placed in articles categories. When accessing a Tinyportal category or sub-category page all articles within the category will be displayed in a customizable layout. Go to Article categories for more information on the subject.

Articles also have total customization. You can make each article appear as though it is part of the forum, or not part of the forum. Simple by adjusting what panels & blocks appear with the article, what theme is used and even comes with comments and a rating system that you can choose to enable or not.

To learn more about it's options, please read: Creating an article.

Blocks is a term for the rectangles of information you can use throughout the portal. For the sake of simplicity the page has been divided into the "panels", which when combined can mimic many common page layouts. These blocks can contain regular html, php code or special written functions that collect specific types of information. You can show them according to which permissions the visitor has, and even show them just in certain sections. You will come to love playing with them.

Go to the TinyPortal 'forum page' to see several Block types in action. 

To learn more about blocks and the options, please read:
Creating a block
Block Settings
or review other relevant information about blocks at: Documentation on blocks

To learn more about panels, please read this: What are Panels?.

The article will not be available visitors though.
