Hello, Only me again, Dirk, thanks for your help that you have provided over the past few days for me, I have solved the problem of not being able to submit any more then 3 stories, I killed my database and created a new one and its fine. Next question though. How can I get rid of the "(167 words)" from the stories? I have changed the wording, but can't find where this is being pulled from. Let me know Oneilxm

Look for the variable "readmore_link" in storybodytext.thtml and featuredstorybodytext.thtml (in the layout/YourTheme directory). Not sure what you want to do, though. If you remove that variable you won't be able to read the rest of the story ... bye, Dirk

Yes I have looked at them files, it must be pulling the variable from somewhere, but I can't think where. I would have assumed it to be in config.php, but it isnt. Also checked, lib-common.php which does display info about showing a story, but has no variable for word count. Can you ask the bossman himself? Tony? Cheers Dirk. oneilxm

Oh, I think I misunderstood your question. You only want to get rid of the part of the link that displays the word count, not the entire link ... Well, you need to hack lib-common.php for that. Search for "readmore_link" and you will find this: $article->set_var('readmore_link', '<a href="' . $_CONF['site_url'] . '/article.php?story=' . $A['sid'] . '">' . $LANG01[2] . '</a> (' . sizeof(exp lode(' ',$A['bodytext'])) . ' ' . $LANG01[62] . ') '); Simply remove everything after the </a> tag so that you get $article->set_var('readmore_link', '<a href="' . $_CONF['site_url'] . '/article.php?story=' . $A['sid'] . '">' . $LANG01[2] . '</a>'; That should do it. bye, Dirk
