Don't need all the bells & whistles.

Just a *stable* module that allows admin to set the categories and then allow users to submit articles to the categories of their choosing.

Visitors can then choose from among the categories and see the list of available articles.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I thought about that, but I'm already using it for announcements. Any other modules you'd recommend? Thanks!

hmm could try the hack module of it..
called Stories .. i think forgot..

basicly the same module but added features..

or maybe you can use Wfsection...

Soapbox is also a recomendation.. it allows a user to have a personal column..

Thanks. I like soapbox, except everything is sorted according to the column/columnist.

I was hoping for something that allows registered members to submit an article to a category of their choosing. Conversely, I want users to be able to choose a category, and then see a list of all the articles people have submitted in that category.

The closest things I've seen is the Sections modules that comes with xoops, but it seem to allow only admin to submit an article.

As for Wfsection... it's still bata and, besides, new versions seem to *NOT* be backward-compatible. And I'm not enough of a coder to know how to hack and patch things like that so I really need to stick with stable modules.

Again, thanks for all your help.

Thanks for the links, Catcity.

That could work. The only thing I wish is that the front end would simply allow a user to choose from a list of categories, then a list of articles under that category.

That's great.

But otherwise, no other stable modules available that allows user to submit articles to a category of their choosing?

hmmm not to say unstable..
just tat..
other modules have other ways to submiting or some diff interface..

Each have their own unique features..

the stories module seems to be the simplest and minimum requirement to do all those..
