Module News 1.44 - not adding extended text

Hi everyone; i'm using a little bit old version of News Module (1.44), and am about to upgrade it, alltogehter with Xoops.
I'd appreciate you help me with this bug:
Sometimes (only sometimes), when Creating a new article, what i write in the "extended text" section doesn't appear when published. It DOES appear when editing that article, but in normal use, the option "Read more..." is not available.
The same problem occurs when creating an article with no extended text, and editing for adding extended text, and it isn't visible either.
I hope i made myself clear, and thanks in advance for any tip in order to solve this.

Emilio, I would just test the upgrade on a test installation to make sure that everything is working, and not bother with News 1.44 anymore, but update to the latest News version.

Just make sure that you have the right PHP version - I would recommend 5.4, but 5.3 is also good.

Thanks very much for your response!
I also thinks with the upgrade, this problem would be solved.
Anyway, would you help me find the lastest version of News? I can see now there are lots of alternatives.
My News Module is widely and for a long time being used, and i can't discard all this info with another news module.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Try to test the News 1.68 RC1 from XOOPS SVN. Just click on the "Download Snapshop" link.

The Final release should be soon...

What is "latestnews" - a block from News, or something else?

And what is the problem in detail? As you can imagine, "seems to not work with this update" doesn't give me enough information to give any meaningful advise.

Detailed description of the problem, copies of debug error messages, or screenshots of what is wrong are always helpful...

Sorry mamba, LatestNews 0.72 is a module to present a block with latest news from News Module:
====================================
Versión : 0,72
Autor : Mowaffak, Trabis, Bandit-x
Créditos : Original version Darren Poulton
paladin@intaleather.com.au

Ported by: Sylvain B. (sylvain@123rando.com)
Altered version SUIN
http://tms.s10.xrea.com:8080/
====================================

Since i've updated News module to 1.68 RC seems to be imposible to take the "topics" info so the block is blank, errors in debug info:

0,000340 - SELECT s.*, t.* FROM stories s, topics t WHERE (s.published > 0 AND s.published <= 1380191184) AND (s.expired = 0 OR s.expired > 1380191184) AND (s.topicid=t.topic_id) AND s.topicid IN (2,3,1,4) AND s.ihome=0 ORDER BY s.published DESC LIMIT 0, 5
Error number: 1146
Error message: Table 'aya2009.xaya_stories' doesn't exist

0,000354 - SELECT COUNT(*) FROM stories WHERE published=0
Error number: 1146
Error message: Table 'aya2009.xaya_stories' doesn't exist

Did you donwload it from here? It's old, it dates from 2008.

I saw this, this and this. Maybe it will help.

The database structure has changed, and the table is called "mod_news_stories", so you can update yourself the "latest news" to that and it should work.

I'll look into it today and provide an update, working with News 1.68. I guess, we'll need to release the final version too. And in order to avoid confusion with the numbering of xNews, I guess, we'll need to change the version number to something like 1.70...
