You probably have to use the actual field name (which is not article_image). It's going to be field_##. I'm not sure what the ## is, you'd have to check your database for that. In either case, try using that and see if it works.
Very strange. That is definitely where it's coming from. Are you sure your language pack isn't protected or something? It is definitely not hard-coded. That's typically set by a developer. Leave it as is.
I haven't had any complaints about resources. The feed data is not pulled in real-time. It's captured and stored ("cached", if you will) in real-time, but then when you view the feed, you're basically only pulling data from a single table instead of from across the entire database.
You should be able to reorder the questions within a collection. So, in the ACP , find the collection you want to work with and click the "Manage Questions" button. Then drag and drop the questions into any order you want.
A new version has been uploaded to the Marketplace. Changes include: Users who had no permission to see profiles (e.g. guests) were able to see profile updates, registrations, etc. Fixed. All-day events were displaying as one day behind. Fixed.
Logged on to this site about 20 minutes ago (maybe more) for the first time since Monday night (8:00 PM maybe?). Hit "New Content". My preferences are set to show me topics since my last visit. I'm seeing 12 pages of topics, dating back to last Thursday. I have DEFINITELY been on this site since then.
if the hook is uninstalled, then it's gone. The settings should have been removed when you uninstalled, it's strange that they're still hanging around. In either case, if the "linktitles" files are gone in the hooks directory, nothing will happen. Make sure to remove the file that was uploaded to /admin/applications/forums/sources as well. As for a refund, you'll have to talk to IPS. I have no way of refunding a purchase.
