Please, post all from the Articles settings page, then.
Seems we were under the impression that the articles section was done as a block, as is usually how people set it up.

So much for not knowing articles are displayed in the home page when "enable articles" is checked.

What we know up until now is that when the article are shown on the portal page, some may be missing (see the OP).

Why articles do not show up?
I have close to no idea.

But, looking carefully (see the attachment) in some articles malex is colored in red (admin groun), in others is not.
So a question arises: could it be you did some change somewhere in the past to the way articles are picked and shown?
Do you have other mods installed?

This looks quite curious indeed. I don't see why something like this should ever happen unless some other mod or modification is doing something unusual, but you never know!

In addition to emanuele's questions; please attach the following files from your forum for starters: ./Sources/PortalArticles.php and ./Themes/default/PortalArticles.template.php
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

SiNaN, thank you for forwarding me  :nervous-happy:

I carefully checked PortalArticles.php,
exactly the code:

Code: [Select]
$article_request = $smcFunc['db_query']('','
a.id_article, a.id_category, a.id_message, a.approved, as cname, c.picture, m.id_member,
IFNULL(mem.real_name, m.poster_name) AS poster_name, m.icon, m.subject, m.body, m.poster_time,
m.smileys_enabled, t.id_topic, t.num_replies, t.num_views, t.locked, b.id_board, as bname,
mem.avatar, at.id_attach, at.attachment_type, at.filename
FROM {db_prefix}sp_articles AS a
INNER JOIN {db_prefix}sp_categories AS c ON (c.id_category = a.id_category)
INNER JOIN {db_prefix}messages AS m ON (m.id_msg = a.id_message)
INNER JOIN {db_prefix}topics AS t ON (t.id_first_msg = a.id_message)
INNER JOIN {db_prefix}boards AS b ON (b.id_board = m.id_board)
LEFT JOIN {db_prefix}members AS mem ON (mem.id_member = m.id_member)
LEFT JOIN {db_prefix}attachments AS at ON (at.id_member = mem.id_member)
WHERE {query_see_board}
AND a.approved = {int:approved}
AND publish = {int:publish}
ORDER BY a.id_message DESC' . (empty($modSettings['articleperpage']) ? '' : '
LIMIT {int:start}, {int:end}'),
'approved' => 1,
'publish' => 1,
'start' => $context['start'],
'end' =>  $modSettings['articleperpage'],

I run it as test and saw dublicated rows for Malex...

Some time ago I changed Avatars folder on server for users,
The snag - Malex had 2 avatars in attachments table, see attach,
I don't know which bug is it in Articles, SMF or SP,
but after deletion a dublicate I got a right Article visualisation!  :nervous-happy:

I'm very glad!

Thank you all for help

Track when the second avatar was added may be rather tricky indeed.
Judging by the look of the name, the "old" avatar is pre-2.0 RC1-1, while the other is post.
Probably something happened and SMF was not able to drop the old one in favour of the new and things got messed up.

yes , it is a first article, but there are 3 more after it, but they are invisible (approved),
page2 shows 5,6,7,8 articles and so on...
