Articles Manager V 1.57_8 Jack_mcs 11 Jul 2016  

- Added missing tell-a-friend definitions to admin/includes/languages/english.php

- Changed mysql code in the infoboxes to work correctly.
- Changed mysql call to mysqli in cross sell for 2.3.4 shops.
- Changed code to use css instead of tables (bs only).
- Corrected many html mistakes.

- Moved the css classes to the stylesheet file.
- Removed the application_top files for MS2 shops.
