I more or less threw this together to fullfil a couple requests for a recipe module. The real goal was to create another simple module that can be used as an easy example of how to capture existing custom data.

In this module, a large textbox is provided to the user creating the new thread. The idea being that they enter each item required for the recipe on a new line lie this:


Gars would then display it in a block like this:

beerIt also parses bbcode :)

(see screenies).

To install: upload the shoppinglist.php file into your geek/gars/mods folder. Then register the module with the following settings:

Title: Shopping List
file: shoppinglist.php
templates: GARS_mod_containerThen you can add it to a showthread page of any of your module sets.

i have a problem with this hack, i have placed the shopping list at bottom and an attachment on right of contents, why has the image moved over to the left side of the page and not stayed on the right.

here is a link to show you what i mean

The problem happens with all gars postbits thathave a right hand column but not enough content to fill a line.

I havent been able to find a way to get IE to ALWAYS keep the freaking data to the right regardless of content. As soon as you put in a full line of text, it will be cool.

On a side note, if anyone wants to redo the template so that it doesnt do this (AND WORKS NICELY) ill give them £50. First one to submit wins :)

I wonder where the php file is. Im using GARS 2 Beta, but It would be awesome if I could read the code.

THough I havent tested it... I reformatted it into the GARS 2.0.2 version so it should work.

You are a lifesaver

Which table in database stores that info?

I am now doing a mycookbook feature which allows every user to populate recipes in their own cookbooks. Works great except that I also need to display the ingredients.:confused:

found them, never mind.
