Where can I see a demo of this article and review system?

what im looking to do is basically create pages with different content and have users be able to review the items. I have vbadvanced cms installed and im running vb 3.6.4. Its basically going to be a store in a sense but users will deal with all the payment processing and ordering on an external site I will just have them all indexed on my forum and want the ability to have them review it and sort by category and what not. Will this add-on allow this?

Thanks

There are examples in these forums:

http://www.thevbgeek.com/forumdisplay.php?f=54

You could make a forum where you can post new threads, and others could reply to those threads, and then you could change that forum into a GARS based review forum. There is a review example/thread here (http://www.thevbgeek.com/showthread.php?t=4805).

ok that looks great. One other question can I create different category's of reviews/articles via possibly a sub forum or something like that?

1: You can type one forum or sub-forum to be for reviews and type another forum or sub-forum to be for articles. You can use the same or different type for all, some, or none of the forums/sub-forums. More on assigning types can be found here (http://www.thevbgeek.com/geeki/index.php/Types).

2: Yep, this site is running GARS and vB 3.8.1. :)
