Is there a module (or setting?) for displaying screenshots to the right of tutorials??

When I'm writing a tutorial, there's an area to download a screenshot but it doesn't appear anywhere in the tutorial after saving it. Have I missed a setting somewhere?

I'd also like a featured Tutorials module. Another setting I'm missing?


See my screenshot please.

Go to the ACP -> GARS -> Modules -> click a module set -> tick the Forumdisplay radion button and there you can add the Featured and Top modules to the page. Afterward click the Featured and Top links that appear to configure the modules.

May I ask what the Top module does?

I have gone through your instructions above, and unfortunately, I cannot get the featured box to show up, no matter what I do. :(

Top lets you display "top x whatever" like on this (http://www.thevbgeek.com/forumdisplay.php?f=12) page. For featured, go to the ACP -> GARS -> Types -> click a type and check the following settings:

How many days to Auto-Feature?
Auto-Feature new threads?

Also check the following option in the ACP -> GARS -> Settings:

Enter Feature Dates

Afterward make sure the Featured module has been configured and post a new tutorial.

Oh ok I don't want the top anything. I just want to feature a single tutorial.

Ok I already had these set -

* How many days to Auto-Feature? - 5
* Auto-Feature new threads? - yes


In the Gars -> Settings, there is no option to enter Feature Dates. Not in the Gars settings.

The 'Enter Feature Dates' setting is in the Usergroup Permissions section of the ACP -> GARS -> Settings. There is a screenshot here (http://www.thevbgeek.com/geeki/index.php/Image:GARS_Usergroups.jpg) of that section.
