Template Sets

From Geeki

A Template Set is a group of templates that override the normal vBulletin ones. This allows GARS to transform the look and feel of vBulletin on a forum by forum basis.

Once a template set is created, it can then be assigned to a type.

To create a template set, browse to your template set manager (admincp->gars->templates) and click Add New at the bottom of the list of existing term sets. To edit a template set, simply click on its name.

When you Add or Edit a Template Set, you will be presented with the following options:

  • forumdisplay - the template to use instead of FORUMDISPLAY (default: GARS_forumdisplay)
  • threadbit - the template to use instad of threadbit (default: GARS_threadbit)
  • Deleted threadbit - the template to use instead of threadbit_del (default: GARS_threadbit_deleted)
  • Showthread - the template to use instead of SHOWTHREAD (default: none)
  • First post in showthread - the template to use for displaying the first post in a thread (default: GARS_pb)
  • First post on additional pages - the template to use as a preview of the first post on additional pages in GARS (default: none)
  • Comments - the template to use for additional posts in a thread. GARS_comment is the default and is a condensed version of postbit. GARS also comes with GARS_comment_plus which is an enhanced version of the normal postbit that allows ratings to be displayed in the users post. (default: GARS_comment)
  • Deleted Comments - the template to use instead of postbit_del (default: none)
  • New Thread - the template to use instead of newthread (default: none)
  • Edit Thread - the template to use instead of editpost (default: none)

If the setting is left blank, GARS will either use the vBulletin default template, or will not display anything (depending on the template).
