I'm not sure how the backend for the GARS works, since I have not had a use for it yet (but I am planning a site that could use it, so I may make a purchase when it goes gold). BUT, from a user standpoint, I think it would make it groovy to somehow make the Articles and Reviews a little different on the forumhome. They look just like regular old forums, and it might be a little confusing. If they had their own indicators on forumhome, it would make it a little more clear this aint just a regular forum. Follow what I mean?

Also, some sort of custom bbcode for pages, table of contents, or whatever would really be cool. I don't know how the system works, so trying to make an article didn't prove very fruitful for me.

Also, the byline seems like it should go UNDER the title, since that is how it is displayed when VIEWING an article. When I made my test article on keytars, it made it seem as the the byline was in fact the title of the article, since it appeared first.

I agree about the byline bit. Luckily - with a tad bit more template editing that can be sorted out. Ill include better instructions when we get closer to gold.

As it is now, you can actually place those seperate areas into different parts of your template. Personally I think it would be better if it all came AFTER the message editor.

As far as the forum display, That is true - but im not 100% sure what can be done about it. THere is (rather will be) an option to override the forumdsiplay as I would like to offer the ability to stick mods in there which in turn would enable changing the forumbit a little easier.

I dont want to get to bogged down with the bbcode thing as im not too sure how to hook effectively into it yet. Ideally I would jsut prefer a button on the editor that asks you for the name of the next page (like the url popup). But we shall see ;)

That would work, or even a little bit on the options part of the post explaining some of your options while writing your article/tutorial/review.
