vBulletin 3.8.6/GARS v2.1.8 - compatible?
Did someone update vBulletin to v3.6.8 already? I wonder, if there are any incompatibilities with GARS v2.1.8b.

Since it's most likely not developed any further, I'm afraid to do the upgrade, without knowing what might happen. :(

We just upgraded our system to vB 3.8.6 as well as upgrading from vBa CMPS 2.x -> CMPS 3.0 RC1 and Photoplog -> Photoplog We'd been running GARS 2.1.8b for a while before upgrading all the rest.

We ended up pulling an all nighter ironing out the kinks with our revised site navigation system and we DID have a conflict between CMPS 3.0 RC 1 and vBSEO (easily fixed by changing the execution order of one of the vBSEO plugins so it ran *after* CMPS finished doing what it needed to).

But GARS? No problems or conflicts at all, didn't have to touch it.

To borrow Geek's pet phrase:

My custom fields do not display. I am using GARS 2.1.8c and vb 3.6.8.
I am also experiencing a Database error when editing a review:

So, does it work for most of you guys or not? I'm still in the process of deciding on upgrading or not! :P

You can upgrade. I am running them without any problem and i made different tests before upgrading and all came out ok.
