Converting from ReviewPost
 
I currently am running ReviewPost and feel GARS might be a better solution. Is there a way to directly move my current reviews from ReviewPost to GARS? Or would I have to log in as each of my members who posted a review and redo the review as them?

Sorry, but I know of no ReviewPost to GARS import script. GARS reformats default vB forums/threads so, if ReviewPost reviews are posts in vB, then the posts should still be there, and you'd just need to apply a GARS type to the forum containing the reviews. If, instead, ReveiwPost stores the reviews in its own tables, then your members would need to recreate the reviews in GARS. You cannot post as another person, unless you find something on vBorg that allows it.

As Morgan said, no way to do it that I know of and ReviewPost does store them in its own tables. I might suggest modifying ReviewPost to suit your needs which is what I've done at http://www.caymanclub.net just click on ARTICLES in the main nav and you'll see what we've done there.
