not really. I havent had time to dissect his code yet :(

Hmm, this is a bugger, I installed GARS on test and it's falling out with AEO - "You did not specify a username for your post" - time to have a look why.

Nice to see a advanced coder supporting GARS now. :)

Edit: See post #16 below for fix to AEO.

Thanks Paul, several have been asking about this and I havent had time to look at the AOE hack yet.

Fix to modify the AEO hack itself - I've had to do this because it breaks a hack of mine as well :rolleyes:

In the AEO 'init_startup' hook ;

Find ;

PHP Code:

    global $vbulletin

Add below it ;

PHP Code:

    // Bypass Options // 
    // By Paul M - Because some mods choke on AEO // 
$bypass_aeo false
    if (
THIS_SCRIPT == 'report'$bypass_aeo true
    if (
is_object($vbulletin->gars)) $bypass_aeo true

    if (
$bypass_aeo) { 
$vbulletin->userinfo['editlevel'] = EDITLEVEL_AUTHOR
// End of bypass options //

I was having this problem and this worked nicely, thanks Paul M :)

I had a little problem with the Thread Prefix hack complaining, but it can be fixed by simply setting Thread Prefix settings to 'Use Forum Based Setting' and turning 'Thread Prefix Required in this Forum' to no.

I solved this by using the following workaround at given by Paul if I remember right:

In the AEO 'init_startup' hook ;

Find ;


global $vbulletin;
Add below it ;


// Bypass Options //
    // By Paul M - Because some mods choke on AEO //
    $bypass_aeo = false;
    if (THIS_SCRIPT == 'report') $bypass_aeo = true;
    if (is_object($vbulletin->gars)) $bypass_aeo = true;
    if ($bypass_aeo) {
        $vbulletin->userinfo['editlevel'] = EDITLEVEL_AUTHOR;
        return EDITLEVEL_AUTHOR;
    // End of bypass options //

I've also added a 'cache_templates' hook ;


$globaltemplates[] = 'adv_editform';
