I would also like to know if Mystics thread prefix hack will work with GARS. It would really increase the usefullness with my site. Has anyone got this running with GARS that can confirm they play nice together?

Geek, any chance of getting this type of functionality aded natively into GARS?

I cant eventually look into it. THough I havent looked at the hack, im sure it will work. Just make sure you carry over template edits into GARS

It Works, but you must disable Pferix for tha GARS Forums. In all other Forums you can use it. I just need the Prefix anymore in all Forums I use GARS.

But it will be great if I can move the prefixes in a custom Field.

Sorry Hoffi, I'm not clear on what you are saying. You say it works but not in the GARS forums themselves?

Can anyone confirm that they have been able to get this prefix mod working with GARS?

All you have to do isapply the template edits to the GARS specific templates. i.e. what you change in newthread should also be changed in GARS_newthread, etc...

Clear as mud.
However prefixes(or equivalent) would be a great big deal because in our case we will be using Gars to document several hundred articles. Although we are already dividing those into subforums the added prefix option would allow our users to filter out articles by prefix or type which would be a GREAT BIG PLUS!

Currently we are experimenting with creating a flag to indicate whether or not an article is a Review or News but im not sure this technique can be the equivalent of thread prefixes. Unless gars can filter out threads like prefixes does...

Prefixes are definitely worth developing
