Default GARS 1.0g Released

Hey Guys, sorry for back to back releases however the earlier versions were sort of 'works in progress' toward a service release. This one takes care of most key issues, however there are still a couple outstanding.

1.0g changes.
  • Bug fix for users not being able to edit post and change rating
  • Bug fix for editing another users GARS entry would make you the owner of the entry which caused some wackiness with the ratings.
  • Added traps for empty limit settings in featured and topx modules
  • Added code so that featured and top would not pull deleted threads (hurrah!)
  • Included an admincp URL to tidy up existing entries. I would suggest everyone run this as it will re-sync your gars table with correct userids and remove any gars entry points where threads have been deleted. This is primarily for those that experienced the above fixes. The proceedure will also sync your terms and phrasegroups (though they shouldnt ever be out of sync!) The url is admincp/gars_admin.php?do=cleangars
Known issues:

GARS entries are currently not deleted when a thread is deleted. Im working on this, however there seems to be many locations for catching deletion code so its slow going. Its not really any kind of showstopper anyway (especially with the above cleangars command, that will clean it up if you really need it).


When upgrading, just download the latest package and replace the following files (you do not need to re-import the product.xml):
  • admincp/gars_admin.php
  • geek/gars/includes/gars_class_core.php
  • geek/gars/includes/gars_class_admin.php
  • geek/gars/mods/featured.php
  • geek/gars/mods/top.php
