Geek Article and Review System GARS is the mega popular system for turning forums into articles, tutorials, or even reviews.

This is an HTML example. Isn't it just wonderful?!?!

A robust GARS module for CMPS would be highly configurable, in fact, I see a "set" of modules/templates:

Featured Article

A left/right column module that would show article title, byline, and synopsis. It would feature a SINGLE article/review/tutorial, selectable by the admin, or allowed to be random.

Articles Directory

A complete, dynamic list of all Articles. The module would show a set number, scroll down to see them all. Article Title, Byline, Synopsis. Unlike News, where each news item gets its own panel, this would be a single panel. Or, there could be a panel per article type...

Most Popular Articles

A left/right module, listing X number of the top-rated articles.

Article Search

Of course, site search will work too, but a specific search that could offer search by Category or Author would be nice.

Featured Author

This would be a new article type: INTERVIEW, which would work like "Featured Article", but would feature an "interview" with one of the site's popular article/review/tut authors. (To be clear, I'm suggesting both a new Article TYPE, the INTERVIEW, in the core GARS product, and a corresponding CMPS module to feature a particular interview.)

The nice thing is that all of these could be collected together on a unique CMPS page, to really focus attention on the Article side of your site/forum.

I would expect this to all be controlled by a single PHP program, and to have its own complete set of templates.
