Default GARS 2.0 RC2 released

Just uploaded RC2 to the download area.

GARS 2.0 IS PRE RELEASE SOFTWARE. It is bound to contain SOME bugs.

Whats new?
  • Alphabetical Bar for filtering forum entires by first letter (loads of requests for that)
  • Custom fields are phrased now
  • A new module: Authors Top (essentially a top module but showing the authors latest, most read or most active threads).
  • Fixed a conflict with vbaCMPS (Thanks Kirby)
  • Added a 'modonly' option to custom fields so that only moderators can alter the custom field
  • Squashed all confirmed bugs
  • Cleaned up some of the code to make it more lightweight
  • Progressed the phrasing quite a bit
  • Progressed vb3.6 support
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING UPGRADE STEPS

Once you upload all new files (overwriting your existing ones) AND you re-import your new gars-product.xml file you must then:
  1. Edit each type and click save to rebuild cache.
  2. Edit each Custom field you have in your Admincp and click save to rebuild its phrases
Make sure you revert your templates.

Whats left?

I'm about half way through phrasing and templating. Its pretty much bug killing/phrasing/documentation time.

** UPDATE **

I uploaded a new geek/gars/includes/gars_ignition.php into the RC2 package to address a couple typos.

If you downloaded before this post, re-download and replace the aforementioned file.

Thanks!

Ooh I missed this one! For some reason on the home page it shows this as OLD news in the archive in the bottom module - instead of new news in the news module at the top?

EDIT: Silly me... I was looking at recent threads lol . Thanks Geek!

Sam, can I skip RC1 to RC1.5 and just upgrade to this version?

@benj: Re-download GARS 2.0 RC2 and re-upload the gars_ignition.php file (in /geek/gars/includes). The Geek told us to do that and it fixed the error.
