Open the GARS XML product file. Look for <form blah blah blah> tags. Afterwards add the following line:
Code:
<input type="hidden" name="securitytoken" value="$bbuserinfo[securitytoken]" />
Keep track of what templates you edit (as seen by <template name="GARS_template_name_here" blah blah blah> in the GARS XML product file). Via the ACP revert those GARS templates if changed. Reimport the GARS XML product file via the ACP (do not uninstall, do allow overwrite). Done.

As soon as I get back to my work station, I'll update the GARS XML product file, and then post when done. Note that it'll be several hours before I am back. If you are not able to wait, just do as instructed above.

Reminder...

Working on it, was tired last night and messed up by edited the wrong version, so need to finish editing the correct version. Moral to self: don't code when too tired.

As to links, no, you just need to re-import the add-on's XML for phrases and templates only via the GARS import/export option.

Hi Morgan!

Hate to bug you, but any ETA on the rewrite of this??? I just installed some new 3.7 boards and I need a review capability on some of the forums, but I'm a bit afraid to try to make the changes myself

Thanks so much!!!
