Special breaks that don't split the page but add anchors so that when the user clicks on the title the page scrolls to that piece of text, but wthout having many pages. Like wikipedia
I think it would be extremely useful as some articles can't be cut down into pages as they consist of many small separate paragraphs (eg one I'm currently writing: first aids for cats)

The ability to align modules right to left would be very helpful.

Also, the use of custom fields REQUIRES the ability to display these values "unserialized" or whatever in the threadbit, forumhome, etc, to create listings that use these values.

The possibilities are nearly endless if this is possible.

Align modules is pretty easy to do with a template edit though I guess I can look into an option setting?

The values in 2.0 will not be serilaized and can be used 'as is' out of the container.

Michelle - do you have an example of what you mean? i.e. a url?

2.0 also has numerous performance tweaks. In fact, I am really freaking chuffedwith it so far. You guys are going to love it

If I understand what you are asking, you can accomplish this with a custom bbcode of your own.

This is what I use on my board:

Title: Anchor Tag

Tag: anchor

Replacement: <a name="{param}"></a>

Example: [anchor]example[/anchor]

Description: Creates an anchor tag within a page that can be linked to.


Use {option}: No



You would then place anchors within a page like this:

[anchor]name_of_my_anchor[/anchor]

You would link to the anchor location using something like this:

http://www.domain.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1000#name_of_my_anchor


If you want a custom block with a table-of-contents-type list of the page anchors then that shouldn't be too difficult (especially with GARS 2.0 from what it sounds like) I usually just put a list of important sections at the top of the page with links to the appropriate anchors though.

Oh, before I forget it, geek could you integrate the show IP for admins into the GARS System?

Sure. Didnt realise they werent there. Must be missing from the template. If youre pressed, just look into the template and put it in there until 2.0

WAR - Thats a good way of doing it.

Is this issue solved in this next release?

Also I recently found a little issue regarding user ratings. Even when the user doesn't vote the comment shows the rating. And I don't think the allow n/a option is working on my installation.

Which issue hell?

Im adding an option to allow the user to 'opt out' of a review. There is a bug with n/a that has been sorted in next release.

Thanks
