I'm not even able to edit them individually, the image doesn't save - I thought it was a confirmed bug - I'll have a look at the tracker.

Your cold one; nJoy.

any chance to add support for other alphabets, too? I, for one, only have Russian speaking users and they would hardly ever post entries in latin charset.

hmmm. I was wondering the easiest way of doing this but Im not sure how to go about it YET.
In GAL 5.0, I let the admin define - but I dont think this would work as easily.

Let me ponder Greps

If you were to strip down the essentials of GARS, it:
  • Adds the ability to override templates on a forum by forum basis
  • Adds the ability to override phrases on a forum by forum basis
  • Adds the ability to create custom fields (like user profile fields) and control them on a forum by forum basis
  • Adds the ability to include modules in the layout.
I can see why modules aren't that big of a deal to the vB core, however the first 3 key's could easily be implemented in the core product and open the door to a huge paradigm shift with how users set up their forums.
I agree. The ability to customize the templates (within one Style) and add custom fields that displays in the postbits is definitely a wanted feature by many, including myself. In order to achieve these, before GARS, I had to hack into vB's core PHP files and often dragged out additional PHP files. It worked but it was a pain and it wasn't pretty.

You've actually tapped into what I've been doing with your product; the ability to fully customize every forum, within one Style. That alone seems to be somewhat of an Easter Egg which I've found to be a blessing. Thanks The Geek, again, and I'm just to let you know I'm having fun hacking up your work.

I have just uploaded a new product xml into the RC2 package. This addresses the db error that can occur with viewing, adding or editing a custom field.
