i just wonder why it is encrypted ??
seems to be popular at the moment!

Is this the way Geek is going, to encrypt all files ?

If yes what a pitty!!

Yes i know that you can dl nullified scripts, yes i know that you sure can find the addons somewhere on a warez site, but you punish the honest buyers!

The man writes some star stuff and in my (humble) opinion has every right to protect his considerable investment.
I have absolutely nothing against the encryption.

why do you think that the community for vb and phpbb is so big ?
and there are so many cool addons ?

thats why it is worth to buy a vb license

maybe the licence part of the geek stuff can be encrypted, but why the full source?
well thats my opinion

But it's not the whole source, just admin code (oh poo, hope I haven't said too much)
Templates etc. are still fully configurable.
Yes there are many good hacks and powerful add-ons, virtually all of them free! but very few reach the quality and good support that we find here.

Anyone receive the following error when trying to import GARS in vb?

XML Error: not well-formed (invalid token) at Line 1

I can't figure out why that error is coming up, and because of it I cannot import the new GARS 2.0

Make sure when you load it like it is in the site options on your local machine to call the scripts from (example: http://localhost/foldertoforum not 127.0.01.)

My site currently looks like this using GARS: http://avforum.com

...and although the system is excellent "back office", I would love for my visitors to also experience the GARS mod as a journalistic expansion at the moment they enter the site!

I would prefer to be able to choose 3-5 featured articles/tests etc. for top exposures with only images and heading, and show a defined amount of other articles/tests etc. chronologically, like for example www.Hardware.no.

Any change such a mod or something simimal may be available for vBadvanced soon?
I love the idea's that have gone into GARS 2 however I am unsure if to install because of vba.
Does GARS2 have a vba module?

What I have done is to disable the vBA left column on all pages and modified THIS hack. You can see it at work HERE, though it's not a finished work.
If you want, I can post the modified version here, though I would have to get the permission from the author first.
