Default GARS Beta 2 out!

Just updated the GARS package in the downloads section with GARS Beta 2. This beta addresses most known issues though there are still a few remaining (and a few more features to add).

Fixed:
  • Missing avatar when no header image is specified
  • GARS Threadbit getting wacked out with some displays
  • FORUMDISPLAY type not saving.
  • Missing GARS_saved_module phrase
  • Reputation link now added to 'tools' module.
  • FORUMDIAPLY and SHOWTHREAD templates not hooked in (they are now - but there are not any 'new' templates to put into place)
Other stuff
  • Streamlined a few plug ins
  • Added new module (userinfo).
  • Tweaked a couple templates
Known issues still
  • Cant post as another user.
  • GAL entries not plugged in.
TO upgrade from a previous version, download the latest package, upload all files from the upload folder (replacing existing files). Finally import the product-gars.xml file.

Please note that some plug ins have been removed. Double check you dont have any orphaned plugins. If so, delete them (their product will say vBulletin however the name will be GARS something or other).
Make sure your templates are reverted if you tweaked any.

Yea, I just noticed that in the other thread you posted on. I cant seem to confirm this so Im obviously missing something. Can you get me admin access with stype access? (just raise a support ticket or PM me)

Mucho appreciated

Some good news to mention :

The issues I had with header images not showing on forumdisplay seem to be resolved, as are the html issues with a few random threads. As for the whole missing avatars issue, I don't see the links to them as I did before (I use firefox, so missing images would appear as "Unimatrix Prime's Avatar"), so I now see a black verticle bar about 30 pixels high. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but I'm just wondering if that's supposed to be like that

Lastly, the issue with the array_merge error that I noted before still seems to exist. It doesn't seem to affect anything, but I assume that GARS and PHP5 aren't 100% compatible yet

Hey Sketch - ya... THe amount of work to back port this would be astronomical! THe only 3.0x version Ill be offering here is GeekMart (Primarily as it started in 3.0x however once it goes gold Ill most likely stop supporting future 3.0x development to focus only on 3.5x).
