Default Look like default vB forumdisplay, but with filter at top?

I'm working on a "Dining" forum that involves seven adjacent cities here in southeastern Virginia. All i want to do is have the normal forumdisplay from vB, but with a filter at the top so people can select which city they want to see posts/reviews from. I want the avatars showing, last post, etc.

basically, I want it to look exactly like the default VB, but with one custom field (the city) and a filter at the top of forumdisplay to choose the city.

When I GARS the forum, all of those old familiar vB things go away. How can I have it look the same as vB, but with the city filter at the top?

I know this is a very simple application of GARS, but that's where I'm starting, until I get more familiar with the system. Any help appreciated!

Easy to do

Just edit the types template set and change GARS_threadbit to threadbit and GARS_threadbit_deleted to threadbit_deleted.

You may also need to change the forumdisplay to accomidate the column changes. In other words, you want a forumdisplay template that is a copy of the standard one, but accomidates the module placement.

HTHs!

Perfect! Thanks so much. I'm finallly starting to understand the depth of this product!

Another question: Id really like peoples' avatars to show up in "showthread" as well. Basically, I just want it to look like VB throughout, but with the filters available in forumdisplay (you already solved that one for me), and with the custom fields at the top of "showthread." In my case, the city that the post relates to. I hope this makes sense.

You just need to copy vbs postbit and then add the $post[gars_modpositionx] variables where you want the modules to appear. I would play around with those to get ehat youre after.

HTHs!
