Question Questions before buying

Hello guys,

My site is Oracle Forum. I have been really impressed by the GARS product and I am considering buying it. However, before buying I have a few questions.

1. I am planning to upgrade to VB 3.8.1, will GARS work perfectly with 3.8.1

2. I am also going to buy VBSEO (ya I am in a spending mood!), does GARS work with VBSEO?

3. Does GARS have a module for VBadvanced CMPS like the News module? yes I saw in a thread that there was one, but it seems to require a lot of manual edits. Will it work with 3.8.1 and CMPS 3.0.1?

Thanks for the support guys, and sorry if the questions seems are redundant but i need some reassurane

Regards

The support is just fine here, you may experience faster support on other sites, but it is better with quality support than very fast support. In any case, most questions are answered with 1-2 days.

GARS is a rocksolid script with tons of features and you only cheat youself not buying. I am not using the news module myself, but there should be no conflict with GARS and and 3.8.1

hey henrik thanks for replying,

I have a couple more questions

1. VB 4 would be coming in a few months now. Will GARS be updated for VB 4?

2. Is GARS a single developer project? I ask this because, single developer projects tend to remain couple of versions behind because of time-constraints on the part of the developer.

Thanks for answering

1) Yes, GARS works with vB 3.8.1 but I cannot quantify that with "perfectly" as you might have some add-on that conflicts with GARS, there might be a yet unknown bug, you might think a feature doesn't do what you think it should do, etcetera.

2) There is this thread that comes to mind. Nothing else comes to mind ATM but do a search for vBSEO on this site just in case I'm not recalling something.

3) No, there is only this one, which wold require you to read through the thread to get it operational on your site.

4) This is impossible to say without seeing the vB 4 code, and I won't see the vB 4 code until after it is released.

5) Yes, and developers usually don't see the new vB code until you do so there is no way to be ahead of the game.

Sorry if u misunderstood me, i didn't mean it offensively

Of course you can't see the VB 4 code before it's released. I was just asking whether you do plan to upgrade it for VB 4 or not after it's released.

No offense taken, my answers are just matter of fact is all. Apologies if my answers seemed otherwise. Regrading vB4, it depends on what gets changed in vB4, what would need to get changed in GARS, whether it would be reasonably doable, etcetera, so this cannot be answered until vB4 is released.

vB4 will not be a complete rewrite according to devs and forum , thread functions will not be updated in vB4 . Thats why i think Gars will work with vB 4 99% without any change
