Default Filter This!

Please note that this tutorial pertains to GARS 2.1.1 and GARS 2.1.2
Earlier versions will not have the filter module and later versions may be slightly different (but how the hell do I know...

Geek,

I know this might sound like a dumb question, but maybe I'm missing something and I'm a bit lazy to do a upgrade right now and find out for myself.. I'm using GARS v2.1.1 and noticed a few changes in your tutorial screenshots , but I went ahead and followed it anyways, but I couldn't get the filter custom field to show. Is this new feature only working on the lastest release of v2.1.2?

Thanks!

Yes, it don't even appear on forumdisplay, but if I added to showthread it appears with the correct filter that I selected while creating the thread.

hmmm... It sounds like it is a corrupt file cache.

I assume you are using the 'cache settings' options. If so, delete all .php files from geek/gars/cache and its subfolders. Then go into your gars settings page and click save to rebuild your cache. Let me know if it helps.

Setting up the module

You need to add the filter module to your module set in order for it to appear. It is important to note that the filter module only works on forumdisplay pages so don't add it to the showthread page!
Stupid of my part, I totally missed that FILTER Module and added it as a custom field, thats why it was not appearing, and the screenshots looked a bit different.

sorry!

You can currently only filter by 1 select field at a time.
Any idea when we might see multiple filter options?

<cough>with AJAX updates?</cough>

Thanks!

no, not yet. I implimented it as it is as many were asking for the basic functionality. I will need to rethink the code to allow for multiple options which is tough because it requires more creative javascript (because its in a nested table).

Not sure how ajax would work with this?
