Default vba CMPS GARS block

This is just a quick vba Module I threw together to try and please the 'Damnit - come up with vba support' people.

This will create 3 different layouts depending on the modules...

Not sure what they are using to create that but one idea would be to use the top module that comes with GARS to produce blocks like on this page and edit the top module to also display thumbnails.

Just a heads up...

I was getting an error "Content Encoding Error" in Firefox when loading my vBA home page, and I fixed this error by disabling gzip compression under "Cookies and HTTP Header Options" under the main vBulletin settings.

Not sure if there is another way around this or not. Other than that little snafu this works great with the updated PHP file a couple pages back.

I wish someone would update this module so as to not misslead people into buying a license with the intent of using it with vB and vBadvanced. The module doesn't work with v3.8x and vB4 so don't waist your time.

It is fully recognised that GARS itself has not been upgraded to vB4 yet, a decision is pending.
As for working with vB3.8.x it works perfectly, I have it running on a couple of my sites quite satisfactorily.

Hmmm, I just tested it with a fresh copy of vBa 3.2.2 and vB 3.8.4 and all I'm getting are module titles out of it(no content). I'm assuming the MOD doesn't work out of the box.

UPDATE...
Okay I copy and pasted some code(later in this thread), then mucked around the settings... "would been nice to indicate to check (Initialize BB Code Parser)" prior to toggling the module.

Anyways... long story short, I got it echo'ing articles.
So I guess it works.

Any chance someone could clean this thread up to help others walk the straight and narrow? I really like GARS, but I could see alot of people walking away from this based on the feeling that the module and addon are no longer being maintained(pitty).

Thanks for a great HACK btw.

Give me forty eight hours and I'll gather all snippets and latest information then create a new thread.
I'm in the middle of upgrading one of my sites from vB 4.0.3(alpha) to vB 3.8.x stable so when that's completed I'll get to this.

Check out THIS post for an updated version
