Welcome ladies and gentleman, this is the release thread for GRPS, an interactive groups commune. I hope you enjoy this release and i sincerely hope it provides everything to your community in which you're looking for.

What is it?
It's a groups commune. The original idea is that forums with lots and lots of forums on the front-page suck, as a result i thought most of the conversation was rather obscure in regards to what the forums were trying to achieve, so it'd be nice to have that all going on elsewhere, not detracting away from the content and stopping your front-page from looking like a car crash.

Possible bug: Some topics in groups use a vbulletin style which is a custom style for a specific forum (uses Override Users' Style Choice option) and isn't allowed in user style choices. How can I fix it?

ps: Is there a plugin available that allows us to display user's groups in memberinfo instead of usercp?

not by default threads shouldn't.

I'm not really sure what to tell you as i don't want to give an ETA. i currently have one or two things where i'm using place holder technology so i'm not sure how long it will take to ge them right. but in terms of PHP and HTML/CSS. i'm around 50% done. i reckon that if i didn't lose my pc i would be preparing for beta testing around now.

hopefully that gives an answer to your question without committing myself to a timeline.

Sabret, img vbcode doesn't seem to work properly within the thread. Instead of displaying the image, it shows the URI of the image file.

Ps: Only the groups that were created before the GRPS upgrade are using that style.

It uses the default style for groups only when I turn off Override Users' Style Choice for that forum on my board. I'd greatly appreciate if you could provide a fix for this since GRPS is calling styles that are exlclusive for only one forum and user's can't select or overide that style on the board (main vb forum).

I can PM you the URI's of the group viewthread pages if you'd like me to.

Another minor bug - when you are posting, the breadcrumb at the top for the topic link doesn't work. It's missing the group number in the URL.
