I'm not sure if this is written in your (Alfa1) functionality list, is possible to add :

1) Users/Members can only rate once
OR
2) Set usergroup permissions so that a we can set a limit on how of times a usergroup can rate

I think regular users rating more than once could cause possible biased ratings on product and place reviews. What does everyone else think?

Users should only be able to rate once, or if they are allowed to change their vote, then at least their vote should be counted once. But I think that is logical. It makes no sense to allow users to vote multiple times.

It has been 2 months since your ACS beta 2 was released. I'm not seeing any activity in your tracker since January. Is this project aborted or do you have plans for a Gold release in the near future?
I'm running out of time due to financially pressing issues and am considering to hire developers to commence on this project, if there is no sight on a solution to the feature list in post 1.
Please be so kind to keep us up to date.

Seems he is doing this part time. Sadly this all takes ages for a final mature product...
And the coder I hired to convert GARS has delivered only one screenshot in 4 months.
It looks like we need to stay forever on 3.8.7

I am currently working in Beta 3 version, which is planned to be the last version before gold release.
For this reason a lot of new features were added, specially paid features like pay to publish, pay to stick, pay to bump, pay for new fields and pay for a different style for listing.

GARS importer is done and will be released with ACS Beta 3.

It would be nice to have working product. IMO you should first make everything works with existing features and then add more. Please let us know when can we expect beta 3.

Agree, priority should be a full working basic product and complete instruction instead of a 1000 feature pocketknife all in never finished program.

There already are basic products available: either as TedS his Product Review Forums or as the working beta 2 of Advanced Content System. What sets ACS apart from the rest is its advanced feature set.
Commercial features are vital needs for more than a few admins, because these functions will pay their bills. In my communication with various people to chart their functionality needs, commercial functionality comes up again and again. ACS providing such functions in beta 3 makes a world of difference.
Please do not see it as superfluous bloat, because its not.

Im aware that its better for author to write code 1 time and fix bugs than rewrite it every time when he try to add new feature, but i would give much for more informations about progress.

I just stumbled on Edirectory.com 's software, it seems nice from a first glance but, I don't see any listing about vbulletin integration. If this was possible and you could customize a hosted solution it might be promising for me since the hosted version was $99/mo.

Sure, there are basic products available.
But, TedS product isn't right for my needs and ACS beta 2 isn't working for me, 3 months after purchase.
Do you have it working on your site alfa?
So, that's the reason why I said to make the product first basic and working.
Makes no sense to me to add thousand of features if the final working result isn't foreseeable.

man, so disappointing waiting so long. I'm with Ramsesx. Something simple that works would be great.

Teds is right on but lacks the ability to add new products via the Vbulletin 4 Editor. I can't understand that at all. The XML import is great for those who actually get company data via XML feeds for products but in my line of business, no manufacturer lists their product in a XML, so I have to copy paste product info one by one and the editor makes this much simplier. With Teds system, you have to grab all the HTML and screw around with that.

If I use the vbulletin Editor, I can copy past hundreds in a day, no problem ( images and tables etc, just like the product website displays !) . Awesome this way!

BUT WITH With Teds, I have to input all the html code via the CP which totally sucks. Its so slow and useless. Its focused on their agenda which is part of their business. I'm interested in boutique products and reviews. Not importing thousands of amazon type reviews in hundreds of categories. Way overkill.
Again, Teds XML import is great in their eyes , wonderful for importing thousands of products ( ONLY AVAILABLE in XML) but useless for simple solutions and the boutique product reviews.

If someone improved Teds, allowing the added ability to CREATE PRODUCTS with a vb style editor via the CPadmin or via the forums, Teds would be perfect for thousands of vbulletin websites!

Something simple, more personal that works. I would gladly pay for that.

So we need to google GARS only to find a site with dated info and a goofy download link requesting money for what?

For those familiar with your GARS, this may be a no brainer but for those not, is it ready for a production site? From my perspective, GARS appears to be dated and unclear if it is ready?

Anyone care to enlighten the unfamiliar, I'm interested in something that works for vb4. Out of all the hype here, It appears Adrian is the real deal.

Cheers!
