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.

still i need further advice, i've everything in the install.txt correctly but i have still have some problem:
- after finishing the instalation, is there any changes on the forum home?
- how do i access the groups beside entering www.domain.com/vbulletin/groups ?
- if i access that URL, i have an error that identify me doesn't have permissions to access that page, what permissions is this?

Thanks
1. there are none.

2. you'd need to set up a link. i never done so because i didn't know whether users would want a link on their navbar as a subsidary of the forums or in the site navigation.

3. have you set your usergroup permissions?

I would suggest editing your header template and appending the links to '../$vboptions[forumhome].php' instead of just '$vboptions[forumhome].php'

Sorry if this has been asked before, but how does each specific group specify their own custom image? (by uploading or linking) Instead of grps_mygroups_noimage.gif
