"Quite complicated..."
Sorry, I don't like it at all.
Very complicated with the levels and all.
This is really only for somebody who uses this feature extensively.
I recomment the xoops article manager instead.

"Alpha stage ?"
After adding arms to the xoops/modules directory the Admin tool only partially recognizes it. There is neither a logo for the arms module, nor does it have a title. Between the Install and the Info icons it says: [i]File not found[/] without specifying which one is missing.

Given the above and given the version number of 0.4 I believe this module is still in its Alpha stage. Which is a pitty, because I could put its four level hierarchy to good use.

"ArMS works Great!"
Just tried this module on a server with php set to run as cgi, suexec environment, and it works absolutely great.
Previous mentioned ills seem to be fixed, and the couple of small bugs still active are referenced. Any proficient php coder (which I am not) should be able to fix these in a snap.

I definitely recommend it to anyone needing a more extensive category tree to get the enduser where they want to go.

"ArMS Rocks"
A complicated content management block with a steep learning curve. Not perfect but the best thing out there for organizing large amounts of content.
