I did try to answer your post last night, soon after my reply to bper. The phpBB server wasen't very cooperative though and kept timing out, so I decided to do the same.

In my ACP i can see the option to enable it (by default on mine its set to NO which is worrying as i read by default it is set to YES). I have enabled the MOD and submitted that but on return to the configuration page, its back to disabled.
The most common explanation for this behavior is when the database update is omitted. If you are absolutely sure that the required database update was done and was successful, then aside a conflict with another MOD, I'm not sure what else might be causing this. There's also the fact that when you switched to the "subSilver" style, you get the same behavior, which points to a common cause. There are 3 files affected by the ACP option, aside the database update:
1 ] admin/admin_board.php
2 ] language/lang_english/lang_admin.php
3 ] templates/yourTemplate/admin/board_config_body.tpl
When not using the "subSilver" style as default, then you have to make sure that the edits required by User Shield for the following 3 files are repeated also for your default template:
1 ] templates/yourTemplate/index_body.tpl --> 3 actions to integrate
2 ] templates/yourTemplate/memberlist_body.tpl --> 4 actions to integrate
3 ] templates/yourTemplate/admin/board_config_body.tpl --> 1 action to integrate
If you would like to review the installation steps, you can refer to this recent reply in this thread (if need be):
- How do I install User Shield
Conclusion... I would triple check the edits affecting the first 3 mentionned files, and then triple check the required edits affecting the second 3 mentionned files which are specific to your non-subSilver default style. If you are still faced with the same problem, have you installed any other MODs recently that may have modified files that User Shields also modifies?

Thanks you for the kind words and let me know about the above.
