Woha - I'm very sorry to say that I haven't checked this thread for a long time...
There was VERY little respondance to it in the first weeks since I had posted this, and then I thought this one burried among the other posts... Sorry!
Anyway, I hope you all found answers to your problems. I know some of you have notified me via email or my website. Most of what has been discussed here has already been added/corrected - get it at www.kohl-net.de
For those of you who do not want to take the time to implement this MOD, you can find a pre-modded version there.
Also, I have the german language modifications available.
I know this sounds like a lot of work, but there is no other way that I know of to add this MOD to existing phpBB installations (I don't know how to make a patch file to do all that
There are already several people using this MOD online and I have submitted the MOD to the phpBB group (a week ago). They will probably take a little time before they act - but hopefully not too long.
I'll be sure to watch this thread again, from now on!
