No - just install it (it takes two minutes) and you will see the options.

No - because I do not believe that you should change a user's settings withouth them knowing about it, and if they don't like what you have changed they will only change them back.

David, it works good!
I try to use it with this https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... istration/
It seems that your extension has priority before this above. I use it together.
It would be good to predefining settings in ACP by your extension, and allow new user to change it on registration form. So, this 'opt_in_out_e_mails_on_registration' allow only to on/off email from an admin and it doesn't work when your ext. is enabled. Maybe in next version You add additional column 'show/hide on registration form'?
Really great job David!

Hi David, I've prepared polish translation, but i can't add attachement here. Maybe on PM?
I have one problem - what is the difference between const 'SEND_PM' and 'USER_NOTIFY_PM'? I see only UCP->Edit notification options->Someone sends you a private message.
If You would, You can add presetting for 'Hide me online status'. This is in 'UCP->Global settings' too.

Great work making this extention, i've searched everywhere for this extention,
I do have one question, when i enter the back-end into you extention settings my HTTPS lock turns orange, how does that come?

I've tested firevox, goes from green to orange.
internet explorer keeps a lock, does nothing change
Chrome does also loses secure connection.

best regards Nienke
