should help you. Disabling an extension is a one minute job, if that doesn't fix your problem you can re-enable it or leave it disabled until the issue is sorted out.
Well, after talking to the author...who said this problem wouldn't be fixed til the "next version", and "not anytime soon"...I took your advice and disabled Simple mentions.
Funny thing happened, however--I disabled it fine. But then when I tried to get back into my forum, all I got was a white screen.
Eventually, on the advice of a third party I manually cleared the cache on the server. That worked (for anyone with similar problems) and I believe my next step is to delete the extension altogether.
But it is a lesson...to me, at any rate...not to take author-descriptions at face value. And I should have been wary anyway, as the extension was apparently released on the 14th of May and 5 days later this problem was reported to the author for the first time. But the fix "won't be anytime soon."
Honestly...I cannot imagine how this extension can be said to be 3.2 compatible. But I'm not an expert, so what do I know? Having been released so recently, I guess that's all it can be compatible with.
Thanks again for your help...everyone.
