You need to update your UMIL as it is requesting the latest version during installation!!

looks cool, will try it out

EDIT:

suggestion:

I made a test info box, and it says this:

Posted: 1 minute ago Displays Untill: 1 minute ago

I suggest the "Displays Untill: 1 minute ago" be removed (also, there is a typo - untill should be until) if there is no expiration date.

That is only visible to the admin i think as when i logged in with my test user, it was shown as it appears in the demo.

Looks Great.

Waiting for RC. Thanks

Edit: 26/2/12

This MOD crash with bb codes. Unable to Send and read PM.
Getting error:
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class bbcode in /home/.../public_html/includes/bbcode.php on line 660
I have uninstalled the MOD. and removed all the copied files manually. After that PM Send & Receive works us usual.

I really need this MOD to work perfectly.

Thanks,

Hi Stever!!

Can't get the timer to work properly. I set it but after time was up, item still displayed, even after two days.

Love the mod though.

How about a purge function in the future? Instead of deleting them all one by one. AND a purge attribute that can be set in the ACP (similar to mChat). Only allow xxx in the archive.

Hope to see you up and running soon bucko.

Ooopsie.
