I had the mod installed and working fine for most users, but Mac users had problems (described above.)
I did not use EasyMod; I was not aware of it. I'll certainly try it on my test forum and see if it works.
Suggestions to newbies which will solve 90% of your MOD heartaches: install phpbb twice on your site, in different directories. Try new mods and templates in your tester before you employ them on the live forum. You can use the same database for both installations, provided your mods do not affect the database schema. If you don't want your test posts to show, create a hidden forum with Admin-only access. A hidden forum is also a good place to "move" "deleted" posts, if you want to save the post but make it look as if it's been deleted.
Always back up files and keep them in a safe place until you are satisfied with the results of your mods. Always be able to "step back" to stable versions of your forum files.
