No idea where you are getting this. This extension doesn't have anywhere within it a check for a "correct username".

The link that is displayed isn't supposed to be overwritten by this extension.

OK, I understand Rich but...
if the link is not supposed to be overwritten by this extension then , when user click on this link, he presented by the following message

"The board administrator contact page has been disabled."

because by enabling this extension, the default phpbb contact page automatically disabled and admin has to enable it in order to get this link in working order.

i think that this link should also be over written by this extension and phpbb default contact page should be permanently disabled everywhere on the board.

As the extension description itself says : "It also overrides the default contact admin link found on the forum."

whats your say. ??

Please check your server's error logs to see what the problem maybe. I just made those edits to my test forum and they work fine.
