It would be nice if you could create a "Mass Adding Phrase" :D

I got a makeshift now, where I manually set the phrase type and the product in the php, so everytime I submit I don't have to reselect 'Global' and 'product name '. But like I said, it's a make shift, but that saves me a lot of time.

You are on a roll, lately, Andreas. ;)

That's part of 'Developer Tools' which is currently only released in an early Beta stage @ vBulletin-Germany.org ;)

This ain't new stuff, I've been using it since ages.

Sorry to post here about a different hack, but I am not sure I am allowed to post in English on the German site.

That Developers Tool is simply great. I'd like to have one suggestion: Is there a way to echo on the screen the last phrase that you put in order to avoid duplicates? The phrase gets entered sooooo fast that you might forget that you just entered it

Looking forward to the developer tools release.

I meant you were on a roll for releases, lately. Just like the good 'ol days. ;)

go to vbulletin-germany.org and look at Andreas profile.
There is a wealth of useful hacks there, prompting me to the bookstore to buy a German 101

I love the install code builder :-)

man, you're releasing the one useful tool after the other. I thought you were a official vb developer, right? Than why don't they put these in vb as default features.

When clicking the 'Save & Release' button in IE 7, I get a corrupt ZIP. Seems to work fine in other browsers.
