Hi,

Great hack, working well except for one glitch no one else seems to have, so I probably screwed up somewhere, but for the life of me can't figure it out.

When you click on the sponsors image, it goes to a redirect page, BUT the page says:

----------------------
Redirecting...

Can't find phrase ''

If your browser etc...
Proceed button
------------------------

and then redirects just fine.

err, what phrase? It works, but this looks bad!

any ideas?

Thanks, Grant

Hello!

Thumbs up Great hack! Easy upload! Highly recomended!

Hello there,

Great work on this hack. So easy to up load this hack.

Question:
1. I would like to show the sponsered link on the subforum's linked page. Meaning when they click the main forum sub forum it goes to a sub forum page and there is no link there. How can I ad this link to the page that the sub forum is linked to?

2. When I have a image in the forum title the sponser will not show up there. That is fine for me as long as I can have the image show in the page it links to.

Thanks again for a great ad-on. and have a great day!

This would be absolutely perfect if I could turn it off for certain usergroups (my paid members). If that was possible, I'd definitely install asap!
