FAQ:
Why it doesn't check the newest version on each load?
Because it would take to long until the page would load. And I'm to lazy to make an async check (Too much to change ...).

It shows an error with the hack X. Can you correct this?
No, that is a fault of the hack author. He/She made an error in the version check url. My hacl has only an error if the build in version check show something different then mine (that in the drop down box ...).

Any ideas what to do?

Thanks for your quick reply

I've reinstalled it quite a few times.

What happens, immediately after installing, I get that message as soon as the Plugin Manager page refreshes....right after the last plugin is displayed.

I'm really at a loss on this one.

No Sir,

Here's that part of my config.php:

It's never been touched.
