Great Mod.. Thanks alot..

Black Tiger 01 Feb 2009 01:07

Looks nice.
A pre-installation question... If I put the "Refering Sites: Items to show" to 0. Is this option disabled then? If not, is there a way to disable display of refering sites?
Will there also be an option to disable display of OS and browser, disable flags?
Not that I really need that at the moment, but this way it's more customizable for people who wish to customize it a little for which stats are shown.

Pressing any other option such as Resoultion/Refferes etc bring No data up.
Only General and Styling bring info up - the other linksshow nothing at all.
Its set in options to show to usergroups as well so its not that

Staff: 30 (8 admins, 4 s-mods, 18 mods)

useless since the Mod does not prove which UserIDs are double counted.

Correct was:

Staff: 19 (8 admins, 4 s-mods, 7 mods)

Thank you

Awesome plugin, installed! Possible you can add dots or commas after a large number? Like, 10000 will be 10.000 or 10,000.
