is wierd what happened, i installed this hack and everything went fine, untill i try to open a new thread in firefox, my editor was not working at all. The problem surprisingly wasnt with IE.

Any suggestion?

Ps: i tried to add the optional to the newthread template, but when i tried to open a new thread i couldnt pass the "Continue >>>" button, it just stuck, i press on it, i press enter, but nothing was working

No problem with FF here.

Be sure you have enabled AJAX on your forums and javascript works properly in your browser.

Nice Hack. Here are some improvements you might want to consider:
- Enable-Setting removed as one could just disable the product => less plugin code
- Phrases used instead of settings
- Settinggroup deleted and two settings moved to posting settings
- Usergroup Selection improved
- global_start Plugin deleted as it is not necessary
- two Templates deleted

This is old... and it really needs update.

I agree for the templates and global_start.
About settings - I like to have it separate from standard vB options.

I'll update this when I have some time. Thanks Andreas.
