Question

That is a very nice Mod. I just installed it on my vB4.0.3. I can change the Authors Name, but from the pictures posted above, I can't see any Publishing Options such as when it was posted etc. to change that.

What did I miss ?

The picture with the Publishing Options is from the CMS.

I think that I will wait for a version that does not require template edits. I have used such a hack in the past but for the little that I would use it, I will just repost and delete.

Thanks for the effort!

I actually *prefer* the template-edits. No matter how you do it you have to add *something* to regular vB.

There are mods which inject their code into existing templates and thus they require no template-edits. However such injections are not handled on a vB update at all, the upgrade/diff system doesn't even see them. So they might simply stop working on a new version 'cos the injection code doesn't find its target anymore.

With template edits, the regular diff system will pick up problems. Easier.
