What was the exact error ??

This version is compatible with both vB3.6.8 and vB3.7 (developped under 3.6.7 ).

I don't understand which problem you could have had during install everyone got it working
I'm simply upgrading and had a error during the proces.
After that I wasnt able to get access.

The error that I have

it appears that the maxosx directory is causing the problems with the zip file for windows users. or at least that's what it seems to be. I can unzip 1.2 with no issues, but 2.0 is still giving me problems

You have forgot to send a screenshot with all lines expanded (smilies and editor).

This error is strange the query doesn't seem wrong.

I don't understand why such an error would appear especially if you were doing an upgrade.

Did you do anything wrong ?

Because mainly users are not from my timezone

Btw you know the remaining bugs are not that enormous compared to other software

Hey vBDev,

Are you going to release a fix for the color selection? I am awaiting this fix before I launch my site.

Cheers

Yes I know but this is an issue I didn't encountered during my tests so that's hard to know

Really appreciate all the work you do, mate. There are very few mod authors out there that stick with their mods 100%. Well done!

BTW - I have voted for you in the MoTM Poll

I was a little bit to fast I gues.

Glad I have a back-up, board is up again.

Keep up the good work!

I guess I lost contact with the SQL server during install.

That's the only thing I can imagine.
