You can edit the files anyway you like and update your script in this thread if you wish.

Also, I was thinking, instead of asking users to add website url, why not use bburl stored in database? I didnt test this yet, but you can try it out.

Nice! You should also update the mod version in the product file with the one in this thread (2.337) just so people dont get confused when they look at their products. Not that we'll be updating this hack any further, but just a good practice for future upgrades to your hacks.

Just before:

Add this for custom plugins and templates:

Hope this helps.

Not only is it in the scheduled tasks listing, but it there twice ??? I will delete one and see what happens, though that should not make a difference.

You might get a better Alexa rating if you get users to download and use the Alexa toolbar. I put this is my navbar template -
After
<!-- / PAGENAV POPUP -->
</if>
add
<div align="center">This web site is world ranked by <a href="http://www.alexa.com" target="_blank">Alexa</a> at position: {$vbulletin->alexarank}<br /><br /><a href="http://download.alexa.com/index.cgi"><img src="../banners/alexa_toolbar.gif" alt="Download Alexa Toolbar" border="0" /></a><br /><a href="http://download.alexa.com/index.cgi">Download Alexa toolbar</a></div>
