I can do the forum/usergroup permission thing, but I'll wait to hear from the original author of this plugin.

Wow!

This looks like a pretty decent and useful addition.
I'd like to caution my friends here that it can also cause you some trouble. If you've promised the users on your site even a wee bit of privacy and they see their name in someone's post.. they could wonder how, that person, knew who they were. Many webmasters won't stop at the "You" thing and go for things like, "address, email, etc... " and if those things have been private in the past... whoosh! - It could get ugly.

I remember the fights that used to start back in the old BBS days when someone would read a post that said something like , "BILL has a BIG NOSE".. Everyone who read that, didn't understand what was happening and many of them took offense and began blasting back at the original poster.. Great for a Flame board, but lots of webmasters don't allow flaming on their site...

So, now where's that Install switch again... ? Just tossing in a caution

Just installed it and hope to create mass confusion. The email addition is a nice touch.

Edward S - good point about possible abuse. To counteract this I did a find and replace on 'you' in Hambil's XML page and replaced it with a long nonsensical word so no-one else can use it except me.

Funny thing, Hambil! I installed your last version of the product, but instead of showing up the reader's username, it allways shows the writer's name ... Any Idea about that?
Great addition, though

Did you look at it through another users account, or your own?

Great hack. I've replaced the 'username' field with my 'real name' userfield, so it displays the user's real name instead of their username.

I'm testing it out a little now. Thanks for great hack!

*clicks install*

EDIT: It works great. I've added the userfield conditional to the plugin, so that if a member has no 'real name' listed in the respective userfield, it displays the 'username', so you'll never get a blank.

actually, I''m seeing the exact opposite. when you are quoting someone, it shows the actual [ you ] code, but once they post it, it works just like it does normally, even in the quoted text..

We had an absolute blast with this on my board - I didn't tell anyone about it, just put it into effect. It took the first person 40+ posts to get it, and the last person to get it was after post #170 or so - my fiance thought I turned the whole board against her, it almost wrecked our relationship. Flippin awesome!!!! I can't say Ive had this much fun with anything since I discovered vaseline at age..errr... sorry bout that, nevermind.
