Since categories behave like forums, you follow the same steps in the readme. Only instead of choosing "Edit Forum" next to the forum name, you choose "Edit Forum" next to the category. The template changes are teh same regardless. Hopefully that makes sense to you.

After you click "Edit Forum" (under Forum Manager in the Admin CP), you will see the option to enter the information towards the bottom of the forum options.

I've attached a couple screenshots showing what I'm talking about. Hopefully that helps you guys out.

I have a small error that happens when people click on the banners. Here's the error:

Database error in vBulletin 3.5.1:
Invalid SQL:
INSERT INTO `vBSponsors` ( `id` , `sponsor_name` , `forum`, `date` ) VALUES ( '', 'Toyotaworld.com', 'Engine & Drivetrain', '1135206904');
MySQL Error : Duplicate entry '0' for key 1

Eventually I would like to add that feature. Once I tackle the admin stats, this will be next.

Problem resolved. That was an oversight on my part. Download the latest version and you should be set.

Anyone who has installed/downloaded this should download the latest version (always posted here).
