I use my released mods daily, if I find an issue with them or add features for myself I will release updates. If there are significant bugs or simple feature requests I will do my best to release fixes. Some of my mods rely on fetching data from 3rd party websites, due to the unreliable results, my mods will require users to troubleshoot for themselves if they find the addon is not working for them specifically. I am offering my personal mods that work ok for me for you to use, I am sorry I do not have time to troubleshoot many user specific issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Interesting, I will look into this.

*Edit: I am not sure what is causing this, the html that should be inserted into your postbit is nothing like what my templates look like.

Do you have some mod that changes the templates or anything?

Thank you

Just uploaded v1.10, it now displays the links on the users profile and you can optionally change the display so it looks a little less cluttered.

I installed without any errors in the installation. However when I look at my forums all the threads and posts aren't showing. I created the profile fields and inserted the code for the postbits. I'm not sure what else to do, if I disable gWoWChar, all the threads will show.

Memorex, do you have an edited postbit? Do you have a link to your site?

I'm having the same problem with just text being outputted. Nothing shows up on my user posts, just in the profiles.

I used a template I bought and then slightly modded.
