Fantastic. I lost some threads after having to restore from a backup. I did not rebuild all the lost data, but this was great for the posts that I did recreate!
Works like a charm Andy !
Signed up, down/uploaded, implemented - worked like a CHARM! Perfect. THANKS! Just what I needed.
Solid, reliable and great to use. An absolute staple for roleplay and model-government forums.
Indispensable add-on for forward dating admin post or changing thread starter. Now even better with current time shortcut.
