  • PHP 5.3+
  • Vanilla 2.0/2.1b (see Notes)


  • Plugin has been tested on Vanilla 2.1b and it should be compatibile with it. However, since Vanilla 2.1 is still in Beta, compatibility cannot be guaranteed. For the same reason, we provide limited assistance for installations in such environment.
  • Plugin is provided as is. I won't be able to provide support for it, but I'm sure that the community will be happy to help, in case of need.


Thanks to Zach, from Vanilla Community, for the ideas behind this plugin. You can see his work on his website.
