Show Gender 0.2

Adds gender symbols to username in discussion

This plugin shows different symbols after the user names depending on their gender. Look at the CSS file enclosed for additional suggestions.

It might be necessary to change the CSS if you are not using the standard templates or future versions.

span.Gender_m > span.Author > a:last-child:after{

If that is not working for you, drop me a note or ask for help on the forum.

Although I made this plugin, I think it should better be done with an individual theme.

Known Bugs

Symbol is not always shown immediately for discussions or replies written by yourself. I think the reason is that they get uploaded and displayed with AJAX. They will all be displayed normally when you refresh.
But anyway: if you need a forum posting to see your own gender you've got more serious problems anyway ;-)

v0.2 merged a pull request from hgtonight that get's rid of an unnecessary db call - great finding, thanks for that!
