    has anyone yet mentioned to you that 2.1x are beta ? and unsupported both as functioning forum, and plugin compatability

    Also http://vanillaforums.org/addon/711/van2shout is VANILLA 2 not Vanilla 2.1 which I think is what that denotes

    I know that I'm using a alpha/beta software. I reported here only to have a feedback from others 2.1 users (if any) and as an information to users that want to use 2.1. I also have written to the author since I think that he wants to know.

    Note: currently I'm building over vanilla 2.1 a community website for a client. I really apprecciate VF team (and contributors) work: after spending few weeks working with VF I can really see VF code and architecture quality. Without VF my work would be much harder (and longer).

    Since you're working for a client, you will most likely recognize this situation:
    Client calls & tells you 'It's not working'. What's not working? 'The site'. What's not working on the site? 'When you click the buttons, nothing happens'. Which browser are you using? 'I don't know'. It was working before, what did you do to make it stop working? 'I don't know'.

    Good info huh? And that's from a client.

    In order to make van2shout work, I would assume to first make a simple change: Replace all instances of &$Sender with $Sender, then figure out exactly what is not working.

    I'm sorry.

    Yes, this is the cause of the problem. I assume that there was a change in parameters passing, from 2 to 2.1. So probably many other plugins aren't working with 2.1 for "just" this.

    Thank you.

    I know and I need your & everyone's help to give solutions to anyone who has similar problems. So if anyone has a problem with 2.1 and a plugin 'not working', just give this solution first before finding any other answers.

    And of course the '2.1 is still in alpha / beta' speech, but that goes without saying.

    Yes, there are various reports that van2shout is not working with 2.1, and to be honest, I am suprised there are so many people actually using the plugin!

    Did it work after removing the &'s?

    Just pushed a quick fix to be compatible with VF 2.1. Anyone interested can leave here some feedback.

    Download from my repo (master) https://github.com/lifeisfoo/Van2Shout (author's repo here https://github.com/Caerostris/Van2Shout)

    All your changes merged, great work!
    I'll upload the changes to vf somewhen on monday and try to get some stuff like options for relocation working with the new version... So right know everyone who's using vf 2.1 has to pull Van2Shout from either mine or lifeisfoo's repo!
