Approval Email Notification not working with 2.6 [RESOLVED]

Hi all, I'm trying to get the plugin "Approval Email Notification 0.1.0" to work on my forum, in order for the mod/admin staff to be notified when there's a new applicant waiting approval.

It doesn't seem to work with Vanilla 2.6 (no surprise, it's old). I attempted the fix in 2.5 here:

...however this fix does not seem to work on 2.6.

I see the plugin listed, and can turn it on; but when I click the "Settings" icon for this plugin, instead of a setting window popping up, nothing happens. Instead, on the bottom left a grey box with the word "more" pops up. When I click on the word "more", a window pops up that appears to be a list of the Moderator/Admin users, but the context is broken, and there's nothing to click on (checkboxes etc).

Anyone have a fix for this plugin for Vanilla 2.6 installs? Or now what to look at next for troubleshooting?

Attaching screenshots.

    Hah, uh... okay... Apologies, this whole discussion may be moot.

    Long story short, I've been using Vanilla forums since 2006; been on a hiatus for a few years, getting back into setting up a new community. In earlier 2.X iterations, I made use of this "Notify for new user" addon.

    When messing around in the 2.6 user dashboard for Notification Preferences, I saw that there was the following line:

    "Notify me when anyone applies for membership."

    On a whim, I disabled the above Addon, and checked my Notification Preferences again: It's still there. Hah.

    In other words, in some recent iteration, admin email notification for new users has become a default feature of the basic Vanilla forums suite, and I didn't notice. I didn't need this plugin after all.

    So... RESOLVED, I guess? Functionality is now in native 2.6 Vanilla code.
