so I gave this one a shot. after emulating to rc5, the mod installed without any error on my localhost site. it operated normally on default and custom themes.
but when I installed it on my actual site it did not work
I manually checked all edits and all is alright, except the mod does not work. I guess it has something to do with the 60 other mods installed
thought that this might help users who are wondering if this mod works with smf 2.0.2
