I would like to see the date I installed a mod on the list of Modifications installed.  Would that be possible?

Look in /Packages/backups.  Package manager creates a forum backup when it installs a mod, and the file date tells you when it was installed.

I hate to sound totally dumb, but where do I find packages\backup?

Sir Osis of Liver

Look in your forum root directory with host file manager or ftp client.

SMF 2.1 RC4 (default theme) / TP 2.1.0

Interesant mod,  this is a "must have" modification ,it should be an default modification for new next update

MaryLouW

I fully agree!  This should be a part of the basic program.  I really, REALLY like it!! :)

in SMF 2.1 the date/time that a mod was installed shows up in the listing of mods installed.

Arantor

And the person that wrote the mod was the person who put it into 2.1 if I remember correctly... ;)

Are you saying that it's already a part of SMF?

Irisado

It is part of SMF 2.1, yes, but not the current stable version 2.0.x.

OH, okay.  I guess that's why I don't have it.  My version is 2.0.13.   I didn't know there was a 2.1 available.  Anyway, it's a great thing to have!   :)

Irisado

Just to be clear, 2.1 is not yet available for a live site, it's still in beta.  You're welcome to install it and play around with it on a local host/test forum if you wish to see it in action, but please do not install it on a live forum.

A new version coming down!  That sounds great!  As much as I would like to install and play with it, I have too many spoons in the kettle at the time.  I'll wait for it to be announced.   Thanks for clarifying that.  I try and keep up with the latest versions which is pretty easy since the program tells me when it needs to be updated. 

I have been using SMF for 9 years and I love it!  Looking forward to the next version. Thanks!!!
