QuoteThis mod doesn't exactly do what I'm looking for (one column), but it should do.
QuoteWhich brings us to the big question: Will it work in v2.0.8 if I revert all the way back to 1.4.1? I only see compatibility back to v2.0.4 listed in the download area.

QuoteI don't understand. The legend at the bottom clearly says it pertains to the mods

The legend at the bottom clearly says it pertains to the modsTrust me, it doesn't do what you think it does.This is designed for if you have multiple versions of a mod installed, whereupon it will show you which version is the current version.Mods, theoretically, can contain update instructions for themselves. For example, it's theoretically possible to have a 1.0 mod and a 1.1 mod where the 1.1 mod doesn't just contain instructions for installing the 1.1 version but also instructions on how to upgrade the 1.0 mod to 1.1. The problem is, doing this is so much hard work (since you end up maintaining two copies of the same code) that mod authors (me included) don't bother.But if a mod did do that, you'd have both in the list and the 1.0 version would be shown as 'older version' and 1.1 as 'current version'.It's doing exactly what it's supposed to be doing... even if that's not what people think it should be.
QuoteIsn't that common sense though? Why would anyone need multiple versions of a mod?

QuoteI just want to know is thereany mod coder in here willing to update it to SMF 2.0.9
