If you have your Who.php original, attach here.
Else tell me version of your Custom Block.
I tried implementing what you wrote here.
I changed the version to 2.3.2 and getting rid of extra tab. It still didn't help.
I have attached current who.php.
Thanks

Copyright line for v2.3.2 is different. I attach your Who.php with copyright corrected. Replace this in your served and try uninstall.

Compatible with SMF 2.0.16 and 2.0.17.

I just have a question of anyone who has this mod installed, please (I've not installed it yet). 

I'm specifically looking today for a solution that would allow me to have a field of text appear beneath a particular category and before its subsequent boards, that would provide some in-depth information about the purpose of the category.  For instance, in the attached screenshot of Simple Machines, you see the category "General Community" and the first board is "Chit Chat".

If I had a similar category on one of my forums and wanted a field to appear between General Community and Chit Chat, so that I could insert text that gave some detailed information about the category and its purpose....  could I do that with this mod?  Can the block be placed as specifically as that, or is it limited to only a few locations?

Thanks.   :)

No, I don't think you can do that with this mod... though I don't have it installed.

Ah...  thanks.  I also looked at the author's Custom Fields but my "Stupid Meter" started going off and I had to stop.   :D

Sorry, this is not possible. :(

That mod adds custom field in post or topic, not allow do this.




Your wanted block is a good idea to do in next update ;) : add custom blocks in forum index before/after a category, before/after a forum and before/after a child forum.

Wow, that would be awesome!  Sometimes the title bar for the Category just isn't big enough to say it all, and a plain white field below would really be useful.  Thanks, I look forward to it!   :D

This update you speak of, will it be for 2.1 RC4 or 2.1? ;)
