Nice MOD, just a heads up: on my forum I upgraded from 2.0.19 to 2.1 without first removing the Mods.

I assume I am not the only one that did that. Now on the upgraded 2.1 forum it is is still reporting the old 2.0.19 mods as installed, which is abit confusing...

This due to this selection made to determine the installed mods:

$dbresult = $smcFunc['db_query']('', "
select distinct package_id,version
FROM {db_prefix}log_packages
WHERE time_removed = 0");

Needless to say that the mods that were installed on 2.0.19 but are no longer relevant in 2.1 are still being reported and checked...

Suggestion, change the code to this:

$dbresult = $smcFunc['db_query']('', "
select distinct package_id,version,name
FROM {db_prefix}log_packages
WHERE time_removed = 0 AND install_state != 0");

It should now, my automatic job to fetch updates from the mod site was disabled on my end should work now. And note it  is not instant I only fetch the data from the SMF site every 12 hours.

Yep, it shows up now.

I did not realize that the API was actually calling YOUR site and not directly accessing the Simplemachines MOD site. Makes sense now...

Yeah, keeps the mod less complex. Plus a lot easier resource wise on smf.org since only system is calling twice a day the data.

I made some small adaptations to the modchecker2.xml file for SMF2.1. to create some space between the tables and to add the Dutch language strings...

I think the button to fetch the updates could be positioned to not overlap the header, but did not get around to fix that...

I made a small change to make the "Check for Modifications" button separate from the header. See attached xml file.

You might also want to have a look at what happens with the Optimus MOD.
The offical version number of the installed mod is 2.10.5 [12.04.22], the version checker is reporting it as not up to date with a version of 2.10.5.

I think the [12.04.22] bit is being ignored in the comparison?

For the Optimius mod not sure what todo https://custom.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=2659
Mod site reports 2.10.5  the version the mod reports does have 2.10.5  but it also has the extra information. I guess build information.

I'm using 2.1.2 ... even worse, when trying to go to Package Manager all I get is a white page.

Anything in forums error log? Does the package manager load at all? Or is the white page when you check for updates?
