That's kind of a major issue don't you think? If I need to edit my proxy post and it ends up displaying my real name, my proxy post is pointless. On top of that, other users will be able to figure out who my other proxy posts (in other threads) actually belong to.

Won't be able to use this as an anonymous post hack.

I wondered what happened to MarcoH64. I haven't seen him anywhere on this site for awhile...maybe on vacation or exams?

Any body has this problem ?
I installed ver.1.0.0.1
I have te same problem. The hack works fine apart from when I try to make a new thread with a proxy account. My site is a Zoints community and I have had consultants look at the "newthread" template and they couldn't find anything wrong.

MarcoH64, do you have any ideas on how I can solve this problem?

Marco, this hack is causing a couple of minor problems on my site.

1) When making a new thread with a proxy account, your main account makes the thread, not the proxy account.

2) When someone edits a post, they lose 1 to their post count. I have found out (by disabling all hacks one at a time and testing editing threads) that this hack is the cause.

Is there any chance of getting a couple of fixes to solve these problems?

Take a look at MarcoH64's profile...he hasn't been around for almost a month.

Zowers, are you also noticing that when someone edits a proxy post that their main account displays?

No I have not encountered this bug. I wonder why we have these probs, and no other site does?

Marco, rnmcd, have either of you guys found out how to fix this problem?

I have also had several coders looking through the templates and they found no errors either

Can anyone help me with this problem?
