With this modification you will have the option to replace the redirect link over forumdisplay.php with the real direct external link. This option can be set for each forum (that has the Forum URL set) individually. This will work both on ForumHome and on ForumDisplay.

If you mean the subforums of the Shop Links & Business Links, they are probably using a level3 forumbit, did you also edit that template?

Maybe he's thanking you for it, and planning on downloading/installing it at a later date.

Or maybe thanking you for longstanding service to the community

I confess, when a saw it was a 'Herwaarden' I thought, must be good! but I still can't find purpose on my forum for this hack...

I didn't see a level3 template. I searched for "forumhome_forumbit_" and 1 and 2 came up, that's it.

You will need to edit the template that is used to show these sub-forums in 2 columns. If you do not know which template it is, shortly enable debug to see which template it is.

If you can not figure it out, you could send me admin login details by PM and i will have a look (for your testboard would be best if you have a test copy of your board).

Here is the code that is included with that mod. I disabled it once, and that didn't change anything.

Are there any screen shots for this mod?

I dont really understand what this mod does. Currently you click the link icon and type in the page and then give a description for it. How does this mod make that process work better?

Screenshots would not show you much.

If you use a forum link (ie. fill out the link in the Forum Manager), regular vBulletin would put a link like "../forumdisplay.php?f=1234" on your forumhome or forumdisplay. When clicked it would redirect to the link provided. With this modification it is possible to replace the forumdisplay.php?f=1234 link on these pages, with the target link itself.

For a moment there, I thought this hack would produce live forum links(with stats) like a true forum...
