I was wondering if you could consider adding in Minimum days since last post? I have some users that log in regularly but have not posted in a while. It would be nice to have this additional filter option if possible. Thanks for reading.
I added it for 1.6.0, just waiting for a couple troubleshooting fixes before I release it.

I moved the code around dealing with the errors you are getting and they shouldn't show up anymore.
Okay, so I uninstalled the old one, reinstalled with product version 1.5.2 and overwrote all of the FTP files with the new ones.

Well, the layout problems seem to be gone when this is active and it looks like the boxes check and uncheck like they should for Alternate Additions.

Bugs:

Avatars still don't show up no matter what I select in the drop down box.
None of the Alternate Additions appear in the User Spotlight when they are checked.
Custom Username CSS doesn't appear to work.
When the signature box is checked I still get the following error.

Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #1 is not an array in [path]/includes/functions.php(1455) : eval()'d code on line 5
EDIT: Just wanted to note that I'm on vBulletin 3.8.4

Hey Warlord, for the avatar issue, did you change the avatar dimensions to whatever you allow on your forum? I think that the default on the mod was 80 x 80 but I had to change mine to 130 x 130 to get mine to display since that is what I allow on my forums. Just a thought. Trying to help out.

Is the avatar not showing at all or is it a broken link?
Maybe you modified the template with a previous version and didn't revert? That's a possible reason why none of the additional fields are showing up at all.

The signature thing is weird. I installed 3.8.4 and the mod on my dev and I don't get that error with the signature enabled. Maybe it's something in the users sig that is messing it up? Can you pm me the text that's in the sig so I can try it out locally?

Well I feel rather foolish. You were right about the template not being reverted. I had assumed that by removing the hack entirely I had also removed the old template. Silly me.

Okay, so avatars seem to be working now.

Custom Username CSS and Custom Profile Fields don't seem to be working still (yes, I made sure the member in the spotlight had filled out the Custom Profile Field).

The only other issue I'm having now is that when the signature block is checked my forum layout goes bonkers. It's really not a big deal for me because I'm not going to include signatures in my spotlight but I just thought I'd point it out.

I get this error at the very top of my screen:

Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #1 is not an array in [path]/includes/functions.php(1455) : eval()'d code on line 5
My page layout looks like the attached image. The text in his signature appears to be a BBcode link to his blog. (We don't allow HTML in signatures).

I should also note that I have Cyb - Sub-Forum Manager installed. Perhaps the two hacks just conflict for some reason. (CSS issues?)

I also noticed in the template there seems to be an if statement to span 3 columns, but I don't see the option in the admin cp anywhere. Am I just missing it?

I doubt it's conflicting with the sub forum manager. Most likely the error is screwing up code that's getting outputted and that is messing up the layout.
I'm not sure what's causing it. I have the same thing in my sig on my dev site.

The 3 column span is for the users that have it set to show below the navbar. I needed to have some additional formatting for it to look right.

What are you putting in the custom field setting? Are you putting the number or the whole thing? Like field5 or just 5?

The Custom Profile Fields seem to be working now. I guess it just needed some time to reset itself?

Hmm, it doesn't store any data so not sure why it started working. Not going to complain though

I just updated to 1.6.1 and the profile image and avatars are not showing.

The image path is not generated correctly.

I have my forum installed in a subdirectory, /forum, the img src for both do not include the subdirectory in the path.

it generates
domain.com/customavatars/avatar1_5.gif
when it should be
domain.com/forum/customavatars/avatar1_5.gif

I made an update with 1.6.2
Hopefully fixed the avatar issues with the different installation layouts, pretty much replicated the way vB sets the path to the avatar/profile pic
Fixed bbcode not parsing on custom fields
Switched code to use existing data so was able to eliminate all but 2 custom db queries, should be better on performance now.

My profile images and avatar images are working again. Thanks for the update.

I upgraded to the latest version 1.6.2 (uploaded new files and installed new xml) but now it won't randomly select anyone in the scheduled tasks. Anyone else having this issue? Should I completely uninstall, delete all of the files off my server and reupload/reinstall?

What do you have for the settings?
Maybe something in there is not letting it select a new user
