Hi Andy - I downloaded and installed this, however I could not find where to edit the description. I looked everywhere.
This is a very easy and simple-to-use add-on. It allowed us to just copy/paste the contents from our previous CMS page and drop them right into AndyB's aboutus_description Phrase. Click Save Phrase and we were done! It makes the information readily available, yet is not intrusive in any way. A PERFECT solution for our needs!
Great addon that does exactly what it says on the box. Like this as a tab as not worried about the number of views and it makes it easier for members/ visitors to the site find ... especially as one of our sites doesn't allow any forum access to unregistered guests. Also cheers for adding the group permissions Andy :).
