I found today that I could not get v1.1 to work with multiple forums so contacted Andy. Shortly after he released v1.2 saying that to get the add-on to work in all situation he'd had to restrict the number of forums to just one. Disappointing but it couldn't be helped. Then two hours later I get a message that v1.3 is out and multi forums are back! Installed and working fine. 5 stars for a great little add-on and great support.
Added new feature promptly! Great add-on + great author.
