    Is this per user or per all on certain forum?

    I may need this in the future, good job!

    The default error message, however, could have been worded a bit better as it can lead users to believe that they've posted 5 times in that specific forum when they haven't even posted once.

    Consider this:
    "Sorry, the maximum number of 5 threads per day set for this forum has been reached. Please come back tomorrow."
    or
    "Sorry, the maximum number of 5 threads per day set for this forum has been reached. Go back to index."

    (Yes, I know the admin can change this to whatever they choose to, just a suggestion...)

    Is there any way possible you can make a WEEKLY thread limit? We want our each of our users to only be able to create a new thread ONCE per week on certain forums.

    I didn't realize upon posting that this is for ALL, not per user. I'd still like others to be able to post to the forum if they haven't reached their limit. I could be wrong, but wouldn't this make EVERYONE unable to post after ONE individual had already posted? Maybe I'm wrong.

    But thank you none the less if I am wrong. Hah. That is awesome. :)

    Edit: The other issue I get is also when uploading said .xml I get "Please enter a valid callback method". We're running 1.0.4

    TBH I have never used the mod, nor even looked at the code prior to you asking if it was possible to make it a week instead of a day, so I can't give a concrete answer. Based on the wording in the warning message in the screen shots I would venture to guess the limit itself is on a user by user basis, though.
