This is a fantastic idea & will keep watching for updates, but I keep getting a "can't find main file" error even when trying to use it even with one of your other plugins. It also only seems to work with the default acp theme but am sure that is a simple template edit.Note: This was caused by a stupid PHP 'feature' which has been fixed.

Fatal error: Call to a member function add_hook() on a non-object in public_html/inc/plugins/addforumoptions.php on line 14. What is the solution???Note: This was an unreproducible bug which shouldn't occur anymore.

I ran in to a small problem for this plugin which I was able to fix. After uploading the plugin I clicked on "Install and Activate". Everything seemed to go OK. When I tried to upload a plugin it asked for the password which I hadn't had the opportunity to set. For whatever reason upon installation the proper privileges for this plugin were not given to the admin accounts.

A handy plugin especially for those who don't know how to install plugin manually.
