What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified whenever new updates are available.

* For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps me know how many people are using my work, giving me extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

I appreciate the support!

Users that are returning to my site after and extended absence, seem to be put into an infinite loop by this MOD. One of the comments was: "I can't update/complete profile. Link takes me back to email verification page each time I click on profile." For now I've disabled the MOD, but am wondering if you have ever encounter other admins with this issue?

THE AFTERMATH:
Here's what I think was happening. If a user had been absent over 275 days from the board, then this MOD required them to re-validate their email. This MOD by itself, has always seemed to work just fine.

However, I declared an existing user profile field (i.e. CITY) to now be required by all users so it also tried to take the lead in forcing users to put that data into the database immediately.

RESULT: Which came first, Revalidate your email -or- What is your (required) CITY? Apparently the code for each was trying to take the lead and get the data first. If a user did not have a CITY entry yet & had not been on the board for 275+ days…a train wreck ensued.

Luckily, disabling this MOD allowed users to update the CITY field and not get stuck in a loop.
