This release was more of a maintenance release but also has a few new features that was asked for. In this release I had put in such things like the FaceBook comments that has admin controls within the the module that allows you to pick if you what the one made for light themes or the one for dark themes, also it has the options to allow you to set the width of the comments section and set the moderators for moderating the comments. I also put in a link to the debugging because you may need to debug the downloads page until Facebook updates. Full instructions are in the section to what you would need to do. Any questions can be asked on this site. Other features and maintenance stuff done to the site was by user request. Another new feature was the ability to add in category icons for individual categories.
The following is a list of some of the fixes and upgrades I have done for version 1.2.1
[FIX] Scrolling Featured system
[FIX] Area to manually put in the URL for the Download
[UPDATED] Got the system PHP5 compliant.
[UPGRADE] Added in the ability to assign Category icons
[UPGRADE] Added in FaceBook Comments along with full admin controls.
There are many other small things as usual, but I figured I get the big points across and try not to bore you with all the little things. I know that this needed to get done and for the longest time I been saying I am done with it, no more, just because it takes lots of hours of coding and testing and I could spend my time in other area's that could help my clan in the donations, but I had people that kept bugging me and asking about it and finally convinced me to do this release. I like to thank 5STAR for testing this for me and coming up with a few features and helping me figure out if something is worth doing or not doing. For a preview, you can go to my site and see it here:
