Already using it ;) Good work... everthing's fine (^_^)

But why's the Member- and StaffList still at the bottom of each page?

It was designed to be like that. :)

i always liked usebb, great job pc_freak ^_^ keep it up :D,
does it have a installer yet? ._., i hate doing manual job >.<

It does have one but it's going to be replaced by the real installer script soon.

The real installer script? Do tell me more :)

Yes, the installer should set many configuration options itself, as listed on the features page. It should also register the first user and eventually delete itself when complete.

Great, you have coded the base for it already?

Not yet.
