StopForumSpam.pl is in the wrong directory, it should be in sources.

Are you saying StopForumSpam.lng needs to be uploaded to 'cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin/'

the files need to uploaded to 'cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin/'

NOT 'yabbfiles/Templates/Admin/'

The admin graphics (not the .png) go into yabbfiles/Templates/Admin/default/

the .png goes into yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default

You will not see any changes to your admin area (or anywhere else) until the other necessary files are edited and uploaded.

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Glad you got it sorted. Once you get used to it, it will come easy and you will soon have mod fever. I have about 30 mods on mine.

Well, it's bed time for me. Worked night shift last night and am also recovering from eye surgery. Going rest them.

Good luck.
