First off... I really only do YaBBPaks... I don't do BoardMod.  Some Mod authors only do BoardMod... I only do YaBBPaks.  Having said that, the best way to install the mod is to download the YaBBPak via the Package Manager of your board and install it that way.  Barring that, the zip file contains everything used to construct the YaBBPak and is about 99.9% of what you need to either do a BoardMod install or a manual install.  Thankfully this mod is pretty simple so I think I can talk you through it.  There should be two versions of the modification file (*.mod)... choose the one that best fits your version of YaBB SE.  And open it in your favorit text editor.  The .mod is in this format:
Code: [Select]
<file>
**** Name of File to be Modified ****
</file>

<search>
**** String to be Searched 4 ****
</search>

<replace|add|before>
**** Modification to be Made
</replace|add|before>
You will want to open the file that is meant to be modified.... search for the string to be search for... and the either replace it with the modification, add it directly after it or add it directly before it (depending on what the mod istruction indicates)

After you have performed all the modification instructions, upload the file and you should be up and running.  (as a side note, some mods require a database modifiaction file to be run... this one does not)

Finally... be very careful when performing these "search and change" steps... because there are too many unknowns (to me) when a person does a hand install, I won't be ableto help you out too much... be thankful this only has 2 modifications.

-Jack

Oh... and if you decide you want to use BoardMod... BoardMod does not understand the same modification instructions so it would need to be translated... (not too hard but not something I'll do)
