  • Wow! this is excellent feature.
    I like it so much.


  • Awsome but license is a lil bit expensive. Thanx.

  • This is really cool, I wonder if I could get it integrated with one of my forums.. :o

    @Yigit The script is free for non-commercial use.

    Any chance we cud integrate it to wordpress blogs???

  • I will advise the script owner to also support MS SQL Server, not just mySQL, people using SQL Server are used to paying, otherwise he is not gonna sell, people in the open-source world will try to use it for free, forever.
