Guests Signups in SMF Event Registration Mod

Just spent the whole day adding a few new features to the existing SMF Event Registration Mod.  It's not my mod per se, but I've added quite a few changes to it over the course of the past year.  This last one is probably the most substantial.

The basic premise now is that when signing up, you can fill out the name field, implying that you can sign yourself up as well as people who are not members.  This also leads to the possibility of guests signing up for the event (people who are not members at all or are just too lazy to log in).

Based on my own experience running a number of other websites, these two features are going to be most useful in terms of getting more participation and matching the functionality of other sign-up forms on the web.

Feel free to download the SMF Mod here:
SMF Event Registration 0.17-Modified

Total changes made are:
- Allow multiple registrations from the same member, to allow them to sign additional people up.  Optional per event.
- Allow registrations from guests.  Optional per event.
- Admin Register button added, allows you to register or delete other members from the event.
- Admin buttons always visible now, even if Admin isn't registered for the event.
- Allow members with moderating permissions to administrate event sign ups.
- Event administrator can also confirm or cancel any signups on the topic view.
- $timeleft fixed, was originally not ever getting the option to confirm. (Display Source and Template)
- Show number of days remaining before you can confirm. (Display Template and Language files)
- Setting days before confirmation to 0 disables confirmation for the event (hides confirm buttons).
- Post Event page (the one with just event title, no post) does not show event data; sometimes too much clutter when you might not want to link the event to a topic. (Calendar template)
- Event registration options on post event page combined on same lines to save space. (Post template)
- Terms and Conditions don't show if they are blank. (registerEvent.php)
