Updates to SMF Event Registration Mod 0.174

     I finally managed to put aside some time to add comment boxes to the SMF Event Registration Mod.  Appologies upfront for those who were requesting the feature almost a month ago.

     What the new change does for SMF Forums is basically allow those who sign up to also add a comment next to their name.  This is useful if you want to collect additional information on your event, such as dietary restrictions or preferences.  Like other changes, this is optional and can be enabled/disabled per event.

     You can download the updated file here:

     Just a quick disclaimer, but this is not my mod per se but a series of improvements on the original mod at SMF.  I'm hoping to get these changes incorporated into the official version eventually, as they've been very useful in the past couple years I've used this mod, but we'll see how that goes.

The total changes made to the original are now:
- 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.
- Allow comments to accompany signups (for additional information such as event needs, etc).
- 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).
- Setting max attendants to 0 will disable registration for that event (not every event needs signups).
- 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)
