    Great to have all these new features in this release, thanks:), would also be nice for us Elite package purchasers to get the two new modules included I think :)

  5. Awesome news.

    Also I think that it would be great if the two new modules were included in the elite version.

    As it stands to update to these two it is actually more expensive than buying the elite version new.

    Anyway it's great news and means I can get a refund on my WP Mage system.

    Congratulations on an ever improving product!

    When I check the link cloaking option I get the following at the top of the option page:

    "Link cloaking has been enabled but additional steps are required to set it up!
    Please follow the instructions in this post. Otherwise your affiliate links will not work!"

    I did follow the instructions and updated the htaccess file. However that warning is still there. Is it always there or was it supposed to dissappear after properly updating the htaccess file?

    patrickmktg, you're right, seems like the message will show up everytime when saving options. As long as you did the setup don't worry about it. I'll remove it with the next update.

    I agree the new updates are great. And although I have the elite version, and love freebies, I don't think we should expect the new modules for free - we're already getting free updates that add so much value over what we originally paid for. Its only fair that we pay extra for totally new functions.

    Forgot to say, the one thing I'd like is to be able to download all of my updates from one page, instead of doing the drop-down thang multiple times.

  10. I am having a problem saving any alterations on the WP Robot admin page. I get an error msg 'Keyword could not be updated' and 'You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page'. How do I resolve this?
