Support

This plugin existed in 2006, so it probably works with many versions of Movable Type. However, it has not been tested by After6 Services with any version of Movable Type prior to Movable Type 4.38. It is known to work with Movable Type 5 up to at least 5.2.3.

Although After6 Services LLC has contributed to the development of this plugin, After6 only provides support for this plugin as part of a Movable Type support agreement that references this plugin by name.
