Oh no I don't like things installing to my user profile without asking me... Could you make it ask where I want to install it?

Anyway, I think this would be useful for me. Thanks!

Sorry, didn't notice that. It's been a while since I installed PasteIP, and I just borrowed the installer from that. I always install to my profile, so I must have completely forgotten that some people dont :D That or the fact that it's 3am is causing problems.

[Edit: Just uploaded it with choice of installation directory.]

How did you install pasteip to your profile? Mine doesn't give a choice and always installs to the programme directory.

Thanks. Ah too bad I clicked a little early. Nice it's working just fine. That quote of your post above was done using Paste Quote.

One suggestion, which I am not sure if it's at all possible (maybe with ActiveX control), is to allow copying of quoted images (mostly smilies) as well. Hmm... what I really mean is WYSIWYG copying and pasting...

There's two versions, maybe you used a different one to me... :? Anyway, I'll do some research about the WYSIWYG copying at a later date, but I'm not sure how possible it'd be. We'll see ;)

Cool extension.
I do not think it is for the lazy though.
A time saver is what it really is.
Thanks Cusser.

Would be great, but all I get is a -214 error code when installing.

I'll probably put all my extensions out tonight, I've been a bit lazy, but I *am* working on it. Thanks for the offer though... you might like to ask MonkeeSage the same thing if you've got time on your hands. He has hundreds :D

Maybe later - I'm trying to recreate the Lock Tab feature of TBE in TBP, and it's not quite working ATM. Once it is, I might PM him.
