Script Summary:

Version: 1.4


This script is now obselete and no longer works with the current version of SU.

This script adds functionality enabling you to set and display an online status on your public profile page, similar to MSN. It does not affect your normal SU online status indicator, this script is meant to provide an additional indicator, with more options.

Update Note: If you are using an earlier version of the script, please set your status to (none) before installing the latest update. If you don't, you may end up with two status messages. If this happens, manually edit your "about me" section, and remove the html at the beginning, that isn't part of your normal text, and save.
