    when I look at some discussions it say this at the top of the page.

    "Please upgrade to 2.1.x here. The 2.0 branch is no longer being updated."

    May I suggest upgrade to 2.2 since everyone says 2.1.x has security issues and 2.2 is better.

    Hi guys, I guess the plugin does not work with the 2.1.5 version. There is no directory /entry/ and the plugin fails.

      What plugin? There's never an /entry directory. We use a dispatcher.

    Hello Linc,

    I would really love to get onboard onto the vanilla.com version. My current pageviews is about 2.2 million in last 30 days !

    But hosted Vanilla is too too pricey. Especially for populaous countries like India where a million people may get online but Ad revenue is peanuts.

    Also, I expect pageviews to increase to 5 - 7 million in a year's time.

    How do big Forums manage themselves with such expensive pricing?
