Looks like you may have made an error in the /language/en/acp/forums.php file. What type of editor did you use? Some editors such as note pad can leave a BOM signature and cause strange errors. You may want to restore a back-up of this file and try editing it with wordpad but first I would look over your edits in that file to make sure you installed them correctly.

Yes that is most likely a BOM character, but download and use NotePad ++ it is free and does not inject BOM characters.

Also in NotePad ++ you should be able to see the BOM

How is this MOD working with 3.0.2? Can anyone confirm its efficacy?

I've got an old phpBB2 forums run this way for support, and I think it's time to upgrade, but I can't find a working alternative...

You do not need to reinstall. Mostly this is just makes it easy for people who want to use AutoMod. Also I changed the name to be more descriptive.
