ok, that seemed to have done it.

I have the option checked that guest can post. and that option is not even showing up. I think I am going to do a fresh install of punbb. I did change a few files. Nothing that should effect any of it. But would like to do it anyways.

I put the file in the extensions folder.
I installed it with the extensions in the admin panel.
punbb 1.3.4
mysql 5
php 5
I have changed the header and footer, but nothing that should effect the textarea.

I downloaded and installed the plugin. Yet it is still unable to work. Did I download it wrong or put it into the wrong file?
