Package is not really an installer


Great extension.

One suggestion:
The naming of the package suggest you can install from the extensions page.

As it doesn't contain a manifest DNN thinks it's a legacy skin package.

I would rename to:
And change the text "Installation Files"
On this page:

To: Installation Files (Unzip before install)

Or add a DNN5 manifest :-)

A manifest could be created for the project - if anyone wants to take the time to do this I'd be happy to include the changes. One problem with that is that I wouldn't want the package to automatically install & configure itself as soon as it was installed.

Hmm.. I think you are right, that the package should not configure itself, as it influences all portals and host user might not realise the potential SEO risk.
So a manifest file was not a good idea I guess..
