This plugin works like promised, you can show a message in all or selected forums to bring it to members attention that a topics last reply was x days ago. It doesn't shows it to guests and you can select the usergroup where it shows. Works fine on 4.3.6

I commissioned this reboot, because an older plugin I was using "worked" but causes thousands of errors.

This plugin does a simple job but does it well. The div has its own class so that you can style it appropriately in custom.css, which is appreciated, and the message is customizable with two variables that you can use to relay accurate information about your policy for "dead" topics and the time since the topic was last active.

Easy choice to add this plugin to my IPS installation.
