I added it and everything works fine. I like the search feature.

RE: Username History v1.4 - Lani - Mar 26, 2012

I seem to get an SQL error when I hit 'Install & Activate'

SQL Error:
1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'TYPE=MyISAM' at line 8

CREATE TABLE board_username_history ( id int(5) NOT NULL auto_increment, uid int(6) NOT NULL, username varchar(120) NOT NULL, date bigint(30), PRIMARY KEY (id), INDEX (uid) ) TYPE=MyISAM;

Excuse me if the issue is very obvious, I'm semi-new to MyBB.

Edit plugin file change TYPE to ENGINE. I'll tell Xerotic to update the plugin file.
