    It a useful plugin, but would you mind to remove the "!!!" form the version file's 65 line: "1.6.6: !!! Updated for October 420+"?

    There is syntax error because of it: "A syntax error was detected in /var/www/html/plugins/indikator/backend/updates/version.yaml. The string "!!! Updated for October 420+." could not be parsed as it uses an unsupported built-in tag at line 60 (near "1.6.6: !!! Updated for October 420+.") at line 43 (near "/var/www/html/vendor/october/rain/src/Parse/Yaml.php")."

    Thank you!

  • Found the plugin not useful on 5 Oct, 2017

    The docs say:

    Activate features Go to the Settings > Back-end preferences page in the Backend. Click on the Display or Behavior tab. You can activate any new features.

    This does not exist on my back-end. There is nowhere for me to activate these new features. The trash cleanup menu and widgets is available and useable. However, I cannot find the display and behavior tabs.
