Very handy add on. Rein has done a nice job of creating a useful tool that works both in the control panel and with Channel Form, Profile:Edit and more.

Just downloaded and added 1.5.1 to an EE site using Freeform. Added the basic parameters and voila; it just works. Many thanks for this excellent free plugin!

Stunning. Absolutely easy to set up without knowledge of javascript, works absolutely as expected, super-fast and competent support from the developer - and all for free.

I am using it with the Threaded-Comments-Addon and there are no problems.

Awesome tool!

I’m using it in combination with Safecracker and Zoo Visitor with no hassle what so ever.

Thanks for developing this! :)
