Would love to see this compatible with EE 2.0. Any idea on when that might occur? (Hint, hint)

Adam, I’m using a local database. As soon as I use this module in my template, my page blanks out. Also I wasn’t sure where to install the module files, so I created a folder “external_saef” in modules. Any ideas? Thanks!

I think I figured it out. I added $DB to the global vars in the form function (line 42).
