Artifacts in on the settings page in the CP

Just wanted to pass this on just in case someone else runs into this issue. After a fresh installation of BWF addon, I visited the settings area and noticed unparsed PHP code around the form (see attached image). The culprit turned out to be that our PHP "short_open_tag" in PHP ini is set to false which disables the short form of the opening php tag "<?". The index.php file in the views folder has the short form at the top and bottom of the page. "<?=" shorthand is ok though. After turning the short form "<?" into the long form "<"?php". I sort of glanced at all the other files and everything else seems to be working. So either turn on the php.ini option, or convert all your short form to long form tags.

Great add-on! Just what we were looking for!

    Hi KS,

    We caught this one pretty early after we released it into the wild, and have gone back to the longer form in the next release. Thanks for putting this solution up though, will be useful for all who are on a server without this enabled.
