The enhancement (my suggestion) would compliment that, removing the portal instantaneously when the caster steps through. It's obvious you guys didn't read the code, which is located at

I know the code is setup to remove the portal after a length of time.
I added in a portal code very similar, with the ability to "look in
to see the other side.
The original message states that they want the portal to be removed when
the caster
steps through. Nothing mentioned about leaving the original removal
Hence I went on that basis, and my statements stand. I recommend not
making the
portal disappear when the caster steps through. The caster will
never step through the portal, defeating the purpose.
