If these 2 issues have already been addressed and/or resolved I missed them in the earlier posts. Sorry.
OH, I'll add them to the list and look into them.

Do not use the fix that is intended for previous versions !!! This will mess up all your forums !!

You got the security token with all files updated and all templates reverted ?

The rules in the chatbox (little "R" button).

I checked around and cannot figure out how to make the chatbox so that registered members can see the pics that are in the shouts. Right now all they see is a X box, the mods and admin can see the pic though.

Thanks

How many shouts are you displaying in the chatbox ?
What is your refresh rate ?
Are you using a shared/free host ?

When you add an image to a chat with the "Insert Image" part, only the admins and mods can see everyone else only sees a white box with a X through it

I think he meant to tell you to click the button with the little question mark (?) rather then the one Rules button (R). That's where the explanations are.

Can you give me a link to your forum with a test account and the chatbox enabled ?

I don't really want to install if I don't want them. I know the question mark is to tell you about the commands, but I don't want to install it without knowing what they do. Can someone please just tell me what they do?

for those having problems with images, i had this issue but i worked it out in my case any how u just can't drop in a gif called "support.gif" it won't work, you need to drop in the gif twice into the channel folder.

mgc_cb_evo_sup_sel

mgc_cb_evo_sup_nosel

The sup for me indicated which channel it was for in my case support, adjust to whatever your rooms/images are called.

I have 5 channels setup and it now replaces flashchat

hope this helps someone else
