Which errors ?

It works like given in the Install file:

Deactivate the Addon
Uninstall it
Delete the files

Then you can delete the Phrases too if you wish. If you get SQL Errors, you can delete the 4 mgc_evo_... tables:

mgc_cb_evo_channel
mgc_cb_evo_chat
mgc_cb_evo_command
mgc_cb_evo_session

Hey guys!

I know this is not the question a developer would like to hear but is there an ETA on when the new version is going to be released? The reason why I am asking this is because of this post. My members are going to crazy because of it... it is a really annoying bug lol.

Sorry for asking this question but for me, it is really important to know coz at the moment, I am thinking of disabling the entire mod.

Thank you in advance!

That's a server issue. Unless it's marked in the known issue.

Unless it's that medium issue where chat's don't get removed during inactivity.

And I'm pretty sure when he's done, it will come out. He'll say the same I did. Quality or crap. Crap = rush.

Haha. Powa Ranga. LOL.

It's gotta be on the linux boxes. Oddly I host both Windows and Linux and neither have had this issue. But for sql errors, your best bet is to find the version you had prior, and the current. REMOVE all mgc files. uninstall. If error doesn't go away, reinstall, uninstall (yeah, I know WTF! but doing this recreates the tables you are missing) and then start over. If you want help with this just ask.

I didn't see it mentioned anywhere but I would just like to make a couple requests on the new version perhaps maybe others would feel they would be beneficial as well...

1. If there is a way to make it so that the BB CODE drop down menu stays active for all users at all times. I always have members asking me how to post a picture etc, where I feel that if they could actually see the BB CODE icons then it would help members be able to know how to post pictures and change font color on the fly etc.

2. If there is a way to make it so that when users are active in the chat that they will show up under the "Currently Active Users" list. I noticed that when users and just kickin back in the chatbox for a length of time that their names disappear from the currently active users list.

Thanks!

There is a timeout (it's an option).

Are you talking about the "Inactive Mode" or the "Chatbox sessions validity time"? I am a little unsure, but if so then how does the session validity time work? As stated before, my concern is when members come on the forum, and then jump on the chatbox, they become listed as INACTIVE after the set Session Timeout time. So then they don't appear on the "Currently Active Users" list anymore. Yet they are on the chatbox posting away...

But if users are in inactive mode they won't appear in the list of course.
