I am not sure that you did use the good checkboxes. There is one group to avoid users to select them as default parameters in their usercp and the other to just allow the bbcodes. I think you misunderstood the text and did the contrary.
--------
Je ne suis pas sur que tu ais sélectionné les bonnes checkbox. Dans l'admincp, il y a la possibilité de choisir les paramètres que les utilisateurs peuvent sélectionner par défaut dans leur usercp et également la possibilité de choisir quels bbcode sont utilisables par les utilisateurs. Je pense que tu as mal compris le texte et fait l'inverse
I will test my forum on an other server to see.
----------
Je vais essayer sur un autre serveur pour vérifier.

___________

Not because I have checked some checkbox and unchecked others, but all options appears on the chatbox.
-------
Non parce que j'ai sélectioné certaines checkbox et déselectionné les autres et toutes les options apparaissent sur la chatbox.



Thanks for your support

Merci pour ton support

Problem is I don't have internet explorer => I am a Mac user.

But I think I have found what might have been causing the problem. Do you have the show whos online in the chatbox option active on your forum ?

1.1.0 Development status update :

As you can see from the first post, many new features will be included in the next version.

I think I'll stop there for the new features introduction and will start translating the new/changed phrases into english in order to launch the beta test phasis.
Unless you guys have some bloody hell ideas of new features that are not in the todo list

I'll ask, when it will be time to, for beta testers so that you can track the snitchy bugs that could be remaining.

One of the bug I would like to be tested is the PM popup problem. I think it's fixed but I need some users who were having the problem to test it (as I can't myself due to no internet explorer on Mac).

With the 1.0 version ?
No, with one previous version. I'm not using the latest one as it has some issues that may be quite annoying at times for the users.

Yeah but I don't have any board online. I think I did fixed it by the small correction.

Hum ?! The chatbox doesn't has anything to do with the js/downloader.agent virus.

I don't think the chatbox is causing that at all.

This virus is a downloader trojan inside a javascript file. But there ain't such thing in my mod... I think you have been infected by something else.
