Tachy goes to Conventry = the built in admin "Global Ignore" feature on vbulletin. It's featured in the Vbulletin Options -> User Banning Options

Although, I think a /slash command for a "global ignore" in the chatbox would be just as useful and accomplish the same thing!

(Sorry for taking weeks to reply!)

Perhaps it's a problem of compatibility between thickbox and the chatbox javascript code.

I don't understand the need for such command.

To do a global ignore users could hide the chatbox, isn't that enough ?

Otherwise you shouldn't get that error message as it's now corrected since 0.3.0 I think.



See pedroenf answer above
I have using vBulletin 3.7.3 PL1 and MGC ChatBox Evo 1.0.0 (latest)
The problem is strange, because i was uninstalled the product, remove all files and rebuild the template, but when i reinstall step by step again the hack still with the problem

The security token problem no matter because i think the page not finish to load completely (maybe an infinite loop?) and i think that is part of the main problem "Loading..."

Note: the hack worked for a few hours at the first install.

My forum test is: http://www.gameland.com.ar/foro123

Thank you very much

How the hell does the commands work? I tried using the ban command and it just keeps saying invalid syntax. Is it /ban username or /ban : username ?? How is it supposed to be typed in?

I have tested on your forum. The problem comes from the language (spanish one).

Seems like it is bugged, you shouldn't have use it by the way, it's an old one...

Your chatbox works in english language. You should remove the chatbox and install it again then translate the chatbox from scratch.

For example, if you were banning me, you would type:

/ban on uname Netunt

Is there any specific command to time ban someone and an easier way to ban people as well? With a s/h/d/m in the end that stands for seconds, hours, day(s) or month(s)

/ban username 5d <-- bans for 5 days.
/ban username 0 <-- bans perm

If not possible, maybe then just this:
/ban username 60 <-- in minutes, so 60min = 1 hour.

and possible the unban command as well to make things easier:
/unban username

No there is no time banning. Currently it's Banned or Not that's all.

I can introduce a time period ban with 3 possibilities : hours, days or month. Which would lead to the following new commands :
/ban h 2 uname username
/ban h 2 uid userid
/ban d 5 uname username
/ban d 5 uid userid
/ban m 1 uname username
/ban m 1 uid userid

Would that fit to everyone ?

I won't change the syntax of the unbanning to unban instead of ban off, for three reasons :
- There is an help in the chatbox that states how to use the command with their syntax.
- If you activate the autocompletion feature, you are helped to enter the command.
- These commands are not much used and if used by only few users.

Ok, solved that problem
Now the ChatBox can be viewed and i can chat if i am anonymous, but if i logged to any user i only see empty content (in Archives i can see chats).
Anonymous, Members and Administrators groups have the same permissions on the chatbox (view, use) but i can only use the chatbox anonymously.

You can test with a Members group user

Thank you again
