There are javascripts problem on your forum (if you look at the error consol).

These errors doesn't appear in anonymous mode.

You should first try to fix those errors which are messing up all javascript.

Upgrading from 0.4 (working) to 1.0.0, I got the infamous eternal "Loading ..." issue for the chatbox that appears on vBadvanced page. After tinkering with codes here and there, I successfully fixed the issue. What I did was, in plugin "Global variables of the chatbox", add line
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

After line
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Can the mod coder add this fix into next version?

Hmmm - may be a weird question but I would like to have the inner table where the shouts are display - the one with:

menu image arrow : date : time : username : chat

would like to make it transparent. I just can guess there's some global VB style used for table / tr / td / tbody or something else - would just like to overwrite it local by appending something like:

... style="background: none;" ...

Just - may someone point me please to the right line where I could add this ?

Thank you in advance

Yesh, it works on forumdisplay and showthread. It's only forumhome. Roxie had a similar problem in previous posts, but I haven't seen a solution to it posted.

Well i have another bug that i think it is not identified. After i delete one or more chats, after refresh (auto) chatbox shows a previous chat. Here two examples of what i'm talking about:

Normal image before delete


After delete


This after just one delete. If more chats are deleted more previous chats appear. Things go normal only after a entire page refresh.

I am sorry but that bit of code works for some but won't work for others.

I am saying that because this variable is used in the chatbox code to get the path to javascript files. And using the bburl option variable would lead to a path to javascript files using http//... which is recognize by some browsers as a security concern and stop the chatbox.

You have to edit the mgc_cb_evo table, chats are in the div with id chats.

Just to let you know, I have found the reason of the pm popup bug.

It's now fixed and will be included in the upcoming release.

For the beta testers : it's not corrected in your version so don't worry
