something strange has happened after i upgraded to 0.4 from 0.2. All the permissions for my super mods on the forums are gone! all except delete... move, merge etc are all gone! i disabled the chatbox and the permissions came back...this is really weird as im running latest 3.6.10.

I also noticed that some chatbox settings arent showing, for example the Pm settings for the ban command arent showing at all.... can anyone help or have an idea whats going on? I've had to go back to the 0.2 version....

It's already been worked on. But if the fix isn't working for you, you'll have to wait until the developer returns from vacation.

TO FIX THE LOADING PROBLEM DO THIS:

Open mgc_cb_evo.php and mgc_cb_evo_ajax.php

find:


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

remove it and upload the files to your server.

That works fine for me.

On a fresh install, and then adding these files it worked. You = the man.

I have the shoutbox installed too. So I disabled the shoutbox plugin and then installed the the Chatbox but it does not show in the forum. I have five skins and two of them are updated at rev 3.7 but stil nothing....
These two: the shoutbox and MGC Chatbox could not co-exist?

Back to it not working on the one forum. It's buggy still as it works on some, and not others. It's definitely worth the wait because this developer does respond and takes a lot of advice and uses it... So I'll stick with him for now.
