But we get this error when you're watching the whois online when someone posts a message :

Edit the jquery.autocomplete.css file in the clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_add/css directory and replace :

And yes, that would be a very CONVENIENT feature in the next version if it's not too difficult to implement.

Keep up the great work!!
Thank you for your support, it's a pleasure for me to build up this chatbox.

I am however a bit unhappy that my chatbox is now relegated at the second place here But that how life goes !

Anyway I know have decided to take less time on vBulletin due to my daywork, the company I own with 2 friends and my personnal life. I will only continue developping the chatbox which is the product that has brought me the biggest fun time during development And you guys through your donations and encouraging posts have kept me on the road to bring this product at the level it currently is and I thank you for that.

It's was a philosophic post made by me lol

That sounds reasonable, VBDev. I'm low on funds right now, so donation will have to come later. But I did nominate you for MOTM, for what it's worth.

Keep up the great work!

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to reply and find the little bug.

I have changed said file but it is still doing it is there anything I need to do after changing the file like rebuild a cache or anything?

Thanks in advance.

Could you make a small drawing ?
The chat would be used as a little shoutbox (or greeting box whatsoever).
I give an example as attachment.

First line: Username (the X means Mods can delete this item)
second line: Date and time
following lines: Message itself

Best Reagrds,

Best Reagrds,
I see what you mean but that option would affect the chatbox display on all pages. Which is not very beautiful on the forumhome page for example.

Just - I've reworked some JS / IF conditions like:

<if condition="!empty($autocompletion_js)">
function mgc_cb_evo_autocomplete()
{
$("#mgc_cb_evo_input").autocomplete([$autocompletion_js]);
}
$(document).ready(function(){
mgc_cb_evo_autocomplete();
}
);</if>
Before the "IF" condition was inside the function and so created an empty JS function used for nothing.
Also about the Collapse / Show mode:

<span id="mgc_cb_evo_title_opened"
<if condition="$vbcollapse[collapseobj_mgc_cb_evo] == ''">
<else />
style="display: none;"
</if>
>
....
<span id="mgc_cb_evo_title_closed"
<if condition="$vbcollapse[collapseobj_mgc_cb_evo] == ''">
style="display: none;"
</if>
>
Got a CSS warning - specially about the first one - because the IF condition produced an empty:

style='display: ';
This fixes this
