*updated* Thx

Hello,

I've found a stange thing.

mgc3.png

If I go with the curser to the black marked place (at screenshot number: 1), there is no link.
But if i go to the green marked place (at screenshot number: 2) and click there, I get at the profile I wish.

So at the black marked place is no link, but in the green marked place.

This happens only at the latest shout. At all other shouts it is working well.

Any idea?

This is because of the input field under.

This is behavior that I can't fix.

vBDev,

I would be grateful for the IP command. As we allow our guests to post on the chat box, we often have spam on the shout box, and would love to be able to retrieve the IP address and ban them.

This would really benefit our forum!
Cheers,
LTC

I was hoping that the problem with the module was the same as the one causing my perpetual "Loading.." on vBa portal (page variable method). I was also considering using the module if I could not get the page variable method working, but I am not keen on the width restriction. Of course, I could not get the module to work either and I received this initial response from stangger5:

VBDev is still working out some bugs,,,should be close..
I deleted everything from scratch (losing all previous messages) and reinstalled again as a last resort - to no avail. Wit's end has come and gone. I am totally frustrated. My donation offer stands. Otherwise, I am off to install a less feature-laden but more stable mod.

I'll do this as soon as possible by the way.
Thank you, I'd appreciate it! And I'd be interested in the IP feature too.

As far as from the evo versions... I have updated from the first evo up through the current and the archives have stayed through each update (so have user settings.) Hope that helps

thanks adnedarn, since there is no way to upload the old archive to the new evo version - will it be possible to change(manipulate) the stats, my members are gonna hate me if the old stats are gone

I don't think you have understood the feature, I was speaking of a command that would return to the user who sends it it's ip.

This is not a problem of stability for your problem.

The problem is that you are certainly using vBAdvanced with the forum in a folder, so there is a problem of path.

I have tried to use a variable of vBAdvanced config files from within the chatbox code to have the right path but it seems that it's not working properly or it's not visible.

I think I'll try to take my eyes on that problem as soon as possible.

This certainly depends of the configuration you have choosen for the chatbox.

VBDev,

Thanks for adding my Feature Request. I wanted to ask you something else. Do you know why it is that the shoutbox doesn't appear while creating a new thread or post while I have it enabled to show in threads!?

For clarification, my vBa portal is in the root directory of my site, not a subdirectory. Stagger5 just released an update for the vBa module that now works. Though I vastly prefer the full width version as a page variable, I am content to use the module for now and wait out a fix for my preferred method. Thanks!
