I am running vb 3.7 RC4, when after upgraded to 0.4.0 my chatbox stopped working <_< it's just displaying "loading.." for infinite period of time.

I then completely uninstall the chatbox and then again done the clean installation, but still it's showing the damn "loading.." message, and the shoutbox never get loaded completely.

And If I'll remove the following line from the php files:

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

then it start to gives those weird security token errors :S

Sending the same messages again and again is not constructive

Question:
Is it possible to have it so that a persons text colour in the chat is the same as what their usergroup colour is? (the username appears in the colour)

or to be able to save some personalised settings for the chat so you don't have to choose the colour you want with every single message?

Thanks.

I have tested my last version on a clean 3.6.10 and it just works perfectly so it should work too on 3.7.0 RC4.

Have those of you who encountered problems emptied their cache and replaced old files by new files ?

Did a fresh upgrade to Vbulletin 3.7 rc 4 and did a fresh install with 0.4.0

I have been fighting with the blank chat box issue and read through 75 pages of posts looking for an answer, but in the end I downloaded 0.3.0 and replaced the two main php files, and it works now....

Dunno why but it does....

Thanks

I will try to sort out a fixed version (without the CRSF protection removal that stangger5 suggested which is not security oriented ) before I leave for holidays.

Actually I did all this already, even I tried it from a different PC, but it's not working properly with vb 3.7 RC4! if I remove this define('CSRF_PROTECTION', true); line from the PHP files then in vb 3.7 RC4 it start to give the following error:

I am sorry but unless you are doing it wrong it should work inferno

I have been able to test it on a vbulletin 3.6.10 which should be similar for this part to the 3.7 RC4
