Hope you had a good holiday! Mine is working fine now - i did the changes suggested by Stangger5 and everything is working well. We had "securitytoken" followed by a bunch of numbers after each chat for the first couple of days but that has mysteriously disappeared!! And the chatbox also mysteriously appeared on my Arcade page, which I had been trying to do for the past month!!!

I'm not sure what all happened, but its all working well now so we're happy!!!

1/ Check the command syntax I think you are using the wrong syntax.
2/ This has been reported, stangger5 has provided a fix while I was on holiday (see first post), I'll provide an updated version as soon as possible
3/ Do you have other issues with greek characters on other vBulletin features ? Like quick reply (the one using ajax !) ?

Problem with the greek language i had only by importing the language package, if you translate the phrases you can fix it(though you must speak french)
Wriiting greek in the chatbox was never an issue for me and i have a greek lang based forum

1) yes it was the syntax
2) channel are displaying.
3) from quick reply Greek characters work just fine. the problem is that does not displays anything and if I try to post another message in english I am getting the following error. "Error : A chat is already being processed, please wait." and I can not post a message until I refresh my browser.

I want to ask something more about channels.

For example I have a member that exist in two user groups. So I want to have separate chanells displayed. But the channel needs command and team command can go only to one channel. Is there any solution?

I imported English language into Greek and for now displays everything in English.

This is perhaps a problem of setting of the language which is perhaps not the same as the french one.

You can create your own channel with its own command through the channel creation system.
