VBDev,
Will you be issuing an updated version that will include all of the fixes I have been reading about in the thread. I want to install this on 3.7 gold, but I would rather wait until there is an updated version with all of the fixes. Thanks.

I will provide an updated version this week to fix the channels not appearing issue which is the last issue remaining in the current version.

Issue in Text Area

We installed this and works fine..

Not to sure on what the command files are and where they go, the instructions arent that clear.

Also when chat window launches. We get: Entrez Votre Chat >>

Even tho we installed english version lol

Any ideas where we can edit this please.

Ste

Managed to fix the issue.
Edited Product product-mgc_cb_evo

Searched for Entrez Votre Chat and changed to Type Here



After a few refreshes we are noticing an error in XP and Firefox.

Command files are clear. Read them. Simply goto the commands thing, import that xml in the commands dir pertaining to which you want installed. Done.

Default chat message is in French. Simply go in, change that default message to whatever, or disable it too. I disable it.

To Change/disable ---> AdminCP ---> MGC Chatbox Evo ----> Chats Formatting

Bottom of page. Message to display in the input field...

I created different channel but asks for commad. Anyway when I wll check it more I'll come back with more details.

Now I found another issue. I have put for Reggister User Group to be able to see the Chatbox if they have atleast one post. I had a member that I was using for testing with one post. The Chatbox was not displaying until he did one more post.

So I assume that it checks the posts that the users do after the installation of the mod

If so I believe that is not correct. I have members that have more than one post but maybe they will not post for some days.

Can you please check it out??

Thanks,

John.

Becareful there are two usergroup permissions one for the number of posts and one for the number of posts per day !

This is perhaps the number of posts per day that you have set no ?
