You all say that it is not the mod that caused my problem, yet that is when it happened. I do not want to debate the issue. The problem still stands. I cannot uninstall this mod through the ACP as the buttons do not work.

How do I remove the changes that were made in my database via mySQL commands? Since there is no url command line uninstall, the DB may be my only other option.

Ideas?

Open the product xml file, you will have the sql queries to run upon chatbox uninstall.

Is it possible that my styles folder is somewhere else? I am using the default style for now to test out mods before I attempt them on a custom skin.

I do not have /images/styles..so I copied the folder 'images/misc/mgc_cb_evo to a folder I created in my images folder.

After I install per instrucions, I still do not get the chat to show up on my forums. I even tried the instructions for installing if you have a skin that isn't compatible, but this shouldn't be the case since it is the custom skin. BTW I have vb3.7 and I downloaded the chatbox 4.0.

Any help would be great.
Thanks

Okay I just set the usergroup permissions and still didn't work. I think I will try and reinstall it later tonight. I'll let you know how it went

But about the images/styles folder...are we meant to create that folder, or should the styles folder already be in the images folder?
Thanks

No no the content of the image directory shall be in your images directory if you have only the default style.
