Hello VBDev,

I have a little problem with the Commands Options.

I can import a command and this will be uploaded successfully:
chat_1.jpg

chat_2.jpg

But when I'll click at "Commands Options" then, I can't see anything.

Is anyone else getting a script error in IE 7 when using this?
I just updated to the latest copy and I get...

Line 57:
Char: 37
Error: Unterminated string Constant

If I disable chat, it goes away

Try importing the english commands xml file.

This is perhaps a problem of translation of the commands xml files.

Never experienced that problem under ie.

Anyone else experiencing that ? Have you tested it on different styles ?

Oh, look at the first screenshot... there you can see the path of the file i have imported:
EN\Ban\xml\mgc_cb_evo_cmd_ban.xml

So this was the english file...

Any idea?

Are you using last vBulletin version ? (vB 3.7.0) ?

I've installed it, awesome chat box! But, is there any way the box can be refreshed then a user has typed something new? This way, you can prevent tons of new messages in xx seconds. And I'll try the import.

EDIT:
He's right, I've installed the ban plugin for the chat box, but I don't see any commands through the command option menu .. It's empty. I am also using vb 3.7

Files from FR and EN Commands dir are little bit different. Example for Ban:

mgc_cb_evo_cmd_ban.php on line 9
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

mgc_cb_evo_cmd_ban.js on line 19
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

(both examples are availible in FR verson, but none in EN)

and also i don't understand the meaning of product-mgc_cb_evo_cmd.xml, its empty:


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

Maybe there's a problem?

Also, another small word error:
You haven't repescted the rules, thus causing your ban from the chatbox.
Repescted? Should be Respected .

And it is possible that you can set some channels to be viewed only be specific usergroups?
