Hi!

I really like the chat!
And as I understood the translation of the xml file is needed only for the admin CP. To translate the user interface of the chat I just need to change un peu phrases de Francais. Ce vrai?
So I wanna buy the full license. What is the procedure?

And btw, just curious, how does your chat function without a mysql database setup?

yoyoman.

Why is it saying chatbox then? & the script that its trying to hit is chatbox.php

I have been looking up the IPs of the offending parties and they seem to be google & MS bots. Do they search from cached pages.

Question

Hi! I bought the license. Waiting for activation

In the meanwhile, can you give me hint where do I modify the "rules page", the "help page" and other stuff that the users can see? I need to translate them to Russian.

Another modification can be causing the Chat to act up, again it does not mean it's the chat specifically although that does lead you to believe such... do you have vBOptimise installed?? If so disable it to see it that helps otherwise I had a similar issue with the chatbox AND users not being able to switch styles when I had done 4 styles for a new client and after tracking it down to vB Optimise I had to uninstall it completely before the Chatbox and the style changer would work properly. I like vB Optimise but some forums and other modifications do not get along with it.

Ok Ive been having many database errors and noticed that the chatbox has been eating up most of the resources. Obviously the chatbox does not show to unregistered visitors and the auto refresh in about 60 sec and its still a huge problem. BTW, im still running v2.3.2.

Anyway, I noticed that my mgc_cb_evo_chat database is about 40MG which is only half as small as the post database with over 200k posts. Im thinking could that be the problem? Do you guys delete old chats?

BTW, displaying avatars in posts, adds a few extra sql queries right?

fyi, "select * from chatbox" translates to "get every row from the table chatbox..etc", but there is no table in mgc chatbox evo called "chatbox" (it's tables are all prefixed by mgc_cb_evo_) which suggests the error is referring to another mod.

a suggestion: disable ajax (problematic ajax should be enough to disable) in vbulletin options and see if the utilization remains high. mgc_cb_evo_ajax.php always drives my load avg thru the roof by making a lot of database queries and disabling the problematic ajax seems to limit it.

It's 40 megs because you are not pruning your chat at ALL. So, when someone comes to the site, it loads a huge file keeping cpu usage high.
