same happens in the vb4 ver
I am having similar issues with this.

We do reverse order and the chatbox starts halfway back up and by the time you scroll down to read the newest messages it auto-refreshes and sends you back halfway up the chatbox

For those of you having issues with it not showing up in the ipbarcade.

open file /root/arcade/functions/functions.php

1) Search for:


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

2) add right below:


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

3) Save & Upload.

Cyb's mods are GOLDEN, so I knew there had to be a way to get this thing to work. Definitely pleased! Re-clicking Installed.

Spent too much time on this. Although it's a great mod, I will look for something easier to place on pages.


Can't find anything better than this....................please I need help in adding the chatbox to my Arcade page.

For the life of me I can not remember how I got it to work on the Arcade on one of my sites.
I have it working on others without using "$cybchatbox" in the arcade template or editing php files. Yes I set "THIS_SCRIPT" to arcade but wont show on the arcade page.

I posted here a long time ago how to get it to work on the arcade page. Seems this thread has been cleaned up quite a bit & I seem to have no post on 3.7 & 3.8 chatbox threads...


Would you please share what you did to get it to work on your arcade page?

No, it does not show on any style on the arcade page.
I only use chatbox in the arcade as I have for a few years.
Not sure why its not showing, thanks for your time.

I've had this installed for years without any problem. However, over the past few weeks it's made our forums unusable. Here are the symptoms.

- The Chatbox will get stuck on "Refreshing Messages" after a few seconds

- Only about half of messages posted in the Chatbox will actually go through

- The entire forum is noticeably slower when the Chatbox is enabled. Opening pages takes longer and many pages will just hang loading constantly.

I haven't changed anything on either our forums or server setup before it started playing up. I literally woke up one morning and it wasn't working properly. Since it's started having problems, I've reinstalled it twice. Both times it started working incredibly fast again for a few minutes but then it went back to crawling after a few messages. It was running on the default settings. I've even reinstalled the servers OS just to get it working again but with no luck. I've reinstalled Apache, MySQL, PHP and Xcache but nothing changes. At first I thought it was because the chatbox table was getting to big but reinstalling it proves that isn't the problem.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it? Our members heavily rely on the Chatbox and everyone feels a bit lost without it. I don't want to use an alternative as this one has been so good to us for so long.

I hope you can help me.
