Thanks for updating this, Dream, I was hoping you would since I have just upgraded to 3.7 and didn't want to use one of the other shoutboxes.

All working fine, for a demo (from a guest view) see in my sig, if the link is still there.

Question

Running 3.6.8PL2 here and when I type a message and click send, box grays out and nothing happens. Refresh button doesn't work either. Can't seem to get chatbox working at all.

Thumbs up

Damn my bad, thanks dream. What's the ole saying "if all else fails read the directions!"
I have a 3.7 test board setup and was going to install on 3.6.8 first and then 3.7.0
I guess it's obvious I installed 3.7 product to 3.6.8

Works beautifully with vB 3.7 Beta 4. Very nicely done, Dream. I love the simplicity and elegance of it.

Update: So, I have found a problem. I want to disable the Chatbox's use for non-subscribers. Subscriptions in vBulletin typically add a user to a secondary usergroup. However, if I prevent a primary usergroup from using the Chatbox, no matter what secondary usergroup they are added to, they are still prevented from entering text in the Chatbox.

Help!

I am not sure the refresh button works properly on this version....If I post a shout on one account and then, on another PC with a different accoutn press the refresh button, it doesn't bring the new shout up.

I've tried it with "get all new shouts" both enabled and disabled tono avail.

Because I use this on my own website, and it fits my needs. Also it already has a lot of features, and I don't wish to work on this anymore that is needed.

There are many different chatboxes to choose from too if you need more features. I don't think chatboxes should do and be so complicated as some are today though.

Hi Dream.

When I had this installed on 3.6.7 I managed to have it in the "Whats Going On" section, however for the 3.7 version I cant seem to find the template edits to place it there.

I know this is un-supported, but could you help please!

Thanks

Dave
