The product totally messed up my admincp. I deleted the files, uninstalled the plugin but this still appears in my Usergroup Manager:



Just a blank menu instead of the regular MGC Chatbox menu. Now, when I try and save new settings the following error comes up:

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'mgc_cb_evo_permissions' in 'field list'
Error Number : 1054
Request Date : Sunday, July 13th 2008 @ 03:26:59 PM
Error Date : Sunday, July 13th 2008 @ 03:26:59 PM

It is basically trying to save to a column that doesn't exist, since I removed the mod. There's a temporary solution - I basically re-imported the product and disabled it, and then everything is just fine.

Any permanent solution from the author of the mod? Please help!

(please note I'm only uninstalling this because I dont feel a chat box is right for my forum, the product itself worked just fine)

please help, I'm freakin out

You must carefully follow these steps if you don't want to screw up your forum when uninstalling the chatbox.

1/ Uninstall all the commands you had installed on the forum
2/ Remove the chatbox files from your forum directories
3/ Uninstall the MGC Chatbox Evo product
4/ You're done with the uninstall


I went straight to step 2 because I had no commands installed.
just a note for everyone....

you must uninstall the xml FIRST, remove files SECOND. otherwise the forum will crash.

it appears as if the error is no more!

However, now I have other issues.

When i use firebug, and I go to the full page chat box, I see the following:

vB_AJAX_Handler.prototype.fetch_data() is deprecated. Use responseXML.getElementsByTagName("x")[i].firstChild.nodeValue instead.chatbox.html (line 34)
POST http://forums.fluxmedia.net/mgc_cb_evo_ajax.php 243ms
Every time it refreshes.

Also, when I type a response, I don't see it come up. in fact, it's almost like there is not chat box visible, just the back ground.

Main errors that user do are not setting usergroup permissions or following the style issue fix as some of you have totally customized styles which contains missing var used for automatic chatbox insertion in templates.

I am pretty sure I did, are you sure you updated the files on your ftp ?

Yes I know that, it's not a bug as It can be used and shall work. I think that it works if you don't have firebug active ?

Thanks in advance.
Can you explain me exactly the problem coz it doesn't seem to be very clear to me.

What have you done exactly ? What's going wrong ?

Please give details, a simple phrase is not enough to imagine what you did...

Why have you done that, this is not what you should do at all !

If you are having a tokensecurity issue with the chatbox for ensure that you have a vBulletin version greater than 3.6.10 or 3.7.0 Gold if yes then check that you don't have modified templates that need to be reverted.

Otherwise, follow the instruction on the readme.

You have to uninstalll things correctly... There is a readme please follow it !

You were supposed to remove the files and then uninstall the xml and you did the contrary this is why you get that error.

I've tried this in IE7 and FF3 and I cannot see any responses to what I've typed.

I type something, hit enter, and nothing shows up.

So...after months i decided it was time to uninstall the old MGC and move to EVO.

I did uninstall everything before installing... now, i installed EVO and it seems everything was wonderful... then set my permissions as admin to do whatever i want.

Now, I go to theforum to test the new chatbox, type my message... and click ok.

Nothing Oo

Another try... and another, nothing is shown in the chatbox. Then i checked the archives, nothing there.

I went to verify my sql tables, there are vb_mgc_cb_evo_channel, vb_mgc_cb_evo_chat, vb_mgc_cb_evo_command, vb_mgc_cb_evo_command_code and vb_mgc_cb_evo_session.

No message was saved on them... what did i do wrong? u.u

I'll start reading the whole 135 pages ^^'

obmob - I've run into the same issues for some reason.

Hopefully we'll find some others as well so we can figure out where the problem lies.
