The commands imported fine for me, but I also added the .xml files to the /includes/xml folder, not sure if that made any difference.

Also, I want the chat box to display when I click on "New Posts" so it shows above all the new posts too. Where would I need to place the command for that? Thanks for an awesome mod!

It imports just fine, but go to "command options" in the admimCP of this chat. You'll see its empty.

You also have to import each individual command .xml file in the commands manager. Browse to the folder for the command you want, and import the.xml file from the command manager with the chatbox admincp.

Go to the usergroups, and enable so that you can see it. Its set on "no" as default on every usergroup.

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
Hum question: Have you imported both two chatbox products (the normal one and the one for commands) ?

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?
No it's normal that the product is empty ! It's in order to avoid the commands to be imported again after each new chatbox version (way to deal with the way vBulletin is coded on the mod import part).

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

You can already specify restricted accesses for channels.

You don't need to put them in the includes/xml directory

You have to set it so that it shall appear under the navbar on all the pages and add SEARCH in the pages list.

You haven't followed uninstall instructions correctly !

You should have removed files before removing the product.

Import the product again and follow correctly uninstall instructions.

The 0.4.0 as it states up top that's newest. No, it doesn't as long as your server is not a calculator.

Hi...Great hack but I cant seem to get it to work!

I've installed it and imported the command xml's. I can see it on my forum, I have 7 icons for smilies, ok, empty, bb code, rules, help and full page mode but shouts dont post and I can't see where private/team channels are. I created a team channel in the admin cp but it didnt show up.

I think i have gone wrong somewhere when I installed the commands php / js but i'm not sure.

I've set the refresh to 45 seconds.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks
