Don't know if this helps, but it's bugging the crap outta me that I can't sticky something... If I goto mgc_cb_evo_chatbit_menu in the Style Manager you see below, but in Usergroup, there is no option for the sticky, or anywhere in the admincp in the MGC area either.

Hi sorry for my ignorance the other day i was having a bad day,

Im refering to this part of the HowTo

On some styles, it's possible that the chatbox won't show as the automatic insertion in the templates is based on precise variables which might not be present in your style.
If you encounter this problem, follow these steps (I will take the display at the bottom of the forum home as an example but you can easily adapt it for another location causing a problem) :

- Go in the Plugin manager of your admincp
- Edit the "Chatbox display on forumhome" plugin
- Replace : $search_text = '$forumhome_markread_script'; <- doesnt exist in the coding
- By : $search_text = '$chatbox_forumhome';
- Then, go into the Style manager and edit the FORUMHOME template
- Put the $chatbox_forumhome var before the $footer var

This is part of vBulletin, perhaps it's because you have a custom style ?

Installed the latest version on my 3.7 and it's displaying fine but it appears to not be working.

There is a continuous "O" circling round and round and when I try to type in a message and submit, it does nothing. Any idea what's up?

---edit

nevermind, i failed to upload two files in the main directory.

a suggestion. to have an easier pm system, cant u just allow ppl to click the peoples username and a window will appear and you will be able to talk with them directly instead of using commands. u know like on irc, u just double click the name and can just close the window with a X link
