---edit

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

I don't understand, you mean having a separate window for pm ?

If yes then my answer is no I won't do that, this would be too much a full chat feature and too much effort to develop that kind of feature that I don't like.

When you did experience that problem is it on a clean vBulletin install ? I mean no other mod installed ?

I never said I won't fix it but it's just that I don't see how I could, I haven't that problem on any of the chatbox I have installed

So I don't see how I could find what's wrong without experiencing it... This is like searching a niddle in a heystake !

One question - I am having troubles with the team command.

I go in and put the check mark in the boxes for the usergroups that I want to be able to use the /team command - and click save.

When the page reloads it is not saving the groups that I added - for some reason the only grups that it saves are the Admin, Super Mod and Moderators - any other groups it will not save to the team command.

I am guessing that I am missing something - any thoughts?

I have a problem when installing, as it won't display on the main page. I tried editing the plugins as said, but while there are no errors, it still won't display on the main page even when said variable is inserted in the FORUMHOME template. Any way to fix this?

Certainly as bbcode are dedicated to the forum however this will need modifications to the chatbox if you want to make it work.

Admin > MGC Chatbox Evo > Manage Commands > Team Command > Edit > Usergroups allowed to use this command and I put a check in the usergroups that I want to access the command then click save and when the page comes back up only the groups that can use it are Admins, Moderators and Super Moderators. None of the groups that I checkd are saved.

Oops, I forgot that part. Seems to be fixed now.

Edit: Oh, and why isn't it default to be able to use it and such like? Because this can be annoying when you have like... 20 optional usergroups...

How do you unban someone from this mod? A mod banned another one as a test... and I don't know how to lift the shoutbox ban...

Edit: Never mind, it's a command. Should have also been a mod CP or Admin CP option though...

It's to ensure that admin do configure every usergroup features with great care.

It's not in the admincp nor the modcp because I wanted to separate the core of the chatbox from commands.
