All he has to do is type in the new option in the settings and change it... "Enter to chat".

Done.

Is there a way to enable this for all usergroups in one click? I was left with a mess of usergroups (hundreds of them) and going through and enabling the chatbox settings in each usergroup individually sounds like a bear.

Sorry to say, but this is why all the sites I run/manage/am hired to clean up, is the BIGGEST NO NO! Anything more than 15 groups and you can debate with me in the face until you have a chocolate bar come out the other end and you still won't win....

Cut your usergroups down....If you have more than 30, it's time to merge.

VbDev might know because my brain is fried....

MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A dB backup BEFORE you do any of that.

That should be a server setting !
Nothing to do with the plugin

I've got everything running well (pretty sweet little plug-in, nominated for motm), with one weird exception.

When users go to their usercp and click on "edit options" they get the following error.

Warning: require_once([path]/includes/mgc_cb_evo/class_display.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/profile.php(4553) : eval()'d code on line 8

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/mw3forum/public_html/includes/mgc_cb_evo/class_display.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/mw3forum/public_html/profile.php(4553) : eval()'d code on line 8
I wasn't aware that MGC did anything on the user options screen of the usercp. Any idea what's going on here?

Ok, this I fixed this by creating the "mgc_cb_evo" folder inside of the /includes directory and copying the class_display.php file (from the download, but in the mgc_cb_evo/classes folder) into there.

Not sure why those files were laid out in the wrong place in the upload, maybe because I'm using VB3 and the filesystem is set up for VB4?

Hi Vcize,

What you report is odd, the plugin attached to profile_complete :
"User option add in profile vB3"

is hooking to the profile.php file, no reason to have it point to includes directory.

Which vB3 version are u using ?

Someone actually got it working, I just can't figure out who/where it was after almost 500 pages here..

Stagger or someone was the one...

I know others on here (or VBDev) know...

I don't think VBDev has rights to do the CMS unless he codes it from the ground up or someone else gives him permission to since others already have made it for previous versions. Dev would know....

=================================

DUH......Just noticed this...
