Provide support, leave the attitude somewhere else. Isn't this something that you guys are selling? Do you not get a cut of the license i just bought? What is this, slave labor? LOL

I didn't have to disable the noise. I added a different sound in .mp3 format and adjusted the js to reference the new sound/file extension. It's much better and doesn't sound like a 5 year old came up with it.

Anyway, I'm done. I've made my point and said my piece (and said what I'm sure several other here were thinking in the process).

Looking forward to 3.2.

What part of FREE support do you not get? I donate my time. If you want to continue to berate and look like a 12 year old with your replies, please do it elsewhere. The only point you have made is that you can't scroll up and read features to be added to the new version. Thanks.

Just upgraded to VB 4.1.9 and my chatbox keeps loading, and when I try to type I get "Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing." as an error. Ive uninstalled, and reinstalled and still get the error. Not sure what to do now.

As you can see, i did switched the background for my skin style.

Ok Ranger, my problem with the chat is that in the sub-forums section or showthreads, the whole chatbox is set under the tools and newthread button, announcement.

is there a way to rearrange this? I'ved attached a pic for a better idea

Ahhh maybe 3.0.0 is resource intense? That's what I am running.

Guess I'll wait for 3.2

The security token was a CRSF (don't remember exactly) but it wasn't chat related. You CAN search through the posts and I know there was a way to fix it.... But it's on your end almost certain.

Crap, that's a CSS styles issues. You'd have to go into the template itself and change things. And my patience with coding this week is at like -20. I guess you could compare the normal skin to the changed one and modify it.

Not sure if 3.1.0 was a public release. But I never had process issues. Are you on a co-hosted box?

That boing sound (annoying, I know) you can change by making your own. You'd have to do a conversion to swf but at this point, there is no multiple sound options. THAT is to be in a future release.

FYI, I just checked on my ifail (iPhone) and I can see my chat. I haven't checked on my droid, but more info is needed.

I can state for a FACT it works on IOS 4 and 5.

What version of android OS are you running? What browser? Have you tried "Dolphin Browser" for droid?

Let me know....
