Can anyone help me understand why something like this doesn't have the ability to be coded for a forum sidebar block?

I don't think there's any reason why it couldn't. Valter just either doesn't have the time or inclination to do so.

I don't know about that. Seems like if it were simple to do, it would be a feature that these types of chat solutions offered as an option in Admincp.

Would it be possible to ad the option to sort by most used word?
For no reason apart from humor.
My site has well over 100k shouts and the more stats i can pull the better.

Has anyone else had an issue with their forum being hacked while using this mod? My forum has been hacked and defaced twice in two weeks and the hackers claimed the chatbox was how they got in. I've since deleted it and have had no further issues, but I miss having a chatbox. Just wondering if there was a known security issue.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Yours is the first report of a possible problem. Are you sure you were running the latest version?

Odd the hackers would be so nice as to tell you how they were getting in so you could lock them out. That's not normal.

I kept seeing "guests" in my chat when they had no perms to get there. I checked it and they got smilies. But I was getting a lot of db errors on 4.1.9 and saw your post, so I uninstalled and installed the MGC Chatbox Evo and it's working.

I'd rather not take a chance with hackers. Too scary for me.

This is a different subject - seeing guests in chat when they don't have permission is probably a settings issue, not an intrusion. I have no idea what you mean "they got smilies".

I can think of lots worse things to be afraid of than hackers. Like driving. Or walking on a public street. But assuming you're doing your due diligence as an admin and have automated current backups the worst that can happen from hackers is some downtime.

I have been running this mod for years now.
Must admit my forum would be lost without it.
I am quite concerned about this as i imagine others are.
It appears there is only one confirmed hacked forum thus far.
Oh how i hope this is an isolated incident
Will be watching this thread very closely.

I just installed this, and I cant figure out how to get rid of the "new" message that appears beside the messages. When do they stop being new? Can I mark them as read?

Q: My chatbox recently start getting stuck on the FORUMHOME page (on the loading screen). Nothing ever appears except the word loading. If you click on Chatbox Full and load it that way, you are able to see the msgs and chat like normal. When you go back to the FORUMHOME page, it then loads and functions like normal. Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue or if this is something that has been addressed previously.
