loll good to know for your temper bud!
Well, if you ever end up with a small idea on where to check for, let me know because i tried a few things and nothing changes the position in the sub forum sections.

Could probably be a conflict also with the hack for this reason tho?!?!

Cheers

See if it's fine in the default template. If it's not, then something else is causing it because on mine the default it is........ But the custom one I had to edit...

Thank you, I rather use this one instead of VSa.
Because this one has more options.

...same on my page! It's a great mod! The only issue I have is the missing sound notification if a new post is done. Iturned this feature on in the AdminCP but is isn't working. Maybe someone has an idea where to change settings or whatever......

The second thing is - does anybody has an actual German language file?

Thanks for your support!

German Language isn't translated yet. Any volunteers PM me...

As for the sound, make sure you uploaded it and it's in the right theme folder.

The sounds files are in \mgc_cb_evo\clientscript\sound in the zip file and that's where they should be on your server. It's only got 2 sounds. So you need to enable them in the admincp.

The sound files are on the server - there must be another issue. The sound is also enabled in the admincp - do you have a further hint for me? I do not use the standard style.....

Rick, I don't need a german translator

I have captainslater for german translation, he is doing it for me for years.

I must be losing my mind. I have used this mod for many years, now have a fresh vb4.1.9 that I'm trying to install this mod on and I can't get it to display (forumhome or forumdisplay, above or below). I have it activated, set each usergroup permissions, have it activated in my user settings. I've even reuploaded the product and files just to be sure but no luck.

I activated the full page chat to test, and that does work.

Custom style/template you are using that's not inheriting settings from the other?

And Clement, I didn't see a "German.XML" in the zip.

Nope, it's a fresh vB. Only "customization" I've done so far is install vBSEO. I disabled it just in case but no change. Also setting the chatbox to appear on every page under the navbar worked. Is there still a variable I could throw into the template, or was that only for vB3?
