Don't have MSN. And as mentioned I have no idea what would be causing that, not sure what you want to discuss (and in private at that)?

Try reuploading all your clientscript files^

And for anyone getting security token errors here's how I fixed it.

Go to your templates --> Edit cyb_chatbox ---> Search for:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:

I've got a problem.

The clock at chatbox does not work at all!

Instead of a specific date and hour like 11-05, 19:57 and so on there is just a plain format [d-m, h:m]

I need some help guys.

I am having a problem with the Cyb-Chatbox when I put it in the footer of vB. It works fine all other pages except Photoplog.

When it loads in Photoplog it loads all the HTML but none of the actual functionality. I have attached two screen shots to show the difference.

Any ideas? I tried adding it to the global variables in photoplog too.

I also get the continous "Loading...." problem. For some reason, if I go into the AdminCP, then everthing works again. God knows why logging into the AdminCP clears the fault and gets things going again....

Has anyone ever figured out how to fix this problem? I have reinstalled it many times and it still shows the fault.

I installed this about a month ago and am just getting around to saying that it works really well. Installation was a snap. Thanks, and sorry for the delay.
