I can't seem to find where you toggle off chatbox in mobile style. Where did you do this please since I have the same problem as yourself in the mobile version.

Thank you in advance.

If anyone is in the same boat as I was in terms of that mobile browser error you can fix it by disabling the plugin and then re-enabling it under your product manager page.

It shouldn't be calling the chat in the mobile style. Good catch.......

I'll see if I can replicate and I think the mobile style uses new functions so VBDev, I think if statements or something for the style might need updated.

How do I set the chatbox to be on for all users by default in the User CP? Right now when a user signs up it is off and I can't find where this option is to force it to default to on.

Read the readme included with the product. You know, that item explaining how to install it in the first place you had to read.

It's usergroup settings btw.

Problem removing

Hi

I'm having a problem with removing the chatbox, I seemed to of done something wrong when installing (fresh install) and now I have the following displayed above the top of the forum on the homepage.

Warning: include([path]/mgc_cb_evo/plugins/init_startup.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/init.php(336) : eval()'d code on line 1

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '[path]/mgc_cb_evo/plugins/init_startup.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in [path]/includes/init.php(336) : eval()'d code on line 1

Warning: include([path]/mgc_cb_evo/plugins/fetch_userinfo_query.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/functions.php(1855) : eval()'d code on line 68

I have removed the uploaded files from the forum and run uninstall from the Product manager, or rather tried to. It just goes to a white screen displaying the code that appears at the top of the forum home page.

Any help would be much appreciated

I do not see it in the user group settings or in the read me. I looked over both and did extensive searches before posting my question. I would appreciate it if you could help me instead of just throwing smilie faces at me and telling me to RTFM.

In this picture:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14824930/chatbox.png

I want the thing circled in red to default to yes when a new member registers. Currently it defaults to no.

The readme only covers basic installs and upgrades. The usergroup settings are numerous and as far as I can tell are set correctly. Can view the chatbox and Can use the chatbox are already set to yes.

So please enlighten me on what obvious truth that I am missing that you are already aware of.

Registered users is where you set it to display it by default. The option you are showing is AFTER they are logged in. That's after the fact, that they logged in. That's a UserCP setting AFTER their usergroup takes precedence. Hence USER selects. It's simple.

Reupload the files. Reinstall it, then read the README file and FOLLOW the uninstall instructions and you will be fine. You didn't follow them upon uninstall from what it looks like.

Glad to hear it's working. I've done that before and it was because I missed one simple step or file.

Not to mention doing it in the middle of the night and half asleep.

You should be fine now.
