I'm having a java script issue.

The drop down next to usernames in the chat box doesn't work. The links I am talking about are:

View *USERNAME*'s Profile
View all chats of *USERNAME*
Edit the chat
Remove the chat
Sticky this chat

etc

When I click them nothing happens and they all link to #mgc_cb_ev_top.

They work on the archive page just fine.


I have tried it on a vanilla style in case customizations were causing the issue but that doesn't seem to be it. Thoughts?

That's simple, just edit your usergroup settings in AdminCP.

Actually it does, it's on the bottom left of your page. I'm assuming because you have custom themes. Try it with an UNALTERED default VBulletin theme.

It's in the options part of the MGC settings in AdminCP.

Just look through them.

Don't forget to setup usergroup permissions too.

Just installed this(or atleast i tried to)

i put the stuff in the files folder(not the actual "Files" folder) into my root
i put the stuff in the images>>misc folders (not the actual folders) into the images>>misc under forum under the root.

it doesnt show up on my homepage.
i looked for everything on my user permissions but nothing was there for the shoutbox.

this is what i got when i went to the stylevars



i tried figuring out what it was but i can't. it looks like it says files are missing but i dont see how that would be right. idk.
any help is appreciated

Pretty straightforward
Only thing is, it doesn´t work very well. It shoots the formatting to pieces.

That REALLY looks like you didn't upload the files in the correct dir.

Whatever root of your forum is Upload the files FROM that path.

How do I get this mod to work on a custom skin/template? My default template is a custom one. I have messed with all the permissions and other options. I still can not get the chat box to show up. I have uploaded all the files and installed the product twice. The chatbox controls show up correctly in the Admincp. Just no chatbox on my forumhome page

i've already tried to unistall and reinstall the plugin, but still doesn't work. any solutions? Is that the php 5.3 version doesn't support it?

It's not PHP that's the issue. MGC's site is running PHP 5.3.

Enable php debug and find the errors.

Or use firefox error console and post the error.

We use the chatbox since we changed to vBulletin 4. Here are some feature requests:

- I would like to show a certain channel as standard-channel in a certain forum. Seems that this isn't possible, as the standard-channel always shows up first.
- We would love to setup channels in order to only have a certain amount of users in it.
- We would love to have the option to give voice to users. Right now everyone can talk who is in the channel. But this isn't so good if you would like to set up an interview-chat.

If any of this is already possible, please tell me how. I haven't been able to find anything about it.

Bugs:
- Seems that the archive doesn't properly display older chat-messages. We have almost 1.000 chatmessages, but I cannot display them:
http://www.comicforum.de/mgc_cb_evo....id=0&dlimit=-1
Version is 3.2.3 on vBulletin 4.2.0 Patch Level 2
- Seems that the display on other channels than the standardchannel doesn't work right, as it looks rather broken:
http://www.comicforum.de/mgc_cb_evo....id=1&dlimit=14
an analysis showed up that the CSS isn't loaded.
