WooHoo!
So basically if i want it to show on all pages i have to pay for the "full version" I thought it was meant to work on this download aswell?

I have tried again all mentioned and it still wont work wondered if it was anything to do with the skin i was using that wouldnt allow it, i am using

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=216445 for my site!

If i can not get it to show on all pages for this skin i may have to look for a different chat box or consider purchasing the BF version even tho that should really be stated in the write up that it will only display on the main forum page unless you purchase the other version, that way people wouldnt try so hard to get something to work when its not going to!

The same way they have explained. I would suggest you make a screen shot of your settings and post it here for people to see.

Bugs were reported by the BF owners so now I have to correct them. But I haven't got back to the chatbox since my return from holidays. I am busy on other stuff.

But I'll try to get on it this week.

under their chatbox. Is there a setting that I am missing that enables this? Thank you for your time.
Yes that is ! It's the whosonline in the chatbox feature.

lol no easy guy

If that is not in 2.3.2 it might be because of a bug which has been corrected in 2.4.0 version.

The 2.4.0 version has only been provided to the BF owners for the moment and I am waiting for it to be bug free before releasing the non BF version here so don't worry it's not something to force people to buy

VBDev.. Possible that your chatbox can have its own word replacement feature? All words being filtered on the forums also effects the chat box. How ever, the Replacement Variable Manager doesn't work on the chat box. Would be great if we can replace our own words on the chat box, rather than it being filtered to a single word all the time.

I have tried every setting mentioned here and this still wont show on my arcade page, i have checked and double checked to make sure i follwed the instructions properly, i then even got another vb owner has been in and done the exact same settings for me again (he installed the chat box originally for me) and he cant get it to show on the arcade so guess i just cant have it in there by using this mod from you!

Why are some of my phrases still in french... I tried the instruction twice. Some of it is in english but the admin cp options are in french and in the fourm, when my pointer hovers over the image it shows a french phrase.... Really confusing..

edit also i am missing the buttons on the left side of the chat box. In addition is their a tutorial for this.

Also where does it tell how to make channels. I might be becasue i am missing some buttons. Also user note.. I changed the directory of adminCP so i manually uploaded files to correct folder. Would this affect my install at all.

Thanks..

When in doubt reinstall.. pretty catchy... that fixed all my problems

VBDev - Any plan to make a CDP Plugin for your chat client to integrate with VBxperience? Perhaps points for each chat? Theres detailed instructions on writing the plugins included with Vbex but I'm not so much a php developer.

Thx.
