Check the configuration of your style to see where the misc directory for the style is, images are probably not in the right dir.

After I upgraded from 0.5 to 1.0, the chat box doesn't load on my vBulletin 3.7.3 Patch Level 1 version message boards. What gives?

You have to follow the uninstall instructions of the readme file correctly

All the links into sql will thus be removed.

Check that you have correctly uploaded all the files and that you haven't any chatbox templates modified.

Hi guys !

First I want to congratulate VBDev for this great hack, it's nearly perfect !

Nearly because I noticed a little bug : after the installation, I couldn't access to my forum. After many search, I find the source of the trouble : with Firefox (and Opera also I think), people who belong to an additional group can not access to the main page of the forums. Indeed, there is this alert :

Encoding contents error
I permit to translate my post in French, because my English is so bad and because I know that VBDev is French

--------

Après installation, je me suis rendu compte que sous Firefox (et sous Opéra aussi je crois, si mes souvenirs sont bons), un membre appartenant un un ou plusieurs groupes d'utilisateurs additionnels ne pouvait pas voir le hack, le message d'erreur suivant apparaissant :

Erreur d'encodage de contenu

La page que vous essayez de voir ne peut être affichée car elle utilise un type de compression invalide ou non supporté.

La page que vous essayez de voir ne peut être affichée car elle utilise un type de compression invalide ou non supporté.

Veuillez contacter le webmestre du site pour l'informer de ce problème.
Ce soucis est assez gênant tout de même.

------

Thanks in advance


[EDIT] I have found a second bug : the unselection of checkbox to not display the choice of the font, the color and the size and the buttons for put the text on bold, italic and underline is ineffetive.

--------

J'ai trouvé un second bug : la non-selection des checkbo pour ne pas afficher les listes déroulantes permettant le choix de la police, de la couleur ou de la taille et pour ne pas afficher les boutons pour pouvoir mettre le texte en gras, en italique ou en souligné ne fonctionne pas.

Please try uploading files again.
Re-uploaded the files but has made no difference, still page not found.

Check the addon at the bottom of the first post. The is a mod which allows you to use the chatbox with vBAdvanced. Not sure if this is what you are after.

Hi, i've installed MGC ChatBox Evo on vBulletin 3.7.3 and past some chat messages when i refresh the page my chatbox area says "Loading... " and nothing else.
All users have the same problem in my forum.
Also when i intent to write a message i receive the next error:

"Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error."


Thank you

Ths hack is very very good!!

See this thread: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=268862

It explains how to fix the error. Hope this helps.

That has nothing to do with it. You have to remove all the uploaded files. This error is because you still have the bitfield file in /includes/xml folder and consequently still have the mgc_chatbox options field in your groups settings. Remove that file and everything will be fine. If you have one of the lattest versions of VB the bitfield rebuild will be auto, if not you will have to do it your self.

I have never experienced such problem.
Does your server has a specific/strange configuration ?

Je n'ai jamais eu ce problème.
Est-ce que ton serveur a une configuration spécifique/bizarre ?

I am not sure that you did use the good checkboxes. There is one group to avoid users to select them as default parameters in their usercp and the other to just allow the bbcodes. I think you misunderstood the text and did the contrary.
--------
Je ne suis pas sur que tu ais sélectionné les bonnes checkbox. Dans l'admincp, il y a la possibilité de choisir les paramètres que les utilisateurs peuvent sélectionner par défaut dans leur usercp et également la possibilité de choisir quels bbcode sont utilisables par les utilisateurs. Je pense que tu as mal compris le texte et fait l'inverse

Can you send me by pm :
  • URL of your forum
  • Admin account on your forum
  • FTP accesses
So that I can try to check that out more deeply ?

Are you using the latest version of the chatbox ? Earlier version of the chatbox aren't compatible with the 3.7 due to token late introduction in the vBulletin code.

Otherwise you shouldn't get that error message as it's now corrected since 0.3.0 I think.
