If I attempt to get rid of the </if> to get the channels to work (temp fix), I'm getting this error on a custom theme:

The following error occurred when attempting to evaluate this template:

The conditional on line 122 appears to be missing its end tag (</if>). The template will not function properly unless this is fixed.


This is likely caused by a malformed conditional statement. It is highly recommended that you fix this error before continuing, but you may continue as-is if you wish.

The images are as you say misc/etc etc i was refering to the php script file that stores the location or the variable used.

I installed the program and everything SEEMED to work fine, but chat messages are not actually being populated to the chat window...they also do not show up in the archives.

I have attached a screen shot to show what it looks like. This is after I entered at least 5 shouts.

Edit 1: I have a clean install of 3.7 and this is the only product installed besides vbAdvanced. I have not ever had a prior version of this product installed.

Edit 2: It does say "loading" for just a few seconds, then that disappears.

have you set user group permissions to allow use of the chat this might be one reason

You perhaps haven't remove the whole if condition.

Then I'll have to modify it a bit, this shouldn't have removed all shouts when set to 0.

That is all it posts to the box.

Also, just to make sure that I hadn't done anything wrong on the install, I did a full uninstall and reinstall of the product and all related files.

It also never stops spinning the refresh icon and IE throws a javascript error

Line: 746
Char: 3
Error: '0' is null or not an object
Code: 0


If you want or need access to my server, just let me know...

Once it's removed, it purges from the db. I'm almost positive, so you can't recover something that isn't there anymore.
