Are you sure you uninstalled the plugin then removed the files too? Might need to rebuild the bitfields.

But I'm also wondering, because in the attachment, the french language was only for those option, for the rest is written in english.

Anyway, great works and thank's. My forum member likes it.
Yes that's odd but now it's working so I think we should consider this as solved

Just installed! Thanks for this!

I have a question though.. is there a way to change the direction of the way the chat flows.. right now all new entries get added from the top.. is there a way to have them added from the bottom so conversation entries flow up?

Thanks!

You did what? Reinstalled it?

How many times did you install, uninstall? Correct way is in the read me. Did you have MGC chat (not the evo one) installed prior?

Buddy, you really need to work on your replies, too vague.

If you uinstalled, then reinstall and then uninstall again. According to your reply, you didn't reinstall then uninstall as I suggested to recreate the tables and then remove them.

If you had MGC (non evo one) chat prior and didn't remove that, it might have caused an error....

This is why people need to learn to backup the database when they add ANY hack/addon... I take one weekly regardless of what's done.

Awesome mod.. I'm a new site but so far, ALL users comment on how nice it is.

I've read until my eyes were blurry though: Is there a /bell feature coming or anything to wake the dead on the other end?

Thanks no matter what. Superior Mod!

Hi,

About that bell feature, the problem would be that users could abuse from such a feature don't you think ?

Absolutely! /bell username is something I've actually used before and it get's a little annoying but, it can't be worse than the ringtones I hear constantly while shopping anymore! ; )
