Thanks for ideas...keep them coming...

Edit:
I have an update...I have been using Firefox so I tried it in IE and have found that with IE the chats do not display at all..the second screen shot is IE.
What you changed was not part of the chat. It was a template. Revert.

I realize it was not part of chat...I changed some CSS not a template. If I try to revert the default style templates (which doesn't work either) it says "nothing to do"

Whatever changes YOU made, you have to undo. The results of it doing what it's doing are because of you. Undo those changes.

It's not the chatbox, it's the files YOU changed.

But I didn't change any files today all I did was change the font color for .vbmenu_control in a style other then default. I made absolutely no changes to the default style yet it is effected also.

The only modified php file is class core and that was done a few days ago.

You keep stating you changed stuff elsewhere.

If that's the case, uninstall the chat, remove the files, reinstall and it will work. If it doesn't....it'sbecause you changed something else.

Stupid question regarding other channels. How do I get the image to show?

I have tried everything I know with the following statement:

Name of the channel image
Don't put the file extension nor the sel/nosel/new suffix.
The images must be uploaded in the images/misc/mgc_cb_evo/channels folder.


And can not seem to get the image to show.

Thoughts?

Thanks for your help.

I've followed the uninstall instructions exactly and I still receive usergroup permissions. The reason I'd like to uninstall this product is because I'm receiving usegroup errors. I was having the same problem with cyb chatbox which I eventually properly uninstalled which resulted in no usergroup errors.

I need help uninstalling this product properly since I receive usergroup error.

-------------------------------
Uninstall instructions :
-------------------------------

You must carefully follow these steps if you don't want to screw up your forum when uninstalling the chatbox.

1/ Remove the chatbox files from your forum directories
2/ Uninstall the MGC Chatbox Evo product
3/ You're done with the uninstall
Here is the error I get...

Hmmm - are really all files removed and the uninstall did it without any errors ?

The:

`mgc_cb_evo_permissions` = 'Array',
`mgc_cb_evo_nbmsg_show` = '0',
`mgc_cb_evo_nbmsg_perday_show` = '0',

colums shouldn't be there, also a query that produced your error message "mgccustomusergroupperms" shouldn't be made any longer.

To compare, download the version you've used again to see if really everything has been removed.

Yep I've done that and still errors. Is there a manual way to correct this? My board is suffering since I am unable to make usergroup changes or additions.

Thanks

I'd love to keep this mod but I receive white pages on thread replies. The previous version of mgc chatbox I installed, non evo one was also riddled with loads of white pages, this one not as much but I can't afford to have white / blank pages on my forum
