Could someone please help me with uninstalling this Chatbox.... Never imported the product itself, it is not showing up in my Products/Plugins. I changed the language settings and uploaded the files and images in my root. I am a bit apprehensive with the delete button and don't want to delete something and mess up my forum. Is there a search I can do in AdminCP to remove the contents of the MGC?

Thanks in advance...

Two questions please:

How do I get rid of the <> from around the username in the chatbox?
How do I get rid of the G button in the upper left? (I only want to use 1 channel)

Thanks!

If you want the Chatbox at the top of the Real-Time Threads/Posts, do the following...
  • Go in the admincp in the "Display and Position" options
  • Activate the option "Display the chatbox on defined pages of the forum in a variable" or the "Display the chatbox on defined pages under the navbar"
  • In the pages list, add "vaispy" and then save

Edit your vaispy.php file and find....

Directly under $navbar, add....

Save.

Reload /forums/vaispy.php and it should be at the top of the page.

I hope this comes in useful to someone.

There is no such file in my chatbox, are you sure you didn't say a mistake ?

About the database error please tell me or I won't be able to answer you.
