It's a conflict with another plugin, I (and many others) have had the same problem. page back a page or two on this thread and you'll see a list of things that have been identified as causing this issue.

Once I disabled the mod that was causing the issue, it started working fine.

I think things like that is something the author is working on. But just having it simple and working is really all we need :-)

I installed the mod in my VB4 test forum.

Now my home page with the GCBOS chat open and enabled keeps "refreshing" indefinitely. About every 30secs (+/-) there is a request going from my browser to my server.

With hundreds of visitors in my forum I can imagine a major performance impact. I currently use "Cyb ChatBox" on my VB3.8 production server with no major performance impact (or at least its manageable). With Cyb ChatBox I can configure a timeout when a client is considered no longer active and no new chat entries will be delivered. A user will time out and I as admin can control it. I also restricted Chat access to only registered members to lower overhead.

How does GCBOS work? Will it time out? Can I configure it? Imagine all the users that walk away from their computer and leave my forum home page open.

Performance is important.
