You may edit messages by double clicking on them (If you have permission to do so), delete messages by clicking on the '#' in front of your messages, send a user a private message by single clicking their name, or speed up/slow down the speed messages are typed at by pressing the 'up' or 'down' arrow keys on your keyboard.

It was suggested to me by a friend that this might be because the MySQL packet size on my server was set too high (32MB). Set it down to 16MB, but this didn't really do much. Any other suggestions on how to alleviate this?
I have know idea whats going on there since this version of GCBOS (0.6) does not contain any hooks that touch thread's or posts it could possibly be another modification.


The none typing in 0.6 was done for a board i use a i didnt include it in this release, however i think i have a better method of disabling it and it will realesed soon.

or change {vb:rawphrase Shoutbox} back to {vb:rawphrase GCBOS} and then search your phrases for CGBOS and change the appropriate phrase.

the second is the correct way to do but either way will work.
That worked, thanks.

I don't have any other mods installed, so I think it's probably some interaction with the forum software itself. As you say, most likely having the shoutbox set to not type everything out on refresh will alleviate the problem, so I'll wait and try your next update. Thank you kindly for the reply!

Is there a way to turn it off? Please let me know, because it is displaying EVERYONE'S pms , basically spamming the chatbox, would be better if it could show who received pm, PRIVATELY, not to the public.

4), Chat box no longer works!

Why is the HTTP at front needed? I wish for people to use both http and https.. hence I removed the http. Any help, please! Third time I'm asking, and no one replies to my question.
Still waiting for a reply regarding this.. Would be very helpful.

So... how much stress can this potentially put on the forums? Is this really resource heavy if a lot of folks are in chat?

When I changed ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 my forum got completely messed up. Can someone help me via PM?

I am now frustrated with this mod, as I just spent 3 hours setting up my new vb 4 forum and I can't do nothing in my admin panel or anything.

God damn it.

I will pay someone a few bucks to successfully fix and install this for me. =/

Thanks,

When in the "who's online" area of the forum, it shows the users at "GCBOS". Is there a way to change this to say they are on the Chat Box instead of GCBOS?

I've noticed things getting a little slower at heavy load, but not bad at all...it seems to be fairly lightweight. There's no particular DB overhead either, as the shouts are not archived.
