I have...all permissions are fine.

The problem with this mod is there is no option to add a link to the navbar. This being vb 4.1.2, I'm currently at a loss for adding a link to the full-size chatbox in the navbar of the site.

I currently have the chatbox open, minimzed, on the forum home. However, I don't want that. I want a link in the navbar.

Any help with the coding?

If you edit the navbar template you can add a link.

When updating counters through the admin cp, it says that the process is complete, but just loops and I can't stop it unless I close the page in my browser. Links do not seem to work in the admin cp while it is sitting there looping.

Is this a bug? Is there a fix?

Problems with chatbox in IE (windows 7). I attaching screen shots from FireFox (first - all ok) and Internet Explorer (error in javascript). See on screens: http://img824.imageshack.us/g/99180681.jpg/


Its bug or maybe my server wrong configuration?

Its javascript debug:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

2

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This problem in IE is showing only when im logged in to forum.

EDIT
I found reason, when on my chatbox are /slap or /me then this error is turning on.

Maybe problems have connection with my encoding? im using ISO8859-2

Has anyone an idea why the chatbox keeps pruning chats every xx days? The prune is disabled in the AdminCP and I even disabled its cron job. So why is it still doing it?

I did install right now, on vB 4.x. I did choose english language. But in the Admin CP everything is in french. I don't understand any word in french, so i cant edit the settings now.

How can i change the admin CP language to English?


EDIT: Never mind, i did find it. It realy changes only the english language. But on my forum, we use Dutch as standard. So i just have to switch my forums to english.

Now i have to find out, how the chat wil behave for the members, as Dutch is the forum standard...

Now, the problems are bigger. In the admin CP everything seems OK, but what kind of possibility to place the chat on the forums i do choose, there is nothing to see...

No error message's, no any corrupted view, just nothing. As if i never did install anything. The chat is set to active, the permissions are set right. Help, pls...

Edit: even this i did manage by my own. I did not see, that there are also permisions to be set in the usergroup manager...

Still getting this on various pages, though chat seems to work fine:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Any ideas?

Did some searching and couldn't find anything.


I have chatbox enabled on all forums and pages but it doesn't show up on the search page/new posts page. Anyone figure out a way to do that?
