Hello, thanks for this mod, it's working great but I got an issue :

When I click on a smiley on the list it's redirecting me to this page :
mysite.com/search.php?do=getnew&contenttype=vBForum_Post#chatbox

Only one specific smiley is making the issue, all other seems to be OK.

On the "more smiley" page when I click on this smiley it's not redirecting but it's not putting the smiley in the chat (while it's working good with others smileys)

code for this smiley is
:'(

=> javascript:insert_smilie_from_window(':'(')

I think it's not handling the simple quote ' properly.

Well this is a bug I think. I'll fix this in the next version.

Having a little trouble. The install seemed to go fine and I am able to see the chatbox, except I only see "Loading..." in the text field. I am not able to make a test post.

Running 4.2.1. Chrome. Anyone else have this issue?

EDIT - I'm also having the full page mode and "more smilies" buttons open up to broken 404 pages.

Try it in Firefox, it could be a chrome issue

I've noticed it was cpu intensive on unix boxes, but on the Windows Servers I run, it's not as bad... Probably has to do with the Admin (That's me!)

Try setting the refresh up higher.... I know there's quite a few settings you can change to limit the resources. Also the YUI can be offloaded as well under the options.

Change the settings, and list your processes and go from there.

Curious.. Does anyone use the pro version: MGC Chatbox Evo PRO v.3.3.0?


I am currently using version 3.2.3 and it's working flawless.. So I am hesitant using a newer version (Scared it might break something)

If you are using it (pro version).. Any issues? Any cool features? I don't quite understand all the new bot functions


Bot system with set of predefined trigger chat and corresponding answers and automatic bot chats [PRO only] <-- Like what is that? How is that any different?

This mod has way to many request at startup. Not sure putting 40 additional request on every page is something I want to do. I wish there was a setting so I could tell it to only load those files when the chatbox is loaded.
