Umm a few bugs I have found, the "smilies" is under the text editing options. Also in the Chatbox archive I only see half the header. If it's also possible to move it below the "Welcome to UnlockedGamer" thing, I don't know what it's called but you can see in in the images.

Images to show you exactly what Im seeing.

when you use /me you must type something after for it to work, please make it so just /me shows the username alone???

and also it is supposed to not show the username of who is doing /me next to the timestamp!

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare vsacb_userexcluded() (previously declared in /home/xxxx/public_html/packages/vbcms/controller/content.php(84) : eval()'d code:13) in /home/xxxxx/public_html/packages/vbcms/controller/content.php(84) : eval()'d code on line 13

This happens if running the CMS and promoting a post to article.

Great mod, many thanks for updating it to v4

One thing, I can get the chatbox to display on vBAdvanced Portal page using the 'THIS_SCRIPT' method, but when I tried to position it manually using the '{vb:raw vsachatbox}' system I had no success.
I really only want to display the chatbox on the portal (home) page, but between the two side columns, NOT above them.
Any suggestions please?
