VBDev (or others that may know),

My users use "New Posts" link a lot, but the chat box doesn't display at the top of the list of search results. Is there some template edit I can make so that the chat box displays at the top (right under the navbar) just like it does on Forum Home and Forums thread listings?

If I understand correct, you are wanting to add the chatbox to the New Posts / Today's Posts? That search itself is query intensive. Adding the chatbox to that is a sure resource hog. I would highly suggest not doing this.

I think the search templates themself need edited and "$mgc_cb_evo" added to it, but VBdev is the man to say for sure. I'm only guessing on the variable.

As for what needs edited, VBulletin.com or search here for edits to the searching templates.

Thanks for the feedback. That is indeed what I was thinking. But I surely don't want to do it if it's going to be a resource hog.

MGC won't be the hog here, but running the searches spikes the server usage on the dB etc. Adding the chatbox to that would realistically be pointless. I say this because what happens after you run the search? You either hit the back button, or click one of the results. Same with the whos online. Who's online refresh automatically so that would add a huge usage if a user sits there and replies in the chat while the who's online keeps rereshing.

I agree with you for the search page.

However for the whosonline, isn't it ajax powered ? (I think so) In that case it won't be too server intensive.

That's why you are a developer and I'm just the peon trying to help answer the questions.

2 things:

1. Where do I determine/change which words are censored in the chatbox? Is it the censored list from vbulletin?

2. My "Who's Online" seems to never be in sync with who is actually online. I have played with the settings quite a bit but it just doesn't make sense. People who are actively posting don't show as online...

1. Should be, but VBdev would know the final answer. Easiest way to check is censor something in VB and type it in the chatbox.

2. This goes off however many minutes. If they leave whatever page impression they are on, count restarts. I don't even base if off that on my servers. I just type and if others are there, they reply.

When I uninstalled, the permissions section in the usergroups did not go away. Now whenever I try to edit usergroup permissions, I get a database error. Why is this? What can I do?

Thanks!
