I'm trying to disable this style on a pair of styles (Iphone and a fast loading text only style). But when I go into the Chatbox display on forumhome theres is no $search_text = '$forumhome_markread_script';. Has the plug in changed?

The new version is very light on the server load, far more than it used to be.

Yes it's possible through the use of a command or a periodic cron task or directly from the archives with a inline moderation removal tool.

You have to set permissions boy Check the command management tool in the admincp.

Did you install the 1.0.0 chatbox just when released or more recently ?

Coz there was a small mistake in the first zip file of the 1.0.0.

Hum then it should be ok.

Can you check your user table in the database to check if the mgc_cb_evo_banned and mgc_cb_evo_ignored field exists ?

Regarding the mysql-error with the ban-command: Creating the missing column 'mgc_cb_evo_banned' in your user table will fix this error

Question Hiding the "General" chat?

Is there a way to hide the "general" chat entirely, or from a specific user group? I'd like to give a specific user group access to a specific channel only. In other words, I wouldn't want that user group to see the "general" chat at all.

There could be another channel set up for all users to see, so the "general" chat could be technically hidden from everyone if it were possible to assign a default channel per user group.
