I am not the author of this code sorry. A chatbox user here gave it to me.

I don't know vBSeo custom rules at all so I can't be of any help sorry.

What I'd like to do is allow my users to determine whether the chatbox displays above threads, above forums, or just on the forumhome, on a per-user basis, by the same sort of settings.
That's an interesting suggestion ! I am putting it in the todo list.

This won't be in the release I am gonna release this month but perhaps in the one of July.

This is perhaps a problem with a difference of CSS interpreter in the different browser.
Is this really a problem ?

Does anyone know why it constantly tells me, "Loading..."?

You have a vBulletin version older than the 3.6.10 or 3.7 Gold.

You have to apply the fix explained in the readme of the chatbox !

VBDev, to explain my second bug better.. If you add a new usergroup and you set them so they can ban people with the ban plugin. You are getting those errors I have shown you. They seem not to have the rights to use /show ban command at all, they get "you don't have access" page, etc.

Also, is there a way you can remove ALL chats with a single button? It took me 20min to remove over 2000 lines of chats.

VbDev,

As I mentioned before, I'm also getting that continual "Loading" message when using the vBa CMPS module for MGC Chatbox. I've installed this addon on at least 2 other vb sites that are running 3.7.x and vBa 3.0.1 and they work fine with the CMPS module. Last week I did a fresh install of a 3.7.1 PL1 site and while the addon works, I can't get the CMPS module to work. Ranger187 was able to determine the following error:

Security Error: Content at http://www.talkmarylandforum.com/ may not load data from http://talkmarylandforum.com/mgc_cb_evo_ajax.php.

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Access to restricted URI denied" code: "1012" nsresult: "0x805303f4 (NS_ERROR_DOM_BAD_URI)" location: http://talkmarylandforum.com/clients...?v=371 Line: 7]

I just upgraded to 3.7.1 PL2, however this has not fixed the issue. I wasn't expecting it to fix it, but I thought I would mention what I have done since. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Jim

Edit: Would something in the .htaccess file cause this? The reason I ask is I just installed a new addon that required some changes in this file and the CMPS mod started working. I went back and maded a few more changes, now it's not working again.

Hum but does this new usergroup is a secondary one ? I mean, is the user belonging to one usergroup and this usergroup with ban rights ?

Yes, in the archives there is a kinda inline moderation tool for shouts removal.

No. The actual error was discovered several days ago and I check that thread on a daily basis sometimes several times a day, however I have not received a reply. This issues is very weird. I've been watching the mod and sometimes it will start working on it's own, then after a while stop working on it's own, or it will work for me on IE 7 and not work for someone else. I'm beginning to wonder if it's the hosting service that may be behind this issue. I currently have this addon and module running fine on both www.friendship-cafe.com and www.kv-guild.net. Both of these are on two different hosting services also, and not related to www.talkmarylandforum.com where I am having the issue.

Since upgrade ( of this mod ) our chat doesnt refresh as a new user posts.

We have to manually hit refresh button to see new replies in the chatbox.

Any suggestions what this could be, it isnt the inactive status, as we have set this to no.

Regards Ozzy

Bozza, I replied to this. Upgrading you need to remove all the commands. Read the readme file again. It's kinda confusing I think for a new person sometimes including the channel commands one. If you need help PM me info and I'll be glad to help out and try to resolve it.

Ozzy, I'm assuming it's vb 3.7.1 per your sig. If that's the case, everything should work and sounds like the same issue Bozza is having, or it's simliar. Did you have any commands added or was it just the chat itself?
