Absolutely positive I am. Well, here. Sign up on unitedxtremegaming.net/upload/index.php - Then click on the archives link. It takes you to http://unitedxtremegaming.net/forum/...rchives&page=1 Where as in that URL, I need it to replace the root of /forum/ with /upload/. Real simple. I just can't figure out where to do it at. I'm sure if I was able to figure THAT out, I would be able to fix the rest of it.

The thing is that loading issue is perhaps not due to the chatbox but a small install error.
But let's see what happen in the next version and if it still says loading then we will try chasing the bug !

This is a vBulletin option (from the software not my chatbox) (Site and url options)

What are the new features in the new version?

I would really like to see a 1 file XML installation (like cyb..), it's really bothersome right now. And command should just be built-in, not via extra php files.

Did I mention I was a dolt? Thanks VBdev, you're a lifesaver, and no doubt this is one of the(if not the) best chat solution for Vbulletin!

The new version will be a bux fixes release with only few new features. You can see them in the list of the first post (things in green are included).

The performance enhancement is not included in that release.

Going back to a one xml file structure is not yet planned, it would take too much time to go back to the old way.

Hey dude, you really didn't wait long enough for support. You didn't specify what version of VBulletin your are running, if you upgraded from a previous mgc chatbox etc. If I can get it working on every site, then it's probably fixable.

I've noticed on my forum that the shout box doesn't properly "pop" when you click the arrow on the front vbadvanced page, but it does pop out properly when clicked from the forums home page.

Is anyone else noticing this?

I did change the header of the shoutbox a little so it used TCAT instead as that
looked better on my template : ) (You should make an option to change between
tcat and thead later on if you don't have anything to do :P)
