One more thing...
If you've upgraded from the previous Chatbox V1.x, eg V1.5, you need to DELETE all of the old/prior files. That's absolutely necessary.
There's also a MGC Chatbox template that's created (in V1.x). I've yet to learn how to delete this older V1.x template; but, it doesn't seem to affect the new Chatbox Evo.

Okay. Assuming you're running V0.3.0, did you upgrade from a V0.2x, or any earlier release?
VBDev makes it clear that you need to completely uninstall everything then load V0.30.
And, you have turned on the Evo Chatbox in your usergroups, right?

Can you create more than one Team channel without dinking things is my question?
Plus, articulate; I can't 'read' what you're trying to ask? Sorry.

Have you turned on access to the Team channel for the relevant usergroups?
Also, in Manage Channels, under 'Channel command information' have you clicked on/allowed the usergroups you want to have access to the Team channel?
And, this could be a 'glitch' that VBDev needs to address.

Are you testing this using different 'test' people. I have different psuedo users that I log in as, one's a SuperMod, one's a Regular User, one's a Mod, and my Admin user.
And, you're right. It does appear that the Team channel only uses the default color (not a user's preferences) for, say, Team channel. Try putzing with that color if nothing else. In each usergroup there's a 'MGC Chatbox Evo: Default chat color.' Tweak that, see, if nothing else, if that has any affect.

It's not possible currently.

When developping the first version of the MGC Chatbox Evo, I have thought at it but haven't found the good way to handle it.

This is something I would like to handle but I won't handle it right now, it could take time before I add it to the chatbox.

How can you get the 2nd channel use the same colour text as the general channel, without having to use the BBCODE function when posting all of the time?
I don't get you on that point, can you give me more details on what you're meaning ?

Tom S.
Read carefully the install instructions, you just have to upload the content of the files directory in the forum root thus keeping the directory structure.

I mean a user can select their default colour to post in on the general channel, but this isn't carried over into the second channel, even when setting it in the admin cp, there is no way to set it for the second channel.

Yes It is, this is just that I am a bit busy currently. I do vBulletin during free time which is not a lot this month.

I hope I'll be able to release a new version as soon as possible that would correct all the bugs and new functionnalities.

Don't worry, I am still on it !

A user/color chat color is only taken into account when the command attached to the channel is set to take into account the user format options.

Which is not the case for the team command.

However, as you use it for a channel, you can edit the command and set it to take into account the color formatting
