I have taken it out again, per your message and we still get the exact same message that we are missing the security token. Anything else I can try?
You can try :
  1. Check that you have uploaded all the new files
  2. Refresh your cache

I uninstalled and removed every mgc file I could find and then did a complete reinstall ensuring that every file in the files folder was coppied tothe forumns directory. I moved all of the images to the standard images folder as well as my greenskin images folder.

I still get the missing security token message when I try to post in the chat box...

Any other ideas?

Try using firefox and pull up the error console and see what errors it gives. You shouldn't be using that Var token key.

Oh oh damned

How did you experienced that ? By entering the whole command syntax or in a different way ?
I'm clicking on the arrow, selected "Send private chat" and added the " in the chat. It never sends the message.

Small feature request by the way.. Is it possible you can add it so people can't spam the chat box? having a "line per minute" rule? So people are forced to edit their own chats?

Then you haven't refreshed your cache nor have uploaded the newer js files.

None has experienced such issues.
Only thing that could cause such problem :
  • The js files are not up-to-date
  • You have a modified version of the mgc_cb_evo template which is not reverted
  • Your browser cache is not refreshed (same for all of your users)
