I would still like to figure out how to set the chatbox so that if someone is on your ignore list you won't see their messages in the chatbox...

Anyone? Help me out...

Ok, I'm not sure if this has been covered or not but I'm having issues with the permissions. On my forum I restrict the chat access to VIP Members only but I have them set up as:

Primary Usergroup : Registered Users
Secondary Usergroup : VIP Members

I set Registered User to View Chat Only and have VIP to be able to use Chat BUT they can't because of their Primary Usergroup has them as Registered and I am assuming the Primary Usergroup settings override the Secondary Usergroup settings.

Can this be fixed or can someone tell me how to make the Secondary Usergroup override the Primary Usergroup?

Come on... Where is the "ignore" functionality. Great chatbox other than that, but geez... Is this being supported?... I need this feature, otherwise I'll be uninstalling and using a different one. I like this one, so I'd like to see it added...

If anyone even wants to just walk me through adjusting the code to make it happen, even that would be fine...

Hey.. I've got a problem:
I disabled the option of the chat to be on FORUMHOME, and then, I went to the misc.php?do=cchatbox

And there, it's showing "Loading..." - But does'nt work!

What is the problem?
If you want to see the page, it's here:

Very nice!

Is there anyway for the chatbox to appear at that same spot on every page/thread? It would be nice if people can have it displayed no matter where they browse so they can continue chatting.

Right now as it stands, the chatbox only appears on my forum's main page.

Is there a way I can change this?

In the settings, there's one called "Show chatbox on". I have index,forumdisplay,search but you can put it on any page you like.
