Hello,

I am wondering if you can help me, I have installed this mod and I am trying to intergrate it into the ibproarcade.

I have followed the instruction in the readme and added
$mgc_cb_evo_var
in the arcade template but nothing shows at all.

I am using VB 3.8.0, just cant figure out why its doing nothing at all.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks for the help!

But I just tried a clean install (Deleted files / edits, product, then reinstalled) and the issue seems to persist (doesn't show). (2.2.1. was used)

Any ideas?

I have uninstalled it (both the module and ChatBox) and completly removing absolutely all files. I started fresh, fixed the permissions in the Usergroups, settings, etc. and when I try to post something I get a page with:
"Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.
If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error."


- I have uninstalled it, removed all files, made sure there is nothing in templates.
- I have reloaded all files, installed the product, fixed the permissions (all other settings as default) and still the same message.
- I have optimized/fixed the db, ran the maintenance with most activities there, clean the browser cache (I've tried it on two different computers and three browsers.
- I have re-uploaded the ChatBox files, installed it as an upgrade, fixed the permissions, and i still get this message:
"Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.
If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error."


Also, when I click on smilies link, the page moves down to the ChatBox limit and the link in the browser is: http://www.myforum.com/forum/index.php#mgc_cb_evo_top

I ma struggling with this from more than two days and don't know what else I should do. Please help me out.
Exact the same problem here

Otherwise if using 2.2.1 you shouldn't encounter that issue.
Have you a vB 3.6 version ?
MGC Chatbox Evo version ist 2.2.1, vBulletin version is 3.8.1
Which cache do i have to refresh after install?

No mine works just fine. I have tried using the "Chats display order" set as Newest First and Oldest First and they both work fine. I tested in IE, FF 3.0.6, and Safari... I'm running vb 3.8.1

Also I notice that two tables are missing from the new 2.2.1 version
isthreadwarning
ispostwarning

Have these tables been removed from the coding altogether or are they for an option that I just don't have enabled yet? Can I just go ahead and remove these tables from my db?

It's showing everywhere except in the arcade ?

You have configured both options and change the arcade file ?

Does it appear or does it only just not load chats ?

Can you check in Firefox error console and tell me if anything's wrong.

Before update to vB3.8 ? or chatbox update ?

You can't have token errors with vBulletin version 3.8.1 unless you have chatbox templates not reverted.

Is it the case ?

Yes they have been removed and the install script should have removed them.

If your chatbox doesn't display it might be a style issue or usergroup permissions not set.

I don't see any other reason.

Yes sure this will be updated.

Well I am currently updating one of my other non-free mod currently and next is the chatbox update.

I think I'll be releasing a new chatbox version in one or two weeks.

Sorry for this delay but you know I am doing vBulletin during my free time so it takes a bit more time than if I was developping during the whole day.
