Could you please post the fix for the edit options bug? I dont need a new version. Just that one bug fix. Hundreds of members are complaining.

I cant go back to the previous version, due to the security exploit.

The bug that many in this thread are experiencing with version 3.0.0:
UserCP > edit options doesn't open, but gives this error:
Warning: require_once([path]/includes/mgc_cb_evo/class_display.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/profile.php(4553) : eval()'d code on line 71

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/snowandm/public_html/forum/includes/mgc_cb_evo/class_display.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/snowandm/public_html/forum/profile.php(4553) : eval()'d code on line 71
Members can not change their options, nor can they turn the chatbox on/off.


A side note about MGC Chatbox:
While I give chat access to only 0.3% of my members and the MGC chat settings are set to be as resource friendly as can by, its still my sites top resource hog.

The chat box is absorbing 1.3 million (7% of all) connections and 2.1 GB (2% of all) bandwidth on my big board.

It would be very useful if the MGC chat box would be optimized for performance.

I installed with Overwrite selected and

Warning: require_once([path]/includes/mgc_cb_evo/class_misc.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/profile.php(4553) : eval()'d code on line 100

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/snowandm/public_html/forum/includes/mgc_cb_evo/class_misc.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/snowandm/public_html/forum/profile.php(4553) : eval()'d code on line 100

Strange. This fixed it for me.
The issue that is causing this bug is that the [path] is wrong. On my site it was looking for /public_html/forum/forum/includes/mgc_cb_evo/class_misc.php

Mind the double mention of 'forum'. Look up what the script is searching for on your forum.

Right, its looking for this on my site

'/home/snowandm/public_html/forum/includes/mgc_cb_evo/class_misc.php

I cannot find this mgc_cb_evo/class_misc.php in my forum/includes folder under forum. So I looked on the software I downloaded and its not there either.
I downloaded again and Im not a computer brain but should'nt there be a folder inside of the includes folder called " mgc_cb_evo " then when you go there a php program called class_misc.php?

You are correct. That folder existed in previous versions. I still had the old folder with the old file.

Its strange that this version refers to a folder of previous versions.

Try to create the folder and upload the file to there. See if that resolves it.

Hello there, is there any option or plan for the future, to have the chat box work on the Sidebar Block? And not in the forum home top as it is at the moment?

FIXED!

I went in and added mgc_cb_evo directory to the forum/includes/ folder
made that directory 755, then added the class_misc.php file to that directory, I found that in the classes directory. Im not sure if this is done correctly but the error is gone.

Apologies for sounding so vague, but in the read me file, what exactly is meant by
Upload the content of the Images in each of your forum styles directories.
Do I do this via FTP? I am having trouble finding the forum style directories.

Thank you
