Sounds like you've got some major additions to that function.php file that are messing with some calls in the main mod .php file. Only a guess.
Well, I wondered that too. But I googled fetch_template() and found that literally hundreds of live websites have the same message with different templates and they all refer to line 4097. For example:

http://www.uberfrags.net/modules.php?name=Jig

and

http://www.reef2reef.com/hotlinks.ph...te&moduleid=54

and there are a lot more with line variations such as 3912, 3984, etc

giaguaro, i just looked at your site, I see now that it is in Spanish.

I'm guessing instead of selecting the English file, go into the 'Not Updated" folder and select the Spanish XML file.

Again, I'm 'guessing' on that one.

To tell the truth, i cant see ANY class_bootstrap.phpin the include folder, neither in the chat files, nor in the vbulletin native files...
Cant tell about the other files, but everything was uploaded fine

Hey guys,

So I had a custom forum skin created for me and now all the buttons on my Chatbox are missing. I figured this was because the images folder was not uploaded to the new skin. But even after uploading it and also disabling and relabeling the plug-in I still can’t get the images to show up.

All I get are the missing image.. Image.

Any tips on how I can get the images to work on my new skin?

Just a quick question on this

Can an "image" be set in as a backdrop to the chatbox?

Obviously with a transparency etc but can it be added ?

If memory serves me correctly you dont put the button images in the 'skin' folder they are in the generic image folder so it doesnt matter how many skins or themes you have it will always display your buttons no matter what..

eg. http://www.yourwebsite.com/images/misc/mgc_cb_evo/

For future reference:

Right click the image and hit view, you should now see an error page, this will show you what folder the images should be in.

Hope that helps

Uninstalled as the programmer keeps promising an update but it never happens.

It's to resource hungry and slows down my forum like crazy.

Actually, I talk to him now and then. He emailed me

Hi,

Thanks, have been away quite a long time due to location move, lack of motivation and lots of work.

I have started refixing the remaining bug, should provide beta ASAP.

VbDev
One thing I know about him, he's persistent. He's built this from the ground up so I don't see him just tossing it out. Give him some time. http://www.forumcoding.com/content/ is his site... They just had a NIC fail so the sites giving some errors.

You will definitely have class_bootstrap.php in your includes directory as vBulletin wouldn't work without it. Did you upload the content of the Files folder to your forum root?

Make sure you didn't upload all the folders in the mgc folder by mistake as this would give you 2 includes directories on the server.

Content of Files folder > forum root
Content of images folder > forum root/images
