Extracted with 7zip now, still doesn't help with the errors on the archive page. Some templates that have been edited when I used the last version have been reverted, but that also didn't work.

For that matter...

7zip: Extracts files fine

FileZilla upload then ends up with the error with the archive, and possible non capability with Internet Explorer.

Windows built in file extraction on XP and Vista won't extract the zip file.

Upload direct through Plesk also didn't fix the problem with the archive.

Meh, I'll contact the modification author. It's worked fine in the past, and it's probably something simple.

Sorry to but in here guys but I'm a newbie, I've installed the chatbox - all good except it's stuck on loading and I get a security token missing error. So do all of my user groups, in all browser types. Any ideas? There are a few potential advanced looking fixes in this thread - i don't want to break anything. Any concrete fixes for these issues?

Fixed. I had to uninstall and reinstall the shoutbox. I guess the upgrade aspect kills the latest version.

Apologies Lynne, I just don't like it when people get called stupid.

Apologies to Ranger as well. I wasn't having a good day, which is why I was surfing forums......

This worked for me.....

mgc_cb_evo_static.js

Find the following: mgc_cb_evo_jsloc+"mgc_cb_evo_ajax.php"

Replace with: "http://yourwebsite.com/mgc_cb_evo_ajax.php"

For me the mgc_cb_evo_jsloc varible has never worked on any of the versions.

There are multiple occurances of these, so do a find and replace.

You may need to adjust the http:// reference if you have your forum in a subdirectory.
All this edit does is remove the "guess work" of the jsloc varible and force the correct location.
One site I deal with they have set up really goofy, Their forums home page is not their .com page. I had to put files in both the forums directory as well as the publichtml directory, th3en upload the xml files.

That fix above cleared up all my problems though.

Worked like a dream creppello!!! Thank you so much

I had the same deal where my forum doesn't reside in the root folder, so had to upload the clientscript folder to the root and everything worked on my vBA CMPS at that point.

There is an English patch. Upload with the language manager, refresh, and it changes to English.

This thing is very nice, excellent job on it. One question, is there a way to UN-ban someone from the chat? Or does one have to go into the database and change a marker?

Good morning,


Could someone please help me. I believe I have my "special helmet" on too tight.

I have added the proper permissions to the bot feature in user groups and activated the plugin.

I added the questions and answers yet I see nothing.



Could someone be kind enough to do a play by play so I can test this?


Everything else seems to be working just fine.



Again here are the steps I followed.:

1. Activate the bot in the chatbox ? Set to yes.

2. NEW Bot's userid: Gave that merf a name

3. Bot chats format: <i>{1}</i> <----The Default setting

4. Under manage the bot: I added questions and answers.

5. Under User Groups: I added the Admin setting of "Can talk to bot" to yes.



What am I missing?


Added: I Also am having issues with the avatars showing up on in the chatbox. Ay ideas yet?






Thank you so much in advance!

/ban off uid userid : Unban the user specified by the userid passed as command parameter.
or
/ban off uname userid : Unban the user specified by the username passed as command parameter.
if you're not sure who is currently banned use:
/ban show : Open a popup window containing the list of users banned from the chatbox with the possibility of unban users simply through buttons in this window.

These and more are all listed in the built in help for the chatbox (click the question mark in the lower right corner of box)
