Ambiguous? You're not serious right? I hope you're being VERY sarcastic.

Do you have a custom skin? You upload the images to the same folder.

Have you ever installed a hack? If not, you might not want to mess with these as you will cause yourself more headaches. Try looking up some Documentation.

Learn to use your forum before you go somewhere and call someones instructions 'ambiguous'

I got it figured out (I should have figured it out in the first place. My members like to look back at the days chats and see if they missed anything, so I usually keep the chats to around 200 kept in the box. I guess it was taking a second or so to pull the chats from the filesystem.

I dropped it to 50 and it's working like a charm now!

Rock on with your bad self

You do indeed have style directories if you have any custom styles. We also sometimes refer to them as "skins" or "themes". Styles have their own directories, which is usually the same name as the style. Like my forum uses two white/blue styles called Centura and Centura_X. So all the images for those are stored in a folder called centura. If you don't use any custom styles and you use the default theme that came with vBulletin, then you would add the images to your images folder. But if you use the default AND any custom themes, you need to add the images to each directory for a particular style, in addition to the images folder.


Secondly, "Import the MGC Chatbox Evo product". What's that mean? Where do you go? How do you do that?
It's in the folder called Product. It's called product-mgc_cb_evo.xml. You import that through your Admin CP >>> Plugins & Products >>> Manage Products >>> [Add/Import Product] >>> EITHER upload the XML file from your computer. Look for the XML file and import it, but only after you've uploaded all the appropriate files.


I think if the directions were a little less ambiguous, it'd be a lot easier to download and install...
It's not that they're ambiguous, but they're pretty standard for any mod installation. If your not familiar with mod installations, or you've never done one that wasn't a simple template modification, then I can understand why you'd be confused. But you'll find that almost all the major modifications here require these identical steps, and might even include some template modifications.

I'd recommend looking at some of the documentation, and even at some other mods on the forum. Once you get a feel for how everyone expresses things, installations will become second nature to you.

OK, thank you for your explanation! I got that completed. However, now that it's all installed, and I did the language thing and everything like that, how do I get it to actually show up in the admin cp or in the forums pages? I can see it in the admin cp, but only in code, like there are boxes with the php coding, and then i can edit it, but where do i go to actually configure the program??

Thanks again...

Did you add the content of the Files folder to the correct folders in your forum?

You shouldn't be that in a hurry.

Requesting a quick fix is dangerous you know, it's better to take time to do something rather than hurrying.

Bitwise saturday is in 2 days...

The fix is not a simple line to add but multiple lines to add to comply with the new vbulletin cross scripting avoidance mean.

Hum,
200 is indeed a big number of chats but shouldn't have caused a lag. I will need to test that if I can somehow a day

I did. I got all the commands set up correctly, too, but I can't get it to show up on the forums page. Where do I "turn it on"? I found the setting that says "position of the chatbox" (correctly configured), and also the one that says "activate chatbox" (also configured), but I can't get anything to show up on the home page. Why is this?

Thanks for your help...

Sounds like you already do have it turned on. Display and position should control the rest.

I can't figure it out. Everything seems to be set correctly, but it won't show up anywhere on my forums. I've tried multiple variations of settings, but nothing will work. There is no chat box on my home page...

EDIT: I tried the direct link to the chatbox, which was http://[mydomainhere]/forums/mgc_cb_...o=view_chatbox

When I did that, I got an error message that read: Joe, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.


What's the permission setting I have wrong?! I've checked the command permission settings, but all of them allow administrators access; I am an administrator, and I am the administrator, lol...why don't I have access??

Heh, yeah, I forgot, I got that error too. By default, no one has permission. When you get permission errors after installing a mod, go to your Usergroup Manager and look for the settings for the modification. Generally speaking, Usergroup Permissions will be added as separate setting under each Usergroup. Just adjust Administrators and whoever else you want to use the mod under their respective group settings.

It's the new security features of RC4. It's printing the Session information. I hope they can fix this soon. The chatbox is a hot part of my site.
