How do I set the "Automatic refresh" period and what is the default value?

Go to the usergroup manager. I forget what the default is but you have to edit it for each usergroup.

How do you disable ajax and what are the negative side effects of disabling it?

Thanks

Just installed it aok, but I'm getting database error emails on occasion, which read

UPDATE user
SET mgc_cb_evo_banned='0',mgc_cb_evo_bantime='0'
WHERE mgc_cb_evo_bantime<'1266597013';

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'mgc_cb_evo_banned' in 'field list'

I'm also noticing a rather significant delay before a message actually appears in the message listing? Is there a reason for that?

Any help is appreciated

Sounds to me like you had it installed before or did an upgrade without sending all the files. You can also create this table in phpmyadmin. But I'd reupload all the files again, and reimport.

Thanks, I guess... Nothing at all for us on which to do any planning, eh?

Not: "Within six months" or "It'll be at least a year" or nothing to help us who've committed to this software and are trying to complete our business plan for 2010?
