Hey VBDev, any way you can add bots? So the bot will automatic respond to specific text and questions.

Well over complicating is not what I would have said But anyhow I think my idea of adding bunch of preset answers or sentence which you could quickly add is not that bad.

I should perhaps consider adding this Don't some of you think so ?

Some users reported that sometimes the shouts won't be sorted correctly.

They think it has something to do with the team shouts. Can you please check this?

A few things happened after upgrading MGC.
I used to use MGC before and it work great, I thought by upgrading it would be even better.
But after I upgraded I experience a few hiccups.

#1- In images\misc\mgc_cb_evo\channels, there are NO images. I have to scrap from other sites.
#2- Successfully upgraded chatbox. The forum load very slow and I am 100% sure this is caused by MGC Evo. (turned off MGC evo and everything back to normal)
#3- The chatbox keep saying "loading". All my previous chat transcript are available in archive but on the main display, nothing shown. Just a plain boring "loading" text.

So, can anyone advise me on what should I do?

Personally I think this would vary from forum to forum like for instance a sports forum could have staff added specifically for the bots process & they could add each days sporting events & times.

For a developer website they could have the answer to the question "where do I go to buy X" & the bot would reply with the appropriate link & such.

This would be a HUGE leap forward for this modification & one step closer to being an mIRC like chat script without all the hassle.

Best of luck in your decision & I look forward to see the results!

I disabled Evo and forum loads normal.

Anyone can advise?

Also, your zip file missing an image.

The javascript loading is a bit slow at startup, try setting yui files to be loaded from your server rather than yahoo server in the chatbox options.

I edited my message and did not realize you already reply to my past questions.
However, please take a look of these problem.

#1- The chatbox keep saying "loading". All my previous chat transcript are available in archive but on the main display, nothing shown. Just a plain boring "loading" text.

#2- I got this when trying to update the counters. "You must first activate the user chats count in order to be able to update the counters". What does it mean?

So, can anyone advise me on what should I do?

The default fonts in my chatbox are a lot bigger than the standard fonts used throughout my site - how do I go about adjusting them? I can see you've got classes set up, is there any place I can alter the CSS definitions? In particular I want to adjust the date/time font

Your chatbox is not visible to anonymous so can't have a look.

It's an option you have to activate, check the chatbox options.

There is an option to set wether chats shall use the normalfont or smallfont css class.

For the date/time font, you have to edit the mgc_cb_evo_chatbit* templates.

Nice and professional job vbDev .

But one thing spoil all the soup
Edit the posbit and postbit_legacy templates and add:
Why you don'T use template Hooks for instance postbit_userinfo_right_after_posts?

Or better put a set of options in admin panel with Radio buttons allowing to choose the place where everything must appear without any template editing - vBulletin is so kind to put so many template hook everywhere....

By the way After Updating I got that avatars and usernames were not visible. Chats themselvs and userids were correct, but everything was looking terrible.

I decided to re import my chat database, using import script and now it looks good. )
