Those popups are not part of the standard MGC Chat. I'm guessing you added those? Looks like a CSS editor you are in, unless I'm smoking crack, course I haven't slept in 2 days so far.

If I'm correct about any of that, it's the CSS stylesheets doing that.

The reason I say that, is by default, there are not that many options. I also haven't added all the commands either yet. (I'm not the developer just a turd in here that helps VBdev).

Is there any way the XML files could be used to import into a forum? I'd rather archive the shouts on the forum rather than in the shoutbox. Say if I downloaded the XML file, could I upload it some how to post in the forum?

Yeah. Enable HTML in that area. Use a parser to export the XML to HTML or TXT.... Should be something on google.

But it's not automated. You'd have to figure that one out.

Does anyone know why it constantly tells me, "Loading..."?

Anyone have any ideas what the problem may be? Or how to go about trying to fix it?

I'm still having the same problem with the vBa CMPS module however the chatbox works fine over the forum home page. I seem to be getting an unusal security error as can be seen here.

Nope... standard MGC Chatbox. I've not added anything except for the commands that came with the initial product.

Any other ideas?

Question: Is it possible to add a per-user functionality to determine where the chatbox displays? For instance: in the UserCP, there is the option to disable the chatbox on a per-user basis, as well as to govern it's formatting. What I'd like to do is allow my users to determine whether the chatbox displays above threads, above forums, or just on the forumhome, on a per-user basis, by the same sort of settings.

Not sure what could be the problem with this, but while 99.9% of this is working, entering the show bans code doesn't open the window, and all moderators have said the same and have the allowed permissions...

I'm not the developer. Just giving my thoughts. I just do most of the help if I can.

That's a great idea, and I think that's something he could/would add to a future release just not right now. It's just a lot to change around because right now the admin chooses where it's displayed. But I think that's a good suggestion.

What forum version are you running (I don't think this matters much), have you tried in other browsers on other computers?

That's really weird. It seems like it's CSS/DHTML formatting. Have you tried all the browsers to see if it's consistant in them all?

Not sure. Could be just a few things. Can you PM me info so I can check it?

Not Found

The requested URL /mgc_cb_evo.php was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


It's not fully or correctly installed. Archives = 404.

Ok... it works ok in IE and FireFox 3 but not FireFox 2. It must be something in the fireFox 2 engine that is screwing it up.
