Image paths are all messed up.

Some images are pointing to forum/images/misc/mgc_chatbox/mgc_cb_refresh.gif and others to /forum/images/misc/mgc_cb_evo. The last zip contains only mgc_cb_evo folder in images/misc directory.

The problem appeared in the last install, you have to reimport the spanish language file of vBulletin and use the spanish xml file of the new release.

Yeah, it didn't fix it. Apparently it's looking for image down9x9.gif in my misc folder.. but that file doesn't exist in there.

Still image path issues:

When logged (usergroup can see and use chatbox):
http://bfcentral.oi.com.br/forum/ima...vo_refresh.gif (image Ok)

When unlogged (usergroup can only see the chatbox):
http://bfcentral.oi.com.br/forum/ima...cb_refresh.gif (image Not Ok)

And these images are not showing correctly (i don't know the correct path, even uploading the images correctly, they don't show up) - see attachment

wow, thanks for the updates..... just a question, where is the url in new window command?

also for the usergroup permissions, the new addition "Can view the chatbox even if the minimum number of posts is not reached", doesn't really work, or make any sense!
It should be like the old chatbox, where a usergroup can view, but not use the chatbox untill a member gets at least x number of chats. This new option here has no impact, if you set it to no, then the user wont see or use the chatbox untill x posts, if set to yes, then he can see and use chatbox without having x number of posts.....

You have to reimport all commands every time you reinstall the mcg chatbox.

entertain- looks right to me...

Others missing the arrow: I don't know why it disappeared but, if you save it to your misc folder (for each skin) It'll be back for you... I'm attaching it here for you. Hopefully that's the only thing that went away during the update.

Hello.

Now I know that this marked things are normally.

But I have many problems in Firefox (in IE not):
1. If i press on one of this arrows there () doesn't appear this menu.
2. If I press at the text field, "Entrez votre chat >>" does not disappear automatically.
3. When I click at "BBCode" and click f. e. on "B" "I" "U" there doesn't appear anything.

This is all functionating in the Internet Explorer, but in Firefox not.
