Yes this would be a one click XML install.

I would directly include commands in files & database thus avoiding install of commands upon each command modifications when a new release of the chatbox is out.

The chatbox wouldn't lost any of it's functionnalities.

Ok. You are not making sense now. If it's going to be a 1 click install, and not lose any functionality why ask which type to goto? As in option 1 or option 2. Based on your reply, that isn't the case.

My thoughts...

When upgrades happen, you still will need to re-upload the files, images and XML. So I don't see how much changes. Just less needed user wise to "install" the plugin.

I use the /me command. Hardly any of the others. Are the commands causing the issue from going to a 1 click install? If so, add that as an "addon" then So the base install has all minus the commands. If they want commands they add it.

Disclaimer: Might be me.. Tired! ; )

Entering no message in the chat field results in a message telling me I must enter a chat. That's a good thing however, the screen area dims and I must hit F5 to get back. Same thing happens when I attempt to Private chat however, I can't seem to get it to do anything but tell me the user doesn't exist.

Any starting places I can look for the issue?

Update: 2 of 5 template exhibit the issue of dimming and needing refreshed so it's my problem but I could really use a tip to keep these two templates in place... (I can recreate the problem by inserting an image)

One thing for uploading confused me :

- in the 0.5.0 version, the "Files/clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_add/css there's one file : images.rar.

Should i extract this and upload the extraction files to : forumroot/clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_add/css/images or : forumroot/clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_add/css ?

Thank's

Yes but in your case you don't need lots of commands but it's not the same for others.

In option 2, this would be a one click install as the commands creation system would disappear

The only thing that would be lost is the possibility to create commands but no-one has released commands so far so I think it's not a needed feature.

You meant you had modified templates of the chatbox and didn't reverted them after upgrading ?

If yes then it's on your hand guy, you must always revert templates upon any update.

POP UPs still doesn't work in Opera 9.5 (Main page pop ups i mean. Archive pop ups work fine. So i wonder that this is not a Browser issue)
