Thanks VBDev, it's very kind of you. But another thing that is strange is that the menus work great in the chat archive page.

Yeah, I know..easier said then done. But you already have the lead/win in the chatbox area. Why not just own the competition and do the 1 click. k thanks k.

What makes you think it doesn't work correctly ?
Because the usergroup that attempts to use the /ban show command says they don't have the access to do this. While the /ban xxxxx userid works fine for them. I gave myself the usergroup that have been selected within the ban plugin:

Skyrider, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
But when I try to do this command (with the same user):
/ban on uname Skyrider
I'm getting:
The user was successfully banned
Trust me, there is something wrong here.

That's a shame as it works perfectly on all the other templates - I suppose I'll go research jquery and see if that helps any.

That's not necessarly strange, the way the menu is handled in the archives is different from inside the chatbox.

I don't win from much installs

I think I'll do it but what's a bit less fun is that if I do so, I'll have some dilemmas :
  • Team command will disappear as it will now correspond to creating a new channel is that a problem ?
  • How to handle the pm command ?
    • Only as a specific channel ?
    • Or having the possibility to either activate it has a channel or has a command in the general channel ?
This change in the chatbox will force me to create an installer for the first release between the old 0.x.x versions to the new 1.x.x version as commands won't be handled as they where before. But I don't think that it's a major problem

But if you try that with your admin usergroup with these rights it works ?

How to handle the pm command ?

* Only as a specific channel ?
* Or having the possibility to either activate it has a channel or has a command in the general channel ?
Is it possible to view the pm in the channel where users do the pm ?

example : I create 1 channel, then in the channel i pm 1 user. The pm will visible in the channel where i am. Right now, the pm appears in the general channel

Thank's

Yes, then it works fully. The ban doesn't work properly with custom usergroups. Like, one you created yourself and you select that usergroup within the ban option menu to select who can use the ban commands. It works fine with moderators, super moderators and admins, just not custom usergroups.

Yes but still you can create a dedicated channel for it.

But your point is interesting, I could make the command work in any channel ! But no more in only a dedicated one (general channel or pm channel).

They can't (bitwise it would be stupid to ban yourself ). Only another user with ban rights could unban them.
