Then installed our older version. [vB3.6.x-vB3.7.x]MGC_Chatbox_Evo_0.4.0]

This then threw up lots of mysql erros, after reloading language file. And then doing permissions in Usergroups.

Now we cannot even revert to this version.

Is all hope lost ??

Any suggestions please
Hum can you copy here the errors please coz I can't help you without a inch of error text

Have you ensured javascript files were uploaded correctly ?

How is your javascript loading set in chatbox options (local or YUI server) ?

Do you see any error in the error console on Firefox ?

Well I don't handle vBA as stangger5 mod is supposed to work so haven't had a look. You should ask him.

Perhaps that extra space comes from your forumhome template ?

Yah and unfortunately that one comes with the default vBulletin template! I've just noticed vBulletin.com has the same extra space

I have put the uptodate translation of the chatbox in german, you have used it ?

In that case, have you tried with english langauge ? Perhaps the issue is on that side.

Yes, the german language is the problem! No errors with the english language.

Apologies.

I thought I had deleted my post.

That last quote, was the beginning of a post containing huge array of database errors. Which crashed the forum. We got it fixed, please disregard that last message.

Please can you confirm, the last good working version of the chat prior to vb3.8 version.

So that we may download and start over.

I am having major refresh issues with the 2.3.2 version. Most of the time the refresh stops working after a minute or two, or doesn't work at all. (It IS enabled!)

I upgraded from 2.2.0 (I also made sure to run the upgrade script as well.)

I've also switched back and forth between running the YUI direct from yahoo and from the server, but still having the chat get stuck on the "Loading..." screen or stuck on the chat screen without refreshing.

Doesn't the directions say to check the ignore language version when you import the language xml... HINT HINT I think you missed something in the directions.
