You may edit messages by double clicking on them (If you have permission to do so), delete messages by clicking on the '#' in front of your messages, send a user a private message by single clicking their name, or speed up/slow down the speed messages are typed at by pressing the 'up' or 'down' arrow keys on your keyboard.

FAQ
Q: My board uses UTF-8 or another nonstandard charset how can i fix this?
A: because UTF-8 is not vBulletin's default charset the data is incorrectly displayed. The fastest way to fix this is to open your admin panel select "Languages and Phrases" then Language Manager. Now hit edit settings on the language you are using and 7 options down you will see "HTML Character Set" change this to UTF-8 (default is ISO-8859-1).

Q: GCBOS always says loading how can i fix this?
A: The header include hooks is either missing or not working simply view your pages source and check if you can see gcbos.js if you cant please re-read the installation instructions and make sure all the steps have been followed.

Q: My host uses PHP 5.3 or above how do i make GCBOS work?
A: It should work by default (GCBOS sets 'allow_call_time_pass_reference' to on at runtime) if this doesnt work consult your host

Support
If you encounter any bugs please post as much detail as possible to help me find a solution this includes SQL errors and screen shots if you are not comfortable posting the error please PM me.

Not sure why, but when people submit a message it shows all the code. For example:

#/delmessage]23/30/User/pm]>It shows the code/edit]/message]

is what shows

I have never seen this before can you post a screen shot/ a link to thesite so I can take a look? If it's what I think it is it's a feature as the original developer intended it to be a command line system.

I plan on adding a font option later today, but if people encounter bugs i will fix those first I beloved smilies work though but there is not an editor to show them as of yet.

This site realy needs a mobile style >_>

From what I remember not that much, the original developer used it on a rather large site with no noticeable changes.

@above if it still shows loading you need to add the hook to headinclude.

GSBOS the predecesor was released here or if you check the google code page (it's linked in the first post) you can find GCBOS for 3.8



About the font editor etc, i have an idea of how to code it but how would you like me to lay it out? Eg: B, U, I / Color picker in the notice bar or?



Update
Uploaded 0.6.4 fixes the who's online location issue.

Coming back to this you mean when you edit a message the input box shows /edit <message_id> <message_body> and delete shows /delete <message_id> ? If so this is an intended feature of the original developer as this is ment to be a command line system like IRC (ish).
