What have you done exactly ? What's going wrong ?

Please give details, a simple phrase is not enough to imagine what you did...
I was referring to the other poster's problem on the PM pop-up window. Anyway, here's the problem:

Before installing this product, whenever a member receives a private message, there is a pop-up window that appears in the screen upon logging in or browsing the pages. This served as a reminder to the recipient that he/she has a new private message in his inbox. Now, after I installed MGC Chatbox, I noted that this "PM pop-up" window disappeared and the only clue that a new PM message is in the inbox is looking at the "New Notification" in the right upper box (assuming that you are using the default vBulletin style.

What have I done exactly? I've installed your product... funny when I disable it and tried sending PMs to other members, the PM pop-up window appears again.

I hope this is clear. I'll be graciously awating for more updates. Thanks in advance.

I'm using vBulletin 3.7.1 PL2, by the way

I'll translate what says in the IE warning for you:
Line: 863
CARACT:2
Error: The object does not supports this property or method
Code: 0
URL: www.g6-team.com/index.php

See!? Wasn't so hard! Didn't even used a translator

Oh and Opera issue still remains! Unfortunately! But in strange way. I mean, the menus work but when the amount of shouts are so that the scroll bar is seen they stop working right. My trick: click the button, scroll down or up the chatbox and then the menu is working right (hope you understand me).

@VBDev you didn't comment this post! Or isn't there anything to comment?

pm problem I am having

Hi VBDev,

Ok I have had help checking for problems with version 0.5.0 running on VBulletin version 3.7.2 Patch Level 1.

I can send other members a pm fine in the chatbox, the popup works correctly. But when other members try to send me or another member a pm, it says "user does not exist". This is the case also when other members try to respond to my pm.

I have updated and set settings correctly for user groups. Besides the pm problem the chatbox is working correctly.

Just trying to assist you with tracking down the problem others may be experiencing.

Tom S.

pspmaster93,

Did you import the MGC chatbox EVO Product and MGC chatbox EVO Commands Product into your AdminCP in the Plugin & Products selection down on the left? Then restart your AdminCP and then you should see MGC Chatbox EVO as a new selection on the left in the AdminCP.

Open that MGC Chatbox EVO selection and click the Manage Commands. Here you will import the Commands xml that you are going to use on your Forum.

Tom S.

Well i only run the chat box on the forum home. So the solution for the moment i have found to get rid of this error on the other pages is to:

edit the template called mgc_cb_evo_headinclude and change the template from



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

TO:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now all the display options work again, but im not sure if this will cause other errors.

I am really sorry I am undergoing a lot of job outside of vB currently

I don't have lots of time for support

If you have problems with 0.5.0 version of the chatbox please go back to previous version.

I hope to post a new version if I can to fix that autocomplete messing up feature in august.
