And if I try to send another message, I got error

Error : A chat is already being processed, please wait.

I must to reply myself.... I found where is a problem..... mod_security!!! It's ON and on vBulletin make a problem.....

After diagnostic results are positiv, and this is solution by vBulletin:

The above setting will indicate if mod_security is preventing some AJAX requests from being submitted to vBulletin. If this shows Yes (it was on me!!!) then you either need to disable mod_security or change the AJAX settings with the vBulletin Options and disable Problematic features.

So, now we know where is a problem......

Thanks!


P.S. IE and sometimes other browsers MOST have a scroling problem when EDITOR is UNDER and Chats display order are Oldest First!!! Posts are not shown correctly - I see OLD posts on top, and window not scroll to new written posts on bottom..... Maybee bug? On old version 1.5 I don't have this problem EVER!


Thanks again!!!

Any idea why it says "Entrez votre chat" in th chatbox, even though I installed the English language pack?

Any way to change that?

Well it seems that per the error, you are having files or product not uptodate.

Please check that you uploaded all files correctly on your forum and that the product is installed.

EDIT ALSO everytime I set the admin permissions after I save it creates a new admin group? Are you sure this is compatible with 3.8?
Yes sorry you don't have to search for $search but $find_text.

About the permissions, no it's not normal, it shouldn't act like that.

Are you sure the chatbox product is installed and the files are well uploaded ?

The issue is that you can't align chats on the right ?

Chatbox javascript files are in the clientscript/mgc_cb_evo folder.

Well chats and notifications are retrieved at the same time so I am not sure this feature would really be efficient ?

No this will be fixed in the next version.

About mod_security, this has already been stated and Ranger187 posted a little "how to configure your server for this".

About the scrolling problem in IE, check bug list It's already in it.

Hi VBDev- for such a popular item and so many posts I know things can be over looked... So I'm just bringing this back up since I never saw you respond to it (although you may have looked at it and answered it already in your head )
Thanks!

Ok - it wasn't the chatbox. After the update to vB3.8 our forum had problems with ajax. Not only the chatbox was affected - but also Quick-Reply and other features.

We made a few server configuration changes and now it is working fine on vB3.8

I hope there will be a new version soon. *sorry - I'll be patient *

But in the chatbox it is working. Is this possible?
