Or the possibility to display all channels in 1, while each nickname is prefixed with the channel name, and you can talk by adding /channelname blalbalb to their channel (like you can do now from the global channel etc too :P)

Just brainstorming, but thought it might be a nice idea (Moderators, Want-To-Know-Everything types, etc etc )
Honestly I won't develop such a feature. This would be an enormous rework and I don't see the point of such a feature sorry.

Question Stats not appearing

Excellent addition to my site. Thank you VBDev

In the read me there is
"edit the FORUMHOME template and add the $mgc_cb_evo_stats where you want the stats to appear on your forum home."
This is where I placed the above statement in FORUMHOME:

</head>
<body>
$header
$navbar
$mgc_cb_evo_stats
<if condition="$show['guest']">
<!-- guest welcome message -->

I've taken the "yes" option in AdminCP "Display stats on the forumhome"

Unfortunately, nothing happens, nothing is displayed on the forum page. Perhaps I'm not doing something that I should.

Please help

Hi all,

I'm receiving by mail this error:


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

The timeout configuration of the mysqlserver isn't the problem (i've spoken with the admin).

Do you have any idea?

Thanks.

Honestly I don't know.btw this is not the good thread, you are asking questions about the mgc_chatbox and not the mgc_cb_evo

I think it could be a too low refresh rate perhaps but not sure.

You haven't uninstalled the 1.5 version correctly.

You should have removed chatbox files prior to the new install.

To correct that, you have to remove the 1.5 version files and then rebuild bitfields manually.

VBDev, Right On!
I had uninstalled Chatbox V1.5, but I also needed to delete the CBv15 files. Once I deleted those files, ChatBox Evo works in my vB370RC1 testvb.

Hey can anyone help me? I've just installed the product through the ACP and i've then tried importing the english lang file, and it says

"This file was created using a different version of vBulletin from the one you are running.

Your version: 3.7.0 Beta 4
File version: 3.6.7"

Thought this was compatible with 3.7.x how am I going to get around this? as in the vbulletin options, all of the MGC options are in spanish.

Helppp
