Chat Box Not Loading On Logging.

Thanks for this excellent mod without any templates edit.

I have been facing this right from beginning of forum and not able to sort it out. I use VSA- Chat Box & Vsa Advance Forum Statistics. When i login into forum the chat box & advance forum statistics doesn't load. The screen shows loading, but no progress is seen. when i click on the main Forum button next to What's New the Chat Box & Advance Forum Statistics gets loaded. I made changes in Index file located in Public_html, but didn't succeed. I have given the contents of my Index file below. Can someone pls advise me the exact problem and changes to be done, it will be very much helpful to me as i am beginner to Vbulletin.

I think you misread that. He had an older version of AFR and solved the problem by updating it. More importantly, as they did when solving it then, try disabling all your other mods one at a time to see if one of them isn't the culprit and maybe needs updating. Other than that, maybe try writing directly one of the people involved before.

These questions have all been answered previously in the thread, some quite recently. If you simply use the 'Search this Mod' function, you should find your answers in short order.

Grettings, how would I go about displaying the chatbox in only one category.

For instance we have a podcast section of the forums and would find this handy for users to be able to chat with guys on the show. However, we find it an unnecessary feature elsewhere and wouldn't be of much use. Is it possible to display this only in a specified section, and not others.

Sorry but these two areas are unclear and I'm not sure they achieve what I would want, or how to use them.:

Show ChatBox on pages (comma separated THIS_SCRIPT locations)
Blank to show on all pages (not recommended because of server load)

Show ChatBox in templates (comma separated template names)

Thank you, Valter!
Btw.. your mods are simply great. The only mods I have on my forum is this one and the one with Statistics. Good job!
As a suggestion.. I would recommend you creating a good hide mod. There's no performant hide mod around and I think it would be a success.
Thanks again.. and good luck!
