So for "Width of the chatbox when integrated to a page of the forum" are you using a px size? Try using a %... So it will be a % of each theme regardless of what the width you have it set to is... So try 100% if that's still wider than you like try something like 90% and just keep playing with that till it fits your desire.
Andrew

Uninstalled - can't get it to work at all, tried the fixes suggested in this thread but the chatbox stays permanently reloading until I manually hit refresh, then when I try to make a post I get a 'missing security token' message. Would love to get this to work, will reinstall next time their is an update.

What would be helpful for those having "Loading..." and security token issues is to let us all know if you're using vBAdvanced CMPS, and if so, is it installed to the same directory as vBulletin, and what version of both (vBa and vB) you're using.

Most problems seem to creep up when using vBAdvanced CMPS when it's installed in a different directory than vBulletin.

I've installed this on a message board for someone else.

With the bot, it looks like a bot trigger can't be just part of what someone typed, but rather the entire entry.

Example: if I use "hello" as a bot question, it'll respond with an answer if someone typed "hello", but not "hello there".

I'm wondering if anyone knows a hack with a workaround, to allow bot triggers to be regex entries rather than complete, exact sentences?

Avatars won't show up for me, I get a 1x1 transparent gif, unless it is an avatar that is uploaded to the site.

Any ideas or fixes?

You need to complete this step

To finish the upgrade, launch the script http://url_of_your_admincp/mgc_cb_ev...e_before_2.3.0 in your internet browser (replace url_of_your_admincp by the url of your admin control panel).
