If I disable chat.

I can promote to article.

Then re enable it, and all is fine, until I want to promote to article again.

It is happening, although not to me as I am an admin but if my super moderator creates they get the error.

Same here I have it disabled for now. Which makes my users unhappy.

i have the same problem as matthieugoua and zbosskiller maybe to do with fixed width?, also running in cms and seems to have a problem with page selection, when i replace index with forum

also placing {vb:raw vsachatbox} in templates does not seem to work

on another note its brilliant to see the best vb mod updated for 4 cant wait to get it working

thankyou Valter

Its really hard to find the templates for this mod.. because they are named Valter Templates... why not just make it simple and name it vsa_chatbox templates?

Thumbs up

Installed and working perfectly. Fantastic mod, thank you.

Any chance of some form of arcade integration? New high score gets shouted or something along those lines?

NOTE: Most of fixes has been made in templates, so revert hack templates when upgraded to 3.0.1.

Edit:
Error when promoting to articles will be fixed when someone gives me admin access to their forum.
I can not fix it on my forums as I don't get these errors.
