No It's not, unless I register the user IP upon chat, and then add the possibility to show user ip ?
Yes, that would work

Also, how can I delete guest posts? There is no drop down arrow beside their messages? I can remove them in the Archives section, but not on the main chatbox?
Cheers

I did not have this issue with the previous version, but since I uninstalled and reinstalled from scratch I cannot get changes to the permissions to save with PM and TEAM commands or channels. I select the revision and it displays the update message, but the changes are not there when you go back to confirm.

Prior to this last update, I had the chatbox showing properly in the Arcade. Since the update the chatbox has disappeared in the Arcade. I have checked the changes I previously made to the Arcade template and the arcade/functions/functions.php files and they are all still there. I have everything set the same for the "Display and position on forum" variables.

Was something changed that would have caused this to disappear?

Now it would be :
Action : Remove all chats of ---> Response : The chats were succesfully removed
Action : Remove the chat of ---> Response : Chat was succesfully removed
That's normal, the same phrase is returned for every shouts deletion wether you delete one or more.

This is why I'll add an option to retrieve smilies by their order in the smilies manager of the acp.

Ok I'll

That's normal, since the menu is not accurate when dealing with guests. And this is why I added the deletion tool in the archives

You mean you can't change permissions of commands ?

Your sentence is not that clear sorry I can't seem to understand you.

Which means ? Honestly I don't understand what you're trying to tell me.

No I haven't changed anything that would cause it to not appear in the arcade.

The instructions you followed where the one in the readme file ? You haven't recently updated the arcade ?

Correct. I can not change them for the PM and TEAM channels either. All permissions appear to have been set properly within usergroups.

I thought it was nice but when I tried to install it and found all those steps of doing things then redoing them I think I won't install. Why couldn't it be simpler like all other mods? Too bad!

This is a great mod and well worth the effort!!! It's the most popular thing on our forum. The developer spends MANY hours answering these questions and working on it, with little thanks in return!

Have some appreciation for the amount of work that goes into developing these things, and also providing them for all of us for FREE.

Hey don't get me wrong. I, in no way, said it was bad. I said it was nice and I still think it's great but you have to agree that there are so many steps to installing it and I don't want to do anything that would put my forums at risk. I am kind of a layman when it comes to coding so I decided to keep away. I would really love for it to become simpler to install because from what I can see, it is the best with all its features.
I have never been a rude person to say that some mod is bad even if it was cause I know and appreciate the coders' time and efforts. So, please execuse my remark as it wasn't intended to offend anyone. When I said too bad, I meant for me cause I wanted so bad to install it.

I really like the chatbox & my users are enjoying it at my forums. I am pretty good with tech stuff, but I also had a lot of problems when installing this mod. I think the main issue is the way the folders are set up. I missed a lot of different files when I was uploading. Everything that is going in the Images/Misc folder should be in one folder, KWIM? It was a bit of a headache trying to figure out what I missed, but once it's up, it's up. I definitely do NOT recommend installing this hack if someone isn't really experienced with computer stuff.

I also have the problem when people's first post isn't showing up. Inactive mode is turned off, so I know that isn't causing the problem.
