Perhaps I should make a /announcement remove command

Correct! I love this mod, but I also have a great desire to get it working as a page variable in vBadvanced. The center column restriction is not working well with my styles. It also appears to load much slower as a module.

Incidentally, I tried the page variable method with ibProArcade and it works perfectly. When making the necessary edits, I noticed the globalized variables required. On a hunch, I added these variables to ACP-->vBa CMPS-->Default Settings-->Portal Output Global Variables, but unfortunately it still freezes. Are there any other variables that need to be added? I am probably on the wrong track, but I am trying at least.

Found some minor bug, Not able to edit the shout wen its gone. (appears only in Opera browser)

Great job!
I haven't understood the bug you are stating can you describe it more precisely please ?
I'm trying my English is not that good.

You can edit shout's after sending in IE when you click on the text.
In the Opera browser you can't.
The pop-up menu is only disappearing after refresh the whole page.

Yes that's it Problem with first shout.

I'll fix that next week.



2/ Known bug that will be fixed

3/
Your english language is utf8 on your forum ?? Then it's normal that uploading the english language file is messing things up.
English language is normally ISO-8859-1 which is what is set in vB by default for its language.

What have you done on your forum to make languages behave like that ? Coz you only tell things but not what leads to the problems.
I talk about problems, which appear after uploading the language.xml file! Even the support stuff from vbulletin told me that it was cause by this product! And even though i should not be helped since its not an official product, the guyz fixed my database!

I think i made myself clear

It was working well when I tested it, I'll give it a try to see if something in the chatbox has screwed that integration.

About the popup menu, this problem with opera has already been reported. About edit it's strange, I'll have a look too then.

About edit there are two options:
  • own edit
  • all shouts edit
But there are no other specific edit options.

Yes Yes you have been clear but what I was telling is that if you upload english language which is not utf-8 type (but ISO-8859-1) you are sure to get into such problems.

English language and greek are not compatible together. To upload an english xml file to a greek language you would have to change the xml language type (line near top of the file).

I fear you may have misunderstood me here. I said "Incidentally, I tried the page variable method with ibProArcade and it works perfectly." I was stating this in hope that it may aid in the work to fix vBa page variable integration. The remainder of my post was detailing my unsuccessful effort to globalize variables in a manner similar to the method used by the ibProArcade integration.

So if i just change the encoding line on top of this xml doc, i get what i want? Lets say i type utf-8 (than ISO-8859-1) and it just works without messing up?
