Well as it has been two years since being released, you can see that the developers working on vB5 is almost none.

Is this because of no PHP hooks availability for vb5?


they mark it as "BRB Needs Review" yesterday here: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-10333. Is this sound good?

That would be party of the reason, other reason most of the old developers just are not around.

As far as marking it as BRB Needs Review, only time will tell.

Can someone help me, I want to be able to add the chatbox to a custom page (php page) that I created, I have a template linked to that page too.
I tried adding this: {vb:raw vsachatbox} to the template but the chatbox still isn't appearing.

Hello everyone!

I have the same problem!

It always occurs in Internet Explorer and sometimes in Google Chrome.

Problem: The Forum page also open inside of the Chatbox! It occurs on the first page load and normalizes when refresh the page. It occurs to unregistered users, my chatbox view is available for this group.

It happened in the VB 4.03 version and still the same problem in VB 4.22 version.

I appreciate any support to my problem.

Go to AdminCP > Plugins & Products > Plugin Manager > find the "VSa - ChatBox - MN" plugin and edit it.

Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And paste the following under it:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This will prepend https://href.li/? to all links, all links will then go to href.li which is a service to hide the HTTP referrer.

Oh thanks dave! Appreciate it!

It is working! Yay but there is a big issue

is there a way to add a exclusion? like my owndomain.com?
So that links to own site wont be included together in to https://href.li

Yes there is a way. I think it is enabled by default. In the options under permissions, there is an option that says, "Usergroups NOT able to view ChatBox (comma separated ID list)." There is also an option for, "Usergroups able to view ChatBox but not post messages."
