Hey I don't want to search through 410 pages so sorry if this has been asked before but I have a simple problem.

I set my "Number of days before automatic chats removal" to 30 and every day all the chats are removed from the chat box and archives and I don't want that! This just started to occur. I removed the script and totally reinstalled it from scratch and it still does it.

I want to keep my chats for a good month before they are removed...but I can't seem to find out how or why its removing them! Thanks!

Hi Clement,

I hope that you'll fix problem with displaying chats when oldest are on top, and editor box on bottom.... And for everything else, we will wait next versions of chatbox I'm glad that you find your time to do this... Thanks!

7 more days... and counting...

Well in the archives, you have a select dropdown to show chats from yesterday, 2 days, ...

I checked the cron and it seems ok.

Hi, i'm having a few poblems with this.
I uninstalled this due to wanting to upgrade to VB4, it looked like it uninstalled ok, but after upgrading to vb4 I looked in the group permissions and all the chatbox settings are still in there - so if I save anything in that area it bugs out and gives me a database error. So that it means I can't save any user permissions at all for anything on my site. How can I remove these?

Any help would be great!

Yeah the archives seems to work when I select past days; the chats will show. But anyway to keep the normal chat box full of past chats without them being removed everyday? Thanks for the help!

I had a look at the chatbox code and it seems ok to me.

However I am wondering, do you have the notifications enabled in the chatbox ?

Then it's normal, if you have specified the chats and notifications to be retrieved within the same query then if notifications are fired before new chats then there will be more notifications and then no chats.

Not sure if I am clear ?
