I've had the archive locked down from day 1 so I can't confirm it myself, but several people have been reporting that in the 3.8 thread too. Anyway, pointer on how to block guests from the archive also there: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1866133

I'd like to see an "Ignore"-function for this. Also I would like to have "private room" features! What do you think ?

I noticed a problem with this.

Users can delete their posts in the CB even with the option for them to not be able to turned off.

They go into the archive and edit their post by putting 3 spaces and hitting enter before hitting done.. and it will delete their post.

Is there some way to fix this.. or an option where I can turn off regular members from editing in the archive? etc?

LANGUAGE AND PHRASES >>> SEARCH IN PHRASES. Search 'CHATBOX', Change the field and add what ever you like.


Good Mod, few things need sorting tho

*When click user name, says user is not signed up - should take you to there profile.
*Should show time of post to keep everyone up to date.

Other than that, fantastic.

UPGRADED.
