Can anyone help me with this issue?

I'm having an issue where the channel images do not show up on the main page, but do show up in the full chat page. Can't seem to figure out how to fix this issue. I tried in default style and issue is still there. I'm using VB 4.2.2 and MGC 3.4.0

EDIT: Silly me, figured it out. Had to activate it on forumhome, duh!

Hi,

How can I make the chatbox to sit on the SIDEBAR?

I already added it in the "Create Forum Blocks" but it doesn't show...

Thanks

is it possible for my usergroup moderators to receive the reported notifications instead of the administrators?

In reading through this thread, the "loading" issue has gone unresolved for years.

I have the same issue, tried all the suggestion in this thread, and nothing works.

TO THE DEVELOPER:

Isn't it time you had a serious look at this issue, determine the root of the problem, and fix it? I moved a 7 year old site to a new server, and decided to upgrade the chat box. Big mistake.

Uninstalled

Exploit been found in MGC, My forum was nearly compromised because of this flaw. Luckily the hacker was testing, rather than destroying. I believe he's sent you an email, if you don't fix I will be pushing this forward to vBulletin staff.

Although if any vBulletin staff want to PM me and I'll explain how to re-inact the flaw, Which can I say gives out. username, salted password.

Decided today to give this a try again.... Read this reply and quickly changed my mind.
Why on earth is this mod not put into the graveyard or download link removed?
If what silvermerc said is correct then this is not a small issue rather a HUGE one.
Isnt it the responsibility of the staff here to take down mods with known security flaws?
Sheeeeeez!!

It will/would be taken down once it has been reported to a admin/moderator and verified. Afaik it has not been reported and verified yet.

Well on their site, it seems the admin have gone awol.. no replies... no licence files issued after you buy pro version.. few people complaining about their paid for versions not getting activated.. i would heed caution until MGC himself can explain as he is owner and has not been online since 7/7/14

I dont wish to bad mouth MGC as his products are very good... just that he needs to explain him self or one of his fellow admin

Thanks

Hi guys,

I am not away, I was on holiday.

Though I must admit that lately I have lacked a bit of time for the chatbox but I am not gone.

I am going to contact silvermerc for more information.

Regards,
Clément

It's not that easy you know.

They changed the whole code when developping vB5 so I'd have to recode everything...

Hello,

I haven't add any answer from him, guess he perhaps is on holidays.
