I'll update the chatbox package in the middle of the week once I'll have checked that all commands are consistent between packages.

A temporarly fix is the following :
1/ Edit the ban command
2/ In the phpcode chat display replace options by userinfo
Glad you found that problem as i still couldnt get the ban command to work and thought it was me messing up and eventually gave up in the end lol

Look forward to the update and keep up the great work

Hi,

I've been running this mod for a few weeks now and it seems to be running ok.

I've just checked my cpanel error logs and there's a few errors relating to this mod.

File does not exist: /home/<username>/public_html/home/<username>/public_html/forums/clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_cmd/mgc_cb_evo_cmd_pm.js
File does not exist: /home/<username>/public_html/home/<username>/public_html/forums/clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_cmd/mgc_cb_evo_cmd_ignore.js
File does not exist: /home/<username>/public_html/home/<username>/public_html/forums/clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_cmd/mgc_cb_evo_cmd_del.js
File does not exist: /home/<username>/public_html/home/<username>/public_html/forums/clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_cmd/mgc_cb_evo_cmd_ban.js
I don't have a /home/<username>/public_html/home/<username>/public_html/forums/clientscript/ folder on my server; it's root/<username>/public_html/forums/clientscript/.

Is there a file or setting where this location is set? So that I can check it out and maybe change it to the proper location?

Thanks

--------------------

EDIT:

I've remove the chatbox from my CMPS page and there's no errors now.

Hum, you where having such an error with the chatbox in vba ?

In the global_start plugin of the chatbox, You should remove the condition testing if forumpath is not empty this might come from there.

Errors

Firebug shows different errors when I first login usually and also at different times while navigating around my forum. I am on vb 3.6.4 and use vbadvanced. Here is one set of errors reported:

refreshAjax is not defined http://www.mydomain.com/forum/client.../mgc_cb_evo.js Line 253

I get about 10 instances of this error on many occasions.

This is certainly a javascript problem but that could be caused by another javascript bug.

Can u give me a ling to your website with a test account ?

I went to your website but no error fired.

Are you using the last version of firefox ? Have you tried emptying your cache ?

I use Firefox 2.0.0.12 and yes I dumped the cache. To repeat the errors all you have to do is go to my forum's homepage, login, wait until the chatbox reloads, then navigate to a couple of other pages on the forum, wait till the chat reloads and poof 10+ errors get reported in firebug. This time I attached a screen shot to better help you out with this.

Awesome addon. But it does not seem to be possible to post a "plus" (+) in the chatbox, it gets filtered out. What is the reason for this and how can I fix it? Posting a "minus" (-) is no problem, but + is not possible.... very strange

How do you make channels? I don't understand the: Name of the channel image and then it tells me I have not made a command: "Command attached to the channel". Is there some readme on how to make channels?

Also, your whole mod is infected with junk mac files that everyone will end up uploading! .DS_Store You need to remove this junk from your Mod zips!

Ok sorry for all the posts but I love the chatbox...

How do you use channels and the commands? Ive uploaded and installed a command. Where can we find some readme or manual for making new channels and using the commands. The supplied stuff has no real instructions for these.
