See, I am helpfull sometimes.

Glad you got it worked out. Now think about the database backups prior to adding any hack/plugin. It will save you from stuff like this. And that template modification system helps too. Glad you got it working!

Probably because you didn't read the readme?

By default, the chatbox is disabled in the usergroups. Turn it on in each usergroup.

That should be the easy fix. Isn't that where you add that line to the top of the file VB?


WARNING :

For users which possess:
- a vBulletin 3.6 version < 3.6.10
- or, a vBulletin 3.7 version < 3.7.0 RC4

There will be a javascript error due to Jelsoft major changes ...

To make the mod work with this vBulletin version, edit the mgc_cb_evo.js file and add at the top : var SECURITYTOKEN = "0";

He's using vB3.7.1 so I don't think so

I'd like to see an option that allows a user to completely hide out the chatbox. Maybe this was suggested or not, or I must've missed it.

Make sure you read the readme. If you did and missed this try it... Also did you try the other styles and see if it displays?

-------------------------------
Integration in IBProarcade
-------------------------------

The integration in the arcade can only be done by activating the display chatbox on defined pages in a variable (not the one under the navbar).
Here is the process you must follow to achieve this integration :
- Go in the admincp in the "Display and Position" options
- Activate the option "Display the chatbox on defined pages of the forum in a variable" or the "Display the chatbox on defined pages under the navbar"
- In the pages list, add "arcade" and then validate
- Open the arcade/functions/functions.php et search for "function do_output($output_array)"
- After "// add additional needed variables" here, add : global $mgc_cb_evo,$mgc_cb_evo_var;
- Finally, if you are using the "Display the chatbox on defined pages of the forum in a variable", edit the ARCADE template and add $mgc_cb_evo_var where you want the chatbox to appear
Do you get a security token error in this? If so, try this... If not, don't add it.
For users which possess:
- a vBulletin 3.6 version < 3.6.10
- or, a vBulletin 3.7 version < 3.7.0 RC4

There will be a javascript error due to Jelsoft major changes ...

To make the mod work with this vBulletin version, edit the mgc_cb_evo.js file and add at the top : var SECURITYTOKEN = "0";

Did you delete the default? Not smart. That's why you disable the default for times like this.

Did you do what it says in my previous post about intergrating it into the arcade?

HOw does one actually unban a user from the Chatbox. Banning is easy enough but how the heck do you reverse it?
