Hi - our chatbox has been working fantastic, and is the most popular part of our site, but in the past week many of our members have said it isn't working - it just keeps saying "Loading" but the chat never shows up. It seems very intermittent - some members can use it fine, others it won't work. And a few minutes later it works again.

I have done all the upgrades today just to see if that helped, but its still happening. Any ideas?

OK You know how normally a user has to hit the BBCODE button to get the Fonts, Links, EMail, Image buttons to show up? Well I would like to make it so that the BBCODE buttons ALWAYS show up. I've got a buncha members all wondering where to change their font color and add images etc. So if the BBCODE buttons were always there, I think it would help resolve the issue a little.

I seen that there is an option to make it so that if the users click on BBCODE that it will always stay there even when they log out and log back in, but I think it's that initial getting them to click on it first, and I don't have time to help school every member on how things work.

Sooo I figure that there must be some sorta query that I can run so that it will make it so that the BBCODE buttons show up automatically for EVERY member. Does that make sense?

Under edit options of the chat box select chat display and then under that option there is an option "HTML Code for the usernames display". In that option you can remove teh brackets.

Another good news today ! I have improved the chatbox performances as suggested by a user a long time ago.

Only needed chats will now be retrieved upon refresh. Currently, all chats were retrieved at each refresh thus slowing down the refresh when lots of chats are displayed in the chatbox.

This should drastically increase the speed of the chatbox.

I still have to manage edited chat and solve a javascript blocking issue but that should be good

I think I'll release a new version of the chatbox next week.
Will the issue with the PM alert not working on be fixed with the next release?

Yeah just like skywalker said, just go into Chats Display, under the MGC Chatbox EVO options list.. Goto the section that says "HTML Code for the usernames display" and it should have this in the field...

I don't think that I have made that much upgrades.

Only 6 versions it's honestly not a lot.

But it's ur choice to uninstall, I respect that

Any differences between those users in term of rights in the chatbox and so on ? (Style, ...).

In fact it's in their usercp so unless they don't look at the options offered by the software, they can find it.

Yes it does make sense but there is no query for that. The only thing would be to make a change in the code to display the BBCODE bar collapsed by default.

The issue doesn't seem to be the same as yours, read more carefully.

Bitwise I asked you for admin account with full rights and ftp access (send by PM) in a previous post but no answer from you.

So before complaining more than that lets work on your issue together ;-)

What was it, I don't remember.

PM don't get sent or always sent even if disabled ?

I'm not complaining. just pointing out that someone had a similar issue. but your right, maybe I should read more closely. all I saw was "Loading.... but the chat never shows up." in his post and assumed. thats exactly what is happening to mine.

I'd be happy to give you admin rights. can you register at my forum and its yours. I do have another one installed but I'd really like to give this a try.

When you receive a pm you are suppose to get a pop-up saying you have received a pm, but I don't get the pop-up anymore even then I have it checked saying I want to receive the pop-up. It only happens on the pages I have the chat box on.

Plus I still receive this error "mgc_cb_evo_autocomplete is not defined" on all pages that don't have the chatbox. Could this be related to the PM pop-up?

It would be great if it where possible to only show who's chatting to certain usergroups. So even though they cant see the chatbox, they can still see there's activity. Please add this function.

Anyone know what might prevent 5.0 from working on 2 out of the 6 styles I have? 4.0 works pretty well on all but when I update to 5, apparently there's a conflict where BlockUI.js stays blocking and I have to refresh to get control back to my browser...

I'd really like to update and I don't mind modifying the two templates (one of the two is the one my users selected as the default...)

Any ideas on what I can tear up next?

Oh yes ok. I never experienced that so I don't know. We'll see once the new version is released. Don't hesitate to bother me so that I check out that

Yes the error is a known problem.

It will be corrected in the next version.

I don't see the problem the date is in your message.

I am sorry but I won't do that. I personnaly don't find that useful.

If you want certain usergroups to see who's online in the chatbox then give them the right to the chatbox. This is to specific sorry.

When BlockUI.js stays blocking which error do you get ?

In those 2 styles, are there any specific javascript features like jquery ?

Does the firefox consol error shows you specific error messageS ?

Thanks for the quick response. I moved back to version 4 as my users (what few they are) consider this the number one feature ever in a Vb board!

I don't have firefox but would be more than happy to go get it if it would help fix me up..

Oddly enough, there's no error that I can detect: As an example, if I want to enter a url or image, I click the approriate icon, the screen dims (similar to log off), the foreground entry box pops up as expected and if I hit cancel (for instance) - the entry box goes away but the screen and cursor never return.. If I refresh the entire page, all is well again...

I know I'm grasping at staws here as it obvious the product is perfect in all the other styles. I can't locate anything in the two oddballs that would interfere but will keep looking.

Perhaps I should wait and see what happens with a newer version later?
