Is there or would it be possible to add a section in the users CP to totally disable it?

Thank You.
Under edit options there is an option to choose whether to show the chat box.

Sheesh. I have like 100+ hours into helping people in this mod and it's not even mine. Ya people need to breathe! I get just as fed up when something doesn't work, but finding the issue helps VBdev too..... If I didn't spend so much time on the loading issue, I'd never have known the mod_security was one of the reasons.

PM me ur site info and a test admin account if you want me to look into it... .If you got it working, let us know too.

I am sure it's something simple but I have the ChatBox up on my forum (v 3.7.2) and it looks great but when I type in the text box and hit enter or click go the text doesn't appear in the chatbox. Any clues?

[QUOTE=VBDev;1592427]

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


Hi - sorry for not answering this sooner, I've been on holidays. No, there's no difference in terms of rights to use the chatbox. And it happens intermittently to the same user at different times - sometimes it works fine, sometimes it doesn't! In fact, I'm in an internet cafe right now, and it won't work for me, but it works fine all the rest of the time for me.

If you would like an administrator account to look at our site, please let me know and I'll pm you the info.

Thanks!!

If it works one place and not another, it's cookies, or the server.

I have a suggestion for this mod which I love. I know you have a couple of add ons like the me and delete commands and others. Would it be possible to create an add on to this that would let users know in the shout box when they receive a new private message like if I was chatting in teh chat box and I receive a PM I see a message in the chatbox saying that I have received a PM. Just a suggestion.

I am not talking about the private message chat. I am talking about when you receive a private message in your inbox. You know you receive a pop up saying you have receive a private message from..... I thought it would be a nice feature to add that a message would display that you have received a new private message in your inbox. Something like "skywalker2208 you have received a new private message from.....". The only reason I bring this up is because sometimes members don't know when they have received a new private message because the page doesn't refresh only the chat box does and members tend to say hey skywalker2208 I sent you a private message. Get it?

Oh ! No sorry I won't do that it's fully outside of the chatbox scope honestly.

For me it's not a chatbox functionnality.
