I have removed the old version and then installed this new version i-e 1.0, everything is working fine except the "Alternate background color" option. The problem which I am facing is that the alternative background color of the rows is not appearing during the chat, however when I refresh the whole page then it appears fine.

I tried it in both FF 3 and IE 7, but the same getting the same problem/glitch.

PS: I am using vbulletin 3.7.3 PL 1

Edit: One more problem, the chatbox is not coming out from the inactivity mode even after hitting the refresh button many times. (working on page reload)

Thanks.
And by the way, how can I just *remove* the rows' background color? I just don't want it to have background color, as the chat itself has one.

Downgrading stop your problems perhaps but doesn't help finding out what's wrong in the current version.


I ended up doing this too - our users were getting mad about not being able to see the chatbox, not being able to get past the loading screen, things like that. To keep peace I ended up downgrading it. I went back to version 0.4.0 which was the last version that was working well for us. I have made a few posts on this thread, and tried all the suggestions I've found but it still wasn't working.

The problems are very intermittent, and just seem to affect some people. I've asked them to clear their caches and that has helped for some people but not all. Some can see it with IE and not Firefox, others can see it with Firefox and not IE. Others the screen sticks on loading and won't go any further. One member could make 3 chats, then it would freeze up every time. Sometimes chats would come up as duplicates, then mysteriously disappear. Very strange intermittent problems! It seems to be working much better back on 0.4.0

Hey, do you mind doing a test like later, or tomorrow? I've fixed so many sites with the loading issue. Your issues are not typical of any others here especially the duplicate chats. Either an uninstall wasn't done right, or you have ghosted tables in sql.

Update: I've now seen the double posts on a forum. This is on a fresh forum almost. I'll look into it on my end as well.

Sweet. Just setup something with a decent password. I'm currently working on importing a site with 65K+ users and got another hour or less left. If you want, hit me up on AIM/Yahoo (info is in my profile) if that's easier. And you're a doc huh? My pops is a GP.
