What is the process of upgrading to 4.2 if im currently on 3.8 and have the 3.8 version of this mod installed (v3.0.0)?

1) Should I first upgrade, uninstall it and install the 4.x version of this mod?

2) Uninstall it before upgrading to 4.x then install the 4.x version of this mod after upgrade of forum is complete?

Also, would uninstalling remove the the tables originally created by this mod? What are those tables?

FYI - I have the pro version but site (http://www.mgcproducts.com/icart.php...ct&productid=4) says that it supports up to 4.1.x, will it work fine with 4.2.x?

Thanks!

Anyone have an idea what the problem could be?

- vb4
- seemed to installed fine
- chatbox activated
- tried all the display options
- didn't mess with any other settings

edit: NEVERMIND......needed to allow admins to view it...wierd
I got the same problem, where did you set to allow admins to view it????

In your admin CP -> usergroup manager
You have to set the options for each usergroup

Will donate $10 to whoever can fix my security token issue.

Been using chatbox for like 2 years, never an issue... Suddenly today using Chrome & FireFox I cant see the chat.. If I try to type in it, I get the missing security token error msg.

Tried 3 different browsers.. no luck

Help? $20!
