If however, the default one isn't showing the (new) part and flashing, then something is wrong. I've not messed with the channels in a good year so make sure there's not an option to enable/disable it that's not ticked.
Is there an option to enable/disable because i didn't find any?

You'd have to ask MGC on that. I think it's part of the MGC Chat itself (inside a php file or script)....

And I'm not about to go searching through it...

VBDev, can you answer this buddy?

Guys, when installing MGC Chatbox I get this kind of error:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Any ideas what's going wrong?

DTPL, did you verify that file is in the zip, and you copied it to the above location?

You are not forced to activate the new message warning in channel and therefore don't necessarly need the _new one.

However you explicitly need the two others as they are used to display which of the channel is selected. You can't disable that part.

Hope that answers your question ?

So basically, HostGator keeps shutting down my site due to the insane server load that the ajax is using up. Like I think it took up 91% of the CPU at one point. How do I fix this? Because my site is just crashing nonstop or it's getting shut down because of it. Should I just reinstall the chatbox? Because this just started happening recentley, like August 19th.

Sadly, that's what you get when you have VPS hosting. The more people on that server, the less resources as a whole gets allotted to everyone as a whole.

Change the refresh to 30-60 seconds and disable it for guest viewers. That's your only option for VPS.

It was not an error...instead of buttons in the chatbox editor i had text that replaced the buttons.
But for some strange reason it is fixed now so everything is working like it should be.

Just wanted to post it here that my problem was solved lol.
Anyway thanks for the quick response here buddy.
