I'm currently having the same problem, User can type a message and press OK. However, the message is not clear and not display on the chatbox. In order to see the message display on the chatbox, the user have to refresh the page.

Any idea ?

Everything works with the default settings but I've yet to figure out how to get the chatbox working in the VB4 sidebar.

I used the mgc_cb_evo_var in the MGC Chatbox Evo Block and tried creating a widget. Nothing is working. I bet I'm overlooking something simple. Any suggestions?

Hi. After the update, now I have a permanent "Loading..." everytime I refresh the forumhome... I need to refresh manually, with the arrow icon, and that solve it, but it's pretty annoying.

Any fix? Can you help me? Thanks!!!

This sometimes happens for products that use the datastore.

I'm pretty sure that's a paid add-on.

Reinstall the chat again. Meaning upload all the files again, install, then FOLLOW the directions on how to remove it step by step and that should resolve it.

Do you have more information than that in your PHP error log ?

Hello. I have been using the chat box for a while now, it works great and I am very happy with it.

One question though, the site speed where the chat box is viewable is certainly slower, are there any tips to improve the load speed?
