I have noticed following:

VB 4.2.2

Chat 3.3.0
chat works, but when you type messages in, nothing happens until you refresh browser.

Chat 3.4.0
getting stuck in constant "Loading" until you hit refresh button.

Looks like a bug to me, choose your poison, either 3.3.0 or 3.4.0 whatever works for you.

Hope this issue will be resolved soon by the developer as chat is great, but this bug is very annoying.

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

The whole page load or the chats load ?

What is your website url ?

Do you have mod_security installed on your server ?

There is an option in MGC Chatbox Evo : Chats display settings.

followed your instructions below, no change

Loading Issue Troubleshooting

This issue is usually caused by Mod_Security on Apache
1.To check if there is a Mod_Security issue: AdminCP > Maintenance > Diagnostics > Problematic Webserver Modules > CLICK SUBMIT
2.If Mod_Security has "yes" then apply this fix:
3.edit/create .htaccess and add the following:
<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>
4.Close and save it. Place this in the root of the forum and restart the web service.

Hi there,

I currently have this installed on my site, but whenever I close the shout box (only have it open for a few hours once a week, during a football match) it forces the forum to crash where I have to reboot the server to get it up, or sometimes have the DB repaired.

Any ideas why this is happening? It's almost as if there are however many people in the shout box, and when it's shut they're all thrown back into the forum which overloads it. My hosting package is good, I've upgraded since this started happening to try and combat it but to no avail.

Thanks
Alex

Hi. I have a problem with this. I have it on my forum (playadictos.net) and everything worked fine until today... it's loading all the time, I can't see anything.

I cleaned cache, repaired tables, etc... all maintenance. I even reset the hosting...

Any advice?

Shared hosting? Maybe your host disable the script because of the server load.

If you have the Chatbox infinite loading bug, modify the /forum/mgc_chatbox_evo_ajax.php file line:

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

to two lines:

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

The bug is regarding the PHP Version 5.3 and above and is caused by an outdated function as the official support posted here:
http://www.mgcproducts.com/showthrea...ving-the-forum

I reported the bug here:

I evaluated this add-on in December. After uninstalling, it left behind some trouble. For example, I was unable to modify or add VB usergroups.

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'mgc_cb_evo_permissions' in 'field list'
Error Number : 1054

In case anyone runs into this same problem, I found this to be the solution:
