File version: 3.6.7"

Thought this was compatible with 3.7.x how am I going to get around this? as in the vbulletin options, all of the MGC options are in spanish.

Helppp
You have to select : Ignore language version when importing the language

Btw it's french not spanish

Hey VBDev,

Got another feature I would love to see. I have perhaps hundreds of members who are using your shoutbox frequently and I decided to make some shoutbox rules for it. Because I've got some lame people who like to sign up for an account and spam in the shoutbox, I decided to make a 5 posts minimum rule before someone can use the shoutbox.

What I would like to have is the option to send someone a PM when they've reached the restrictions needed in order to use the shoutbox. This way a PM can be send to a member saying that he is now able to use the shoutbox and also include the shoutbox rules in the PM so people can't complain that they didn't know about the shoutbox rules.

Do you think this can be possible? I think it will be very handy to have. Not only for me but for everyone since you can put anything in the PM that you want.

Thanks in advance mate.

Kind regards,

Bozza

Wow i love it, however af spam filter would be nice, and maybe a possibility to warn users (3 warns or so = ban). The filter could automatically warn users. Just an idea.

Hi!

I am going to upgrade to your chat system! Was using another one but I really need your channels feature.

I was actually looking for one that would do two things

Allow the users to select a color for their name---makes reading much easier with diff colors

And

allow the option to hear a little alarm-(some little notification sound) when a new posting is made. this would allow the user to collapse the box and continue working while waiting to hear from someone they had said something to.

If you know a patch or a way to hack this in I would be very grateful!

OH---and the ability to limit the smilies choosen. I provide some tiny and a lot of big smilies for the posts---but would like to keep it small in the chat.

I will be toying with creating a subdirectory of smilies dedicated to the chat today---but given that I am not a computer person any help you might provide would be excellent!

Can't get Ban command to work

Vbulletin Version: 3.6.4

The ban command doesn't work for me. I can ban a user, but it has no effect. Nowhere does it say the user is banned and they can still post in the chatbox. If I try to ban the user again, it says the user is already banned.

How do you un-ban a user? If it says a user is banned, and I've removed all of their chats from the chatbox, I have no idea what to do to clear the ban.... that really didn't work anyways.


I just need to make sure all users are un-banned, because I'm going to remove this command until it's working. I've set up a special user group in the mean time so I can prevent access to the chatbox. It would be nice to have this command working.

I don't see the need for such a feature sorry.

Once they reach the number of posts, they do see the chatbox and the chatbox rules button so this is IMO sufficient.

I won't do a feature to allow users to change their usernames as the chatbox is integrated into vBulletin and so takes the vBulletin username colors.

About the sound, I don't understand you at all, when user collapse the chatbox, it's doesn't refresh anymore so there couldn't be any warning !?

About the smilies, I am sorry but I can't add this feature into the chatbox as I did developped it for another user, he paid me for it, and thus can't release the result of this job (I wouldn't agree if I did).

I have posted a fix for this command in some of the previous posts.

Check the chatbox help to find out how to see which users are banned and how to unban them

Post #? I was hoping I wouldn't have to read through 1000 posts to find a fix. I did a search on this thread and didn't find anything about a fix.

We cannot figure out how to get the second channel icon to appear.

Also we are in desparate need of a tone option. So that when you talk to someone you can hear when they respond instead of needing to sit and watch a box. We are a work site so people are reading and posting etc not just waiting for the next response in the box. Chatzy.com has this option and presently we keep several windows open and can hear when some one logs a response and can flip back to the site to read and respond. Just a little beep tone or bell tone that sounds when a new message is added.

Needs to be a user option--enable and disable from the chat box itself for when you want to ignore what is going on there.

Any thoughts?

I am NOT a computer programer so I am a begger looking for a morsel.......you could start with could it be done and if yes---could pm your fees to do it.
