everything works for me except showing forum posts / threads in the chat box - just a blank area, and the bot doesn't work.

I have found that when enabled the server gets silly load (try it yourselves - run the user title update counters with the plugin enabled and then disabled)

I'll have to disable this for now - shame cus its a great addon - we have over 200,000 chats in the db stored....

lol and you wonder why your getting high server loads, prune some chat.

tbh we over 3000 members and never pruned chats, this mod brought our server to a stand still and i had to uninstall, works fine again with clean install, but set it to prune chats

where on a very decent dedicated server too

i have a problem with the buttons not showing up just the links for:

refresh
bbcode
go
empty chat field
and so on

I just freshly installed 4.1.1 and this chat box was of the first 2 installs.



Can any one help with this problem. I tried to go through the thread but there is so many I got tired of searching. Any help would be appreciated. thank you in advance.

pruned to zero - it still kills the server - and its a quad core with 16gb of ram.

Switched to VSA chatbox - works like a charm

I'd seen other posts about server load issues and this mod. Personally am thinking of swapping over to vbShout.

If you tweak refresh settings and active users you should be fine with server load.. I have tried them all and this is the one I came back to. This is the best chatbox/room out there. it is simply awesome..I wouldn't change to Vbshout..no way..
