General help
The MGC Chatbox Evo is really easy to use

You can :

Send chats : you just have to enter the text in the dedicated input field and then to validate it by pushing the return key ou by clicking on the OK button.
Format the chats :
once you un-collapse the chatbox formatting toolbar by clicking on the BBCode button, you have access to different formatting options for your chats. You can format a chat by selecting a part (or the totality) of it and then select one of the buttons/list. You can also add empty formatting tags by selecting nothing and clicking one of the buttons/menu thus allowing you to add the chat text afterwards between these tags.*
Access to the different channels : you can have access to different channels restricted to only some usergroupds or for specifics use of the chatbox. The different channels are accessible from the buttons on the left of the chatbox.*
Edit your chats (or others chats) : the edition of a chat can be done by a simple double-click on it.*
Use specific commands : some commands can be accessible in the chatbox depending on the will of the administrator(s) of your forum. These commands let you execute specific actions of formatting, management, etc... You will herebelow the information on the command which are accessible to you. You must notice that you are not forced to use the command prefixes (/command_name) when you use them in the channel they are attached to (except in the general channel).*

* : Depending on the settings chosen by the administrator(s) of the forum, you might not have access to all these features.

Read the readme... Your permissions and images probably aren't set.

Make sure you have the images uploaded to ALL styles.

Make sure you set permissions for ALL groups.

It also seems to crap out in IE, don't know why. The General Help also seems to show but when you click on show unsecured content it goes away. I am using an SSL, so I'm not sure if that is also an issue or how to fix it. Thx

If you look at my site in IE 10 (which is what I have) it doesn't even show half the chat icons!! In FF it does, but in both browsers I am getting that stupid box (General Help) until I allow all content via the browser. Please look at IE at and see whats going on. I have no idea about that or the General Help box. Thanks!!!

OK, figured out I wasn't logged in, thus IE not showing the chat box icons. HAhahaha. I use FF but was cross browser testing. Anyways, I still have the issue with the general box pop up...

^^I have this exact same issue after upgrading to 3.4.0 just now.

All permissions are correct. Entire site is SSL. Administrator (me) has all permissions and it doesn't work for me either. Tested in IE and Chrome

You'll have to edit scripts to run it like that.

Pity, I checked your site in both IE 10 and Chrome. It has the dreaded "loading" dialog. Do you have it disabled for unregistered/not logged in?

Me either buddy. Wait for VBDev to come back on. He'll know what to check/fix. I've never encountered this issue, and the only obvious quick fix would be to host the remotely located scripts locally and edit the RPC to point locally.

Ok. Well, wait for VBDev to reply. He should know. Another member also has a post on priority support for this. So I expect he should get it resolved in a somewhat timely manner.
