'Close' button redirecting page

Hi,

For those of you who have this installed on their vBulletin, are you having issues with the 'Close' button. It's in the list when you click on the little blue/white arrow next to a chat.

Mine closes the box, then immediately links to '/forums/#mgc_cb_evo_top', which isn't the chatbox. It happened as well when I clicked the 'Close' button on the actual developers website.

It's really annoying.

Has anyone had this trouble?

Thanks,
hilaryl

I'm not sure of your exact mobile template circumstances, but we have a mobile skin that automatically gets assigned if a user is on a mobile device. The Chatbox in full screen didn't work in this skin, it just said 'This content is not available on mobile' (something like that).

I ended up creating an overwrite for the Chatbox template to make it direct to our desktop site style - this way people on their mobile can still see it and interact with it.

Hope that helps

like it, but problem in a dark skin

the chatbox is nice and out users like it, but on a dark skin the input becomes black text on a black background. Not exactly easy to read.

Any hint what I can change ?

Does anyone know what that is and how to fix it?

Thank you very much!!!


I have asked Clement about this MANY times here and on his site, and he doesn't respond!
since the mgc_cb_evo directory is concerned, it is obvious that the errors are related to this plugin.

Nice support!

I would respectfully ask that the information on this mod be changed from "supported" to "unsupported" given the developer's lack of response to questions/problems.

Thank you.

That is not something that is up to the staff, it is up to the developer.
Just because a mod says it is supported, does not mean that it is, and visa-verse.

Edit your vaispy.php file and find....

Directly under $navbar, add....

Save.

Reload /forums/vaispy.php and it should be at the top of the page.

I hope this comes in useful to someone.

I have tried this, and using {vb:raw mgc_cb_evo_var}, and with script names in the section 'List of the other forum pages'. Only with script names in that section will the chatbox show on the page, but, it stuck on 'Loading' can anybody please help

Installed, but immediately uninstalled when I found that it insists on using edit fields with the same font color as the background and not publishing these as stylevars so I can fix it.

wasted time installing and configuring this.

Heads up for anyone that wants to buy the pro version of this mod. The support is crap. Absolute crap.

People still using a chatbox vs the much better Facebook style chatbar? WOW CometChat is by far the best chat there is!

Yes, there is many sites using this, or the ones by DBTech or Valter.

I run a small forum for our local car club. As nice as cometchat is, I don't believe we need something like it.

MGC was great, until we changed the domain of our site. Because of this, the licence file is wrong, and it's been going on 9 days without a response from the author to change it for me.

9 days. That's completely unacceptable.
