Maybe you have it set too high? I would think every 2 seconds would put a huge strain on resources, especially if a lot of people are viewing the ChatBox at the same time.

I had it set at 60 seconds afterwards, and it still froze everytime the shoutbox updated.

I tried to create a channel. It wouldn't let me do that without creating a command as well. I called the command "test". When I typed in /test in the chatbox .. nothing happened, except that the message "/test" was posted.

I am not quite clear on what channels are, though I think they are basically different chat rooms... such as "join chat for discussing crazy stuff" or "chat for talking about why dogs are better than cats".

I am not clear on what commands are supposed to be, but I think they are things that happen when you type in /command... like in IRC, typing in " /me gives a high five"

would output

"Keyser520 gives a high five".

I also think, again not sure, but think, that a command would let you switch channels, too.

Am I on the right track? What am I missing?
With the last version, you are not forced to create a command, the command creation can be done along with the channel creation.

Have oyou installed the last version ?

My question: where are the forum styles directories ?

thanks for any help!
It depends of the styles you have installed on your forum.

OK, so in the Readme, I'm getting confused with the ambiguous directions.

First of all, the first thing I don't understand is "Upload the content of the "Images" directory in each of your forum styles directories." What style directories? I have no directory called "styles."

Secondly, "Import the MGC Chatbox Evo product". What's that mean? Where do you go? How do you do that?

I think if the directions were a little less ambiguous, it'd be a lot easier to download and install...
