FIXED THE LOADING ISSUE, at least the one I was having. I was using html in my title input field through the admincp for the chat box. I just changed it to plain text with no html, and it loads beautifully!

Cayton. a few things here I'd like to point out.

1. Always take a backup before you do anything.
2. "someone attempted to" <--- Did you read the logs and find out who?

With that said, I have no knowledge of this install and I messaged VBDev to see if he did.

I do however see a post on the forum stating an error was encountered and you removed access, thus prohibiting anyone from fixing it.

http://www.mgcproducts.com/showthrea...ull=1#post5605

[Yes I am sorry this was my fault as per the email I sent you, I am really sorry for that.

It seems your website is fixed now but you disabled the accounts ?

If you want me to install the chatbox (this time I'll do it not late at nights...) please enable it again.

As said in my email install funds will be refund as a gift to cope with my mistake.

Clément

Hello,

The ionCube PHP loader is needed for the PRO version as stated in the requirements.

It's a decryption tool necessary to run the encrypted files of the PRO version.

Which host are you on ?

It was answered.

Now do I need specific coding to put notifications in sideblock. I see the option for it, but it doesn't work, it messes with the chat, makes it appear and disappear. THanks

As I stated in the PM I sent you, I recognize I indeed did a mistake (error is human...) when installing the chatbox but I sent you an email as soon as I discovered the issue.

So don't tell me I didn't warn you I made a mistake.

Btw, I offered you to refund the install fees, help you fix my mistake and install the chatbox for free once it's fixed but got no answer.

So please, at least tell the thruth... And don't use this thread regarding paying mods, this is not the place.

Do you see the notifications in sidebar block when you go in the forum blocks manager ?

Look in the chatbox help, if you have enabled the ban command.

No. When I select the notifications to be in side block (vb4) my chat flashes on and off the screen.

If I just have the side block enabled, nothing shows up. I included a screenshot of the evo_chat side block settings. I may just be missing some code. I have tried with text/html/php all selected. Still nothing. Thanks for the help

Clement: could you please address the issue of not having any commands and the drop down not working? Its a major issue as I cant even ban people from my chat.

I suspect this is caused by the PHP5.3 new by reference deprecation and the vb3.8 fixes that PaulM posted for this.
See the previous 2 pages for screenshots and explanation.

Did a search in this thread and nothing turned up unless I missed it...

Installed this on a VB 3.7.2, it works fine, but when enabling the PM tabs function the box disappears and it looks like this:


Turning off the PM tab feature the box returns to normal functionality. Is there something we're missing here?

Outside of that, one of the better plugins made. Good work.

You have to go into your "User Groups" and enable it for the user groups you want to see it.
