Ok and error is ony showing on index.php ? not other pages ?

What have you exactly disabled ? only the chatbox through option or the whole product ?

If not the whole product please try to.

yes error only shows up on the forum homepage and not on other pages

great hack thanks...as i recall in the previous version there used to be a little x icon next to every chat line to quickly delete it. i know this has been replaced by a drop down list, but shouldn't there still be a little icon so that we know where to press?

thanks again

UTF issue possibly?

No seems not. To find out which product causes this error, try to disable one product at a time and you'll surely find the one who is messing things up.

The deletion is available from within that little dropdown menu so there is no need for a little x icon.

Btw now commands are independant from the chatbox so this wouldn't be a logical thing.

Oh strange, I'll have a look at it. Apostrophe should be ok though, I'll ran a test.

um another thing that's missing from this release but is still important. Usergroup permissions: in the old version, you could specify how many posts till they can USE the chat box.... however they could still see it. in the new version, you can only specify number of posts till they can actually see it and use it... on the previous version, i would let new regd see the chat box, and in that way theyll make an effort to post so that they could chat....

oh and the trash bin icon has never worked for me on either version.....still dont know what it actually does..

Yes it's a feature already requested see list on the top post

About the trash icon, it empty the input field that's all. I have to add tips on mouseover for all those buttons he he.
