I want to thank you a million for the extremely well created update, or reincarnation!
The features are awesome! The performance is great! The code seems to be looking very well!!

The commands importing/exporting is simply genius!

Thanks again!


ps. we use the shoutbox on every CMPS page simply by putting the mgc_chatbox_var thing in the header

You mean through a command, being able to open one of the forum sections by giving its forumid ?

For example, if you have a forum with id 5 you would type : /fopen 5 and it would open the forum in a new window ?

I know it works with vbadvanced when you are in the same folder as your forum.

But if you use vbavanced with the forum in a directory it won't work ! I suppose you're not in that configuration

I think there is an error in the spanish language xml file.

I'll check that out later in the day.



Oh yes you're right ! there is a little bug for the unregistered users, will correct that.

About the usergroup default text color, what did you encountered exactly ? Which browser where you using ?



You encountered that error in the index page ?
its not working... =(

That's correct. We had such problems with vbGallery aswell, I think we fixed it by replacing all urls in MGC php & js files and templates. The urls should be set to the vbBBurl variable, instead of leaving out url, and using relative urls/paths.

If you have knowlegedin javascript, php and html you can handle it yourself by creating a new command through the dedicated system in the admincp.

Some clue to do the forum open command :
  1. Create a js file in clientscript/mgc_cb_evo_cmd containing a function that take an url string as parameter and just open a new window (window.open javascript function) at the url given as function parameter
  2. Create a new chatbox command through the admincp. And configure it somehow like the ban or del command which doesn't return anything but just execute. You'll have to add in the php code executed on chats sending code that contains :

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    This code is not tested and written on the fly so you should perhaps dig a bit to correct it. You'll also to add the name of your js file to include in the command parameters.
Don't hesitate to ask me questions if you need help on figuring out how to do it. If you have not the skills to do that just wait for me to work on it

Yes I know, I just have to write some code to make it work for both with a single version of files

Can you give me an url to your forum + test account access to have a look (you can do it by pm if you don't want to show it to everyone.

What do you mean by that ? Isn't the announcement above the chatbox for that purpose ?

Yes but you don't have quick reply in ajax now am I wrong so it did fix the problem by avoiding direct quick reply without page reload ?

Which error did you get ?

Do you have the javascript debugger app installed on your firefox copy so that you can test which js error it is ?
