Hi,

What is the error you get? And did you set permissions if you mean you cant see the channel?

Think it's a bug.

Ok I mark this is in the bug list and will check it out.
Was this with any /me text or was there a specific text ?

Seems any text is accepted but not able to display with the other chats in IE. I typed test, 'test' with single quotes and "test" with double quotes just to try to figure out anything to make it work but once sent, the chat window in IE would freeze with only the refresh spinning icon continually spinning. Other users were obviously unable to chat until I deleted the chat with /me in it. Firefox displayed each with no problems.

Hope that helps and again, thank you.

A node doesn't exist. FireFox is more forgiving when it comes to coding errors. The fix I've incorporated is as follows catching any error that may happen.

This fixes the /me and /slap and possibly any other display issues of special commands in IE.

... and verified as working.

(THANKS!)

I commented out lines 2104 through 2112 and inserted your code and Voila!, its working for both /me and /slaps...

Awesome

had a user report an issue on IE8 where he doesn't see the dropdown menu icon to the left of the username. Could this be related to the fix posted?

Just thought I'd mention here - don't know if it has been before and I'm not reading through 100+ pages! - be careful when uninstalling this. I uninstalled it via the products section of admin CP (vb 4.0.3) and my forum started throwing a few database errors at me. Thankfully not in the user areas, just in admin CP. Mostly relating to trying to edit / make new usergroups... it seems to think that the MGC permissions should still be there, and gets confused when it can't find them. Had to import the product again to solve it and just leave it turned off... as yet haven't found a way to fully remove it without database errors.

Hi,

There is a readme file that came with this product. It explains how to install it, but also how to uninstall it. Follow the instructions and you should be fine.

Well not sure because that fixes the issue with chatbox not refreshing when /me or /slap chats are present in the chatbox.

Which browser are you using ? Do you have /me or /slap chats ?

Ive tried pretty much any browser. Fire Fox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Safari.

I works perfectly my PC and my fathers on all these browsers but the chatbox doesnt work on the laptop, and a few people registered on my site.

yes /slap and /me are on and they work to..

LIKE I SAID. the whole thing works perfectly for me on my PC and my fathers. just no on the laptop or a few others on my forums.. the shouts just dont load it says loading the entire time and the little loading symbbol is just refreshing away. some people can see some of the chats just not all of them

for example, 1 user can see all of certain users posts but not mine nor anyone elses just can only see that one others posts.
