Well i asked this on the actual vb advanced addon page but no answer so ill ask it here. Is there a fix for the issue, that when you activate the chatbox in the vb advanced index page, it max's out the width and destroys my skin. It works fine with my fixed width skin on the forum index page, but it stretches out the vb advanced index page..can you please help?

Formatting icons are missing

Three of my formatting icons are missing; I checked the image files and they are all there and up to date for all my styles. Only underline, italics, and bold are missing, and those are some of the three newest files in the misc/mgc_cb_evo/ directory. What can I do to get them back? Otherwise, the upgrade worked fine. Thanks, great mod.

It's because the german language is not uptodate.

You have to edit the mgc_cb_evo_x_has_posted_newpost_inthread_y phrase.

See how the english one is built and replace in the german translation

You can try diminishing the chatbox input size.

Well in this new version there are now 2 buttons for b u and i corresponding to on state and off state.

So you have to have :
mgc_cb_evo_b_on.gif
mgc_cb_evo_b_off.gif
mgc_cb_evo_i_on.gif
mgc_cb_evo_i_off.gif
mgc_cb_evo_u_on.gif
mgc_cb_evo_u_off.gif

The one of the default set are included in the zip file.

Same here. First time fresh installation 2.3.1 on vb3.8.1 and all I get is "loading". Searched on this forum and the developer website and see some people have the same issue, but there doesn't seem to be any solution. Will wait and see. Thanks!

Well I don't think it would solve the solution.

What you must understand is that if you change your usercp settings while the chatbox is running on another active page they won't be saved.

Unless you deactivate the formatting auto register
That must be it. Although I put the site down before the update, I still had the shoutbox on a tabbed window & I think a few users were idle (i.e. the ones that have the same issue as me).

I appreciate your time, I am sure I can figure out a fix for this.

great work!

Download 2.3.1 zip and upload the files from the files directory. Be sure to overwrite the one on your ftp.
Ok I will do that. But will I not lose all my permission settings then? And my shouts made with mgc chatbox evo?

No if you just reupload files you won't

You would be loosing the chats if you were deinstalling the chatbox but that's not what I ask you to do.

Well with latest version noone experienced loading issues. Those who experienced it had not upgrade the files or the product correctly or had non reverted templates.

Try also to load yui either from local or yahoo server (see general chatbox options).

Just found and fixed my usernames not showing problem. All it was is I was uploading the files in auto mode and I changed the upload to binary and now the usernames all show.
