This hack looks great, the one issue I have though is with the permissions. It has the option to enter the usergroups that I don't want to view the chat, but the groups that I want to view the chat are secondary usergroups.

Example:
-Usergroup 2 (main usergroup) - can't view chat
-Usegroup 14 (secondary usergroup) - can view chat

So if I'm in usergroup 2 and also in the usergroup 14, then I still can't view the chat.

How can I get around this?

Thanks.

Well it would be nice if there were a way to alert forum users that there is activity in the chat box. Otherwise this goes unused.

I hope vB3 won't be turning into a bit of abandonware where the modding community is concerned - many of us aren't ready to move over to vB4 yet. Valter, any chance you could maintain your vB3 version a little while longer?

Thanks.
For anyone else looking to add simple permissions per usergroup, do this:

1. Don't put anything where it says "groups that cannot see the chatbox".
2. Open FORUMHOME and right underneath $navbar, put this code (whatever group id's you want):


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

I am having the same problem. Works fine on the Forums page but on the vBa portal it just says loading.

One thing to note about my install. My portal page is in my website root and vBulletin is in the /vb folder. So do I need to do something additional?

How do I modify the "Ask your questions in the forums. The ChatBox is for small talk" to add "Please do not post images in the chatbox"?
