Also, in the admin control panel, while all the directions/individual pages are in English, the pulldown box titles under 'MGC Chatbox Evo' are also in French.

I can't seem to find an option to change those to English, other than translating them individually. Any suggestions?

One other stupid question - where can I change the color of the box?

Thanks again!
You can change chat here in Chats formatting and sending in the admincp, look around and you will see where to edit the other fill in boxes.

Is there a "SEARCH" function in this mod ...?

Seems odd ... but it appears as though the ability to "SEARCH" chat messages is missing form this tool.

Perhaps I don't see it ...?


Thanks!

*EDIT*

And if I disable 'slap' in addition to the three above, all warnings disappear? I suppose I have my workaround now, but it is quite odd.

I added $mgc_cb_evo_var to a page and it displays fine, but i'd rather see the full chat window

Or, is it possible to edit the template? or display of the full page, so I can add a video feed to it?
Not sure what you mean ?

There are options that need to be set to your expected text in english.

I'll in the next release provide translation to those who only want default text (with instructions of course on how to install it).

[/QUOTE]

Which box ? Chatbox is using default style colors and so on.

This is the only CB that works superb with imgur hosted images either in GIF or jpeg formats. All other CBs including cyb etc fail when dealing with imgur.com

Well, I believe it depends on how you banned the person. If you click the ban user in the drop down menu next to their name, I believe that is a cron job so it will unban them automatically after some time. If you use the /ban syntax and specify for a certain amount of days or whatever, you can use /ban show to unban the person.

Yes there were but it was reported before them,but there was /slap commands at the time of the report.

EDIT:Ok I can confirm its the commands that are causing it but don't have a clue how to fix it

2nd EDIT:If I comment out the above line ( mgc_cb_evo_functions.js Line: 2109 ) it works fine except usernames don't display,if thats any help lol
