The smilies thing is still behind the italic and underline control. Also the CMS error is still there.

I don't know about speed and server resources, but personally I think VSa is way more user friendly.

Even after uninstall I get the following error when trying to promote an post to article

Warning: unserialize() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in [path]/packages/vbcms/controller/content.php(84) : eval()'d code on line 6

Good thing it is only on my test forum.

VSA is a much more "normal" chatbox - but GCBOS framework is simpler and I had it running in the CMS easily. But I did not like the "typewrite" effect.... AND I am still looking for a chatbox with sound alerts. MCG has taken over development of MCG Chatbox and that might be the best option - however... MCG has ALOT of overhead...

I may dump all these box chats and go with arrowchat once it is released.

Okay I love this, but it says, "Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing." How do I fix this?

If you read through the thread you would see that the promote/create article issue is not new and was a problem from first release.

Upgraded and now when I go to submit a message I get this error:

Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.

$65.00 for something that is not as good as free, I don't think so. That is the pre-sale price without any kind of demo. Since this is the second time you have metioned this in this thread I assume that you must have some kind of connection to the people who made it or I should say are making it.

Hello,

the color dropdown is not working also after the update into Safari browser:
So you can choose the colors and if you click one you also see it but the dropdown is complete white. It would be nice if that can be changed (see also screenshot).
