Hey,

Sorry if I missed it in the thread at all. But I was wondering if there is a way to change what the default channel is. As due to usergroup permissions, people who I don't want to be able to see the default channel can. Can't see an option in any of the tabs in the admin panel.

Also Im getting this weird problem. I have 3 usergroups that are having a problem. Members, active members and X. Basically X is a secondary usergroup that some members and some active members have. I have only changed the mgc settings in the usergroup settings for X. Regular members with X can see the chatbox and everything but active members with X can't see it. Any idea why that might be happening? I only want members with X to be able to see it.

Thanks

Is it their default usergroup?
Are the usergroups set up to inherit each others permission?

BUG REPORT

Subject: [SIZE] restriction overrided

Description: An user can override the [SIZE] tag restriction so they can send chats without any size restriction.

How to reproduce the bug
Writing a chat with this format:
[SIZE=2][SIZE=7]Message[/SIZE][/SIZE]

That will display a message with SIZE 7

I hope this gets fixed for the next release.

Thank you.

Still on its way, I think I am 50% done with the chatbox, I have nearly finished modifying archives to work with vB4 (there were bugs by the way on the current version that I encountered and fix on that page).

Anyway I am going on slowly as I take the time and don't spend all my evenings on it

I think end of the month beta will be ready.

You can disable main channel and order the channels to do so.

I think this is due to vB way to handle permissions as I use vB code for that.

It's not a bug, I can't avoid that. The options just restrict the dropdown sizes display that's all.
If the user enters it manually then it will be displayed size 7.

I use vB bbcode parsing function so unless you avoid it for all the forum you will have to stay with that behaviour.

For some reason, usergroup permissions do not show for me at all..I see the custom parameters but not the permissions in the usergroup settings ..so I can't turn it on.
