Well the Ajax error you had is strange because you only should encounter this when using vB3.6 ! Are you still getting this error ?

Yes I'm!
This is my first time I install this plug in , I Update the vb version to 3.8 2 days ago.

In your AdminCP under MGC Chatbox Evo, Input field size
Diminish this value if you have problems with the chatbox size with your style or if you simply want to change this size. (In pixels)

Drop the number down until the scroll bar disappears

The screen displays "Loading.." if you use firefox. I was facing the same issue, but used IE and didnt get "Loading".

Solution -

I was getting the error because of the "NoScript" plugin used by me, to block advertisments.

You will need to allow the yahoo server site .

This was removed due to the new channel unlimited creation system.

But some other ask me for that so if anyone else is interested here I'll add it back.

Well you should have carefully read the readme, there are uninstall instructions that were written for users to read them

Remove the chatbox files from your ftp and things will get back to normal (especially the one in the includes/xml directory).

Have you try to setup the chatbox as loading yui files locally instead of the yui server ?

Same as above, read the uninstall instructions ...

To fix your mistake, remove the chatbox files from your forum. Especially the one in the includes/xml directory.

Hey guys this is my first ever post on here so Hi!

I am a beginner at coding and using vb in general and i was wondering if you think i would be able to install this?

Im looking for a shoutbox that wll allow people to upload custom avatars and a few other things and this sound prefect for me..

Do you think i should give it a go or is it too complex for a beginner?
