FAQ
Q: My board uses UTF-8 or another nonstandard charset how can i fix this?
A: because UTF-8 is not vBulletin's default charset the data is incorrectly displayed. The fastest way to fix this is to open your admin panel select "Languages and Phrases" then Language Manager. Now hit edit settings on the language you are using and 7 options down you will see "HTML Character Set" change this to UTF-8 (default is ISO-8859-1).

Q: GCBOS always says loading how can i fix this?
A: The header include hooks is either missing or not working simply view your pages source and check if you can see gcbos.js if you cant please re-read the installation instructions and make sure all the steps have been followed.

Q: My host uses PHP 5.3 or above how do i make GCBOS work?
A: It should work by default (GCBOS sets 'allow_call_time_pass_reference' to on at runtime) if this doesnt work consult your host

Support
If you encounter any bugs please post as much detail as possible to help me find a solution this includes SQL errors and screen shots if you are not comfortable posting the error please PM me.

Unhappy

Thanks for the mod, but I have a problem with it. I uploaded and installed it as mentioned above. But when I go to "/forums/gcbos.php?action=page" I get these messages, repeatedly.

Thanks in advance.

Can you open gcbos.php on the second line can you replace:

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

With

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

And tell me if this works for you?

If so i will include it in a future update along with some other minor tweaks.

If you're still getting the error, replace your current class_gcbos.php with the file in my attachment and problem solved.

hello,
in the above chat is actually a great pity Mod all the news not from the English speaking area come here to be ignored! For this mod does not work with special characters such as those in Europ. Space are common. UTF8 is just not the default character set of VB! Usually mods work with the character set iso so the usual character set are encoded properly.

Maybe I can enforce my post with an answer, otherwise only remains to uninstall. Too bad really.

Sorry I posted in the 3.7 version by accident

Anyway this chat just auto scrolls even if no one is typing a message ?

There should be a way to switch this off.

REgards
