durnit, I was tweaking my profile and seemed to have screwed something up.

When logged off. the shoutbox is visible. However when I log in, it disappears.

I've tried using both skins "Clear blue fluid" and classic vBulletin

I've gone to User CP -> Edit Options -> Show the chatbox (at the very bottom), no matter how many times I set the options to "yes" it continues to revert back to "no"

Tried different browsers, tried cleaning cookies and cache :( no luck

Tried logging in making sure to have the site "remember me" so there's no question of the cookie state when I navigate the site

I even tried undoing all the changes to my profile... no result. :wacko:

addendum: tried from a different PC too:wacko:

Ok Secret,

I changed a few more things...

Do the whole shtick this time (update/clear Java cache/reboot/zap cookies/clear browser cache) and whatever else you can think of... then try one more time please.

If this doesn't work, we'll just have to wait for Doc to check it out. :hmm:

nada again

Since I've done this from different physical computers it's most likely server side :( oh well, thanks for staying up late and trying ^_^

Gone for all of us I think Joa.. At least it doesn't show up for me either. ^^;

Hopefully it's getting an upgrade or something.. cause it wasn't working right from the start anyhoo.

It might have been removed. Dr.H will have to confirm this.

Dr.H and I had been discussing if we really needed to keep the chatbox. It was originally intended to tie us over until the chat room had been restored after the last major forum upgrade. Now that the chat room is fully restored, the chatbox seemed to become a repository for tech support which we would prefer to keep in the troubleshooting threads and off the main page.

An upgrade came out for the Chatbox so I deleted it to install the new one but I haven't yet installed it since as Masa said we're unsure if we really want to still have it.

Have to agree with Joa.. Otherwise.. how can I put some of the inane things I decide to type from time to time?

I was referring to the shoutbox...

One in the same thing I think Joa.. I found it a fairly handy thing, especially for inane items of no value except for humour.
Oooh yeah and the occassional.. Tech support ^^;

Yeah Chatbox and Shoutboxes are the same. I think people were confusing with the "Who's Chatting" Box.

That's what I meant.

I haven't seen it since I started this thread ^^ oh well.

Yes, it's a shoutbox but the name was MGC Chatbox... go figure.

New Chatbox is back on the main forum page but it doesn't work with the old module code yet so it will be a bit until it shows up on the homepage again.

So just remember to keep any tech support problems to that forum and not the chatbox please ;).
