  • [Official - Free] Temporary fix for the vBMessenger popup issue in Chrome 59

    Starting Chrome 59, the vBMessenger chat window opens in a new tab instead of popup. See related discussion in vbulletin.com here.

    Upon investigation, I found out that Chrome doesn't like location=yes or location=1 window popup features when calling window.open() in Javascript. This option turns off/on the browser's location bar and this used to be allowed. But it has long been disallowed for security reason (e.g. any malicious script could open a login popup window without address bar to pretend it is a login page from a bank). So it looks like Chrome 59 decided to ignore the entire specified window popup features if it has the unnecessary "location" option. Setting location=no or location=0 doesn't work anyway, so it is a useless option.

    I opened a JIRA for this issue at http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-17444 to remove the location option in window.open. I don't know when vBulletin will fix it. I have a temporary workaround solution below if you can't wait for the official fix.

    Copy and paste the Javascript code below to head_include template in Style Manager in AdminCP.
    Code:
    You need to be logged in to view the code. Login or Register now!
    For vBCloud, editing templates is not allowed. But you can utilize the Search Engine Verification option in AdminCP > Settings > Options. Set "Enable Google Ownership Verification" to Yes. Paste the code above to the "Google Ownership Verification HTML tag" textbox. If it already has existing code there, don't overwrite it and just paste the code below it.

    Watch out for the JIRA status. Once it's officially fixed by vBulletin, you should remove this temporary solution.
