    Module also shows interface to allow frontend users to create and manage rooms.
    In Joomla 1.6-1.7+ you should configure these to show module on standard templates: Status: Published, Position: position-7 (usually left column), Module Assignment : On all Pages, then [Save&Close].

  • Set Error Reporting = Simple from Global Configuration > Server as notices and warnings can break parameters.
  • Disable/configure any SEO/ad injection components to not alter these components and modules. Changing links or adding extra content to component output will usually cause flash application parameter errors.
