After a long period of perfect performance, ChatBox will no longer remove the "Message..." text when clicking within the input box. This occurred when I tested on multiple machines and browser platforms. This problem exists on the full page version as well. Any ideas?

This hack is AWESOME, but can you please include an option to remove ":: Refreshing Messages" every time new messages are listed. It gets VERY repetitive lol.

Thank you!

I deleted the snippet of code which creates this message as a temporary fix, but consequentially the prompt is no longer displayed. Many members are confused as to how post a chat message and this text directed them accordingly. Any ideas?

This appears to be the result of a conflict created by the latest version of Keyboard Navigator. I created a corresponding post there.

How can we make this Chatbox run smoother, it seems to take a lot of server CPU power.

Monetise chatbox?

Using this on my forum now and it is going down very well, thank you for the hard work. I'm installing a few of your mods at the moment - all very handy.

1) My only complaint about the chatbox is that when the box refreshes it bounces down to the last post, this makes reading previous posts very difficult, can this be fixed?

2) Is it possible to monetise this chatbox? Given that say 30 people could be chatting at a given time and it is refreshing every 10 seconds it would be very cool for this to have a banner tied in that could be plugged into AdSense... don't you think?

Thanks again for all the work!

And is there a clean way to remove the 'delete all messages' option without affecting the other modding capabilities? That's located a bit too conveniently in the pulldown menu for a function that powerful :)
Posted this in the 3.7 thread, before I noticed a 3.8 one :)

Anyway, figured it out and also modified the chatbox to hide the archive from unregistered guests.
Reason for the latter being that people seem to be using it as if it were IRC, and occasionally say things they probably don't want to show up on google.





Remove moderator 'delete all posts' button
Removing the following code in the cyb_chatbox template:

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





Add conditional to block unregistered and other usergroups from chatbox archive
Find the following code in the cyb_chatbox template:

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


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





Replace with:

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


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

Replace 1/10/100 with your preferred usergroup numbers (for example unregistered, coppa, awaiting email moderation and banned).

One minor issue though: the chatbox doesn't register unread messages properly for some reason. I've posted my first message about 90 mins ago, posted about 50 more since and it still shows that first message as the 'first unread' one... I don't see any related cron jobs in the 'scheduled task manager' though so I'm wondering how this particular field is updated?
This issue's still there though. I reckon it has something to do with session length, but I'm not sure.

And I also found out that so called 'censored words' are properly processed on all cyb chatbox pages, but the 'replacement variables' are only applied at the chatbox archive. We use replacement variables on our board as a more creative way of censoring certain offensive words (replacing them with the exact opposite being my favourite), and for some reason these aren't processed on the 'forumhome' mini chatbox - showing them in full glory instead.

It's designed that way, if you want to scroll further down you should use the chatbox archive :)
Alternatively, go to your admin CP -> vB options -> Cyb - chatbox, and change the following two values: "Messages to show in ChatBox/ChatBox Full" and "Message listing area height (ChatBox Full)" to something higher.

"ChatBox Full" on navbar
by bmckinley
13 Aug 2009 13:00

I have had several members tell me they thought the link on the navbar that reads "Chatbox Full" indicates the chat room is full of people and no more may enter (they are emphasizing the "Full"). How do we change the navbar item to just read "ChatBox" or "ChatBox Open"?

Barteh 13 Aug 2009 13:31

admin CP -> languages and phrases -> search in phrases -> chatbox full -> the right phrase should be in the search results. Replace with "click me", "turnip" or whichever other term you prefer.

private chat?

Is there still no way to have private chat with this chatbox?

This is getting to be a real problem!

Could someone help me figure out how to make the chat box open as a vbulletin page by itself?
