Have had this mod on for quite some time now and has worked flawlessly until this week. We took the forum down and changed domains and reinstalled and updated it. Now, in Internet Explorer and Safari, users get a big red X and the word new that is to the left of the date along with the messages no longer lining up correctly. Any help on this?

To fix the smile, search in template vsa_chatbox_input

look for {vb:stylevar imgdir_editor}/smilie.gif

and change smilie.gif to smilie.png

this is because of the new icons...

Any ideas how to have it work on other Languages too ?
To solve this, go to the language manager, edit settings for the language with problems, and clear out in the Date/Time Formating, for example i use spanish and this is how it should look!
