Thanks for the info BoRoU. I guess this is style/language related.

So adding "%" before time/date format parameters in hack options fixes problem where date/time is not show properly on some forums. Examples: month = "%m", day = "%d",... etc.

If you have no problems with the time and date you should NOT add % as it will be printed as is. So use "m" for month, "d" for day,... etc.

You set this color in hack options and it will be used for all "/me" action messages.

I believe the date problem is because in different languages (with a different locale) vb uses some other function instead of date(), with different parameters

Found it, in vbdate() description

* @param boolean If true, and user has a language locale, use strftime() to generate language specific dates

check strftime() in php.net for the list of date formats used

actually, you should use the forum's default date formats, or warn people to use the right format if they use a different locale.

or I may be completely wrong and this all isn't the case.

edit: someone beat me to it

Damnz, another hack by Cyb... Santa Claus is early this year! Great work Cyb!

One question tho: When it comes to server load, how is this chatbox compared to chatboxes like Shoutbox 2.0, Inferno Shoutbox and MGC Chatbox? Is it the same, lower or higher?

A feature which I would love to see is that new threads are being announced in the chatbox.
Another feature which I would really need in order to use this chatbox is vBAdvanced Compatibility. Are you going to make something for vBA soon? Or is it already present?

Oops, my mistake.
Having followed your instructions for display within vBA, it worked perfectly, once. When I reloaded the page the shoutbox was not there anymore. Any ideas.
Works perfectly within the forums.

p.s. I have vBA installed in root and the forums in /forum/ directory if that helps.

when I re-imported the update and over wrote, I now have 2 shoutboxes on the VBA portal....


Edit, if I take this out ($cybchatbox) of the template it goes back to 1 shoutbox showing instead of 2

I have a couple Mac users that are having trouble with the chatbox. Keeps crashing when they try to post a message.

Any ideas?

Yes, template edit is not required if you enable automatic insertion of CB below navbar or above footer.

Unfortunately I have no Mac to test this and make a fix.
