CYB Chatbox external javascript

Hey everyone,
Is there any way we can put the javascript of the CYB Chatbox in a file? It would surely decrease the page load, and source of the page wouldn't be so messy either.

I tried to do it myself, but it wouldn't load the Chatbox, I assume it's because it loads it like a normal js file, and variables probably can't work.

Any ideas? Thanks...

I'm not a js expert, but I think you should just be able to put the code in a file and put a <script> tag in the html. Did you put <script...> in the same place you took out the code?

Yeah, of course. But the problem is that js has variables, and when you put it in a file and go directly to it, variables won't work - obviously!

It works if it isn't external. :/

Oh, you mean that it has template conditionals and PHP variables (javascript also has it's own variables, so I didn't understand what you were getting at).

What you can do is find all the PHP variables it uses, then put them in a template that outputs js code that simply sets a js variable to that value. Then change the js code (that you're trying to move to a file) to use the js variables, and change the template conditionals to js 'if' statements.

Another way would be to set the src of the scirpt tag to a php file that renders the template and returns the js. But that way you wouldn't be able to allow the browser to cache the output which I guess is the point of doing this.

Edit: The headinclude template already has a section that sets js variables, it looks like this:

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

You could add yours there, but you'd probably want to have some sort of template conditional around it so you weren't putting it in every page (like maybe <if condition="THIS_SCRIPT == 'misc'">)
