Hi VBDev,

Really nice mod!
But few questions remain:

And here is after highlight...


So how do i change the text color so its black or something.
sorry I couldn't find your hint (cause I'm really to dumb to imagine what to search for). Is it possible to give it again? Thank you in advance.

Another question: I changed the refresh time from 30 to 10 or 20 seconds for various user groups but nothing seems to change. I watch the refresh icon and it moves like before after 30 seconds. Any ideas?

I also have the prob that usersonline works a bit weird. I understand there is a bug in that feature. Is it planned to fix it with next version?


Thanks for your help!

Hey VBDev,

I re-tested your chatbox on my localhost (Yahoo YUI on localhost too, IE no access to internet) and have this error :
Erreur : e.get is not a function
Fichier source : ./clientscript/mgc_cb_evo/mgc_cb_evo_functions.js
Ligne : 1

Maybe this will help.

See you.

- One quickie side question: Is there a quick way to force a new sound? I uploaded a new wav file (new_chat) and overwrote the current one but I doesn't seem to take.. I cleared my browsers cache - re-checked the path and still hear the old one.

Also: Is it's name something I can go change in the code somewhere?

(thanks)

Does it still look like that after it completes loading? (Mine looks like that until the chats footer loads and then the alignment is perfect.)

.yui-skin-sam .bd {
color : #000000;
}

If I implement this admin can do what they want like typing small commands or whole text.

Up to you to set a command and its replacement.
Bingo! That's all I asked for =)

Thanks for the reply!

Happens with call from Yahoo server on, or off.
Does it happen with chatbox mod disabled ?

thanks you VBDev
Hum it might be possible that the default permissions that are taken into account by vB permissions are the primary ones. This how vB behaves.

Well what is slow ? The page load or the chat load ?

Are you sure you updated the files ? (refresh your browser cache perhaps your browser is still using old version of js files)

It appears that it's the archives only.. not the downloads and not in the chatbox itself (during real time)


I've checked every setting and can't seem to determine why this is the first I've heard of it..

Thanks
There used to be such problem in version earlier than the current one but I had fixed it.

Have you been able to confirm this yourself ?

Normally if you change the refresh rate in your usergorup permissions it's applied, unless you didn't set it.

Yeah it's planned. However next release won't be before june, I am moving from location on the first week of june so have to prepare lots of things before

That big gap must dissapear once the chatbox shows the chat and the loading... sentence has dissapeared.

Isn't it the case ?

It's because sound was moved to flash instead of wav.

Yeah but the gap should be one or two br but not that much space.

Depends of how you set it. It's reported as less than vBShout.

I am still working on optimizations though. Next version shall be a bit less intensive.
