Installed and working good except for USERGROUPS.
I searched this thread to see if I am wrong but it seems that you cant use a particular USERGROUP that can see the chat box.

I have set up a Custom User group for a "basement" of users and wanted to be able to limit access to those user only. But they are also Regular users under the default UserGroup. Right now they are blocked from seeing the CHAT because they also belong to Regular group.(Regular users are blocked from seeing the chat).

Is there a way to Include a group instead of only excluding a group? It seems my only option right now is to set up a subforum with the chat in it.

Am I seeing this correct?

I tested it in safari, firefox 3, and opera 9.5. Not tested in IE6/7 so if someone will please test there, thanks.

I also fixed a bug with the refreshing of the chatbox, not it will reset the refresh timeout after every submit so that you do not get lots of refreshes when submitting alot of messages.

And a bug where the character count is not reset successfully after each message submission.

And lastly I added a loading indicator..
404 Error
Does someone have this file to share please?
Or perhaps CYBERNETEC - can you share the template edits?

Thanx,

Jacquii.

Hi Cyb. Is there any way to remove the font size drop down from the chatbox? My skin doesn't quite work with it.

Thanks.

I will make a new update of the changed template sometime soon as there is a new version there is no point in giving the old template.

It would be nice if you could integrate both styles of the chatbox and let users choose which to use.

Thanx for responding - I do like the idea of implementing both styles so Admins can choose.
Thanx,

Yay! Will look forward to your post - Hopefully CYBERNETEC will implement both styles in the next update though so we can choose.

Thanx,

I have set the minimum post requirement to see the chat box to 60.
But some of members with post lower than 60 just go to chatbox via the link:
http://link/misc.php?do=cchatbox

Could I do something to prevent that? :-?
It really annoy me
