Is it possible to enlarge the viewable area of the chatbox when it's shown on the forum index at the bottom? I looked for code in templates and couldn't really find what I was looking for. I'd just like to increase the height a small bit. Sorry if this has been asked/answered, as I couldn't find it.

Excellent mod btw... all of your mods are very stout & professional, and the most reputable thing about you is the incredibly easy installations of your mods. Many people make great mods with crappy installations that deter people from even bothering with trying the mod. That is never the case with Cyb mods. Keep up the good work.

Would it be possible to add in the ability to have a user defined setting of whether they want to see the chat box or not?

A custom profile field that would have the choices

View chatbox - yes
View chatbox - no

Then when the forum home loads, it checks that variable and displays the chatbox only if the option is set to yes.

The reason I ask is because at my site, one user has the whole forum blocked by web filters when the forum displays and tries to load the chatbox.

WHat I had to do was create a new usergroup and put him in it and setting that group as not allowed to view chatbox. Now, he can visit the forum, but when he logs on from home, he can't see the chatbox. If he had the ability to turn it on or off in his Usercp, that would solve the problem.

As it stands now, I had to make a new user account for him to log on from home so he can use the chatbox.

Thanks for a great product and apologies for the rambling in relation to a suggestion.

Of course I will upgrade all of my hacks for 3.7, but not for beta versions. Once 3.7 final is released I'll upgrade my hacks asap.

Well it sort will but I wouldn't suspect the final version to be done for another 3 months or so if calculations are right.

Is there anyway to make a private chat? We have a Leadership forum for our club that only certain user groups can see. I would like a chatbox in that forum that would be private to that forum only.

Thanks for any help,
Great Mod,
Keith
