Add to Thread Top or Bottom

I run a baseball forum, and I make a game thread for each game.

How do I add the ChatBox to the top or bottom of the daily game thread. Can be in all game threads, but only to threads in the game sub-forum.

Everytime I try and upload it, it stops at 80% and redirects me to an error page like I don't have connection to the internet almost.
I have the same problem, I'm not install, hangs at 80% and then by mistake. Were you able to install it or you gave up?

Has anyone managed to work a way around the iOS 6 issue where the chatbox doesn't refresh while using the Safari Browser? Seems to affect all phones bar the iPhone 5. It is related to Apple deciding it would be a good idea to cache AJAX POST/GET.

Three questions.

How can we make the chatbox fit above our forumlist when we're using the sidebar feature? Has anyone managed to figure this out? We'd like it much like the MGCChatbox

How can we change the color background of the text input box? Our forum default font is white, due to the fact we use a dark background.

And last but not least, any way to force the chatbox to load at the last message, not the middle of the message list?

editor_background controls that, but you probably don't want to change your editor box background, too.

Go into your vsa_chatbox template.

Search for this:

Change the StyleVar that follows {vb:stylevar from editor_background to formrow_background and then formrow_background will control the background there.

You can use any StyleVar; I just chose formrow_background for mine since it is like a form.

That can be done via its options.

I believe the options you are referring to puts the chatbox on a specific forum page. What I want is to have it appear at the top of each forum section. It's the show chatbox in templates option that I need more info on. I'd like to have it appear at the top of each forum section page and at the top of new posts searches.

I'm sure I can figure out which templates need to be added with some experimentation but I was hoping to save myself a little time if anyone knows the specific templates that need to be modified and added to the show chatbox in templates option.

OK,

Been searching high and low. I managed to get the Text Display area changed from the Default WHITE to the same as the forums. However the Text Entry Field is still white, and the Default text Entry color is also White. (Difficult to read to say the least)

There's been reference to changing one thing or another in the templates, or style manager, but nothing really straight forward to follow for those of us who are not very literate on how all the templates, Style Sheets and variables all interrelate.

All I would like to do is either get the Default Text Entry colour changed (ie: the colour used when typing) from White to something else, Black? Salmon maybe? Anything that can be read other than White on White :P

Thanks in advance....

Found it...

Took a while, way WAY back on like page 28 or so. But this seems to do the trick for changing the text input field without messing with the rest of the forum...

Excellent MOD

in the vsa_chatbox_input template will make it white (as you can see by the #fff). Just change the hex code to whatever color you wish. Be careful in the color you choose though because the color of the text is variable depending on what color you're typing in. You can make that static though by changing the variable which is right before this text under "color:".

I am having a problem anonymizing the posted links on the chat. I try to use anonym.to to hide the referrer.

I tried adding the code into all templae files of the vsa_chat but still Its showing sometimes and when I scroll its functions disappears. I am unsure what is happening.. comes and vanishes lol.

Hopefully someone can help with a way to blank the referrer of urls posted in the chat, maybe @valter
